You can look but your 8 lbs will never open that gate again...even if your 12lb sister joins you. Another bungee holds the gate closed at top on the other side.

Well I have been crazy busy this morning .... so I could veg and crochet and hand piece this afternoon. Office list for today completed, a tiny bit of yard work - just wanted to get one thing done before the rain shows up. Chicken is in the oven and pork chops will follow. And now it is time for some feet up. Yes another hat. If you only knew how many hats. Might flip back to mitts for awhile. Lots of leftover hat yarn to use there. The giveaway/donation bin is going to be quite full. And that is a super positive to all of this. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

What a full day! Spent several hours out in the yard working on the gardens. Tomorrow I need to spend a few more hours. Then rain is the forecast for several days. Bruce & Ginger were out with me in the yard. Ginger practically flopped into the bed she is so tired from running and playing all day. Bruce grabbed my lap as soon as I sat down. He is my guy. I think some hand piecing and early to bed. Ginger has the right idea. Sweet dreams everyone! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

Do I smell pork ribs? Yep. For the first time ever I made pork ribs! And they are edible. And good! My spices here are extremely minimal. But my blend of dry mustard, some salt and pepper and a little bit of cajun dry rub turned out pretty darn good. No sewing yet today. Just feel like vegging. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

Spent some time in the yard. The gardens are starting to come to life. Looks like I will get to enjoy the lupines one more time. 🙂 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

And then your daughter has this delivered to you via Grubhub. Southsiders know I just received sunshine in a container. Who cares if I haven't had dinner yet. Grabbing a spoon! 😁 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #rainbowconeicecream #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

My afternoon. Today this scarf will go to the "done" bin. Beneath the fleece blanket are 2 doxies who are not moving. I may nap sitting up! 🤣😴😴😴 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #allfiberarts #crochet

It's been quite a full morning/early afternoon. And now a garlic bologna sandwich with dill garlic pickles. Hey...I'm alone...that can sometimes be a good thing....lol. Pickle anyone? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

All the center pinks/melon oranges strips are cut. They are pinned up with the fabrics they will be used with. Next step I will slice each of the 5" squares into three 1.5" strips. Then line them up with each pink/melon strip and sew the rail fence units. Final task. Trim them down to 4 5/8" in length. So a little loss of fabric ....but perfectly sized units. I'll work on them later tonight. Right now its "hummus and wheat thins" hour.. lol #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

My studio support team. Not so good at folding, unable to use a rotary cutter and can't reach the iron. I love them anyway. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

I divided up the 3 short 5" square packs. They are perfect size for the rail fence parts of the block. I can get 2 blocks worth from each pile so that means 40 - 10" blocks. I actually can get 3 out of 2 fabrics that had additional squares so that means 42 blocks or a 6x7 set. Or 60" x 70" before borders or sashing (if I decide to go that route). Those lights are the backgrounds and the pinks/oranges are the center of the rail fence units. Trying to decide on a center. May make up the rail fence units and ponder the center while doing so. Any ideas? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

0

This is my starting point. Which block?....or do I play with both? One is 10" finished and the other is 12"....but that can be worked around. Simple blocks that will produce quick gratification. I do want to play with this mix of Kaffe and Phillip Jacobs fabrics. Spring is blooming in my studio! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

Holy Smoly it is windy out there. They weren't kiddin with the wind gusts forecast. Took another "cleansing" rubbermaid of items that will not be traveling south to Evansville to the trash tote in the alley. Seems my timing on doing the "heavy" dumping the last two weeks was spot on. It has been announced that our garbage pick up will now ONLY be of the items that are/fit in the actual garbage tote. Any items outside of the tote will be left. The garbage workers will not leave the truck to handle any items. Makes sense. Absolute sense. Glad I got the 40 yr old cross country skis (they we have owned for at least 10yrs and have never used) out last week. Just sayin. (I love my packrat hubby) #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

To be perfectly honest my days have become quite boring. And if they are boring to me they most certainly are boring to you! LOL. Is it crazy that I am almost looking forward to the stormy night they are predicting. I love a good thunderstorm....when Paul is here to share it and get the generator going if needed. I think tomorrow I may start a new quilt. I'm not sure. My original plan was to work on a UFO but now I think I need something new. Who knows what I will feel like doing tomorrow. Now I am arguing with myself. Oh and The Crew are giving me the silent treatment. It was Bath/Nail Clipping day. And now you truly get how boring it is around here. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

