Pretty productive weekend--hooray!

We've had a very productive weekend in the decluttering department.  Between Tim and I, we have:

-shipped off four boxes of porcelain figurines (a nativity set) to his niece
-took 4 big bags of clothes and stuff to Goodwill
-took a bunch of used electronics and styrofoam to the 'Transfer Station' (one of my favorite euphemisms)
-put seven bags for sale on Ebay (and one has already sold!)
-Tim did a lot of sorting in the garage

It feels good to do another round of getting rid of stuff.

I had time to work on another panel of Crown Wools:


Here is a close up of the hunk I did, it is lace and I messed up a lot but I'm ok with it.
I did a bunch of grading and also got a bunch of manuscripts processed on the journal I edit.

It was a lovely and sunny fall weekend and we were out enough in it to really enjoy it.

The shawl is progressing well!

Nicely done. All of it.

(You may get this comment twice. I tried to post . . . and blogger told me there was an error.)

Anyway.

I said something about it feeling great to clear stuff out. And then I think I mentioned that the hardest part, for me, is starting. ;-)

Downsizing and purging is a necessary task. I keep a donation box in the garage - that way items go in it as I find them, and I am constantly findilling it.

Love that the Nativity will stay in the family.
How do you put a BAG of stuff on eBay???? Or you are selling a bag as in a handbag?

Love your knitting - the colors are grand! Purging is so good to do - I've been at it for awhile, but slowed down. I need to pick up the pace again.
