Round One and then some....

Just a quick note to let you know that the packing is just about done. This is the first picture (late at night) with the first round of fabric. Those are almost all 58 quart tubs, and the way I figure it, I have about 1,856 quarts of fabric there.  

The POD is now about 3/4 full and I think I have just another day's worth of sorting and packing. Then I'll do it all in reverse. The MOOVERS come on Wednesday for the big furniture pieces, the POD is delivered on Thursday, and the MOOVERS boys will come back and unload the POD on an hourly basis on Friday. Sonny Boy came over today and worked for about 7 hours loading the POD with more junk stuff, and then loaded three cars with kitchen stuff, my china and quilts. Then, at the new house after he unloaded all that, he and Hubby put together temporary shelving units in the unfinished daylight basement so I have some place to put all my quilts. I plan on using the length of shelving with the quilts as a "wall" to for new temporary stewdio. We'll take bids on the finishing in the fall, so it will be a while before temporary turns into something different!

Hubby will leave for his annual checkup around noon on Friday and I plan on sleeping a lot getting things unpacked while he is gone.

The computers are both going to be unplugged Tuesday, but my new IPad will keep me in touch if I can find the time. Keep stitching for me!

Make sure you take some time to rest and recharge. I've moved 24 times now, and each one is exponentially harder!

Love this picture! I can't imagine you do this move in all this heat, but it beats doing it in the winter cold/snow/rain. There is just NO good time to move!!

You are doing a great job,and I can't wait to see the new digs!

Holy crap, that's a lot of fabric! My sister used to say, "She who dies with the most fabric, wins!" When I set up my sewing room again this spring, I couldn't believe how much fabric I had in my stash--made me feel very content knowing I was well supplied for quilting. :p) Hope the move goes well for you.

Wow, and I thought I had a lot! Good luck on your move, I've done a lot in my lifetime and hope to never do it again!

Wow...that is a lot of fabric. The picture is great and I can only imagine how hard you are having to work to get it all together. A nap is definitely in order.

I'm new to your blog - but I also live in Belton, MO. Are you moving out of Belton? We will be looking for a new house in about a year, and I'm not looking forward to moving all of my tubs of fabric. With this heat, I think we'll wait until winter to move!
