It is a long hard slog but I am still dismantling my crafting life and selling/getting rid of things that no longer bring me joy. Today I boxed up a lovely selection of yarn to sell on eBay and a smaller lot of cotton yarn (for making the dishcloths that I planned to make and never did.) I hope that someone appreciates the yarn - especially the golden yellow yarn that I had planned to use in making dolls hair. So many plans unfulfilled.
Now I am down to a partially made scarf and the wool to finish it and then I have no more yarn left in the house. I have already sold most of my fabric.
I have made a start on de-cluttering my linen cupboard, wardrobe and drawers. It is liberating but a little upsetting too as I cast off the old me and my old ways. Collectable dolls have been a hard wrench to sell. My doll collection has cost £100's over the years and now they are virtually worthless. The second hand market is saturated with them. I wish I had invested in experiences rather than 'things'.
This isn't meant to be a depressing post, it is just a reflection on letting go of dreams that perhaps weren't really my dreams at all.
I am looking forward to a fresh new perspective on life without all the clutter dragging me down. Until then I will continue to streamline my 'stuff'!
By the way, a little thank you is well overdue to those of you who take the time to comment. I know there isn't really anything to comment on a lot of the time, but to know you are there gives me the incentive to get things done.
