Hi there everyone. Hope you are settled in and swinging around the world checking out work space. Your influence is incredible had to buy some Tetley tea bags this week and McVities Hobnobs( not as good as digestive bickies)
The past week was a continuation of the great sort out and some hard decisions really about magazines. Since disposing of my fabric stash I decided to divest myself of 15 years of Threads, Cloth Paper Scissors and Beadwork as well as bead and Button. But where to. no-one wants them, the answer is,and despite a few off the wall suggestions, they are going to recycle where these hefty tomes may become new magazines, give new writers, seamstresses, crafters and beaders opportunities to show the world the latest, newest of designs and creativity all stuff that was probably covered in all the recycled mags. You know "everything old is new again."
The desk is cleared, the black are photo holders that I hear are good to store stamps. the white mass are clear plastic bags, they appear to be another collectible. The shelves are cleared of fabric, new plastic drawers set in up replacing tubs. Contains bracing themselves for another full life and a list made of where almost everything is. we have to keep some surprises and the opportunity for the air to turn blue. The yellow steps are essential in the life of one who is vertically challenged. AND there is now only one sewing machine. I donated the 25 year old working machine, though no longer able to embroidery stitch, perfect for embellishing cards! Plus the animal shelter thrift had some one who had called about one.
Behold the empty shelves once filled with magazines. which is why the shelves are bowed! the tubs will be empty tomorrow after the contents are taken to the recycle center. Wow I feel liberated. So Lori thanks for the encouragement, onward to new works.
PS Tripper cat is not at all pleased with the disruption of his afternoon snooze nor the plastic placed in the basket over his favorite fiber art book snoozing place.
