A New Home, A New Country

I have arrived safely in the UK, hurrah! I had to take a little detour which involved me staying with my mom for two weeks with the kitties, but I finally arrived last week and as of today we have internet again. I could only take a few very essential possession with me and unfortunately my sewing machine and fabric stash where not among them. I did take most of my notions and all of my patterns with me, thank goodness. But I am afraid I won't be sewing again till January, when we will finally have money again so that I can (hopefully) buy a sewing machine at one of the (many!) charity shops here and some fabrics at Fabric Land, a descent sized shop that my boyfriend had already spotted for me before I arrived. I really like my new home. Some things take a bit of adjusting but it is cute and our bedroom has a bay window, which I've always wanted! The cats handled the 10 hour drive exceptionally well and accepted their new home without complaint.
I was able to finish my two blouses from Butterick 4987 before I left, but I only took view II with me, the other one went into a box with other things that my mom will be sending me soon. But in the mean time you can expect a post with the finished result of view II!
