Purge

The other day when I swizzled stuff around in the bedroom, I removed one piece - my Goodwill bin. I don't particularly like where I had to move it too, BUT more importantly, even with the treadmill set up, the room looks so much roomier. So much less stuff. And I like that.

So, I'm now on a mission. I'm pretty good about hauling shit to Goodwill about every two weeks. I need to do more. So now, when the housecleaner comes, I will absolutely fill up my cart for sure and not just maybe.

I have an air bed. It's a good one. I have only used it once about 10 years ago. But, it's one of those things that when you need it, it's great to have. I keep thinking that one hot night, the a/c will die and/or our electricity will get cut and I'll need to sleep out on the terrace. The airbed will be my savior. Right now, it's behind a dresser in the bedroom but the rearrangement of stuff means now I can see it which is not good. So it needs to go somewhere. The only where is out in the terrace cupboards which are full.

So, that's where the purging will start. My goal is a place for the air bed plus some extra room just because. I can do it. And it's almost cool enough to to today so I might give it a start after I finish typing this.

I did fix my shirt. And it's good. A nice new shirt for Fall.

Simple construction but a fabric combo that I'd delighted with. I acquired both these fabrics for various reasons and, turns out, I wasn't crazy about either one. But, together, I love them!

My goal in sewing is going to be to use what I've got and try not to buy new fabric until it's all gone. It will never happen but maybe I can make a dent.

Oh and I also took the quilt pieces that I didn't use and made some pillow cases to match. I can't believe I didn't think of this before.

The Smalls is not really into my writing this entry. So maybe he'd be more into filling the cart from the terrace cupboard. His brother is still asleep. But, this is what he was doing last night.

I think he was having a penguin identity crisis.
