My book shelves are overloaded and I've been stashing fabric for decades. I've been thinking about this for a while and I'm ready to release custody of some of this stuff.

My goal for the new year is to significantly lighten my stash. I've got wools, brocades, etc, that I just won't have time to use in this lifetime and/or my taste has changed. I have books for stuff I'm no longer interested in and I just don't want to store it anymore. I'm even ready to get rid of the 4-harness loom and the weaving supplies. (Won't F get excited when there's more space in the garage for his stuff. heh.)

I even have an extensive tea cup collection I'm going to cull, but I may try to do that on Craiglist or E-bay.

And what do I have in all those kitchen cupboards anyway? Too much stuff.
And what about all that childhood stuff I've been packing around? the kids don't want it and I was supposedly saving it for them. The housecleaning fairies have been sucking that up nicely.

It feels like the right thing to do and I've been thinking about it for almost a year. I want to lighten my load. I think I will be able to breath easier if there's less stuff taking up my air. And I will feel better that the stashed fabric and unused books, etc, will go to people who will love it.

Besides, if I'm ever going to pursue the fantasy of becoming a gypsy triathlete/fiber teacher living out of a streamline and rolling around the country, I need to lighten my load, right?
