Tuesday I drove up to Brunswick and that was fine I was able to relax and I got up the next day and stitched some. I went to Target and found something decent to wear to dh's graduation. After the graduation we drove to Charleston to drop off dh's car at the apartment and then drove up a little ways and stayed the night in Orangeburg, SC. We got up early and drove to White, GA where our house is. We got right to work. Bagging up garbage and packing up dishes, etc. On Friday we got the U-Haul and loaded it up with the garbage and old furniture. I'm ashamed to say we filled a whole 14' truck with just junk. We were amazed at all the stuff we accumulated in 14 1/2 years. It felt so great to get rid of all the stuff we didn't need, all the junk we had been carrying around with us for so long. After a trip to the dump we started loading the truck with things to take to the apartment. We got up early the next day and drove back to Charleston. Again we got right to work unloading and unpacking. Much easier this time because there was no junk to deal with! Only the essentials! The next day I got dh setup with wireless internet (only took two tries with two different routers), did some laundry (our dryer is not working so we had to go to the laundromat) and then I left for Florida. Dh did not want me to go, but I had to get back to the kids. They were missing me and I was missing them! It took me 7 1/2 hours to get home. I fell into bed hugging my pillows.
I have to go up again this weekend. We have some things we need to put in storage down here in FL. And I want to get some more cleaning done for the closing, which is still supposed to be on the 14th. I'm not looking forward to it, but it has to be done.
Well, I knew it would be a miracle if I got any stitching done. I probably stitched one hour in five days. Here's my little progress pics....
LHN "Prairie Sampler."
I decided to change the red in Prairie Sampler to Sister Scarlett instead of Red Fox. Red Fox was a little too light and pink. I think Sister Scarlett looks better with the rest of the colors in the design.
BRD "Poinsettias and Pines."
I tried to work on this in the car. That didn't work too well. It's not easy to stitch on 40 ct. linen in a moving vehicle! :)
Well, I think that's all. I wonder if I could get away with not working one more day. I just want to lay in bed and be lazy! :) Write later!
