Blogging Hiatus??

I've heaps I want to write about, including about artist Clare Plug's exhibition "Look South" in Napier, but I have until next Sunday afternoon-ish to sort out my stash room, streamline my work flow and reorganize my studio at the other end of the house, besides finding all the bits and pieces spread out all over the house.

We had our bedroom carpeted yesterday, you see, and the bed is still in the living room, but the bedroom is right next to the stash room. So it makes sense to use the empty floor to spread out everything and reorganize. I've been hoping to do this since mid-2006-ish (?) so the task is a long time coming, but I've felt overwhelmed at the enormity and procrastinated. I needed a catalyst and this one is as good as any, I keep telling myself. Once I get started, (as in, once I stop drinking endless pots of tea and get off the computer), I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I've also been telling myself that.
This is my attempt at a 3-dimensional-in-my-mind map of where I remember putting my weaving- and art-related stuff since 2006-ish. Ben's going to put stuff on TradeMe (NZ version of eBay) if I decide to part with anything.

  1. Good luck Meg, I hope you do better than my chaotic attempts at getting organized. I'm at a standstill - I just spend hours moving stuff from one place to another and it seems to get worse by the day.

  2. I need all the luck and motivation for this... I did so very little today. And still, I keep finding weaving-related stuff in the rest of the house...

  3. This is hard work! But maybe you will find some nice things that you have forgot.

  4. I had a stash sort a few weeks ago, getting to the end of it felt good! I found some interesting stuff and realised why I don't need to buy any fibre for at least a couple of years (oops) Also, even without getting rid of anything it created lovely space.

    Hope this goes well for you.

  5. Oh, ladies, I KNOW I'm going to find things I hadn't thought of years. I'm afraid I can function well without buying anything new for... half a dozen years???

  6. Meg, do you honestly think that you won't actually buy anything for that period of time though?!

  7. Oh, heck, no. That's just in theory.
