Moving, an update

Rearranging things

Mark and I have been sleeping in our new bedroom for about a week now.   All of the furniture is now in place and I finally finished moving my clothes up yesterday.  We’ll still be using the master bedroom bathroom, so I’m going to have to get used to having my clothes on a different floor, possibly even planning ahead enough to bring clothes down with me to the bathroom.  Luckily, I have a nice robe, so I won’t be running around naked.

The bedroom is in desperate need of things on the wall, a situation that will be remedied as we bring things home from the shop. Two main pluses for our new bedroom:  we aren’t directly on top of the furnace anymore:  when it kicks on we can barely hear it!  And the second is a plus now, but will be a minus this summer:  the room is SO much warmer, I’m able to sleep with fewer clothes on.  (Some nights I needed a sweatshirt on top of my flannel pjs.  Now I’m down to just the flannel, and could probably go with shorts and a t-shirt.)

I’m working on finding homes for all of my stuff in the new studio, a process that will take a sharp right turn in the next few weeks as I fill it up with everything from downtown.  I’m already trying to mentally prepare for a new way of operating:  a  place for everything, and everything in it’s place.  Every square inch is going to be in use, and it’s going to be interesting…

Shop Update

Apologies to those of you who have seen this either in the MQResource forums, or will be getting an e-mail newsletter…

The fabric at the shop is looking much thinner, but the yarn.  I’d still like to get rid of some more yarn, so, I’ve now got it all marked down by 40%, to maybe tempt some more shoppers.  I wish I had more sock yarn for all of you sock knitters, but one of the main things I have is 51 colors of Cascade 220 wool.  It’s great for felting, and felted bags are a great beginner’s project.  I also have a bunch of other stuff, and at 40% off…maybe I can get rid of some more of it.  I can only knit so much…

The fabric is all now marked down to 40% off as well, and I’ve listed bundles of fat quarters and fat 8ths in various combinations at crazy low prices, check them out if your stash could use some enhancement.

Most of the quilting and sewing patterns and books are marked down by 20% as well as some of the notions that I carry.

In Other News

I’m not sure I’m going to make it with the sock.  I’ve run completely out of steam.  I’ll keep going, and maybe I can pull out a miracle.

Lastly:  I actually turned on a sewing machine for the first time in something like 2 weeks.  Crazy.
