January 29 – Wired Ribbon

Jan 29


Today I’m giving away this unopened spool of wired craft or wrapping ribbon.

I like to make stuff.  I like to sew, embroider, knit, and make things with my hands.  I get it from my family, my Dad made furniture in his spare time, my many sisters knit, sew, do needlepoint, paint, print, collage…they do it all.  My brother is a master with tools, space, paint, and has become a self-taught immaculate renovator.

I have tended to acquire craft supplies in great splurges of activity, inspired by a new idea.  The project gets executed, maybe in a few versions, and then I run out of time or move on to the next idea.  This leaves me with bags and drawers full of bits and pieces from old projects.  I get some satisfaction by these odds and ends and have found opportunities to use some of them, but I am overflowing at the moment and need to cull the supplies or I’ll never get organized.  I don’t see us using this spool of ribbon I bought a few years ago at Costco.  The colours are pale green, yellow, and pale orange.  It might work for a spring project or Easter, but I’m focussed in a very different direction these days.  Also it’s quite wide, 1 1/2 ” and wired, so it will make a great bow, but is hard to use in a sewing project.

It’s going in the goodwill box and I’m going to practice buying supplies only when I know exactly what I’m going to do with them.


About todayigaveaway

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.
