To-Do Tuesday 6-25-19 | It’s Been A Whirlwind

Sorry for another late post, friends. It is still Tuesday, at least, so I’m not too far behind.

My daughter’s dental appointment went well a week ago today, and last Wednesday we hit the road early in the morning. We drove for two and a half days and made it to Salem, Oregon on Friday around 12:30 PM. We have been running full steam ahead since then. Unloading, putting things away, and then immediately tackling some of the overgrowth here at the house. We also had some vehicle trouble on Monday evening, and thankfully Les Schwab here was able to get our vehicle in and fixed within an hour and a half! This was the only year we decided to bring a second vehicle up with us, and thank goodness for that! We needed it right away.

We still have a lot of work left to do here, so there is hardly any crafting getting done. As far as crafting goes, all of my supplies are pretty much on the floor in the loft. I think I need to figure out what kind of storage furniture I need and we may have to run up to IKEA to get a few pieces so at least I can get my supplies off of the floor. It is overwhelming to me, so I am sort of ignoring that area. It’s very discouraging to see it after all the work we did in the Arizona house to get such an amazing craft room set up. I just need to buckle down and come up with an idea of what I need to create a work area. I didn’t bring too much stuff, actually, just the basic tools and materials that I use to make bags, a couple of mini quilts, and one throw sized quilt kit. So it shouldn’t be too much work to get something set up there.

I have done some stitching, but not too much. I was able to get Part 3 of the Seas The Day SAL by Caterpillar Cross Stitch done the day before she released part 6. I’ve got some catching up to do, but I am going to put that aside for right now and this week I’ll be working on Forever and Ever by Cottage Garden Samplings.

  • Continue work around the house

  1. Your cross stitching is gorgeous, as always. Are you just away for the summer or is this a permanent move? I know what you mean about missing your sewing room when you travel, once you’ve gotten everything set up to be so functional at home. But those sewing machines in your picture were pouting, Christine — they want to come out and play… 🙂


  2. Wow! A lot’s been going on. I’m glad you have been able to go to Oregon this year! Your Seas by the Days is so cheerful and fun! Thank you so much for sharing and hosting such a great link up!
