My goal for January was to brutally declutter my home. I have been doing fairly well in being honest with myself. Am I going to use this or is it just sitting here taking up space? I had a lot of dinnerware...you would think I cooked all the time and had parties like Martha Stewart. Now that we are empty nesters and our children are raising families of their own, my entertaining has certainly changed. My children do not want these things so they are going to a thrift shop here in Priceville. The proceeds from the sales goes to missions so it is a win win.
I am also trying to neaten up some areas. One is the armoire in my bedroom that holds a variety of things.
I did find some stitches that I had put away and promptly forgot they were in the armoire.
My January Cottage...
I have tidied my craft closet, organized my cross stitch charts and as I was doing this chore, I had a mail call.
I recently had a card from Robin in Virginia who is so kind to read my blog and to leave a comment.
I have been focusing on a finish with Rebecca Nurse this week and I hope to complete it this evening.
What to stitch next???I guess I better start on my Prairie Schooler for February. Since it features a ground hog I need to hop to it.
Another goal for the new year is to keep my home tidy and organized. What is the use of purging if you bring things back in? I must say that watching some of the cleaning videos on You Tube has inspired me to do a little bit every day. Making a list helps keep me on target. I will try to report my progress in this area as the year marches on.