Yesterday a friend posted this to our friend group. A gentle challenge that honestly is good for us. So today I wrote out the 19 exercise segments that my name composes and began to tackle them. A little here - a little there. I just finished up. So I proudly posted this to my friend group. And then my dear friend said....oh I didn't tackle ALL the exercises at first. I did half. Well I missed that memo....LOL I may not be able to move tomorrow. Hahahahaha #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre #exercisechallenge #someonemayneedtopressthekeurigbuttoninthemorn

There's a whole lot of depapering going on here. I know. Too much excitement. Depre - party of one- your vacuum is waiting! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #DeprePartyofOne #panelquiltpattern #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

Took some time today to go thru all the pictures what were in storage in garage. Over 30 yrs of marriage there are alot of "wall art". Came across this cross stitch I made back before Paul & I were even married. So it is about 35 yrs old. I got rid of the frame and will gentle soak wash it and I think it will become a pillow for the new house. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

The Panel quilt is done. Well the top is done. It will sit now waiting for quilting. And a pattern will be written. But it is going to be awhile. I am turning off the lights in the studio and heading upstairs for dinner and some hand sewing/crochet or puzzling. Tomorrow I will return to the sewin machine. :) #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #panelquiltpattern #atchezdepre

Hello Everyone! Ahhhh sleep. And so much better when Bruce decides to be a neck muff and Ginger curls into your front side for a hug. ...who's Paul again??.....lol. (That's humor people) But truly the 3 of us have a sleep arrangement now ...hahaha. Here is the scarf that I finished in the wee hours of the morn. Let's spend sometime together tomorrow...around 10ish CT and I will walk you thru the crochet stitch for the scarf and tell you where to find the hat pattern etc. I'll start another scarf tonight so I will have something to demo on during the live. Sound good? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #allfiberarts #crochet

Don't you just hate when you accidentally touch an app on your phone in a manner that deletes it from the screen. ...and then you can't figure out what the app was that is missing!?! I think I need a nap. 😴😴😴 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

This is Priscilla. She was a gift from a good friend (thanks Kim!) now almost 9 years ago when Molly (our first doxie) claimed our home as hers. Priscilla lives on the back steps and is filled with yummy treats for The Crew. This morning it was time for Priscilla to have a bath. Bruce saw me pick her up and spray her down in the sink. He tilted his head and raised his eyebrows and then the look of "oh sh!t" swept over his face and he hightailed it out of the kitchen. Bathtime for The Crew is 8am. I know where Bruce is. You can run but you cannot hide. LOL. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

Ring Toss Block #8 is done. And a hat (scarf in the works) that will be donated next fall. Looks like I am going to be in Illinois for quite awhile. Not looking for sympathy. There are people in much more precarious and upsetting situations than my own. Just gonna need a few days to wrap my head around the entire scenerio and then move forward. I hope things are good in your abode. Show me what you got done today! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

My days here have become very quiet these last two weeks. But tonight I just want to shout - YAY! Paul has moved into the temporary apartment that CSX is providing for us and it just filled me with so much happiness right now to hear him. Two weeks in a hotel room alone gets old. Takeout dinner at a desk gets old. He's enjoying a real armchair to sit in and veg. I miss him. But I am so happy he is safe and sound at Chez Depre - The Annex. #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Lunch and Dinner for the next 3 days is served! Moving has been rescheduled to "sometime during April 6-10th". When we get closer the dates will firm up. It is a fluid situation and totally understand. I took a 4 hr nap with two very snuggly doxies and that is what I needed. I am going to stay home the rest of today and tomorrow and venture out on Friday early morn to get some groceries. Now it is time for some Beef General Tso's and a potsticker. What's for supper at your house? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

5

So to partially amuse myself, and now what I think I will make my game plan for later today, I am putting together a $50 order from my fav local Chinese place. My thoughts...that will hold me for a few days until the powers that be make a decision. On another note the garbage man just took ALL the garbage that was left (we posted about free items on a local social media page and there was a bit of a feeding frenzy this weekend out there) in the alley. That is truly a load off my plate. Whew. Ok....back to my egg foo young selection...lol #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

