Long time, no blog.  Things got very hectic after the AMQF at the start of the month; on the last day of the festival I found out that I have to move house, so ever since then Mereth and I have been packing and shifting, toting and carrying, lugging boxes and hauling furniture. The end is in sight though, and we might have a lazy day today.

Life has been constant upheaval for many months; first there was Mereth's shift, which is now almost complete.  Now I'm shifting.  And our bother and sister-in-law moved over from Western Austalia, and have been decluttering their house, which seems to involve giving us what they don't want; when DB arrives on the doorstep with a trailer full of stuff we have to stop what we're doing and rush to help unpack.

And where are we going?  I always knew that I woud have to leave this place one day, when our friends came back, so I had the foresight to buy a place that could take Millhouse.  Two years ago I bought the Freemason's Lodge, which is a gigantic hall, just two blocks down from where I live now.

It's only two rooms, so Millhouse will be set up in the back, and I will live in the front room.

There is loads of space, so it won't be too bad, and it will only be until I can get planning approval for a house on the land next door.
I've lived in caravans before this, and student accommodation, and single rooms, so a 6m x 7m room won't be too cramped.  And I'll finally realise a longheld dream and get to actually sleep in my sewing room!  I bet I'll have to move the fabric off my bed first.

well as someone who does sleep in her sewing room, it's a very nice thing to do! I have to be organized, but i get a lot more sewing done this way than if i had a separate room for my sewing.

best wishes on the moving and packing.

Love your blog - one of the first I ever started reading - welcome back! Really like the sound of that hall - what a coup! I have always dreamt of living in a church - am an atheist by the way - but the SPACE!! :-)

What a great building! I'd love to have something like this.....I'd hold big HeartStrings get-togethers!

Sounds exciting! I've often thought of finding a place (away from the kitchen)to do my quilting...sigh!

Packing and moving are my least favourite things to do, so good for you that you have survived three moves! I am sure moving Millhouse wasnt fun either. Hope you get to do some sewing for you soon. I guess the good thing about living in your sewing room would be that you can eat, dream and breath patchwork! Happy quilting Sue SA

Good luck with it all.

Has it really been two years? Time is flying faster and faster. I have been feeling sorry for Mereth all the while and now shall feel sorry for you too. Although not too sorry because I can't imagine anything more heavenly than an enormous bedsitter. Maybe you should just build a new classroom next door and stay put. You could build a sleeping loft quite inexpensively, you have the height.

What are you doing for bathroom and shower?
