The Empty Closet is MOVING!

To prepare for the move, we are having a big yard sale. Packing and arranging details has taken over our lives at the moment, I hope to get back to sewing this summer!

Here is proof, the closet is EMPTY.  Yes, it's a technicality, but it's fun to see the glorious emptiness - and to dream about the next closet which will be bursting with fabric, patterns and dreams of more quilts.

Happy Sewing

P.S. If you are local - come to our yard sale!
