Remember when I said I was planning a big etsy update at the end of the summer?
Well, I recklessly made that statement less than a week before we suddenly found a new house and decided to move. (Lesson learned.) Many of you have been asking about more aqua, red, and pink quilt kits. The pieces are all cut and I was planning to assemble them in August, but with the drastic change of plans this event will be postponed. Sorry. The good news is: the pieces are cut and once we are living in our new house and I'm not making three 40 minute round trips to the new school every day I should be able to throw these babies together quickly. Thank you for your patience.
It has been very cathartic to pack all of our earthly belongings. ("Hah!" you snigger, "Just wait until the bitter end. . . ") Which, truthfully, I haven't got to the bitter end yet and expect to be extremely sick of looking at boxes by then, but in the mean time I am purging like it's going out of style. Just gave away our high chair and changing table. And more. And it feels SO GOOD.
It has also been a great chance to play with, I mean, go through all my fabric stash. And I plan to purge a lot of that too. So watch out, etsy.
(Remember this quilt? Truthfully, I didn't! Embarassing. But I was so happy to see it again and there it is, ready to go to its new home.)
In the mean time our house is covered with boxes and my boys are in heaven. They are building labyrinths, caves, cannons, and condominium complexes for their stuffed animals in the living room. Perfect because I am packing up (and getting rid of some of) the toys. And then when we unpack them in a few weeks: Voila! New toys again!
And just in case we need to mount up quickly and head for the hills, we are ready.
Because you never know when an egg carton, water bottle, plastic knife, sand shovel and water balloon might come in handy.
