Saturday morning Vince got the big idea that we would clean out the garage. That is not a one day job! And, it’s a job I want no part of! I don’t want to help . . I don’t even want to be in town when Vince does it. But, being the nice wife that I am, I helped for a while . . maybe 2 hours. My way of thinking is . . if you pick up something and can’t figure out what it is or what it goes with, toss it! Vince’s way of thinking is . . save it forever because some day you may be looking for it but in the unlikely event that happens, we can never find it. We remember that we saw it and we saved it and we look for days and then we go buy a new one anyway because we couldn’t find the old one. I’d much rather say “Oh heck! We saw it but we threw it out so let’s go buy a new one!” and not waste days looking for something we’ll never find.
As soon as Vince realized I was tossing things, he began going through the trash and that was the end of my helping with the garage.
I came in and started sewing and after a while, he came downstairs with a card of fabric samples he had found in the garage. Samples he loves!
Enlarge the picture! He wants a quilt out of just those fabrics .. nothing else! NO! Those are pretty fabrics but (1) they’re not my favorite and (2) they need something else with them .. not just a quilt out of those fabrics. So, Vince said “Fine! I’ll make my first very quilt out of these fabrics . . on my very own sewing machine!” And I’m thinking . . make darned sure you set your sewing room up in the pole barn because I am not sharing my sewing space! 🙂
