I am in a Minimalists kind of phase at the moment. 😉 I don’t know about you, but as much I like collecting, I also really like decluttering and minimizing my possessions. I guess it has something to do with me moving so many times. I look at things a little different because I also know how difficult they are to move with, which makes you question if the stuff is worth its weight. 😉 Another thing triggering this was probably starting my packing list for my bike adventure and noticing how little it is you really need.
Anyway, I already got through my other rooms and I finally get to tackle my “hobby room”. I have to admit, I never got that far in my previous decluttering phases… so it is kind of bad.
Don’t think too badly of me when showing you my before pictures:
So the only way you get it all and keep it organized is to start in one corner and mover around the room. So this is what I did and started with this:
sadly I forgot to take a before picture, as you might imagine there was no free space.
those are UFOs I haven’t looked at for over 3 years, so I got rid of the most, and only kept 2 I really still would like to finish
oh, so much space 🙂 what to fill it with?
maybe my test-prints from Spoonflower which I have to do for every new design?
Guess what? That was a wonderful idea because while putting it orderly in its new place I found this:
What I had all forgotten about, but is so great, because one of my potholders looks like this:
and now I can replace it without any troubles. 🙂
I’ll keep you updated, how my cleaning/minimizing/decluttering will go. Let’s see what else I can find.
So one question remains: Is this about textiles or an adventure?
keep sewing, exploring and smiling

that…is a lot of work—that’ll pay big dividends in the future! ❤
in my experience its never as much work as it looks like at first 😉 but yeah it will be great when finished
