You'll be very pleased to hear that my sewing room is starting to look more user friendly now.
Welcome to my sewing room. Of course there are still boxes to unpack, but I'm feeling like ignoring them for a while :) I found the one that had all my cottons packed in it and the one that had all my sewing notions, which is most important.
I also have the t.v. and a large sofa in here so it's very comfy. Maybe too comfy? Never mind. I think there are going to be way too many distractions. Out the large picture window is a beautiful wee garden nook.
And if I look out the double doors, I'm confronted with this view...
I want to say thank you to all those who sent me emails and left comments wishing us well with our shift. It was lovely to read them and I was touched at the lovely comments. I am thankful to have such lovely blogging friends. We are now settled in our wee cottage. Although it's been exciting all the way, it's been a hard shift, physically. I think I broke every fingernail at least once, every bone in my body ached, why on earth do I have so many boxes of books and magazines? Slowly the boxes are being unpacked and homes found for most things. Although I had a 'pre-throwout' I may also have to have a 'post-throwout'. :)

Every time I sit down I see something that needs to find a home and since I'm very easily side-tracked, I'm up and down and doing a multitude of tasks at the same time! Since we've been here we haven't eaten one meal inside yet, it's so nice to sit out on the deck and listen to the cicadas, their summer songs are deafening!

Slowly my sewing things are being unpacked too, can't wait to sort through everything. But for now I'm going to share a few photos with you that I've taken around the property.
Things have been a little hectic round here as we prepare to shift.
Honestly, I'm totally over this packing business. We have so much clutter, -very important can't live without clutter that I am sure that we will never find space for it all in our new cottage. (Mr M&M would roll his eyes at this point and claim that it is I who have the clutter!)
I have been ruthless (as much as a hoarder can be) and have thrown out boxes of "junk" I have even packed my car to overflowing and taken lots of goodies to the local Hospice Store. I know it feels like I'm having a personal purge, if one can have a personal purge? lol
This is all that's left of my sewing room. It took me 3 full days to get to this stage! The most traumatic event was finding a new home for the sheep. There were a couple of very naughty, trouble-making sheep, who went for a wee ride to visit the butcher. But my gorgeous sweet little twins and their friends were not to be eaten. We wanted to find a good home for them where they would be able to graze away the rest of their days.
Eventually we were relieved to find lovely lady who owned a large orchard and wanted some sheep to keep in it so that she never had to mow it. We bundled them into the trailer and took them on a road trip to discover their new home.
Here they are finding their way around, checking out their new paddock and the lovely lush green grass. They look as though they hardly even remember me. Which I must admit, didn't help matters. I bawled my eyes out all the way there, while they were unloaded and all the way home. Made an absolute total fool of myself.
I'm fine today. There are too many empty boxes waiting!
