Binging and Purging

One thing nice about the Memorial Day weekend is I really don't have to stress too much over school. There are two weeks left, I know what I'm doing and needless to say I am breathing a sigh of relief.

I've been doing a lot of purging in the sewing room. I went through a stack of magazines, saved the ones I want and put the rest in a box to donate to the guild quilt show boutique table. I also found some notecards, nick-nacks, and patterns that I know I will never do anything with. I am nowhere near done though and will work on this from now until the show in July.

The up side of all this is that I found the camera case and the file containing all of the disks for my laptop (Kevin is laughing at me).

Part of my purging will be looking seriously at my stash and perhaps having a yard sale on my blog. Somewhere in time I really liked, even loved, all of this fabric. But there comes a time when reality bites me in the butt and i need to pass it along to someone who can really make use of it.

So blogland friends, keep your eyes open. The yard sale will open soon.


PS I guess I never did buy Bonnie Hunter's Leaders and Enders book.... so I just ordered (Kevin laughed at that too).

I really want to know........

about your iron.

What kind do you have?
Why do you like it?
Do you use steam all the time?
Do you have an 'automatic shut-off" feature and does it bug you?

Anything you can tell me will help. My friend Donna is allowing me to test-drive her Oliso so I will get to that ASAP.

I have two old GE irons... heavy as all get out... and they are HOT!!! - pulling oodles of electricity which means I really don't want to leave them on while I'm sewing (thus the question about the auto shut-off thingy).

I appreciate your input... happy weekend!!

I know I had it....

I know I bought this..... anyone know where I put it?????

I guess after school is done, I'll need to rip and tear and put away in the sewing room.... but if I'm going to do that, I'm going to have a new floor put down and get the ratty old carpet out.

Bonnie is going to think I'm nuts.

You really needed to know this didn't you :o)
