Happy New Year! It's not too late to say that, is it? I'm pretty sure six days old qualifies as new.
I've had a little break - from pattern writing, blogging, Instagram... all that computer stuff. It's been a time of getting rid of things I don't need, use or want, tidying and reorganising, and finishing tasks that have been left far too long. Oh, and for relaxing. :)
I tackled my overflowing scrap bin most recently, a regular 'waste paper basket' that I drop all my trimmings, off-cuts and thread ends into. I swear that bin is like the TARDIS - bigger on the inside. Once the contents were spread out on the floor for sorting it was hard to believe it all came from one little bin.
Anyway, I ended up having to re-think my scrap storage system. I had been using plastic sandwich bags - one for each colour - but now I'm using four 10 litre ice cream tubs instead. Much better! Easy to rummage through and plenty of room.
I'm not done with the purging or tidying. I have an overwhelming need to get all the extra stuff OUT of my space, and give myself more room to think. I'm gradually doing it everywhere in the house - except for hubby's study!
It feels wonderful! Perhaps you'd like to give it a go? As habits and happiness writer Gretchen Rubin says "Outer order contributes to inner calm". I'm really finding it to be true.
Bye for now x
