Time out is good for the soul...

Boxes waiting to be packed. Patiently waiting...


In between packing I've been enjoying some time out to rest from the heat and do a little stitching. After all, it's good for the soul...


My portable project plan during our house move is to complete more of Michelle's "Sentimental Journey" blocks...


They'll be gorgeous as a set of hanging pockets trimmed in Tilda...


I'm praying I can hang things in the new rental home. 
How nice would that be? It's been two years since I've been able to do this.

But for now the sun is going down, so back to the boxes...

  1. Oh these will be lovely!!! ... We're heading on holiday in less than a week and just looking at my to-do-list of things that need to be done and made before I leave is making my head spin - doesn't help that I was completely out of it last week, in bed sick and unable to hold a needle straight, let alone attempt to use the machine!!! Good to see you're taking time out when you need it to refocus ... maybe I need to follow your lead and just take a break every so often!! :)

  6. Those will be lovely. I'm glad you have breaks for stitching and rest in the midst of all the packing. Packing - no fun every time I've done it!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
