Since our storm damage has made use move his equipment into the house, all my fabric stash as got to be moved. Therefore I decided it was time to clean it out because I don’t sew much anymore. I am making bags to go to the thrift store and bags to go to the local quilt club and even a bag with fabric that could be made into dresses and skirts to go to a orphan community in Africa. I have set aside the fabric that I think I will still make something.
Cleaning and purging can be a very emotional time. I feel good about getting rid of these things and being unburdened by them. Yet there is an exhaustion about it. I don’t know if it is going through the emotions that were attached to the items or what, but my husband is going through it big time with his shop being destroyed and his is not by choice. There is a depression attached to the items, that needs to be purged. I didn’t know it would be there, I felt I would get rid of the items and I would be fine about it. Don’t get me wrong, I do feel good about getting rid of them, I just didn’t know how much was attached to them.
I will be doing a lot of meditating along with this purging. I am also thinking about doing something different with my life. Not sure exactly what yet, maybe once the purging is done then I can get clearer head and see what direction I need to go.
