Almost Done Packing

sheri is moving to a new home

You know the game where you have to guess how many jelly beans are in the jar?  My house right now is a game of how many boxes are inside!  Lots of boxes.  Boxes everywhere.  But no complaints.  In less than 2 weeks I will have a new Home Sweet Home.

Will still be a renter, but for the first time will have a detached, no one above me and no one below me, house.  After 7 years living at my current forest abode it was time to go.  I was very tempted by several town homes and their pristine modern amenities, but most lacked the space I need to have a comfortable place with a dedicated room for sewing and working. So me and my buddy decided on a cute 2 story house back in Connecticut.  Yep after a dozen or so years of NY, its time to cross the border again back to where I first landed when I moved to the East Coast.  The super bonus of being back in Connecticut?  I get my Greenwich Beach Pass back again – yay!!!!

sewing room reduced to boxes

I’ve learned that I don’t have a lot of stuff except for one thing.  I have a ridiculous amount of fabric!  Those boxes pictured above, yikes, they are mostly fabric!!!  I like things to be clean, simple, and organized.  While I won’t go so far as to say I like an empty room.  I like just enough furniture and decorations to make a space warm and friendly.  But apparently that same “well edited” quality doesn’t apply to my relationship with fabric.  I want it ALL!  The better half was not far off when he commented this weekend that I could open my own fabric store.  Ouch!  So I am going to make myself an early New Year’s resolution.  I am not allowed to buy more fabric until I have made a serious dent in this pile.
