In the beginning of my 'crafty' endeavors while still working a day job, it was making dolls. Then, when plans to build this house and move back to Delaware from Maryland plans were to make a couple quilts, wall hangings and do stitchery for a warm and welcoming home.
Then it developed into doing craft shows to sell my dolls and make money to buy more fabric to make more dolls. You get my drift.
This weekend I'll be visiting my crafty, younger, hooker, rug camp girlfriend and we will be on our way to Ligonier for a class with Barb. Here is what I'm passing onto my friend Deb and she can share with our other friends.
In the photo above you can see maybe 4 shopping bags filled with colorful cotton and a box which has papers in it for covering band boxes. Cottons in the background plastic haven't been purged yet.
Obviously since these have not been finished by me they need to be passed on to my young friend and her friends.
I've gone in cycles with my craft passions. There was a time when I couldn't get the knitting needles out of my hands. Then it was stitchery and quilting. No longer interested.
My passion now is rug hooking. So think it is time to release the other fibers in which I no longer have an interest.
Oh, this is really crazy. But another piece of stash from my attic which was released today was this.
I thought that my son and wonderful DIL would have a dozen kids and purchased all these pot holder kits. Heck, besides one of them was vintage, lol. So today with permission from the mom, these were given to my neighbor who has two young girls.
Although try as I may to rid myself of this clutter there seems to be no end. So you are thinking..."why didn't she get rid of that crap before now?" Would you believe that until now I truly believed I'd finish the quilts, make more dolls. Nope.
At least I'm now on the right track.