I have this artwork hanging in my office. And today I am claiming the Wonder Woman moniker. The things that I have gotten done today...both physical and mental. My head is spinning at the fact that we are where we are just 7 days into this process. We now have chosen our agent for this house and that process will begin shortly after our departure next week. Tomorrow I have the virtual walk thru with the movers at .....wait for it.....7am. I know I know. I said I will take the 9am appointment and by the time I got the confirmation text and saw the 7am time...the 9am time slot was filled. sigh. I am not going to declare that I will sew the rest of the day away after the appointment tomorrow...because that seems to not happen lately....lol. I will try to sew and see what happens. I will declare that there will be an ordered in dinner... because the meal choices are getting quite slim. Tomorrow is the last big hurdle I need to clear before the move. Tomorrow at 8:30am I am removing my metal bracelets and becoming "Just Mickey". Here's to tomorrow! Yippee! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

I fail at sitting still. I try I really do...but I went upstairs for just one thing 2.5 hours ago...and well the bathroom items that need to follow us to the temp housing are packed and all other small items are bagged for the movers. ....and the office is half done also. I'm gonna grab a nap now with Bruce. Ginger left us to nap an hour ago...lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

So while the news that the movers will be here next week may make you think I am frantic with activity. Well no. After the call I was a bit. But then I realized there is really not much for me to do as the movers will be packing everything other then the items we wish to keep in our control. And 80% of that has already been packed and moved to Evansville. The biggest thing I have left to pack is my clothing. And that is just one medium suitcase...not my entire wardrobe. And my project suitcase...but that has been worked on already and is more then half done. So yeah....I am taking today and tomorrow and resting a bit. Manning the phone...scheduling some things but sitting and sewing. Ring Toss Block #7 will be started. I think the first row of the quilt will be done before I even leave. And I cast on a cowl as crochet is easy to do when I am sitting on the phone on hold. Lots of hold time. Listening to some books, podcasts and I have a few history documentaries in my streaming queue. Life is good. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Well guess who is going to be very busy again this week! The house will be packed and moved to storage next week. The crew and I will be Evansville bound shortly after that. Whoa! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Paul is almost home. Yeah...during this visit we started calling Evansville home and this is just "here". The shift was made. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome #wearehoosiers

This is what is happening just one foot from me as I stitch. We all know who is missed. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

Paul is back on the road to Evansville. During this weekend we found this coffee mug. I gave the mug to Paul 30 yrs ago this May. This is how I told him we were about to be a family. 🙂 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Bruce is hoping to be "packed" for this trip. Soon buddy soon. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

After a very long, very full, VERY PRODUCTIVE day I am determined to put some more stitches into this Ring Toss Block. We have chosen our TEMPORARY housing! Another adventure- we are going to live in an apartment for 3 months (or until we close on our new home). Paul and I have never lived in an apartment. We bought our first home together at age 21 - 5 months before we were married. So this will be something new....freedom of yard work with a workout gym downstairs, a club room with a pool table and a swimming pool outside! Next appointment is Saturday - second agent will come thru to assess the value of our abode for Paul's employer. Then next week the movers assess the time and truck space they will need. And then I am free to make a few trips back and forth to visit Paul, fill the fridge and cupboards, and look at some new abodes. But tonight I want to sew....and tomorrow also. This girl needs a fiber fix. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Bruce wants everyone to know he is not so sure about these "new people" invading his domain today. But Mom says there is a bigger backyard on the horizon so I will deal with it. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

Just scrubbed my kitchen to within an inch of it's life. First agent is walking thru the doors for new relocation assessment tomorrow at 11am. The rest of the house is a bit up in arms with boxes everywhere. But I feel if the kitchen is clean that always works in your favor. #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

This may be how I look right after the morning of 8+ phone calls (I lost count) I have had. All calls regarding moving and every thing associated with it. Even down to managing utilities. The movers assessment meeting is scheduled for Friday. ...the honey stix doughnuts were gone by 10am and call #5. I figure everyone is on lunch break and the phone will begin again in an hour. The actual realtors are next on deck. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Look at my healthy dinner! My favorite Sunflower Seed Salad mix from Aldi and some chicken. Balancing out the patty melt that may of come home with me after running errands....and just ignore the honey stix donuts in the back. 🙂 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #quilterswhocook

