Clearing out

Today I am stuck in the house by choice. Not feeling my best is playing a factor but I probably could get out and do something but WHY?

I need the clear out some things that are not being used nor will be use anytime soon. No I am not giving away my fabric stash! I am always looking for more fabric but I am trying to sell some furniture that currently not in use or soon to not be in use.

I have listed one item on craiglist It is a Dark wood vanity with mirror that my great aunt gave to me. I love this but it is currently in the garage because it is too large to go into my bedroom.


The mirror is very heavy and has the wood backing that is cut to the same shape as the mirror. The mirror is not glued to the wood backing it is attached with brackets.



The vanity is also heavy. It has 7 drawers the 4 lower drawers are very deep the other 3 are regular depth and the one in the middle has a divider in it.



I have had this vanity since she died. I have never fully used and kept it because she gave it to my. I am going to stage a better picture of it and keep it that way. I love this and truly wish I could keep it but every place that I have lived in since being married does not have enough room for it. So I would rather see it going to someone who will use it.

If you or you know someone who would be interest in this just email me.

I also have a wardrobe that currently being used to hold material. But since it has no shelves it is difficult to gain access to my material without taking all the stuff out. I either have to put shelves in it or sell it and use the monies for new shelving.



Don't you just love the way the wood looks!



Please excuse the disorganization. But this is a cedar line wardrobe which i felt is an excellent place to store fabric.

I thought about using it in the garage to store out of season clothes but I pouted like a child until Todd took it out of the garage to put it where it is now.

So I think I will just try to find kind of shelving to go into it.

I also have a sewing cabinet. I do not use it becasue my machine does not fit into it. So it is being use to hold stuff.



If I keep looking around and I sure to find more stuff to clear out!

Right now I will clear out some debris so I can get started on my suit.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
