What Have I Done?

When we moved from California to Arizona I knew I had to own up to my stash. I needed to sort and pare it down. To compound the problem, I don't just have a fabric stash. I also have yarn, fiber and scrapbook stashes. On top of having multiple hobbies was the problem of getting settled and the fact that some of my materials were in a storage unit.

Well, this week I asked my dear Motorcycle Dude to bring all of my "stuff" to the house so that I could begin to deal with the problem. It was scary enough when it was all in boxes, but now that it is out for sorting I think it might take over the state!

I've sorted by kind: fabric, fiber, yarn, scrapbooking. Now I'm fine tuning the sort of the fabric by sorting according to color. What I don't know how to do is decide what to keep and what to give up. That is the next hurdle.

There is one member of the house that is enjoying this process.

Fred thinks that we've just brought in all kinds of lovely sleeping places just for her.

(yes, Fred is a girl. How she got her name is another post)

  1. Maybe the answer to deciding what to keep is that if you've done without it for a year, you don't really need it? Alternatively, keep it all, it might come in useful one day!

  2. I don't envy you right now -- I need to do the same thing in my play room!
