Daily Things: More NapkinsTwo more napkins done. Doing the hem and the mitered corners for these takes more time than I would have thought. When I finish the next set, I'm going to work on a table runner. I've already begun piecing some of the small strips that were left over.
Then if I decide to make another set of coordinating napkins, I think I'll leave them raw edge and let them ravel in the washing machine.
I loved Jane Ann's post about cleaning out the closet and simplifying. Check it out. It really is that time again, isn't it. Yesterday, something started me thinking about hoarding, and I walked around checking my closets which are full of things that have just been put away, out of sight. The idea of going through all of that STUFF made me so anxious that I opened a book to escape! But, truly, books are part of the problem. They overflow the bookcases, are stacked on top of every flat surface-including the hearth, and are threatening to take over.
And the sewing room! I have so much clutter in there that I can't find things I know I have. Which leads me back to the statement: It's that time again. Spring cleaning. Clutter removal. Organization. Simplification.
Yesterday, I was overwhelmed. Today, Jane Ann's post reminds me that it is one step at a time; that even if I never finish, it is necessary to begin.
