The Rooster mutters about how long before I'll change things again. I'm hurt. These are upgrades, not changes! ;^)
I now have a helper on Tuesday afternoons and we purged and organized. I would look at some fabric, remembering when and where and what for and wax nostalgic. But the two questions that solved the dilemmas were- 1) Would I want a quilt from it? And 2) Would anyone else? Surprisingly my young gal okayed some. I did give her all the novelty fabric to sort and she commented that she could see some would indeed be hard to part with! lol I'm embarrassed by my excess but I am already feeling way lighter, freer and definitely happier.
After she left it was up to me to bag and load the trunk of the car. I'm sure the hood/nose is pointing slightly heavenward as if to say 'Really!'. I did scoop up one or two, no more than half a dozen, as a last moment reprieve. I also forgot to edit the green fabrics which are squeezed into their allotted shelf. oops! The main colours aren't stacked nicely but they are in their place.
