But that will have to wait – bins of books lie on the floor, and I want them on to the shelves I’ve waited so long for.
The replacing of the books in the studio is moving along ---but taking its time as I thumb through each one and decide which to move on to a new home with someone else, or which ones to keep.
SO MANY JOURNEYS!
In amongst the mess I found my first ever magazine article: Doll World, February 1995--
I was so excited over my first ever magazine article – this is when we were living in Burley, Idaho:
Yes, those were the cutesy country doll days!
((And don’t laugh at that hair do!))
This excerpt makes me smile!
“I even taught a few beginning quilt classes at our local fabric store.”
Another treasure was unearthed! I love OLD books on sewing:
Fabrics & Dress, 1937.
Before placing it on the shelf, I thumbed through the pages to find:
HA! Why didn’t I remember this book when I was first trying to treadle?
And as it turns out, I am backwards--- My right foot is at the upper right, and my left at the lower left ----and it feels weird if I try it any other way. I guess I’m left-footed?
Back to the mess ---it will feel soooo good to have these book cases taken care of, the bins and boxes emptied and some stuff cleared out to give me more creative breathing room ---
