Moving Day...

...has finally arrived. Thank you to all of you who continue to visit my blog despite the fact I've been posting about once a month. I promise as soon as I get settle in my new home I will start blogging again about the sewing in my life.

It's amazing how much fabric I have accumulated in just a few short months.  I came across several patterns and kits I picked up that I had forgotten about.  I found bags of fat quarters I had bought on visits to local and distant quilt shops that I had forgotten about.  And don't even get me started on the BOM packets that I found scattered around....

I ended up filling a HUGE container (the big plastic ones with the wheels on one end) and another Tuff Stuff container with fabrics.  And, that's not including the sewing machine, sewing notions, rulers, organizers, books, etc.  Wow.  It will be fun finally having a room where I can spread out and get my sewing area properly set up.  But, still, wow.

Thanks for following me on the journey.  In same ways, I feel as though I am just beginning.  So tell me, what's your secret to organizing your sewing room?

Let's Go to Tape Shall We?

As most of you know, I love taking photos.  I have since I got my first 326 camera when I was about 5.  Recently I made the change to Mac and got a MacBook Pro which came with iMovie.  So, funny story, we were waiting for wind on my weekly summer sailboat racing gig, and one of the larger boats was cruising around playing a song that had something to do with "being on a boat."  

It was a rap song, and I'd never heard it before, but it became a bit of an obsession to find the music.  When I did, I was inspired to play with my iMovie program and see what I could come up with... here's the result, but be forewarned, strong language is implied....
