This time of the year I seem to get a great urge to clear out, to clear out stash and also wearables but I also have a tendency to keep items that are no longer useful (out of style, tired of them, never wore them, etc.) and it got me to wondering if I am the only sewer here who cannot bear to part with some of those things which should be sent onto another life, whether it is to the thrift store or the ragbag, or maybe consignment store.
I have a skirt from the 1950s that has seen three makeovers, it really has to go – but maybe I can make a cushion cover out of that lovely wool plaid although it definitely does not fit into my decor – you see what I mean. I have coats that are wearable but 20 or so years old and rarely see the light of day. And on and on. Love to hear from your take on this sort of acquisitiveness.
