And this pause brought to you by the process of cleaning and purging.
This blank space is my imaginary empty spot in my perpetual clutter.
On Monday (my day off) I was going to sew on that skirt project like nobody's business.
But while I was waiting for the stores of my planned errands to open, I started to re-arrange, re-organize and re-cycle the items in my living room. Short version: I removed 51 spools of thread from the living and dining room, vanquished to the bins in the sewing room where they were SUPPOSED to be. (Editor's note, I have only had a sewing room for about a year since eldest daughter moved out, and it has only been functional for a couple months since her belongings which filled half that space were removed.)
For the first time in...forever...the only sewing items in the front half of my house are 1 quilt in lap frame, 1 spool of quilting thread, 1 thimble, 1 pair of scissors and a newly revised mini version bag of emergency hand-quilting items.
My evenings this week have been filled with the processing of the stuff I moved from the living room to alternative spaces. Bedroom is looking good. There are 4 bags/boxes of items to donate. Sewing Studio half managed. Need to sort and send some bins of fabric back to the garage so I have room to work.
I WILL get back to sewing. But only after the clutter is under control.
