This was supposed to be a 'making it Monday' post, but c'est la vie.
Just tellin' it like it is in this belated-birthday card I made a little while ago. I will go put it in the mail in a bit...if I can psych myself up to walk to the mailbox.
Pretty much the only other thing I've been making lately is a giant mess! I have the office/craft room torn completely up...to the point that it has spread to the kitchen and dining room...and then I twisted my knee yesterday which just slows down the process more. ugh.
(Why, oh why, can't I just wiggle my nose and have everything neat and tidy?!)
I am trying to be brutal towards downsizing my book collection. All those reference and how-to books are filled with information that can now be easily found on the internet. The gardening books were pipe dreams, since I have never been a gardener, and their info, too, can be found online. I kept a few very practical ones for Carey to choose from (he says that he may have a vegetable garden if I ever let him retire), and a couple of practical home remedy types...you know...in case TSHTF. Fiction I haven't read thus far, and don't particularly have a strong desire to, are going. I am keeping only ones I have read and love and could read over and over...again, in case TSHTF and I ever have to live without electricity or Kindle.
I need more shelf space to put fabric on, so that it is easily found and accessed. Then I need to rearrange the room so that I can have my sewing machine set up and usable at all times. I need to get the clean up and organization finished and the machine in high gear! I have a lifetime supply of fabric and a family to supply with quilts. You may ask how I plan to sew if I have prepper fears of life without electricity? I'm keeping my old treadle for my back up! LOL
Sitting on the computer is not getting any progress made toward these goals.
