the bookshelf in the upstairs sewing room......has been culled
and these books have found a new home
This set of shelves has been cleansed of a lot......
I didn't part with some things. Too many memories are tied up in the tablecloths, the bib, the apron, the pillowcase
Decisions were not made lightly. I checked each and every thing before it went. Books were looked through while I sat on the floor. Magazines were flipped through, but I really knew which ones I didn't want.
I kept my Quiltmaker and Fons and Porter. I love my Quilts and More so they are still on the self.
Photos definitely are being kept as they hold so many memories of our life. The kids, the grands and the holidays we've shared.
There is more to go.
Patterns and fabric will be taken care of one day soon. What I don't want in fabric I know homes that will welcome it.
I'm feeling really good about the cleansing of this old house. Its like cleansing the soul, it's just good for it.
I did finish a quilt amongst all this. It needed the binding sewn down and it is now d.o.n.e! I took it to stitch and chat and then sat for 2 evenings to finish it off. Just in time for one month from today!
We had a fresh snowfall so outside I went.
Thank you Betty for inspiring me to do this pattern. I've got my thinking cap on already for the next one!
and how about the tread on my new boots!
Pretty cool snowflake!
