HA! I was happy to be corrected this morning on just WHAT day of the week it is! I don’t know why, but when I woke up this morning, I had on my mind that it was MONDAY…not Sunday!
This is awesome! This means I have a whole extra day to do “stuff” before heading out to Alabama early Thursday morning! It’s an 8 hour drive – so with lunch and gas and everything else, I’m giving myself 9 hours and will be leaving the house around 5:30 am on Thursday. OY! Lecture Thursday Night…Double OY~~Maybe…I’ll leave Wednesday afternoon and drive half way instead~~ Or I’m really going to be wiped out for my lecture on Thursday night!
So..back to my day! I decided…it’s TIME!
Time for TAKING TIME….to tackleTHIS:
((OH yes, piles of fabric yardage that go back to my trip to Hershey in JULY!!))
((Oh, this table is packed with fabric, and some recyclable articles of clothing, and fat quarter boxes and orphan blocks and……))
It’s time to slow down, even though I have sewing on the brain…to get it all back where it needs to GO! And if it is a newer purchase and hasn’t HAD an assigned spot yet, to FIND IT ONE!
A funny thing happened when I started to uncover this table……remember me being frazzled about losing THIS??
MY BLUE TOOTH ear thing!! Yep. It was buried under piles of fat quarters and fabric yardage on the big cutting table in the “other” side of the basement.
I knew it would show up SOMEWHERE at SOME POINT.
That side of the basement is not heated, so in the winter months, unless you want to be over there in a parka, things DO just get laid on the table until it warms up enough to want to be in that side of the basement comfortably.
So now I’ve started turning the mess ((That grew over many months of neglected time)) to THIS:
It’s amazing how just having things folded into equal sizes makes everything look better. I also see a LOT of chrome yellow and at the far far end ((though you can’t see it as well)) a lot of yuk green! LOL! And when I'm done folding, onto it's shelves it will go!
There is more to do. But sometimes a day spent reorganizing and re-familiarizing myself what what already LIVES in my basement can inspire me on to future projects by using what I have --- We all need to re-confirm this to ourselves at one point or another don’t we? Or -- MORE OFTEN would be good too, wouldn’t it?
It’s a good thing I won’t be headed down I-85 on my way to Alabama– Or I’d be tempted to make a pit stop at Mary Jos! Instead, I’m going to head over I-40 and route through Asheville, Knoxville, Chattanooga and down into Huntsville!
Come to think of it, I’ve never BEEN to Chattanooga….and I bet there are awesome antique malls on the way. If it were you, would you go WEDNESDAY instead of trying to cram it all into Thursday? Just for some wandering opportunities? I’ll have to think on this – but you know me, I’m already leaning toward it!
