Packing Up



Posted by Picasa

Well Its packing up time and I cannot believe how much STUFF I have.OMG those boxes are just full of quilt books! and I don't have any book shelves in the new house. So much of my belonging here have been neatly stored in custom fitted shelving and storage cupboards. I got a feeling I am not going to be unpacking anytime soon.

The 3 chaps have been here all day packing up but I actually packed the books this morning as we seemed to be getting a little behind.
Shaun couldn't believe how many pairs of shoes I have and now calls me Imelda.They  will be back tomorrow to load the van ready for the off on Friday morning. 

So I am signing off for a while as I won't have Internet access for a couple of weeks then I will tell you if all went according to plan.

Meanwhile take a last look at my Cotswold stone house that I have called home for the past 14 years. Yes sad to be leaving but mustn't look back only forward.

I will have a lot of catching up on blogs when I am back on line so while I am away Happy Stitching to you all.


  1. I hope you have a smooth transition sue!
    Looking forward to hearing from you when you are settled -

  2. Good luck with your move Sue I so hope everything goes smoothly. We will have to really pull the cat from the bag so there will be something special to welcome you back to blogland!

  3. Of course you need that many quilt books!! You'll find a spot for them in your new place. I hope everything goes well with your move.

  4. New adventures all around for you! It will be fun to settle in and arrange your new home.
    We just last night returned home from a week in coastal Maine. The land of quilts! I saw numerous signs, but didn't stop to take al look. I would have wanted to cart a few home. ;-)
    All the best ~ Sarah

  5. I hope everything goes well Sue. I'll be thinking of you!!

  6. Your house is so beautiful!! And, sure, you need every one of those quilt books. Good luck to you. Share pics of your new place, please?!

  7. Sue I sincerely wish you well with the move, may you and Mery find comfortable new niches in your new house and eventually you will find just the right places to put up new shelving for all of those books you have. Take some time in between unpacking, it does not all have to be unpacked at once, try to relax cause take it from me moving can tire you to your very core. All the very best

  8. You have my number I hope if you need anything. Will be thinking of you and wishing you every happiness in your new home. I bought the Hunters Star ruler from Jo yesterday so I shall need a lesson when you are back in service. Love to you.xx

  9. There is no such thing as "too many quilt books". And besides, books are like old friends, they don't mind if you ignore them for a while, but always have something interesting to say when you see them.
    Hope all goes well with the move, and that you settle in happily, quickly.

  10. Here's to the next part of your roller coaster ride and on to the next big adventure!
    Your PIC XXX

  11. Hope everything for the move goes smoothly Sue. Look forward to reading your news from your new home.

  12. thinking of you and hoping the move goes smoothly
    and YES you need all those quilt books, they are a great way to spend an afternoon just looking thru, inspiration, learning about antique quilts.
    I guess buying a few book cases is in order!
    Have fun setting up your new home

  13. Only that few book boxes - you are not really trying!!! Good luck with the move and I hope everything happens as it should. Take care.

  14. That is a serious amount of quilt books, my girl!
    Hope all went well with the move and that you & Mery have settled into your new home, sans problem.

  15. Oh my gosh, Sue, you are really moving! It must be so emotional for you. My prayers are with you and Mery for a quick adjustment. Wish I was closer, I would buy your old house. :)

  16. You must be sad leaving that beautiful home behind, but you have the right attitude. Change is difficult but often turns out for the best. Wishing you well with it all!

  17. Your home that you are moving from is beautiful how forunate to live in a lovey stone house. Best wishes to you in your new home---and yes Sue,--- you do need the quilt books!

    Hugs, Carolyn

  18. I hope all is well in your new house, Sue :)
