Have been working on decluttering my sewing space. I am very lucky as I was able to convert my son's bedroom to my very own studio and happy space. Problem is, that over the years I have also collected many books, patterns, and - well we won't discuss fabric and threads. Now that I have all the time I want to design, create and produce I need more room and less of the books etc. I have pulled out many books that no longer suit what I do and need to decide on what to do with it. Think I'll try and sell the books - after all I did pay a pretty penny for them and someone else may find it's just what they've been looking and want the great bargain. What do you do when you find you need to move things out......
Ok so it's time to confess - I am a lousy time manager. I succumbed to the great weather we've been having to work on the yard rather than finishing projects on hand. All these years I had a problem with spring yard work because I was confined to weekends (was already dark when I got home evenings) so I was elated to be able to spend the last few days cleaning and pruning and watering the landscape around me. Quilting was put on the back burner. Weather promises to get cold again tomorrow so I will be back on track soon.
How many of you have this problem? End result is I have lots of work to catch up on - proposals, samples and the dreaded taxes.
Retirement - a new journey begins.
The new year brings changes and new opportunities to be embraced. Got a new camera as a retirement gift and I'm ready to see what I can capture in the lens - textures, color and so much more. Some of the things already on the horizon are:
The Southern New Mexico Festival of Quilts in June - Alamogordo.
Craftours Cocoon in July - Santa Fe
International Quilt Show in November - Houston
Followed by a wonderful trip to Guatemala with Pam Holland
Stay tune for new adventures, photos and who knows.......