I have been kinda quiet today. Sleep again was just a few hours last night and now the 3rd night in a row, and it is most definately catching up to me. Last night, within 1 hr, all three of the houses we had on our short list ....well they are all now "off market". Apparently we have good taste in homes. So today I have decided to wipe the slant clean on my house hunting app and begin the search again. ...and we have a problem...all the beautiful old homes are back in front of my eyes...and suddenly I am rethinking the buy new direction we have been on. Oh boy....but there's this one house...and the fireplace....sigh. I'm going to take a few hours and do some house hunting and honestly I am going to bed early...so this may be my last post today. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Well the Eagle has finally left the nest. ...and this is why I say...we were due on the same day...I was born 6 days early and Paul was born 3 weeks late. And it has been that way ever since. LOL #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Mr Motion and I tackled a few more tasks. And then at noon I declared I am done. ...he is still doing things. I am ignoring him....lol. Corned beef and cabbage is cooking. Paul loves my making of this and so we decided to enjoy this feast 10 days early. My goal for the rest of today is the finish of this block and possibly block #5. And I am going to start a book. It is time to do that again. Mr Motion is exhausting to even just watch...I must advert my eyes....LOL. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Getting very real here. Nothing in the door bins of the frig. We are going to have a professional cleaning crew come in after the moving crew....but you all know I straighten up for the hotel maid also....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

4

Woke up to a totally cleared out dining room (our personal packing staging area) and Paul's jeep packed with some room to spare. Yeah he is a little excited. We are alot excited. Nothing is going to bring us down. We are going to ride this magic carpet of happiness for awhile. So please if you have something negative to say think again before posting it or sending it to me privately. We are well aware that things get lost/broken during moves, that every town/city has issues. But we also know that there are so many new adventures before us and we are choosing to just see the good and leap over the hurdles. Nothing is perfect. But this mug. This mug is perfect. It arrived when I was napping. When I went searching for the Stay at Home Dog Mom mug I stumbled across this one. Yeah I had to have it also. I think it needs a quick wash and to be filled with a delightful early evening mug of liquid gold. I suspect Mr Motion is going to find a task to tackle tonight....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

And we are home. And this chick is staying put for the next week or so. I am pretty worn out and just need some low key days. While out and about groceries were obtained and a quick stop at Hobby Lobby added these to my stash. That multicolored skein is the same yarn as the scarf I made last weekend. Going to make a hat and mitts to match...and may even make the scarf longer with the remaining yarn. The other skeins are my mismatched coffee set. Hats & Mitts will happen. I like things mismatched at times. Tomorrow I will work some more on Ring Toss blocks kits. But today I just need to veg. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #allfiberarts #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

Another day of doing so much I wouldn't even know where to begin to tell you. But this turned up during lunch (no not Paul...lol) I said "Yes we are purging and moving stuff out. But some things must come into the house. You know...for balance." #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #deprechat

Well it has been 10 intense hours of what felt like endless forms to complete online/accounts made/choices inputted/research done. But we got it all done and heard from our relocation team! That whirlwind begins tomorrow. And we filled our garbage bins and recycle bins to the max with more unloading. Paul is now out for the night with his bike club who put together a farewell dinner for him. Funny thing is we will now be living about an hr away from their annual bike trip location so he will attend that every year. I just ordered some dinner. The pickins' are extremely slim here and we will need to get to the grocers for a bit tomorrow. My guess...I'll be asleep by 8pm....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

I am doing some handpiecing and I just looked over to see this happening on the couch. Comfy Bruce? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

I am done in the office for the day. I spin around and this is the chaos of the other half of the room. Paul's desk. It used to be you couldn't see it because of all the papers stacked on it and his memorabilia (50% junk - yeah I said it)....now it is just a resting spot for boxes he needs to move into the dining room tonight. I am going to practice feet up for a bit before Hurrican Paul blows in.....truly there will not much left for me to do (but stitch!) once he departs. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Late January I saw this mug at Kohls. I loved it but thought - let it be Mic- you have plenty of coffee mugs. But it bugged me for days. And then Paul came home and asked if I was still willing to move to Evansville (for those new to the page - this move was suppose to happen in January) and truly become a stay-at-home dog mom. I had to get the mug. But when I returned to Kohl's it was gone. Gone from every Kohls within 20 miles. Clearanced out I was told. Well guess who tracked it down on ebay. Yay me! I can hardly wait for tomorrow's morning coffee. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #stayathomedogmom

Ginger loves to sit meerkat style. She came to us with this trick. We did not teach it to her. Yes we know it is not good for her back. But if you met Ginger in person you would know she is a fiery redhead who is going to do what she wants to do most of the time. And she is the strongest dog we have ever met. Nope wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley when she is crabby...lol. Bruce just looked at her and said "show-off" and ran to get a toy. I sit and play with them every evening. They know when I head to the middle of the floor it is time to rough house for 30-45mins. Remember they are still only age 3 and 2. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

