I’m not really sure why we look so weirdly truncated, but I’m sure it has something to do with my (non-existent) photography skills.

I hope you enjoyed the many moods, and faces, of me.

[Freecycle-LakelandFL] WANTED: fabric, fabric, sewing notions & yarn (Lakeland Florida )‏

WANTED: fabric, fabric, sewing notions & yarn

Would like any of your stock pile of old, ugly prints. Trying to make
variety of things. Dolls, guilts, throw pillows etc

Tiny prick of conscience. I have more than I’ll ever need.

Stupid minimalist and cleaning blogs. Making me feel guilty.

I’m not a hoarder, I’m a seamstress!   I just have a sorta huge stash.

My Fabric Stash

My Fabric Stash

Oh, alright!  I contacted the person, okay?

Now I need to sort, and purge what I’m willing to give up.

Do you see my nail marks, where I’m holding on for dear life??

Keeping a tight grip

Keeping a tight grip

Somethings are easier to get rid of than others.

Fabric is just so full of possibilities!  I can make it into any thing I want!  I can be artistic!  It’s one of my treasures!

But, if it sits there until doomsday, what have I really accomplished?  So, gonna give it up…

Not all of it, of course.  You think I turned “cleanie” over night?  Au contrair mon cherie!  {If I didn’t spell that right, sorry!  I left my French dictionary at the store.}

Will proceed to sorting…..

Update:  Patience came and I let go of A LOT of stuff.  She was such a sweet lady, I kept handing her more and more!  And after she left, I didn’t regret a thing!  (Except not getting a pic of all the material going out the door.)

Que sera, sera.

Saga of the Sad Bare Windows

Once upon a time, there were 2 sad, bare windows.

The light shone dimly through them.  The dark seeped through them.  They knew they were not fulfilling their true beautiful potential.

One day a seamstress came to visit,

and noticed how sad they were.  She exclaimed, “Oh, windows!  I see how sad you are, I’m here to help.”

The windows were so excited, they sparkled happily.

So, the seamstress sat down and sewed all night.  In the morning, the windows were dressed in gorgeous Purple cafe curtains.

The windows were so happy to have the gorgeous Purple skirts that they sparkled and shone so brightly that the seamstress had to wear shades.
