WOYWW...

Hello all.  I'm loading this up as an automatic post as I hate to miss out on the Wednesday fun.  Life here is pretty manic as you can imagine.  We have spent all day Monday and Tuesday chasing up the others in the chain of our house moving fiasco...we were told last Friday that we were all ready to move but of course there are three others involved in the chain.  We contacted our removal company to be told they were fully booked on the day we were hoping to move but thankfully they managed to rejig other jobs on that day and said they were able to move us.  But then others in the chain were unable to work as quickly as us and as I type this we are still awaiting conformation that our move can go ahead this Friday....I have no nails left and have spent many hours pacing up and down the floor like a caged polar bear!!!  If I hear more and can still access a computer I will update you later....if not I will ask Jo to do the honours for me as I know many of you are waiting to know.

So folks....you want to see my desk?....



I had drawers full of threads so here I'm in the middle of bagging then all up.



Bags filled they have been put into boxes and now they are all sealed up ready to go....what a lot of reels of thread I have lol



Here's a shot looking one way....boxes , boxes and more boxes!!!



Turn round and there are yet more boxes!!
My industrial machine has been drained of it's oil and all my other machines are now boxed and ready to go.


And, just in case I didn't have enough fabric to move, I had another visit from the gentleman who gave me bags of fabric before who came with another 4 bags full of fabric for me to use.  I feel so blessed to have it all and will have a fun time in my new home sorting it all and finding items I can make to make money for charity with it.






There you go....see?  No desk in use.  Just a lot of boxes but hopefully before too very much longer we will be in our new home and I can set up a new craft room to share with you all.

I have been informed by my darling other half that we may be without internet for a week or more so please forgive my absence....I will be back  :-)

Hugs,
Annie x

Oh Annie my love, what a nail biting time it is indeed. Fingers and all else crossed for you. I was wondering what you were doing up at this early hour (I just am awake) but see you are scheduled.
Do hope the move can go as planned, look forward to hearing, whether it is via Jo or not, that you are now unpacking boxes for a change.
I am saying with a friend who is moving and tomorrow we are going to see the new home so I can understand how excited you must be.
I wish you every happiness in your new home.
Love, Neet xx 11

Oh Annie, so frustrating when you think it is all systems go and then someone down the chain says 'whoa', can't do that day.
Praying that it will all work out for you on Friday and you can show us all the pics of the new sewing room being put together.

Thinking of you this week and fingers crossed (and everything else)that all goes according to plan, x

Elizabeth said...

Oh, Annie, I so wish everything would sort itself out for you so that, after all the disappointments, you are able to move on Friday as planned. I could have done with a rake through all that thread on Monday when I was trying to find a particularly difficult shade of green/light khaki/whatever fabric ... it really is as difficult as that to describe :) Okay, I have my fingers and toes crossed for you and hope to hear that all has gone smoothly. Take care and good luck. Elizabeth xx

No wonder you have no desks in use! To be honest, I wouldn't want to be in your place! Good luck!

Well, you're a better woman than me . I'd have probably taken out my frustration on the poor chap..offloading four more bags onto me while I'm packing my life into boxes.! But as you say, there's fun to be had...and I hope, light at the end of the tunnel now. Good luck and safe moving gal..see you on the other side. Xxx

Hettie said...

I can only imagine what you are going through and send some hugs your way. I don't envy you whatsoever.

Keeping fingers crossed for you, moving is so traumatic. But then you get the joy of shopping your stash when you unpack : ). #4
