Out with the Old and In with the New!

I thought I would let you see the only surviving decorated cookies of the day!  It is a good thing I got this picture, because just hours later they too were history!
As per my yarnbarn wish list, I got some weaving play toys for Christmas.  How did they know!?

My plan for this week and the next was to go thru every cabinet, every drawer and every closet to clear out what I am not using or loving.  I have started in the kitchen and am almost to the end of it.  Just the main food pantry and the big freezer remain.  I have found lots of stuff that will be going to the goodwill, but also many things that I didn't even remember I had! 

I had hoped to finish at least 2 rooms this week, but I had no idea that one of my Christmas presents was a new barn!  So this week along with my decluttering, "we" have taken down the old "leany over" barn pictured  here, and sorted out what we could reuse, and  "I" have managed the burn pile and saved a bunch of stuff from it for our neighbor, who loves to have stuff around.

I will be posting later today on Farmstead Studio the before pictures and some progress pictures.  Needless to say there has been NO weaving, and I doubt seriously if there will be any in the next few weeks.  If I manage to sneek some in I will let you know.  I know there are several pieces I really do need to get done, but they will have to wait.

I doubt that I will see the New Year in tonight, but after a long day building walls, we will probably be sawing logs.  But If you do manage to stay up to see it in I hope you can greet it with joy!

Until next time, Happy Weaving or whatever it is you are up to, Tina

Those cookies make me think of certain spiders in which the females are quite large and the males quite small (and courteous.) And I know a little girl who drew a picture of herself as a princess, with the prince beside her, just about as tiny. This amuses me no end.

Congratulations on the delivery of a brand new barn! Woohoo!

And hooray for sorting and purging! You're a better woman than I am.

I will also be sawing logs tonight. Glad you go a new barn. Have fun building it. Happy New Year.
