Tuesday felt like fall. Drizzly…cool…overcast… Oh, Fall! I’m ready. Its my favorite time of year. There is so much going on around here, yet somehow the thought of having a new routine to get us on a formal track is not coming a minute too soon.
I was looking at my closet today and thinking I really need to clean it out. Well, I did clean it out, actually. I got rid of a ton of stuff, but now I need to organize it. Yes, the sweaters are folded, but nothing else is. Good intentions, but organizing closets is not at the top of my list, so I’m always happy when I look in there and see things like those little sacks of dried lavender I put between the sweaters back in the Spring (like the one sitting on the green sweater, far left). See? I have good intentions. Those fabric boxes have been so great to keep my overabundance of scarves and bandanas organized. The one on the far left was made by Dacia, and the other two were made by Melissa, who will also be teaching a class at Portland’s Bolt on how to make them. I wish I could take it. Its so fun to sit and sew with a group of women.
So, there you have it. Why I craft. And why I blog. I look in my closet and, upon closer inspection, don’t see a mess at all, I see pretty fabric boxes made by friends, with scarves from friends hanging out of them.
