As expected, I haven’t had a whole lot of crafting time over the last two weeks due to office rearrangement. I finished rearranging the furniture and I set up the new computer. I’m now sorting through all my files, throwing away as much as I can. This is step 3 of household organization using the method Marie Kondo describes in her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I read that book last September and have slowly been working my way through it. I had three file cabinets in my office. One was already empty of files, but being used for storage. The second was half storage and half files. The third is all files. I’d like to get two of them out of my office entirely, in order to make room for yarn and fiber storage. My yarn is currently in my bedroom. Some fiber is in the bedroom and some is in my office. I’d like all my fiber craft tools and materials to be in my office. I expect to have the office totally finished by the end of February! In addition to working on my office, I have been crafting three projects.
I don’t go to a lot of Fiber Events. As far as I know, there are only two (now three, but I’ll get to that) fiber events that take place near me: Distaff Days in early January and The Florida Fiber In in mid-September. I have not made it to Distaff Days yet because I’m often away for the holidays the first weekend of January. I have been to The Florida Fiber In twice. The third event is the Florida Sheep, Wool, and Herding Dog Festival, which is a new event, held for the third time this year. I have not been to that event before, because I did not learn about it until after the second time it was held.
This year is an exception to the few fiber events pattern. I am actually attending fiber events three weekends in a row. The Fiber Event in Greencastle, Indiana was the first, held April 18 & 19. Second is the Florida Sheep, Wool, and Herding Dog Festival held April 25-27. Third is Maryland Sheep and Wool on May 3 & 4.
