If you have a look over on my other joint blog: I have been drawing with Derwent Tinted Charcoal pencils, there is an explanation of how I got to this
From this:

My studio |& storeroom make over is slowly taking shape.  I have far too much stuff.  Daft stuff like a huge box of bits of paper, admittedly the papers are mostly painted or have stuff on them but will I ever use them again
I have made 3 journals out of the papers & still they seem to multiply.  I have found a large box of empty white envelopes!! an old squashy linen bin full of rolls of various stuff & so much wool & I don't do any knitting nowadays - I guess its all for the Smashing machine
On top of all of this odd stuff is a pile of fabrics that are eclectic to say the least - curtain - dress - towels (why?) - velvet thick - oh it goes on and on, part of me wants to take it all to the recycling bins, I actually sat in the middle of it all & felt quite sick yesterday.  I guess its become a worry as I am clearing out Margaret's stash which is neatly folded into bins & organised - I suddenly had a age 58 wake up call
So what do you think?  Should I dump it? or hoard it?  I would really welcome some comments please
I am much too ashamed to post any photos
I am not dumping my patchwork stash or my embroidery stuff....oh yeah there is heaps more & the loft............ ahhhhhhhhhhhh  anyone fancy a house guest for a week or two maybe the life laundry will come in and sort it all for me.....:-)

  1. I've got oodles and oodles of stuff in my studio too. Once a year, I purge and donate to the local art center for children.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and your sweet comment.

    Have a wonderful week.


Thank you for your comment, regards Shelagh
