throw stuff in a box

I'm in the throw stuff in a box phase of the move. Middle granddaughter helped yesterday and oldest and middle granddaughters are going to help the next two days. We knocked out the entertainment center, hutch, cookbook shelf and the tins off the top of the cupboard yesterday. I'm hoping we can knock out the whole kitchen today and tomorrow. I'll go buy paper plates and plastic cups and silverware to use for the next couple of weeks. Since hubby isn't here I'm not cooking right now anyway.

I doubt if I get much sewing time at all over the next few weeks. I'm going to leave the machine until last to pack though. It'll go in the rolling tote and be put in the car anyway so there's no reason it has to be packed right away.

A girl and her car

My oldest granddaughter turned 16 the 7th. She got a car from her uncle. She's so pleased with it. Today was the first time she's driven to my house all by herself. So naturally I had to have a pic to commemorate the occasion.

Sail Away

I finally got the July wall hanging done. I am just not that crazy about red, white and blue. That probably has a lot to do with why it took longer to get this one done. I even had to buy fabrics for this one!

flames! flames! I get flames!

On my car that is. I'm so excited. I have a PT Cruiser and I have always thought it would look cool with flames. So yesterday we went to some friend's for the 4th and I asked him who did the flame paint job on his pickup and he said he did. One of the things he is most fond of in the whole world is my carrot cake. So I asked how many carrot cakes it would take to get flames on my car. He said five. We agreed to one carrot cake a month for five months and I'll get an overlay of pearl flames on my car. They'll start out white and go to orange. It'll be weekend after next when he paints it. I'll even post a pic!

A spot to land!

We found a lot we can buy. They're nice big one acre lots. We'll go pick which one we want next week. They have city water and electricity but a septic system. We can live with that.

Now to get started packing and get moved as soon as they get the house set up.

My new sewing room is bigger than the one I have now so I know it'll all fit, it's just a matter of arrangement. The closet is smaller though. There's an extra closet in the master bedroom that can take the overflow.
