Bon Voyage

Well, the bags are packed and the machines are crated. The big truck comes this morning to take all of our worldly possessions to the Great Salt Lake Valley. We'll be heading out today as well, so it'll get pretty quiet here for a while.
My poor, empty sewing room
We'll be driving to Salt Lake, so I won't be sewing at all this week, but I am bringing Janome and a couple of projects that are cut and ready to sew. Hopefully the rest of my sewing gear (oh, and all the furniture and other unimportant crap) will come quickly and I can set up my new sewing room! I can't wait to show it to you!
Dishcloth in progress
I don't drive much (when I can avoid it), so I suspect I'll at least get some knitting done in the car. It actually gets cold in Salt Lake, so I may actually have the motivation to finish the sweater I have been working on for Myra. Let's hope it fits her when I finish...

  11. Oh moves are always so exciting (and exhausting). New town, new home. Not sure if you are originally from SLC or new, but it is so exciting to show your kids a new place to grow up and have exciting adventures. I've only driven through, but my husband has been there a few times on business last year and he says it's pretty stinkin' beautiful. He keeps talking about two things... the mountains and the buildings downtown. I assume he means some of the temples.

  12. I actually live just north of Salt Lake City! Good luck with the move. We love it here.

    I'm very impressed--knitting in the car is way out of my talent range.
