THEN, I glanced at the old Christmas Popcorn Tin I'd been using for my trash. I know, I know, classy.
So I just kept spraying...
FINALLY, I was ready to move into the room. That seems like a simple thing until you know that I had FOUR big tubs of things such as quilt squares, jewelry parts, patterns, old clothes that may become quilts, and lots of things difficult to identify. Much of this was from my Grandma Rose's home and I needed to sort and organize.
Grandma Rose died just before Christmas. She was the original Wyoming Rose. She did everything crafty and saved left-over bits and parts for potential future use. She also seemed to have the same problem as me, starting a new project before finishing the previous one. This results in a lot of half-completed treasures! When her house was cleaned out and things were being taken to thrift stores, craft things were saved for me and my cousin, Diahann, to add to our own craft supplies. I was a bit overwhelmed by the bulk of all this but it is so precious to me. I opened one tub and the smell of Grandma's house come poofing up to my face. I just stood there weeping. I miss her so much!
I never did completely clean out our hallway before I crashed into bed. Luckily, DFS hasn't shown up but rather than risk it, I'd better finish up the job.
I'll show the final pictures of the room soon!
