As usual, October sucks me in. It is gone! Just like that. How does it happen I wonder?
School conference day.
Long weekend for teacher conferences.
A few birthday parties to throw or attend.
Halloween costume preparation.
I did eliminate a lot of items. Hundreds of pieces of paper. 5 bags full to the brim of clothing. A large garbage bag of magazines and old newspapers. A box full of beads. And 600 emails.
I can’t show you the emails, or I’d have to kill you.
I feel pretty well satisfied that I have deleted 990 Items from my life this past month. And pretty well satisfied that I have pared my closet down with the spirit of P33 in mind. And pretty sure that I cannot live with only 33 items of clothing to choose from for 3 months. And I am OK with that.
I’ll still be purging. There is plenty of junk in my house to purge.
But my real next project is SWAP (Sewing With A Plan) 2015. The rules are up over at Stitcher’s Guild, and I am pretty psyched! 5 tops, 3 bottoms, 3 wild cards, including at least one up/recycled item. One item can be purchased, one already sewn, and one (I think?) can be started and completed before SWAP. (This last rule always confuses me for some reason.)
I am going to use my purple and green sweater mashup as a starting point, and will include my black Style Arc Barb pants as my already completed and partially completed items. If I need to I will include my skinny jeans from the last SWAP, but I’d rather stitch up another pair of Barbs, as I really need some work pants. I have tons of options here! Maybe too many, my head is spinning as I type.
Very excited! Off to plan.
