Spring - or, make that late winter - is for purging...

My condo sewing room - feeling blessed, but crowded!
Many items must go!
The process is ongoing. Having downsized last fall and winter for moving into a condo, spring (if it ever gets to Maine) brings another round of purging.

How could I still have so much stuff? Secretly? I confess; I rented a storage unit to stall and buy some time during the move. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. But now what? I must re-evaluate the quilt collection, fabrics, books, everything sewing related. So, what's a person to do? I've given away, donated to Goodwill and American Quilt Study Group, and sold a lot.

Now, it's time to scrutinize what I couldn't part with on the first go-round. So-o-o-o-o-o, I've rented a table at a Quilters' and Crafters' Sale and will be selling more (new and vintage) fabrics, patterns, blocks, scrap bags, quilt tops, books, gadgets, yarn and other knitting stuff, and more. Maybe even some scrapbooking things. It all depends on my progress this week.

For those in the Augusta, Maine area, the sale is next Saturday, March 29 from 9 to 1 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 9 Summer Street. I think there will be about 20 vendors. It should be a fun day!
