Almost finished

I'm sure you all are getting tired of reading about my moving.  But I am almost finished packing. I have a little bit in each room left to pack.  Today, I worked on packing part of the kitchen and my Angel collection. 

Tomorrow I get to pick up my keys to the apartment.  I want to take the dishes and bowls I packed today, unpack them and put them in the cupboard and bring back the boxes.  I would rather be the one moving the dishes because if anything happened to them, I would prefer it be me and not any one else to blame.

I have called the electric company and they turned the electricity on today.  I also set the 20th for it to be turned off here at the house.  I also called the water department that I use and scheduled the water to be turned off on the 20th.  All I need to get set up at the apartment is water and cable.  As soon as I get the deposit for the water, I can have it turned on.  I also have to get my animals their shots before I can take them over there.

On the stitching front, I have been working on my Santa and Animals stocking during breaks from packing.  I have had to frog twice already because I had used the wrong color in two places.Other than that, I am enjoying working on it.  I plan on starting the Praying Hands next week.  Instead of starting a different project for each day for 15 days, I plan on starting a new one for 15 weeks.  That way I don't have to put it down after just a few stitches.  Since I have 3 already started, I am counting them as 3 weeks even though it hasn't been 3 weeks yet.

Well, I can't think of anything else to talk about so until next time, God Bless.


  1. I think one a week is a great idea. Even though I have 30 things sitting here it would drive me crazy to add 15 more in 15 days. In one week I could possibly have a finish.

  2. Sounds like you are making great progress! Hope the move goes smoothly for you!

  4. Sorry I hit the wrong button on the iPad....I like your idea about starting new stitching projects! Hope you enjoy your new place!

  5. I'm so happy for you that you're almost finished with the move.. I know it's going to be such a relief when it's over. You Santa and Animals and Praying Hands, what can I say but I am really looking forward to your update picturs. They are going to be just gorgeous.
