All the paperwork got finally sorted for the four house chain whilst we were on holiday and less than one week after we came back I got the keys for my own little house. I had removal guys move the furniture and things I had managed to box up, and then have brought the other bits over by car (I've only moved round the corner and slightly down the hill as I like the area). I've spent what seems a lot of time back at the old place cleaning and sorting the garden out, and hopefully it will have been enough to ensure the return of the deposit when I have the exit inspection tomorrow as I had less than two weeks overlap in the end.
The basics are unpacked at the new place but its going to need some work on the bath/shower/boiler so waiting to see if I have to dismantle the shelving in my tiny new sewing room so part of the floor can come up for pipework or not. As such I don't really want to actually unpack any of the fabric until I know which way this is going.
In 4 weeks time I am sharing a stall at the local Christmas Market which raises funds for the village church. My fellow stall holder knits so we thought my sewn things would complement her knitted items well. It will also give us both a chance to wander round the other stalls - I shall make a beeline for the homemade jam and cakes - and also take comfort breaks when required.
I'm not sure if I will have much time, space or unpacked resources to sew anything more for our stall, but happily I have some items I already made which I packed in with the books, so have put them into an Ikea zippy bag as I went through unpacking the boxes of books and can just produce them when required.
These include various cushions - floral hearts, union jacks and some other larger floral ones, one string of bunting, some bookmarks maybe an apron or two. The main area I can see being useful would be fabric bags. I have sold out of the stock twice now, so they are definitely worth making if only I can recall which 'Sewing' box has the webbing for handles in it.
