Moving in

The last couple of weeks have been really tough. Having to scale down from a 21 acre bush block to a half acre town block is no easy matter. I had no idea that we had accumulated so much junk! Yesterday we finally completed the moving out process and now we can start concentrating on the moving in process. Until now we have just been camping amongst piles of boxes but that is fast changing.

On the day we moved in we were greeted with this sight on the drive way.



It looked so cheerful that I felt it boded well for our new life in town.

As you can see I've not only changed my template but also the name of my blog. Its been very hard to give up my bush paradise but I now have a new paradise. I have my very own knitting studio!



This still very much a before picture. Once I'm settled in and I've organised the room I'll give you another look.

During this stressful time I have done lots and lots of lovely stress relieving stocking stitch. More of that in the next post.

Ah, it feels good to get back to normal!

What a nice start to your new home, I love the driveway, it would make me smile every time I got home.

And, a WHOLE knitting studio! I can't wait to see it when we get the After picture.

Welcome Home.

Love your knitting studio! We might be moving this year too and just the thought of it makes me want to lock myself up in my craft room!

Congrats on the move - I'm sure after all that work you just want to hang out in your knitting studio and do stocking stitch for hours on end!

I think you are going to be just fine here. I think that knitting studio will soon have a couple of storage spots added, perfect for stashing...not that I'm enabling in any way of course ;)

Wish you the best of luck in your new home! It looks really nice.

Take good care of yourself!

Well done Bruce and Amanda! You've done the hardest bit. Now it's just refinding all those treasures you packed safely away ..... somewhere.

Love the studio :-)

Love
Helen.

Thanks for all the lovely welcoming comments!
Kelebek if you are thinking of moving start packing now ;)
Valli no more chooks, the fox ate all my girls a while ago.

Glad to see you're back online! Lovely studio. Plenty of room to make beautiful things. Congratulations - although... I spent today clearing out a bit of my studio. Did you mention junk?
