My basement was full of "stuff". It had collected there for over 30 years. I put off straightening it out many times. This was the year to Clean The Basement!! Karen O'Shea of Tranquil Spaces did such a wonderful job cleaning out and organizing my sewing and craft rooms I hired her again, this time to clean out the basement! She's a whirlwind!!! I rented a dumpster for two weeks and we went to town. I went through so many boxes and just had to wonder, why did I keep this?? Again, three groups: Save, Toss and Donate.
Goodwill and our local thrift shop were happy to see me. Now it's cleaned out, organized and this week Ronnie and I put a new floor down in the room I'm using as my "wet studio". Painting and Dyeing fabric! I've already been busy in there and I know just how lucky I am. It's been many years, wish I had this space when I was in my 30's but now is better than never. :) New Hampshire Home Magazine has an article on Karen decorating a beautiful home for the holidays. It's on newstands now, a lovely article!
This month I went to a meeting for the NH Quilt Documentation Project, Phase II. I'm one of the directors and we are working on getting the book ready for publication. We documented some very amazing quilts through the years and I enjoyed getting to know some new "quilting friends". Well at that meeting one of the members mentioned there was a quilt show in nearby Manchester.
After the meeting, I made my way there and I'm so glad I did. It was a very good show and of course I love the vendors, who doesn't?
Peace and Have a Little Fun Each Day!
