Still waiting to move so hand stitching ..

Sorry for not being around but my brain and concentration has seriously suffered in this whole selling and moving house process!
And no .......... I've still not moved and am still at home waiting for my buyer to get her act together - and mildly concerned that she's going to back out!

I've been sorting and clearing out my stuff for weeks now.
I've donated, offloaded and thinned down my belongings and have still got 30 or so boxes of just stash to move with lol

All this activity has meant the blog and my stitching has fallen by the way side and I have reaffirmed, that stitching is my therapy.
So at the latest set back, I had to DO something and of course had packed away my hexis and other works in progress - duhh

But I found a box of fabric scraps and set to hand stitching for sanity ~

The idea is that they will become cushion pad covers to lay over my dining chair seats, which both cats will lay on and cover in their hair.
These pics are the first one and I'm half way through the second 

  but only mildly de stressed!

 So this is short and sweet and I will be back later, I promise.
I hope life's treating you all well and that your warm and contented, where ever you are : )


  1. I feel for you about moving and waiting. Wish you luck and for things to happen.

  2. Lucky cats to have special pillows all for themselves! Keeping fingers crossed that the deal goes through - hopefully soon.

  3. you need to just keep picturing being in your new place and all settled...i know it's not easy to move, especially when there is an accumulation of stuff. great use of those scraps. so bright and cheery. i've missed your posts.

  4. well - I don't envy you having to pack up your cloth - but getting rid of some must have felt good? I have two big bags to give away right now... and the quilting as therapy is extra nice because there's a visible product when you're through... this one speaks to domestic warmth and order - perhaps part of why it was therapeutic at this time?

  5. I agree with Deanna, keep visualizing the best result for your move. This is a difficult time for
    you but think of how this culling of stuff will make room for more ideas. Fingers crossed for
