Am slowly getting there...am so the Crazy Lady.......

I really think I am a crazy person some days...well to tell the truth...most days....have not got the alpaca scarf blocked as yet, trying to find somewhere large enough to lay it out where the resident cats won't take up residence on it. Have been trying to get my area downstairs organized, have all the cabinets moved in and have been unpacking boxes and getting things put away, some days are like Christmas...finding things I forgot I had...a book I had just got before starting to pack things up to move...then there are the OMG items that makes you wonder why on earth you did not rehome them or toss them and why take up space packing them, sorting things out for maybe garage sale or gifting them elsewhere. Have made a rule that I can only keep what I can fit into the storage cabinets and the storage room...have told the kids that they better hope we live long enough to get this stuff sorted out they will have to do it. I have all my fibre stuff plus...have I mentioned....I used to own a fabric store.....also was a seamstress for a few years....do not want to say how many sewing machines I own....We moved the big cutting table in and got it all reassembled and unpacked a lot of my sewing supply's and got them stored in the area under the table and yesterday we got the padded top put on it. Have the big sewing desk put together for the sewing machine and serger but when! when! can I find some time to do anything. But it is great to see things getting organized and being able to just open a door and get something off a shelf instead of trying to figure out what bin or box they are in. And the best thing is getting all my books unpacked and on a book shelf. I also have to remind myself that the farmers markets are going to be starting in a couple of months so have to make time for getting items knit for the markets. I have been knitting some fingerless gloves and some lightweight ladies socks out of some alpaca/wool yarn. And someday the weather will be warm enough to get out in the yard, keep looking for signs of little green shoots on the perennials but so far nothing, we had a few nice days but now cold weather for a few more days. Am so looking forward for the green...green....

Strange to read about your children inheriting all of your craft stuff. I only said to my daughter the other day (who is definitely not into crafts) that she will have to get a dumper for all the stuff in my work room. lol
In the meantime I shall sit on my chair and drink in all the wool, fabric, buttons etc and enjoy myself. lol

My children would be happy if it was just one dumpster...so better get things sorted. Your creations are so beautiful and inspiring Crafty Cat!! At least we have been downsizing on the animal population...that was giving them nightmares.....
