Welcome in my new art-room!
After one week of hard work all 324 boxes, including beds, tables, chairs, etc, almost everything is unpacked and has a new destination in the house. Every item goes through our hands and that makes it so much work. Because the apartment is much smaller than the house we had before, we have to decide what can stay and what has to go. It would have been so much easier if we had known where we were going when we packed the house in Vietnam. But that has not been the case and all furniture has been in storage for almost 19 months.
Some people who passed by the street, took card boxes and left all the wrapping paper on the street, what a mess it was! Fortunately it did not rain!
Our apartment is on the 8th floor and two items, the sofa and one cabinet, had to be 'air-lifted' because they did not fit in the elevator.
This was my room at the beginning of this week, and now it looks like the picture above. I know, it is still a bit messy with loose cables from the computer and TV, and not everything in its final place, but I am so happy to have it all around me again!
My cabinet with fabric covered boxes made to measurement. Inside are beads and ribbons and tools for box making. On the two bottom shelves crates with fabrics. To the right of the cabinet are cardboard sheets, enough for the coming year. To the left are rolls of bookbinders linen.
All these colours make me happy every time I am in this room. It is time to get sewing, I have a few Siggies to make and send them overseas! Hilde
