I was able to gather one bin full of stuff to donate to the local thrift store. Getting rid of a bunch of miscellaneous stuff. The cool winter jacket I scored last year at the Value Village I decided to give up. I tried wearing it during the FREEZING winter cold this past year and while it fits and keeps me warm, I don’t like the length. I move around a lot and it was just too short and I ended up getting really wet from the waist down. I’m thinking I need to just layer up and keep an eye out for a longer coat.
I got rid of some clothing (stuff I was going to use for the material) and after looking at a bunch of patterns got rid of all the ones that aren’t in my size (I think I ended up keeping ONE pattern for skirts). What I’m wanting to do is work on our bedroom space and set up a sewing station. I’m not sure how that’s going to work out/look yet. I’m gathering ideas and I’m having to really think and look at the height of the ceiling. The challenge is the A-frame roof. The standing space is located in the center of the room and the wall height is really not that high. Sitting is alright – which is good but I’m trying to figure out where the best place for a sitting work spot.
I’m kinda considering installing a folding table on our closet door as this will:
- put me near the center of the room
- I’d be facing our ladder going downstairs
- I could tuck the sewing machine around the corner when not in active use
- the table would fold flat against the closet door
- a fold up chair could also be placed around the the corner tucked away
I’m taking a look at my crafts and projects and I’m just short of out of control *laughing*. I talked with Sean about it as he was dealing with the same thing when we lived in the condo. I’m taking a long look at everything and deciding what I truly have an active (KEY WORD ACTIVE) interest in vs. things that “look neat and I’d like to try that.” The knitting is staying and I’m picking up crochet and that doesn’t impact space so I’m OK there. I really want to cut back on what I’m dealing with. I find I’ve been doing more jewelry repair to wear stuff I like than I’ve been doing actual jewelry making (from start to finish).
I’ve been liquidating the beads and I think I’m going to work on getting rid of most of them. I’m still going to work with jewelry making but not beaded stuff. It’s just too much stuff. Well that’s about it. I’m going to take a ride to drop off some of this stuff I’ve gathered up. I also need to get stuff together for my niece and nephew <3
Ok I’m out.
