The state of things ...

I don't think I've quilted since my last post. We moved house in late August and I also went to Shanghai. Then we got a new au pair, our first, from Iowa, she's lovely! Having Laura is quite a relief to me but having moved means that I spend my spare time struggling with boxes. The den is in the process of getting into shape. My office desk area looks horrendous and needs to get sorted really quickly, otherwise I'll be receiving many angry letters asking for money long over-due. Then there are all those boxes filled to the hilt with fabric, yarn, batting, paints, canvasses, photos, scrapbooking supplies, inspirational items, mementoes, diaries, more photos ...

Deadline is early next week when my best friend comes to stay for one night on a business trip - the den doubles up as a guest room.

I did empty 18 boxes today, that's good, isn't it?! Now I need to go to IKEA to get some more shelving. ...

You are lucky to have an Iowa girl. That's where I grew up and I am, of course, prejudiced, but they have good heads on their shoulders. When I grew up we weren't so influenced by television, but it is still a good quality of life there. Hope you get settled soon.
