Too Much of a Good Thing

 Normally I have a Project ReStyle posting on Sundays but I seem to have a bit of a hording emergency on my hands.

Lately I've been going through a collecting phase.  I get so excited about the potential in things that I just have to get my hands on it.  I've started countless knitting and sewing projects only to tuck them away when I don't like the result.  Now that I've started my spring cleaning all that 'out of sight out of mind' has come back to haunt me.  I love yarn and fabric as much as the next crafter but sometimes enough is enough.  It's time to go.

First I filled a laundry basket with acrylic yarn or colors I'm not crazy about.  Then I sorted my yarn from yarn the girls are free to use.  Now I have two tidy shelves for me and a few baskets of kids yarn in the craft room.

 The rest is going to the teachers lounge at school and then on to Goodwill if there is any left.  I even bagged up the projects I knew I'd never finish, maybe someone will use them for scrap yarn. 

It feels so good, like a thick wool sweater has been lifted off my shoulders. 

This afternoon I'm hitting the fabric stash.  Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it.

Wow. Good for you. That was a big project. It takes time to get the oomph, but all is well that ends well. How wonderful to donate your extras!
