Yep, I made a start. With packing. Unbelievable, eh?! I started with the above tea set that used to be my grandmother’s. Isn’t it pretty? I have it all boxed up now for a safe move. All the rest of the crockery will just get dumped in a washing basket inbetween tea towels and taken straight from one kitchen cupboard to the next. Since we are only moving 10 min away, I figure this will work well. We shall soon see, for they assure me we are GETTING THE KEYS TOMORROW! Sigh… seeing is believing.
In the meantime, I managed to find a use for my envelope opener from Saudi:
If there was any doubt that I am a hoarder, this proves it. I got this envelope opener, along with two others, from a guy at the souvenier souk (market) in Riyadh. 8 years ago. He gave us one each for the kids who were then 9, 7 and 5. Needless to say I didn’t give them to the kids, them being sharp implements, and put them in a drawer…. In the past 8 years I got rid of two of them….. since really, since when do we get letters other than bills and who wants to open a bill nicely???? I kept one for sentimental reasons and finally got a brain wave today. It comes in handy for packing! It slices the paper nicely, and the tape,for the box. Maybe I will keep it for another few moves….
Other than that, I finished appliqueing the crazy kitty, and started quilting it. Here is a quick photo of it, sorry it is dark, but it is night time…
I called Alice today. She is slowly going crazy and is sick of boxes. But she did unpack both machines, AND did the first jelly roll block 🙂 She is going to try to send me a photo from her phone somehow…. Her sewing room is unpacked and set up, and her kitchen is nearly ready. Priorities you know 🙂 Internet? Not for a while yet. She really needs to go to McDonald’s, have a cup of coffee and use theirs I think. Well, soon it will be my turn to be without the internet.. but hopefully not for too long, and not yet. I will warn you all when the time comes!
I’d better head for bed… the keys will come tomorrow.. the keys will come tomorrow….
