Clearing the clutter
My son lent me a book about de-cluttering called Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui. It is helping me a great deal in the reduction of my excess weaving yarn and equipment. I didn’t realize how much stuff I had collected until I began to go through it more objectively. But I suppose after the long time I have been weaving this was bound to be. Reading this book has helped me in the realization that I cannot do everything I would like to – there just isn’t enough time! And so it then it is better to let stuff go to someone that can and will use it.
I can also see more clearly the direction I want to go in my weaving. Now that I don’t feel the pressure of having to use all the yarn I have I can concentrate and enjoy that part of weaving that really interest me. This process has helped give me a better focus.
When I began the exercise of sorting my stuff, I was still thinking that I “should’ keep this or that item and put it aside again. The process is taking a number of passes through it all as I de-stash. I am not finished yet, there is lots left to move along and I am beginning to enjoy this.
This beautiful stamp from Sweden shows a woman making bobbin lace. I had always thought I would try bobbin lace and had a book about it. But it never happened. The book now belongs to someone that will use it!
