After a month of waiting, our stuff is here. Can you believe how packed in they got it? Up at the very top of the boxes you can see my bigger pattern drawers and one of my fabric totes. Boy, was that a sight for sore eyes! I did have a bit of a scare though. The night before they rolled in I had a nightmare that they had lost one of my pattern drawers. So, as you can imagine, I was a bit, shall we say, concerned when I couldn't find the one containing ALL of my standard sized pattern envelopes of adult patterns. Yes, that is right, my ENTIRE STASH of adult (both men and women) BMV, Simplicity, Kwik Sew, Colette, Burda, vintage patterns - EVERYTHING was missing. We checked the manifest. It wasn't logged as being packed at all!!! I think I stopped breathing at that point. The movers recognized my distress and searched (although they all admitted that they hadn't seen it as they had off-loaded the truck). It was nowhere to be found. At that point I recognized the futility, signed the manifests (after documenting thoroughly the missing pattern file) and the movers headed out. Of course, after getting my kids from the friend who kept them for me, I headed straight to the sewing room. I couldn't imagine why they would have, but my last hope was that they had put the whole thing in a box. I'll allay the suspense now - yes, I found it. After frantically opening every box marked Sewing, there it was, in the last one. Of course, now my sewing room was unpacked, sort of.
Here is one corner of my little domain. I still have a ton to do to get it ready for sewing, but it's a start.
