I am sorting through the stuff I’ve brought home from my parents house. I am walking a thin line between being inspired and overwhelmed. Actually right now I am overwhelmed, but I am working toward getting control and then being inspired… So I’m trying to organize what I will keep and get rid of a certain amount of stuff- that’s the hard part. I have an aversion to putting stuff into the trash, so I feel like I need to find good homes, as if the stuff was kittens!
I went to the library to see if I could find some books about stuffed animal making. I’m thinking about that direction for the woolen fabrics- you can see I’ve got a lot to work with-
I’m packing it up for now. I’ll put it out of sight and make decisions about what to keep after a few experiments.
There are similar piles of silk, bark cloth, table linens, art books, interesting papers and old sewing notions. And this is just the stuff I’m considering keeping. There is lots of other stuff that I’m listing on ebay and/or calling local dealers about. In my house this could be a never ending process.
I’ve got to get to doing some of my own work. I’m getting cranky. Always a sign.
