Quilt With Us

Wow, has it really been over 6 months since I last wrote a post?  This year has just flown by, and now it's time to up stakes and move.  Over my life time I've moved 14 times and it seems they have all been different in some way or another.  If you're wondering, yes, I married a military man.  Today has been a long exhausting day as it is the eve of our scheduled pack-out.  Exhausted because for the last few weeks I've been setting aside everything I need for the next 6 weeks including something to work on in whatever spare time I may have.

What have I set aside?  Hand sewing projects like small kits I bought a few years back.  My sketch book and journal in case I have any brain storm ideas or just need to doodle.  But, these days, my favorite stress relieving thing to do is crocheting.  No, I don't really need another scarf, or another set of mittens (especially where we're headed) but I still really love to make something to wear.  So, on to a new chapter, a new place I've never been and as long as I have my hand sewing projects for my comfort zone, it will all be great at the end of the day.

Crocheting, knitting, embroidery--anything that doesn't need a lot of space or concentration. Good luck with your move. I can blame my dad and the Navy for some moves but I made a lot of moves between college and marriage. I would have a bright idea, load everything I owned into  my car and     head out. Now, I never want to move again.

I'm sure you have moving down to a science, but still I don't envy you, especially this close to the holidays. A special thanks to you and your hubby for his dedicated service.

Time does get away from us...I was raised in a construction family. We moved at least once a year. We liked it... but said when I married, he would have to be a stationary guy! lol thank you for being a military family. Not easy...

I like to crochet once in awhile to to do something different. Living in NY there's plenty need to donate scarfs and mittens. Enjoy your new location...another adventure.

Hope this is a good move for you.  I'm sure by now you are a pro at packing and unpacking.  Thank your DH for his service for me - and thanks to you as well.  Being a military wife comes with is own set of sacrifices and challenges.  Crocheting is a good take-along project, because it usually doesn't take up much room.  Crochet hook and a little bit of yarn and you're good to go.  I've been knitting and crocheting up kitchen dishcloths out of cotton yarn.  Quick, easy, mindless work and they make good little gifts.    Keep us posted.

Glad to see your post Sandra, where are you moving to? Taking hand sewing along sounds like a great idea. I hope you'll continue to post so we will know how you are doing. Merry Christmas