There was a nap this afternoon...and then Mr Motion came home. That should explain the last 6 hrs at Chez Depre. I am finally sitting down, I plan to finish up block #1 (did I mention that I did get block #3-5 kitted up before my nap - YAY!) of the Scrappy Ring Toss Quilt....and then I am going to bed. I am exhausted...Mr Motion not so much....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

So I have to say this. Bruce really is my dog and Ginger is Paul's. Of course we LOVE them both equally...but doxies choose their human and they have done that. Paul is 2 floors above me right now napping...with Ginger. And Bruce chooses to nap just 3 feet away from me in the studio as I work on block kits. I feel the love. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #DeuxDoxieSnap #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

The scarf yarn is Roll With It by Red Heart. It is so soft and squishy. I knew this multicolr yarn needed a repeative dense stitch to let the coloring sing. I own a crochet stitch dictionary and this stitch is called Fantastic. I will post a pic of the book when I get home. And I will be home tomorrow. We are cutting our visit short by one day so we can get home before the snowstorm hits. And to do so means we will be rolling out of Evansville and heading to Michigan to get the crew by 5am. So sweet dreams everyone...this chick is heading to bed. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #ilove2crochet #allfiberarts

Done for the day. We drove and drove and drove again. But we have such a lay of the land we actually drove back to the hotel without GPS aid. One stop was at a furniture consignment shop. I didn't buy these 3 chairs and card table. The chairs are very rickety and really need some work to stabilize them. I should of bought them anyway. I fear they will haunt me. Sigh. I need a nap. Zzzzzz. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #vintage40sgirl

Daybreak with Paul. 80 miles to go. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Last night we made (yet another!) whole chicken in the instapot. I have emptied all the food staples in our cupboard on to the kitchen counter so we can work our way thru as much of the items as we can. This includes all my "baking items" as the movers will not move food and we have decided that ONLY our vast collection of spices are traveling with us. Chicken salad was decided for this entire chicken. That reduced the onions and mayo stash also. I am picking up some celery this morning to add in. Now the question is do I add the white raisins or not? Usually we don't....but we do have to use them up. What do you think? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #quilterswhocook

Just packed the cabinet full of art quilts (30+!). This is one of my favs. "I Can See Clearly Now" Yes this will hang at the new Chez Depre. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

Well the day just got away from me. But I got so much done in the office and errands that tomorrow will be less hectic. But soon Paul will walk in the door and for the next week that means it is all about getting him ready to exit state left (or right) depending on how you look at the map...lol We are hoping to take a few days of "us" early next week before he departs so the afterburners are on to get the list done. Which means I won't be playing (and sharing) posts today about the Ring Toss block (March release for Mic's Attic Picks series) but I will tomorrow. Because tomorrow I am taking a day of sewing for my mental health. :) Thank you to all who have already ordered your templates/EPP products. My smile was wide while running around this morning when I heard my phone chirp with every order. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #MicsAtticPicks #RingTossQuiltBlock #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

We are exhausted. So much has been done today. Honestly I am ready for Paul to go to work tomorrow so I can move at a bit of a slower pace.

Apparently I was very tired yesterday. I missed a whole cabinet of art quilts. Looks like I am packing more quilts later today. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Now I am walking thru the house looking for personal pictures and items we want to keep in our possession. Grabbed Opa's tin cup and this embroidery that my Gram made (Busha) when we bought our first house now almost 34 yrs ago. Yes Paul and I were homeowners before we were even married. Remember we were flipping homes before it was a "thing". Can't wait to hang this in our next abode. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

Fifty + bed size quilts and about 2 dozen art quilts ready for moving to temporary housing. Oh and a bag of quilt tops. Today I am going to help Paul with packing his clothes and items he needs to go with him. And maybe sneak in some studio time and try to finish Border #4 for the panel quilt. Hope to have that top done and in the top bag by this weekend. What's happening at your abode today? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome

My studio is a bit emptier. Paul still has to push all the air out of the bags and then tape them shut. Next up to pack all the quilt tops. Then the antique quilts/tops. And finally 2 sewing machines. And that is all I am packing from the studio. The relocation team will handle all the fabric and everything else down here. Whew. You all know what a blessing that is. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #onthemove2Evansville
