I have been busy lately and away from a bit of my sewing. We have made the decision to sell the house we have been in for nearly 24 years and move to a smaller apartment. My son and his frat brother/brewing partner will get an apartment and we will all be quite happy in the end. In the interim, it feels like a bit of work.
I am feeling like this is where the biggest problem in the house is for me:
Yes, this is the current state of my study.
There are 4, no 5, quilts to be quilted:
1. Fancy Forrest version 2
2. Free Fall QAL
3. Typewriter quilt
4. Grandmother’s flower garden (antique rescue)
5. String quilt from Spring Fling Remnants in 2016
I am panicking a bit, but know things will work out. I am looking forward to getting things in better shape and keeping only one quilting and one piecing project going. It will be awhile until I get there, but I do hope to have projects quilted before the move. I think this also means thinking about what to keep, sell or give away of my finished projects. God help me!

I think we all find ourselves in this boat at some point. I think I pretty much live on this boat, but one step at a time, even small steps you will get there. Nothing like a move to force one to clean.
Thanks, Tish! I have no doubt that is what will happen. Saturday is my first chance at some small steps. I have been reducing stash but the "bag lady" problem continues. I think not working at the quilt store will curb some of this!
Take a deep breath and take one step at a time. Just keep moving forward. Hope the moving process goes well for you. We've thought about moving now that we are empty-nesters, but the thought does seem overwhelming. –Andrea
Thanks, Andrea. I will breathe and go step by step. Starting with quilting a little this Saturday and then cleaning one shelf. My goal for the next available time!
