Sew & Tell ~ Moving

The week was filled with packing materials, boxes and lifting... BUT the move has been made and Mom is pretty well settled into her new apartment. 

 It took four "movers", two trailers and five vehicles in one load, followed by a second load on two trailers with a few straggler items in vehicles again.

We were all numb by late afternoon on Friday.  But no one was injured, and there were no damages to any of Mom's belongings. 

The work of clearing the house out in preparation for a garage sale and the sale of the house begins... 

Other than the move, the only thing that I have to show is this paper embroidery.  I've been working on this piece for several weeks. It was the perfect creative activity for me to focus on for a few minutes each evening.  Knowing that God's hand was in all of the arrangements and details of her move was comforting.

This week's feature is Diann at Little Penguin Quilts.  She showed off her Paducah Star quilt that measures 48" square.  I love that a simple traditional block became a modern looking quilt and her colors are gorgeous. 

Diann also shared her My Heart block from the Pieces of My Life Sew Along as well as her story of life-long friends and how she met her husband.  Jump over to her blog to read all about it. 

Speaking of Pieces of My Life... There will be two new patterns released this week ~ Have you been keeping up?  Are you using the memory pages that I have developed?

Interested in getting the pages?  Send me an e-mail with the subject line of "newsletter" and I will add you to my list. 

Gotta go!

Keep Piecing,

Hope your mom is doing okay with it all. Thank you so much for featuring my star quilt and heart block in today's post - what a thrill to see them when I opened up your post! I'm enjoying your QAL so much - delightful blocks and good stuff to think through while making and writing about them. My fusible batting should be coming this week, and I'll start on the qayg step!

  5. Glad that part is over, right? That is a big undertaking. Are those photos taken where she is moving from? That is such a pretty view - makes me want to move there!

  6. So glad the move is over and that it went smoothly. Hopefully your mom will settle in quickly. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  8. Wel done to the moving crew. It is a big job but I’m sure glad to hear it was safely done with no damage to property or bodies. Good luck getting the house ready for garage sale and sale.
