My body is doing that full-spectrum, hurty-spasm thing and it feels like an ironing board. Seriously, just did an hour of yoga and I could barely move myself into actions that I normally take for granted. It's bizarre. It used to demoralize me but now that I have some idea of what's causing this, I can tolerate it. And I know when and how to apply the Advil.
Anyway, not up to much typing but I do need to tell you this:
Many of my de-stash fabrics have been sent off to good homes today. All that I offered up on the Stash Diet Swap page were claimed in a flash, happily, with the exception of two. Those two were small yardages and grey. Perhaps that combo isn't exciting.
At any rate, when they were still available this morning, I was surprised. I mean, they're lovely fabrics or I never would have bought them! They're in a neutral colour. They're each big enough to make a top, albeit not an involved one. I imagined the tops I could make with each - how I could use the Tencel as a contrast fabric for another yardage of the same Tencel I have in a different colourway.
And then it occurred to me. It's my freakin' fabric. I mean, no one had yet claimed it so, this morning, I simply deleted the photos from the group and reabsorbed each yardage into my stash.
And now I feel oddly guilty. Not about keeping my fabrics. I mean, I'm on a whole new creative track, what with having cataloged everything! But about showing them off and then removing them.
At any rate, I apologize if you were about to message me to ask about them, even though I sense you probably weren't. In the meanwhile, I'll be planning out some kind of sleeveless peplum or a dress with contrast neckline...
Almost giving stuff away is so illuminating.
