Deepest love, and deeper thoughts ...


Here is the last 2 days progress. I'd like to make a prediction and say it's going to be another 28 day Mira Mermaid, but alas, that isn't meant to be. I'm moving. Again. At the end of this month.

I just moved a few months ago and so most of my stuff is still in boxes. BUT, I'm renting to own a large RV, that I'm going to live in for quite some time. As much fun as it is (not) to move, try figuring out what you're going to want to keep ... with little to no storage.

On the positive side, living this close to the coast I'll be able to take my trailer-trash behind out there and stay instead of hotel and all that expense. :o)

Everything I own is going. Except for clothes and mementos (crafts, pictures, 'puter, etc). I didn't realize how much crap I owned until it comes time to get rid of it all. And WOW, there is not a lot of places that really wanna take stuff, at least not on my schedule. I gave all my spare yarn to a lady that knits for charity. (All 6 garbage bags of it!!)

And from the cabinet of "you never realize what you had until it's gone" ... my GripIt Floor Stand bit the dust a few days ago. One of the reasons I can stitch so quickly is I don't have to hold my work - both hands are available. I've had this GI for about 3 yrs now and I love it. BUT, I've stripped one of the major bolts, a non-replaceable one either. *sigh* I just can't justify the expense right now but I miss it already.

Anyway - lovely evening ladies!

I am officially jealous!I lived on boats, and chassis built campers for about 7 years before I made the trip up the ladder to a bona fide "mobile home" (not so mobile though) and now I am in a real honest to gawd house. I have a love/hate relationship with this house and I really want to get back to my "roots" that have no roots...an RV type living situation again. I may, but my youngest daughter and I may also buy big property and build a teepee. We'll see!

Sounds like it's a great move for you! I'm decluttering in advance of a move too, and it's amazing how much stuff you have when you think about it....

Your deepest love looks fantastic. I love the fabbie she is on! You are such a quick stitcher! I found Mira's about 9 months ago and now it seems to be all I want to stitch. I am very interested in Fairy Moon!!

I'm stitching the same mermaid, I love seeing your progress pictures, you can see mines in my blog. I thought we're using the same kind of fabric.

Have you contacted the folks over at GripIt? I've always had wonderful service from them. My stand is from the early '90s.
