Wow, these last few weeks have just zipped by!
I've not been doing much sewing lately, & strangely for me, I'm not even having withdrawals... been quite busy with other things & in particular I've been continuing to organise my fabrics & sewing things into their new storage places.
There's also been a lot of items go to new homes, which is a fab way to create more space for the things that are staying!
Somehow or other, the issue of me emptying that room has been quite the trigger for us to go through our whole home & give it a good clean out... after 21 years, we sure have accumulated a few things!
Not that we are hoarders, we are just well-practiced at 'doing it later'... we've held on to some things that we really don't need any more & just never gotten around to parting with them.
Here's the results of some of my efforts during the week:
Little pieces, less than 50cm
Pieces ranging from 50cm to 2m WOF
Christmas stuff too!
Doesn't it look so good... all organised & easier to see exactly what I have!
The tubs are about 6½ inches deep, perfect depth for this purpose & even when they're full, they're not too heavy.
And they can stack, stack, stack...
Goodness, I have a l-o-t of stuff! Like going to a quilt shop in my very own garage!
Thank you again to everyone who sent good wishes to SM for his injuries - he's recovered so well... pretty much back to his old self now... sometimes just the tiniest bit protective of the injured area, which is understandable... but it all looks good.
(mr15 was sick at that time too, so all my homegrown nursing skills were put to work!)
On Wednesday 8th, we have a family first - one of my DDs is off on her very first international travel! I'm feeling a bit nervous about it all, but as she's going with her best friend who has done this same travel twice before, that gives me some comfort. She's very organised, & I'm sure it will all be a fantastic experience for her. She'll be away for just over two weeks... that's plenty long enough for me!
