It's time for some tidying and re-organization, because the project pile
And even though the project pile is getting unmanageable, I'm getting twitchy and ready for something new. (Do you see Olive's tail in the photo?)
I already had one close call with a potential new project last week! So it's time to take charge.
About a month ago I bought this book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I agree with everything she says -- even the weird stuff.
To me, it's not so much a book about tidying, it's a book about how to make decisions. The practice is tidying.
Today I started the process with my clothes (the first step on the list). My wardrobe was already in good shape, I thought, but I still reduced it by more than half. There were some surprises too, for what made the cut and what didn't.
The next step is my books, which is quite a sticky source of attachment for me. But, I'm committed, and interested to see what will happen!
So, I'm going to clear out of blogland for a while.
And with luck, I'll be clearing out the house a little too. Maybe a lot!
Don't wait up. :D
(And no, there is no mention of a quilt fabric stash in Kondo's book. But, I want to do it too. Maybe last! Honestly, I think the books will be the hardest.)
In the meantime, happy stitching!
