About a month ago, I reached critical mass. The dust bunnies were multiplying faster than the ones outside. So...I just had to attack the house! My sons and I spent Spring Break capturing those little bunnies and banishing them from the house. Along the way, we finally got rid of excess clothes, books, toys, and kitchen equipment. My husband even joined the bandwagon, and got rid of clothes in the closet he's had since we got married, nearly 20 years ago! The house feels lighter, airier, and I can finally breathe and sew again!
While I still have some more work to do in my closet and the garage, I am finally at a place I can conquer it as the last frontier of my sewing room. Not only do I have projects running amuck, my room also became a dumping ground of sorts. There are books, gift wrap, boxes, toothbrushes (??), and who knows what else lurking in there. So before I could sew, I actually needed to declutter the room of the items that don't belong. I also needed to restore some of my fabric to it's proper home, and tidy up the space. That was my day's project. While not perfect, the excess has been removed, the floors have been vacuumed, the out of place fabric has been put away, and my happy little sewing room is back to it's normal state of disarray.
I'm back to working on yesterday's guild project, which I didn't finish. Turns out I took my sew in stabilizer instead of my fusible, so I just stopped working at that point. Now that I can get the correct stabilizer out of my stash, I can finish the project. Here are some photos of what others made, and I'll show you mine when it is complete.
Since I haven't actually finished anything, my stats haven't changed. I haven't acquired anything either, which is perfect! See actual projects others are working on and how they are managing their stashes over at Patchwork Times.
Until next time, Happy Spring!
