The book that I am is currently reading is causing a frenzied cleaning revolution in my life and sparking joy by replacing clutter with peace and calm. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo details the Japanese art of removing excess from one's life as practiced by the author. I'm all in; the KonMarie philosophy is one I can adopt, it's life changing and transformative. I've done this before, but this particular method resonates with me personally. “All hail the new decluttering queen Marie Kondo, whose mess-busting bestseller has prompted a craze for tidying in homes across the world … one proper clear out is all you need for the rest of your life.” – Wish me luck, I've only just begun.
And, to that end, I am culling some vintage quilting books from the shelves of The Strawberry Patch. I am parting with these (there will be more to come) right now, they're free to anyone who would like them; all I am asking is that you pay the postage if shipping is required. The titles are: Quilts for Summer Days by Jan Patek,
Houses, Cottages and Cabins by Nancy J. Martin, Calendar Quilts by Joan Hanson, Easy Paper Pieced Keepsake Quilts by Carol Doak, All Things Noah by Debbie Mumm, Baskets and Bumblebees by Barbara Brandenburg, More... Texture With Textiles by Linda F. McGehee, A Walk Through The Garden by Piecemakers and Winter Whimsies by Suellen Cochrane Wassem. There's also a circa 1989 Old-Fashioned Patchwork magazine that must have missed the great magazine discard day a few years ago! See one you'd like? Speak up, it's yours, but they'll be gone soon.
Life Is Good!
* Note: Book titles that have been struck through are now spoken for. Yay!
