Our furniture arrived from GA yesterday and we’ve been very busy the last couple days. Today we had to have everything out of the temporary apartment, clean it, and turn the keys in by 12PM. I’m glad to be down to one place here in MN especially since we still have both the house and the condo in GA. No offers on the condo yet and Chris won’t move into the house until the end of January so still plenty to worry about there.
The bedroom I’d planned to use as my studio is smaller than indicated on the floor plan so I’m having to modify my plans. Luckily there’s a small den so I’ve set up my sewing machine, cutting table, iron, and computer desk in the den and will have my fabric storage, books, supplies and longarm in the bedroom.
I found a great shelving unit at Ikea and bought two of them. They take up the entire wall of the bedroom and I’m putting my quilting books on the bottom shelves, my yarn in bins along one side, and the rest will be for fabric. I have a lot of unpacking yet to do in the studio and I won’t set up the longarm until all the other boxes are unpacked.
I did find my string bins and my sewing machine so I may start making a few string blocks for the HeartStrings Quilt Project as I unpack the rest of the studio. I do have a deadline for my unpacking since I need Keith to help me set up the longarm table and he goes out of town on January 2nd so I can’t procrastinate too long.
Comcast is coming in the morning so I’ll have my internet set back up and will be able to post pictures again too.
