De-cluttering


How is it that however many times you have a clear out of the textile stuff you accumulate, there still seems to be the same amount of it in the cupboard next time you look!

I started the day yesterday with about 3 hours of much needed housework, Yuk! I know, but when you start finding dog hairs in places they shouldn’t really be, you know the time has come to give in!

The trouble was that once I started I couldn't stop, you know the feeling I'm sure. I had planned a nice afternoon on the embellisher, yes that again, more delaying tactics on the rust project. I suspect that's what started the HW blitz in the first place.

Well it wasn't all bad I cleared a huge bag of fabrics dating back to a time I'd rather not admit, and they’re ready now to pass onto my daughter, so she can guard them for the next 20 years. Anyway I did discover some little gems to use with my latest toy and I even organised my work area especially for easy access to colour coded jars of little scraps! Oh dear I think I might be hooked, thanks Helen

Hi
I too began yesterday with some overdue housework and I agree Yuk - hate it.
It doesn't take much to distract me from housework - there's always tomorrow and it will be dusty again by then so may as well do it tomorrow.

It is nice to have all at hand and organised. I spend a lot of time looking for things I know I have but don't remember where I have stored it.
Clearing out - Hmmm - not very good at that.
Cheers
Shirley
