A friend of mine told me last week that I must be pretty good at moving by now. I suppose so. I have after all moved more than 17 times. The 17 are just while I was married. Before that, well, who knows how many times I moved. I lived in 6 different countries before we were married.. so,… that is a lot of moves.
I thought therefore, that I might give you some moving tips. From a quilter’s point of view of course. These are instructions to be followed very closely, and make for a stressfree move.
The week before you are to move, start a new quilt. Be good, use what you have. Don’t buy new fabric. This is so that you don’t need to pack as much fabric, you see. All those little bits you cut off can go in the bin instead of having to move them.
On the Saturday before you move, ask your husband to take you to the cute little quilt shop an hour’s drive away to buy the above parcel of fabric. You have researched it thoroughly – it is the cheapest place to buy the kit for Life is a Celebration, Homespun’s new block of the month. It is also for a very good cause – reasearching ovarian cancer. And you have saved money by cooking for the freezer, remember…
On the Sunday before you move, surf the web and join a new quilt along – Patchwork Round Robin. Get out your scraps (so that they are easier to move), and start on the first part:
Not only sign up for joining in on the Patchwork Round Robin, but also volunteer to help with the design. Just because you have a bright idea. And because you don’t want to pack. And because having fun is so much nicer than facing reality. I get to add to the design on the 22nd of March! Yay!
Go to bed on time! After all, you are moving TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!
