We made it to Virginia! It was more than a little crazy right before we left Omaha (impending storms, government shutdown, cats freaking out over the move, selling the house, pregnancy symptoms, lots & lots of rain) but we’re here now making our lives in our new home. (whew!)
Our stuff has been here for about a week & we’re 80% unpacked & living our “normal” life with routines & whatnot. It makes for a somewhat stressful first week in our new home, but we know after 3 moves together the faster we can get things together then the faster we can start focusing on our career & school without distractions.
Needless to say, the studio is usually one of the last things, mostly because I need to get the kitchen together so we can start cooking (an integral part to getting back to “normal” for us & nothing fancy here folks, just what can I toss in the slow cooker that will be warm & tasty in our bellies), and the main living area needs to be in order or we can’t find things like car keys in the morning!
Last night though J & I started assembling the longarm. This had to be done first because the new studio is much smaller than the Omaha one & I didn’t know how much actual space I’d have left to work with once the longarm was up & running. Hopefully we’ll finish the longarm tonight so I can get the rest of the studio together over the weekend- and then I can start quilting again!!
I’ll keep posting pictures of how I’m organizing things, remember, you can also follow OBQ on Facebook!
