* Bless this Mess * (AAM challenge)
I have a penchant for collecting items, which I deem “necessary” for my hobbies. The “necessary” part of the sentence is debatable I suppose! I have come to the conclusion that I have too much . . . or too many . . . or perhaps an excess of a few things which I use in my sewing room. (I truly do use these items.) This said, I thought that Janet’s AAM Challenge was perfect to get this off of my chest and confront the issue! Confront the issue on paper anyway!
Journaling: I have much to much when it comes to my sewing stash, I’m afraid. I have boxes of fabric tucked away . . . out of sight . . . out of mind! I really try not to visit my favorite sewing stores for fear of coming home with new treasures. I do use all items from my collective supplies most every day when I crank up my sewing machine. I really need several different types of scissors, trims, threads, pins, needles, buttons, laces, interfacing, rulers, tapes, binding, sewing patterns in multiple sizes and styles, idea books and instructional books. I need my serger, my sewing machine, my smocking patterns and my pleater. I must have an iron and starch. I adore pincushions and need several for my pins & needles. I am not really sure that I need my collection of vintage pattern books, or vintage sewing patterns, but I sure get lots of pleasure from browsing through them from time to time. I use the old patterns for styles and translate them into modern sizing by way of the newer sewing patterns . . . so I do need them, don’t I?
