Well the packing is coming along. My sewing room is really just a packing and holding area right now. After I folded up the sewing machine table and packed up my machine I got a lot more done. I emptied all of the various drawers in my sewing room and packed up most of the contents. It seems there is always something that really needs to be packed with something from somewhere else and then I have to drag that into the sewing room and get it sorted out.
You can see my progress in these 2 photos. I have a couple of items to put in one of the boxes and then that can be sealed up. There are more boxes to pack and more that are packed in the other room but it is coming along.
This morning I took everything but the clock down from the walls. I got all horizontal surfaces cleaned off and started gathering all the photographs from all over. I am going to take most of the photographs out of the frames and put them in albums. Of course, as I am going through all of the photos from numerous boxes, I have to look at them. Oh my goodness, Jack and I sure have changed.
When we lived in a large house I never had to store things in boxes under my bed but I had been slowly adding boxes one at a time to the under - bed storage area. Today I dragged them all out. There were 7 - 32 quart plastic Rubbermaid boxes and 3 - 16 quart boxes. I guess it is good that we have a king size bed. I am going to need more than one large photo album. Not all the boxes were photos there are some Christmas and season decorations too.
I found one box full of summer pants and wonder of wonders..... they all fit. I think that when I put away dark and heavy clothes, I hung up the long pants to wear but it was still too cool for shorts or Capri's. I put them in a box under the bed rather than back up on the top closet shelf; then I forgot them. I did kind of wonder why I didn't have more summer clothes but I thought maybe they were too tight and I got rid of them. I feels like I've had and very successful shopping trip.
I didn't want to write a post with only pictures of bare wall and packing boxes and I have nothing new to show. I decided to show something that I made a few years ago before I started blogging.
