Exciting news! I’m moving soon, the beau and I are moving in together and I’m just to thrilled. Trouble is: it’s a short notice move! We signed the lease last weekend and
I’m we are moving into the new house 15 days from today. Thank goodness I’m only packing up a one bedroom apartment but the idea of packing my stash is scary!
I’ve already got some fabric packed in my giant Rubbermaid bin to prevent my “craft start temptation disorder” from bubbling to the surface. After packing some of it away I needed my “fix” so I decided it would be wise to finish trimming the HSTs I have laying around for the HST of Doom quilt.
I was curious know how many HST I’ve done, I counted up 10 of them, weighted them, then weighted all of them and mathed-it-up. Turns out I’ve got approximately 361 HST’s all trimmed up! Only 39 more left for a 60×60″ quilt top!
I’ve got all of Essex linen and various squares of fabric prepped for the remaining HST but I did the smart “adult” thing and decided that since there is no deadline to finish this quilt I should I packed it all away together to be revisited upon unpacking in February. Being a grown up and making grown up decisions is the worst.
This one goes in the scrapbook box so nothing gets too smooshed and messed up, read also: I don’t have to press everything again after unpacking.
Oh but see that SWEET other scrap I slipped in there? It’s a textured faux leather swatch, I’d picked up a swatch to check it out with my last order from Fabric.com and it’s really neat, can’t wait to move and get it up on the design wall for inspiration time!
Now, I need your advice!
This is the first time I’m packing being a quilter with a stash. Any tips for packing up crafts for moving? I’m armed with some space bags & large Rubbermaid bins but I’m all ears for your tips!
