… instead of sewing….. ‘Tis a very sad fact of life….
When I headed back to Oz two months ago, I tidied up my sewing room and made sure I covered as much as I could with sheets and towels….
By the time I got back last week, the rest of the sewing room…. and yes, the whole apartment, looked like this:
After some trial and error I worked out that it was better to vacuum all the surfaces first, before I attacked them with a damp cloth…. less mud 🙂
Dust was not the only thing I found when I got back. Friends of ours who are leaving Arabia had some household items they weren’t taking back home with them to Germany. They asked if we needed anything, like pots and pans and odds and ends, and of course I said yes! We only came with our suitcases, so we don’t have a lot. Thanks to these friends and some others, I think my kitchen has what it needs now 🙂
So other than cleaning, I have been unpacking my suitcase and sorting all these things:
I now have a nice set of pans, some casserole dishes, too many glasses, wrapping paper and even a Christmas tree 🙂 There are a few things I don’t need, so I will pass them on, but I am very thankful that there was a lot of useful stuff in there.
Got a bit more cleaning to do tomorrow and then maybe, … just maybe… I can finally start sewing again…!
Hope you all are getting more sewing done than me!
