One of the categories that is going to be hard for me to edit is textiles. I'm a sucker for a beautiful blanket, afghan, set of sheets, pair of pillowcases, tablecloth, napkin. I have LOTS of them and I'm not exactly sure how to determine what to keep and what to let go. I only need so many for myself of course but am also aware that the kids may someday really appreciate being given a baby blanket that was theirs or a quilt they used to cover up with on the couch. So I'm going to admit that I'll end up putting some into long term storage as much as I hate to.
I can, however, let go of the following today:
1. A patchwork pillow sham
2. Some fabric left over from when I had the slipcovers for the couch made - mango yellow with tiny red monkeys (yes, I'm serious)
3. Some beautiful cotton yardage with tiny little cherries and leaves that I meant to make sundresses for the twins from but never did
4. A little stand up magnifying glass that you are supposed to look through to do detail work
5. A ceramic 5x7 inch picture frame
Now back to my chicken coop project!
