I feel like I don’t get anything done these days. I’m either unpacking from a trip to the studio or packing for a trip to the studio. Today I did a little of both.

I did a walk-on to the ferry when I came back on Monday so the majority of my “stuff” came back with Pat today. Before he was even in the door from the noon ferry I had already started a pile of things to take across on Friday when I go over. I went out this afternoon and bought the stuff we had on our list, and I’ve got a couple of boxes full of things that we need to take over from the house. As well as all of that, I’ve decided to move my cross-stitching supplies to the studio. I hardly ever have blocks of time for cross stitching and with it at the studio I might manage a finish occasionally!

I’m going to take one of my sewing machines across although I don’t really plan to do much sewing over there. Before I can pack it I need to sort out which footers belong to which machine. Because they are all Janome’s I’ve had them stored together in a pouch but over the past few weeks at the bee I’ve realized that they aren’t all interchangeable. I’ll take the very basic ones and keep the fancier ones (like the zipper foot) here.

Pat decided the fridge really wasn’t keeping things cold enough so we ordered a new one today. It will ship here and then we’ll have to take it across ourselves. We have a working freezer at the studio so we ordered a fridge without a freezer. That should keep the weight down a bit. We’ll also have to load the old fridge from the studio and find a way to dispose of it. I’m not looking forward to that series of moves.

While I was out running errands this afternoon I stopped at the fabric shop and purchased my first Christmas gift. I’ve had my eye on it for awhile but I wanted to wait until my “Bonus Card” was full in order to get my $25 discount. Who it is for is a surprise!

We’re off to the movie tonight but I think I still have time to sort out my recycling for a depot run tomorrow.
