Black Cat Crossing - Keep Hopping

I was supposed to be part of the black cat crossing blog hop - see the button on my side bar. I had my fabric and pattern picked out and ready to go.

Here's my cute fabric from the Black Cat Crossing line. I was going to do some houses from Camille Roskelley's Dwell pattern and an appliqued cat. I even bought some awesome glow-in-the-dark thread!

Then two weeks ago my husband was unexpectedly transfered. We had two weeks to pack, find a place, and get settled. Today, when I should have been putting the final touches on my post and project I packed the moving van. I was so jazzed about this hop and don't even have the internet to play along. I'm posting from my sketchy phone. Sorry to disappoint and I hope you enjoy the hop and come back to see me when I have internet and a computer again.

Here's the sad and nearly empty state of my craft room. I miss sewing!
Here are the other stops on the hop. My silly phone won't do links. I so so wish I could have played along! There was just no time.

  47. Sometimes, you can plan as much as you can and it won't work, I know, but this is life and I just hope for your and your family that you will very soon settle down and feel confortable at your new home! We are witches, so we have lots and lots of magical power, I will beam you even some more from Switzerland, were I am living!
