A table to work at! Now I won't have to clear my sewing off the kitchen table every night before we eat.
The miscellany cache. Tools, books, and random stuff like antlers, monkeys, and twine.
Getting into the belly of the beast...my vintage buttons, wool roving, leather, and shells. The shelving to the right holds canvases, framing tools, wood, drawing tools, and wire.
Yeah. My felted wool. There are 10 56qt boxes, and three garbage bags full of wool. Fabric and candle-making supplies are beneath the table to the left.
When cleaning and organizing my new space, it became abundantly clear that um, I have a lot of stuff. Actually more stuff than will fit in my space. I need to rectify that so I've made a resolution. Here goes...deep breath...
I have resolved not to buy any craft supplies for one year.
EEEEK!!! No wool, no buttons, no nothin'. I've been wanting to do this for a while and now seems like the right time. I'm still allowing myself to gather natural materials and buy parts should some critical tool or piece of machinery break down, but that's it. I'm alternately terrified and excited. I may need some support if I spy a great wool coat in the thrift store window. Is there a wool-addiction support group? No? There should be.
Hopefully no one has turned me into that Hoarders show yet. What I hope is that I will work through some of this stash, simplify a bit, and be stretched creatively by the exercise.
Wish me luck!
