The long weekend

I didn’t get any sewing done on my quilts over the holiday break but I do have some pictures of my work-in-progress Princess quilt:

It’s been a long time since I touched this quilt and it’s imperative that I hand bind it before Christmas when I’m giving it as a gift.

What I did manage to do was do a DEEP CLEAN of my closet.

I went through all my clothes and shoes and got rid of nearly 10 bags of clothing and 40 pairs of shoes.

In the mix were 5 pairs of boots, about a dozen coats and jackets, and a shit ton of dresses.

Some I was sad to let go.

I held on to the red silk dress I wore to my law school reception.

I let go of my velvet dress from my Senior Year Ball.

It was a nice walk down memory lane, seeing all the clothes in my closet that I’d nearly forgotten I had.

But the best part of all?

Actually being able to close my closet doors.

Priceless.

One thought on “The long weekend

  1. I still have some of the dresses from HS. I cannot let them go..I also can’t get more than my left leg into the waist, but I do have a dress dummy who wears them. She’s old and I can’t cinch her waist to that tiny either, but Gunne Sax dresses were so intricate and mom was the seamstress for most of them.
    I love that quilt!!!! It amazes me how you can do that. I was trying to cut out a paper free hand star this week and finally decided to stop fiddling cuz it was NEVER going to be even!!!
