    My DH and I recently bought a new house and we're moving tomorrow. My quilting stuff has been packed up for about 2 weeks at this point and I'm seriously going through withdrawal. It's driving me a little crazy.

    I've seen all the wonderful things that have come through the board in the past few weeks (ie, tube quilting) and I want to try them, but I purposely put the rotary cutter at the bottom of a miscellaneous box of fabric so I would need to go looking for it (and thus unpack) once we were at the new house.

    This sucks.

    However, I have been doing some online fabric shopping. I figure if I dont have to move it, it's ok to buy it. So, everything being shipped to the new house.

    Yes, I'm a stinker.

    K.

    I'll have to remember your incentive to unpack, if we move again!!

    Of course, by then, the majority of what we move will be boxes of fabric :oops: :lol: :lol: (Too many years in one place!)

    I totally understand how you feel...I will be in withdrawal myself by Saturday until December 7th. But I'm going on a cruise, so I guess I can't complain! LOL I will surely miss my projects though! Glad you could shop and send to your new place. It will be exciting when you get there and have fun packages to open!

    Have you thought about taking a couple squares to applique when you start getting those quilting pangs? I have been on several cruises, and sitting on the veranda (or deck) looking out to the deep blue Carribbean, and idly appliqueing is one form of heaven. Have a great time!

    We did move and I didn't hide my rotary cutter. :evil:

    So, as a result, I have LOTS of boxes to unpack because I would rather quilt. :lol: it's been over a year since we've moved, too. :(

    Yes, you had a good idea...... :D

    I completely understand! My house got listed for sale last weekend and my fabric closet (literally, floor to ceiling w/ fabric, whole closet), is in boxes :( :(. I kept a few small projects, but it's not the same. It takes 10 min to set up all my stuff, and 20 to put it away.

    Hang in there! New house soon

    Genius!!

    Hope you move into your new house soon!

    I moved four years ago and I still have one spare room in the basement full of boxes that have never been unpacked!!! I should have my daughter hide my rotary cutter in there and maybe I would clean the place out to find it!! Then again I would probably just go and buy a new one, it would be easier!!!! LOL!!

    It is amazing how we miss quilting when we can't do any. All my stuff is in storage until February 9th!! I have had to relent and buy yet another cutting board and mat so that I can make something. I usually quilt and make stuff with my machine, now I am making a wall hanging for my neice by hand. It is very different but is keeping me busy.

    I sure know what you mean about quilt withdrawal. I started school in August, (at 50+ no less) and the only time I have gone to my sewing room was to hem scrubs for others at school. In fact, I was telling my husband how much my room missed me, and he said he had to go in there for something and it smelled like an old ladies house. How sad!
    I sure hope to get to do some quilting during Christmas break.

    Will you have a nice new big room to quilt in at the new house? That would be incentive enough for me...........

    Ugh. Movers come today. Internet is provided via iPhone or I would never survive the wait.

    I do get a room to myself in the new house so I'm excited about that. It's the smallest bedroom but I figure something is better than nothing, right? My sewing stuff will have to learn to co-habitats with my library and my computer but I'm sure all my toys will get along fine.
