I spent yesterday shopping with my daughter-in-law. Actually not the whole day; much of the day was spent getting to and from Tulsa and getting around in Tulsa which was a bit of an ordeal but aside from that we had a lovely day. I did not know that there is a JoAnn fabrics in Tulsa! That place is great! I like it a lot better than Hancock’s.
Sadly, I didn’t buy anything very interesting, mostly just some rather dull solids to go with fabrics I already have for quilts. I also bought some lightweight denim to make a jumper and I bought a couple of baskets for containing some of the small stuff that gets left out in the living room and never put away.
A lot of very beautiful and tempting fabric was left in the store. Fabric stores make me feel guilty these days. I always think of all I have to do at home. Much of the massive pile of fabric in my closet is actually just scraps that I saved because “that might be enough to do something with”. I need to go through all that and either plan something for each scrap or throw it out. Then maybe it won’t seem like so much.
This week is going to be cleaning week all around the house, mostly the kitchen. Probably not a lot to throw out there but I’m sure I’ll find a few little things that we haven’t seen in years and therefore can continue to live without. But anyway, I’m hoping I can get “on a roll” cleaning-wise. The hardest part is getting started.
