I finally decided to tackle the studio this weekend. The mess inside has been growing steadily worse. It got to the point where I could barely get in to get yarn. The good thing is I can shut the door and not look at it. But the bad thing is I can shut the door and not look at it.
So, I went in and cleaned, ruthlessly got rid of clutter (why was I hanging on to one of Dave's shirts that needed buttons, when it doesn't even fit him any more?) I threw out junk, shredded documents, and tidied and organized everything - not only can you see the floor now, but you can actually get in and move around.
Of course, my shadow had to help through the whole process.
He oversaw the organizing of the yarn.He kept watch over the pile of clothes that need ironing
And all that "helping" wore him out because he soon crashed in the box of Christmas knitting.
My next big project is to go through and decide which beads I want to destash. I don't have time to make jewelry like I used to, so I'm going to be selling a lot of it off - that will help with the clutter as well.
Of course, there's no help for the yarn clutter. Try as I might, I couldn't resist stopping in at the Needle Emporium's Tent Sale on FridayI got 10 balls of this lovely yarn (fingering weight super fine merino) for just $30 - what a deal!
