Hi All- Boy the week just flew by. Whew! What a week! It's been a big one for me professionally, off this blog. I am officially a scrum master. For those not familiar with Agile Software development it really means project manager team lead but there's a bit more to it. It's just more time, more stress, same pay so what can I say. Not a huge deal but a neat thing to put on my resume. :)
I spent my few minutes of free time sewing a cute little kimono top for Abby. You can find the free pattern here.
I struggled as I always do to create bias tape. For some reason those fancy little tape makers always leave me frustrated and with uneven tape. Then I started googling and found this amazing little tutorial. So smart! Can't believe I never thought of it!So now I'm considering just donating all my bias tape makers (a great 3 item start to tomorrow's pick 5) :)
Other than that, I just got back from Salvation Army dropping off my car load of pick 5 decluttering from last week and this week. Check out Beth's awesome garage decluttering make-over here. Wow! Great job decluttering Beth!
Some things I've decluttered this week include -
- 2 electronic computer mice from the USB/Corded old-school. I upgraded to a shiny new one with a slickdeal from Best Buy.
- 2 Bags of clothes (one from me, one from hubby)
- Box of fabric
- Bag of fabric scraps
- Rotary Cutter Mat (I had 3 but only used the large one and the small one so I got rid of the medium sized one. I think I might be able to get rid of the small one soon)
- Box of sewing notions (misc binding tape, thread, batting, etc)
- Box of baby toys (the electronic ones Abby didn't like)
- 3 purses
- 1 pair shoes
- 2 jackets
- 5 towels
- 2 sets of sheets
- 3 picture frames
- a box of books
- curtain hanging supplies with rod/hooks
- 1 box misc tools
- 1 suitcase
- 1 box of misc office supplies (paper/ink/tape/etc)
- small rolling cart
Phew! That's it for this week - that filled my car to the brim. What are you decluttering this weekend?
