In my defense I have been busy de-cluttering (okay, purging) my sewing room and my art studio. I have been giving stuff away and listing stuff online for sale.
If you knew my house you would know this is a massive undertaking. I have a hard time letting go because “I might need that someday!” I am one of those people who advocates for the comeback of houses with readily accessible attics. Nothing like a good storage space…just in case. 🙂
That, plus doctor appointment, dealing with contractors, and the gym, have taken up my time.
Today I wandered up to the local yarn store with some unspun fibre to give away. The store owner wanted to spin it, so I said ‘sure!’ As she was fondling it and walking to the seating area, I noticed some drop dead gorgeous newly hand dyed Merino wool braids on the floor. My colours too! She says they’ll be on the shelves next week and selling for $15 each. Hmm…gotta think seriously about this…
I unearthed a lot of unfinished projects in my sewing room. A friend suggested I let my boarder finish them if I could not. Good idea. But the boarder only wanted to finish one of them – a set of quilted potholders. I consider it one less project for me to do. I do not know what I will do with the rest of the sewing projects. Maybe take some time over Christmas to finish them.
All told I have about 8-10 boxes of stuff to go out the door. Not a lot, but it is a start. Plus there is the stuff I want to sell. I am feeling pretty good about cleaning stuff out.
