The fun has begun !!!

No I haven't been kidnapped by strange little grey men or stitched my treasure map for 12 hours a day. Nope, I just did that:

We had a visit today: an old lady who lives in a house and may have to live in an appartment now as she's getting old. So I decided that maybe it was the begining of the visits and I should start packing even though it was a little early (but actually I now think it is a good thing to pack early because we have so many stuffs that I better start early !!!) I also scrubbed the house to make it sparkle ( I hate cleaning )

And this is what you get when your daughter think it's pretty cool because she's going to help you packing A pile of carton boxes is THE perfect desk ...:

I also take advantage of the future move to sort things out ( understand: throw away toys ) Two bags so far (just the begining. don't tell the kids, I told I was just throwing away the broken toys bad mama ... )

Now let's talk talk about fun stuffs: stitching !!!

Look at what I got on wednesday in my mail box: Becca had asked me if I got a copy of the halloween ornaments mag. Of course, from here, I can only drool over them on my keyboard and Becca offered to send me a copy of the mag. She is a very generous lady. Then later, she added she sent a little surprise !!! And what a surprise: the christmas ornament ( that's when my keyboard stops to work drowned under too much water ) Thank you, thank you Becca: this is so nice of you to think of me and send me such a nice gift You really made my day and I am so happy. I love Becca's blog and we share many stitching taste. She often stitches something I then NEED right away

My old guy is getting stinky by himself: I haven't touched him ( don't imagine anything ) since wednesday evening and once again I feel I stitched backward: yep, I had to frog some town's names So no pic: sorry for the addicted ones

Now my back is very achy and I'm going to sit on my couch and S T I T C H !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By the way, sorry, I wasn't able to comment on your blog lately: too busy breaking my back ...

Great progress on the packing and purging. Sorting through stuff as you pack it and getting rid of things you don't need is the best idea. That way the unpacking is easier and you also are not paying to move things that you then just get rid of.

Love the stitching magazines. You are very lucky lady.

Woot!! I got my Christmas ornie mag through yesterday too and have already started stitching one! x

YAY! I'm glad the magazines arrived. Didn't take as long as I thought it would. Glad I could brighten up your day. Happy stitching and I also love your blog. I espically love looking at your new fabric stash and your WIP pictures.

Good luck on the packing..what a chore it's going to be.

I'm in the same position right now too and packing and sorting really isn't any fun :oS I have thrown out more stuff than I ever thought possible and there's even more to go! LOL!

That was SO sweet of Becca! I'm glad you were able to get ahold of those great magazines :o)

Awww... seems a shame to throw away good toys. Isn't there some place you can donate them to?

How cool to get the JCS mags!

Love the pic of Emma using the boxes and "helping' by making them into a writing desk. This is truly a young girl's idea of helping out.!
