Hi Everyone,

I have been so busy destashing that I have totally lost track of time.  I have been needing to do this for a looooong time.  Way to much of everything.  I acquired fabric and craft stuff from my mother and cross stitch stuff from my MIL.  I never realized how stressful this can be.  I am not a BO (born organized) person to begin with.  I tend to be a sentimental and I might need that keeper.  So far I am eliminating books.  Using yarn which I downsized a couple years ago. Sorting fabric and getting rid of a bunch.  I may have to go through it again but I am making progress.  I have organized beads which is a TV craft.  

I ventured to Goodwill the other day looking for a few summer tops.  Last years are too big and are hanging very loosely.  As I was getting ready to head to the front to pay for my finds my attention was averted to a very large stack of bolts of fabric.  OH NO!!!!  Here I am making headway at home and Goodwill has FABRIC!!!  So what do I do?  I had to look.  The one thing that save me was that most of it was knit and polyester.  But in the back of the pile I found 2 bolts of some I thought I could use.  Now one of these that I thought I could maybe make some shorts or long pants out of had about 14 wraps on the bolt. Needless to say I snatched it up fast.  The second was kinda like a very light denim AND it had about 24 wraps.  So I snatched that too.  Now we are talking approximately 14 yards on one and 25 yards on the other.  I didn't even hesitate.  WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS I THINKING???????  Well I will tell you.  They were $3.99. A BOLT.  NOT a yard.  At that I figured even if I gave 2/3 of it away I was still ahead of the game.  It went home with me and I am still wondering what I was thinking.

Back to the destashing till the next time.
