A more baffling (at least to me) loss was also discovered this week. Somehow, I have forgotten where I stored the plain cotton "summer" sheets for the girls. I don't think I gave them away, but I can't find them anywhere. I did find one set but I know I have a second. somewhere. In addition, I seem to have lost a fitted jersey style sheet. I took it off the bed, washed it, dried it, but then when I was folding it wasn't there. It is like the sock monster got really hungry and ate a sheet. I hate to put those away without it, but I am at a real loss. I mean my house isn't *that* cluttered (anymore). I think I'd notice something as large as a twin bed sheet lying on the floor.
Mostly though this week, I am still slogging through endless drawers of fabric. It seems every day my twitter is nearly the same "today I got rid of some fabric". And I am making headway, I have cleared out most a dresser drawer of scraps that heaven only knows why I was saving. I even found scraps from several baby quilts I made in 1998-2001. I know I kept those scraps so I could do repairs if needed, but those "babies" are all teenagers now and so out with (most of) them.
Funny how sometimes, you can feel like you aren't making any headway as you slog through the same task day after day, and sometimes, you can see real progress. Seeing that nearly empty drawer, I feel like progress has been made, even if most of the stuff from the drawer is sitting around the room in various piles and even though I have a huge blanket box that I'd like to incorporate into my current storage. For some reason, it just looks like even though I only get rid of the equivalent of about 1/2 yard to a yard every day, that I am really making a dent.
Maybe next week, I'll even post a picture.
In the meantime, follow me on Twitter, to see what goes every day.
