Who would think that a month of no finishes and VERY little sewing would feel... well... GREAT? That would be me thanks to this challenge I joined mid March.

I have cleared out closets, cabinets, drawers and our storage room. Places that caused many guilty feelings about being unable to make decisions or get on top of things. I can't tell you how many bags of shredded paper have left my home. Or articles of clothing that I never wear. Or VCR tapes when we haven't had a VCR in years. So much stuff!
I've essentially doing in 40 days what I thought would take the whole year. And it feels wonderful to know EXACTLY what I have and where it is. And I'm a little lighter physically too.
Moving a few gems each Sunday when I weigh in! It's surprising how many steps I get in while sorting through stuff and finding a better home for it. Up and down the stairs many times a day with a box or bag in my hand.
My quilting room is calling my name and now that I'm almost done with our indoor spaces I'm ready to sew. I think it's time to start real life again... where you do a bit of this and a bit of that. And wait for spring to arrive so I can declutter our garages & shed.
Happy April everyone! I can't wait to mess up this room.
