Hello from Seattle!
Whew, what a crazy couple of weeks its been. It feels like I’ve been living in the chaos that is moving for ages. Thankfully, a bit of order is finally returning. The boxes are slowly disappearing, the furniture has settled into a reasonable arrangement, and the sewing area has been set up. Sewing has even been happening! In fact, I’m breaking in my new sewing space with a pretty piece from Liberty of London!
But, this apartment is somehow much smaller than our last, even though it’s supposedly a two-bedroom apartment with more square footage. As each box has been unpacked, anything that hasn’t been used recently has been repacked for giving away and moved to the porch. I get weird attachments to stuff, but I keep telling myself that less stuff will mean less clutter, and less clutter will mean less chaos. The hardest part has been the fact that I now have about a quarter of the closet space that I had before. So many clothes have had to end up in boxes on the porch, destined for new homes. Not to mention that I’m going to have to keep culling as I continue sewing. I guess it’s a good habit to get into – one thing in, one thing out. I hope my neighborhood thrifters will be as appreciative of my old clothes and household appliances as Macklemore is of his footie pajamas and broken keyboard.
Anyway, I’ve got a lot to catch up with here on the blog, and I’m hoping now that moving tasks are slowing down, my little spot on the internets will become a lively place again. I have meet ups to tell you about, reviews and giveaways in the works, and new garments on their way. Exciting times here in Seattle!
