I went from wanting Monroe, a tiny picnic, miniature sampler, a filled cart at 123, to ..... eh. I should have known better than to not have another project at the ready so there would be no slack time. But I failed. Slumping slacker I am. Have no desire to even look through charts. So instead I started another pile for reduction. Another bag of floss, this time almost 400 skeins, shipped out yesterday to the next in line from the prior offer. That will probably be all of it. No one was interested in the Soie d'Alger I tried to sell a while ago so out it went along with the cards of Alpaca and remaining Whisper. I just don't want to continue storing items I have not and never will use.
For some reason, Basic Cloth is something I just keep putting back. I won't stitch it but love the fabric so maybe I will find another use for it.
Tons of small freebies and notes, instructions, hints, tips, take up several thick folders and I will go through them next. In that group, is the detailed instruction for over one stitching from Joanie F that I will be holding on to. It makes good sense to me and is different from what I've always done, so it may be the solution.
My extra wide LoRan magnetic board that I used to use is now hanging over my sewing machine to keep needles and dodads handy. The large clips can hold instructions or pattern, and especially small pouches for rulers, pokes, and rippers. Mark drilled slotted holes for hanging but I will use screws for securing it to the wall, otherwise, it moves outward when removing something from a strong magnet. It will keep small items that I continually lose in one place and be smack in front of me.
Another thing I don't need is a very nicely made tote, I believe for a frame of some sort. It is heavy loop soft pile fabric lined with a very nice sort of silky material. Gusseted bottom, 16" wide and 24" long. Black twill straps and Velcro top strip for closing. The lining is a grayish color and the outside a dark blue.
I will probably sell this for $20 including shipping (USA) because I have another that is short and wide for a frame that I don't even use. That will be the next to go.
I've asked Mark to hide my Dove chocolate because I NEED to lose weight and have no will power. Unfortunately, this is a task he doesn't excel in. I have found them every time, so asked him to lock them in his car. He's afraid he will need to replace a window so declined my request.
We set up a new TV today, ultra high def and in order to get a decent picture, we need to rent a cable box for another $15 a month. The other HD TVs are sharp and clear without the box but not this one. It's a "smart" tv that connects to my wireless internet service and offers everything everything, of which I know nothing nothing. A smart phone before a smart tv would have helped. Well... any smart would have.
Have a good one!
