One of the hardest things about preparing for this move has been culling and paring down sewing supplies. Fabric is the stitcher’s paint palette, but we cannot blend new colors on our brush. We must buy new fabric instead! My sewing machine is coming with me to England, and since I cannot take everything, I am trying to find ways to create practical things.



I found some practice blocks from a quilting bee and some precut pieces from a friend. Perfect for a few zipper pouches! If all my sewing basket can fit in them, I will be pleasantly surprised – miracles happen!
