Day 376

Today was an #mqgsewday, where members of the MQG share whatever they’re sewing on Instagram. Watching kids does not make for easy sewing so I went for the tidying of sewing supplies. I have a bin of random craft/sewing/art stuff in the garage and a sort of similar bin downstairs. Husband has been agitating for paring down so with not being able to sew,  I tried to see exactly what I have.

Drafting tools and supplies, drawing and art supplies, three sizes of pipe cleaner including actual cleaners for pipes, old phone wire, beading wire, random: patches, snaps, and embroidery hoops, a third tracing wheel (never opened), two different styles of reverse tweezers, wool felt of three kinds, acrylic felt of two kinds, calculator from grade eight, school box from grade six, lighting gel sample book from university, wooden spool collection, random zippers (mostly huge, separating and/or ugly colours), car seat strap webbing from B’s car seat, styrofoam balls leftover from a hallowe’en costume three years ago, etc, etc.

Ta-done! One empty bin. Ran out of label tape at the crucial moment though.

Found some thing I’ll never use:

A close up for my fellow Canadians!

I went to university with a girl from St. Marys.

And I found a 6 inch scrap of honest to goodness gold braid. Woven with metal wires, and I have no idea where it came from.
