Finally got all the bookcases sorted out; I had one in my sewing room that had more junk on it's shelves than anything useful so I decided to bite the bullet and throw out anything I thought I would no longer use and - voila - a 1m x 2m bookcase with 8 shelves emptied!
So that is out opposite the Sallie one; 2 shelves filled but the rest are gloriously empty. Now I can haunt the local 2nd hand places with impunity knowing I have heaps of room. Just have to tackle the mess I have left in my sewing room.
I haven't actually made any quilts for many years; while my husband was alive I made heaps but I stopped when he died and hadn't got the urge to quilt back. Lately I have been thinking I may start again. The sewing room in the meantime had turned into a storage area so it will need a major cleanup.
There are 5 bookcases (ROTFL) in there but they are all filled with sewing stuff like threads, books on quilting and sewing notions so they will not be moving anywhere in a hurry.
A few years back I moved all my stash from open air shelves into storage boxes, there are 8 very large ones filled with fabric and I think I will leave them in them even if I do start sewing again; just need to sort them a little. They are already sorted by colour but that will need refining.
|These 4 took ages to make ... lol|
Anyway, the bookcases have to stay, and stay filled as they are, plus the shelves of bears, etc. There is also a computer desk with a dead computer but a great flatscreen monitor that, even though it is 6 years old, has only had 3 months use.
There is also a 2 metre table that I use for cutting fabric, sewing on etc. So I think my next project will be to clean it out and throw out anything I will no longer use, or else see if I can sell it. Will be a good idea too, if I decide to move next year as I will have to clear things then.
Time to say goodbye to the orangy/red hair - off to the hairdressers on Monday - decisions, decisions .... what colour to go this time .... lol. I liked the purple and blue, but maybe my hairdresser will have a great suggestion and it will be something totally different!
Sorry this a lousy pic - damn hard to take one of yourself; especially when you need glasses to see.... rotfl - plus it looks sort of pinky blonde which it certainly isn't .... oh well, you sort of get the idea.
