However, with the scrutiny of August and this Final August Post, I will take the opportunity to mention a few other 2014 Finale's. Again, not major events in blogland, but significant and a point of reference for me...since CITexas Gal serves as a record of sorts.
I can hardly believe this happened, but it did and a chapter...no, a novel...in my life was closed with the closing of Sue's Quilting Services and the sell of QuiltALottie, my longarm quilting machine. I am amazed to say that after close to twenty years of being in the quilting business with it being such a major part of my everyday life, that 'All is Well'. I continue to downsize my 'Fabric Stash', and that too, is a 'Good Thing'.
When fireplace weather rolls around, I snuggle in with knitting and crochet, so the spring and summer was a good time to sort and send the 'OverDoneSue' yarn collection. Last winter I overdid the 'Shawl and Scarf' crocheting and spent the spring and summer in neck and shoulder rehab.
That bit of info is definitely a reminder to myself that even more downsizing of this Collection is needed. I tend to forget the negative side of over knitting/crocheting when the creative side is sitting by the fire.
On second thought...maybe this is enough downsizing...for now!
I mean, afterall, August is ending and Fall is in the air!
Before you know it...it will be Fireside Sitting time!
I will Not OverDo...I will Not OverDo...I will Not OverDo!
