Sunday happenings

Unpacked my scissors today!

From my front porch

It's nice outside today so I thought I would sit outside for a little while.

We put the barn quilt squares up over the weekend. I have a spot for one more - already ordered and will be waiting for me at quilt festival!

A little fall

I'm not much of a  decorating mood - not many flat surfaces to display stuff at the moment - but I was unpacking a box the other day and came across some fall stuff so I plopped some fabric pumpkins

and a little scarecrow up on the mantle.

Boxes, boxes and more boxes!

I wish I could tell you that all the boxes are empty and everything had found a new home but I can't say that. :(

I did find one box with stitching goodies in it.

Not that I have a place for them or time to  use them at the moment.

I posted these two pictures on Facebook. My sister said I have a problem. Huh? 

I've opened all the boxes that were marked either sewing or craft room but I haven't found my framed stitcheries that were hanging in there. The only boxes I can find that I haven't looked through are the ones that have hubby's name on them and I didn't pack those so I know they aren't in there. Guess I will have to go upstairs and see if he took a wrong box up there. They have to be here somewhere. I'm pretty sure that would have been a box I moved and didn't let on the moving truck. I've been thinking I must have put them in the storage unit but we emptied the last storage room yesterday and I have looked through those boxes. I'm trying to keep calm but if they have been lost I'm not going to be a happy camper. (I've found a few things that were broken but I have no way of knowing if it was during move #1 or move #2. Thankfully they have been things that weren't terribly important.)

Time to get back to unpacking. The chaos is doing a number on my anxiety and that's not a good thing.

Daily life

While this has been going on

My sister brought me this - I commented that I had broken mine while packing for the move and a couple of days later she showed up with it. :)

and my aunt sent me this - just the lampshade (isn't it awesome?!) that isn't the lamp I am going to use it on, just one that was handy to take the picture 

and I've done a little, and I do mean little, bit of this. Sorry about the weird angle - trying to get a pic without too much of a shadow.

We have about two more carloads of stuff in storage - at least I hope we can get it in two cars so we only have to make one more trip - then we will have everything here. Not sure where I'm going to put it all, but it will be here. It's easier moving into a larger house than it is going backwards! Yes, there will be a garage sale coming around soon.

Hope all is well with everyone out there in blogland (and everywhere else as well!)
