Out of site ... Out of mind!

I've been decluttering, getting rid of stuff. It's amazing how much "stuff" we accumulate when we have a place to store it. Out of site ... out of mind!

I've been quilting for over 11 years (the number of years have been changed to protect the age of the blogger ;), and let me tell you ... you accumulate a lot of stuff ... projects you've started ... put aside ... that you may or may not want to finish.

Fabric scraps ... OMG!

At what point/size is a fabric scrap considered a discard ... trash? Seriously, I have stuff that is less than an inch big!!!

In my defense, my plan was to create an English Paper Piecing quilt using 3/8" hexes .... CRAZY ... by the way the fabric saving has been going on for years, however I cannot say the same for the project ... it hasn't even been started!!!

Time to get rid of stuff!

I cleared out numerous UFO projects that I have no intentions of completing and gave them, along with the pattern, to a charitable organization. You know what they say ... One person's discard is another person's treasure!

As I was organizing stuff, I came across a box of various fabric scraps.

Some were sewn "left over" from various completed projects ... like the wings of a flying geese that you used as leaders and enders, hoping to include them in your next quilt. Not sure that's ever going to happen ....

Time to continue with the purge.

Catch you all later! Cheers!

Did you hear me yelling?

Here I was, minding my own business, getting dressed for work and out of no where this bottle fell on my foot ... FRIGGEN FRAGGEN $%^&*@

OMG, did that ever hurt ... luckily I had an appointment with my GP the next day. He was certain it was broken ... I mean check out the bruising? His concern ... bone fragments.

After some X-Rays, I am happy to announce that it is not broken ... and no loose bone fragments. Just lots of colors and pain.

The culprit ....

A $30.00 bottle of body cream ... intact ... despite falling on a ceramic floor ... thank you foot for acting as a buffer ... yea right ... Sigh!

I'll be nursing my wound for a while .... Catch you all later!

Happy Valentine's day!

How wonderful that there is a day designated to remembering those we love and how much they mean to us.

I have been fortunate this year to have many people around me that thought of me during this holiday.  Thank you so much for thinking about me. It means a lot to me.

It's been somewhat of a challenging time for me. Lot's of positive changes in my life. However, even thought they are positive and healthy changes, it is still challenging.

I came across this picture posted on Greg Braden's facebook page a while back. It provides a different perspective ...

I love that perspective! Spring will soon be here ... a time to bloom!

Thank you for following my blog. I so appreciate it!
