26 days and counting

Hi guys

just a very brief update - we have signed the new house contracts and we now have our completion date which will be exactly 25 days time.  There is one HUGE fly in the ointment in that the week we complete, I have to travel to The Netherlands for 3 days of business meetings immediately before we complete.  Needless to say this means that the house needs to be packed up ready for the removal lorry to come to the house on the Friday to move our boxes to the new house (no pressure).

While I made a token attempt of packing away person pictures etc ready for the house viewings, I have today started to pack away my sewing room, that being the most difficult one I think.

Its hard work - I have LOADS of stuff, so I made the decision that no more sewing will be done between now and the move, and to start boxing things up - sorting through, and throwing away anything that really is not essential.

A daunting task, but is not something I can delegate to someone else.

I hope you are all sewing up a storm - good luck to all of you who are entering the mini wardrobe contest and the lined jacket contest on PR both organised by two wonderful ladies located in TX - hopefully I have time to do some voting.

Catch you soon.........................


  1. Good luck on your move. It is a daunting job packing up everything especially when you have to be away just before it all gets hauled to your new house.
    Good luck on moving into your new house.

  2. I hope your move goes smoothly! Best wishes on your new home.

  3. Remember to pack, label boxes well and record what is in each box. Make sure that a couple of boxes contain what you need as soon as you arrive - coffee pot, bed linen and the like.

    And enjoy the new home.

  4. Wise decision Pauline to let the sewing go for the moment. Once you're settled again in your new home you will be sewing up a storm again, I'm sure of that. Good luck with everything.

  5. Hope it all looks fresh and inspiring when you unpack it all

  7. We'll be here once you are settled :) Good luck with the move!

  8. Good luck with the move, Pauline! Can't wait to see you back at the sewing machine :)

  9. Oh, yes, give yourself some breathing space. Having just gone through a more minor move, I know how stressful this can be. It will make sewing in your new space that much more enjoyable in the future.
