I am busy doing the finishing preparations for participating in a local consignment sale this week (timed to coincide with Earth Day!). I regularly sort through clothing, making stacks to give, donate, sell, and keep, and then the boxes of “sell” clothes help pay for the next season’s necessities. I usually volunteer to help at consignment sales, for a greater return on our sales and sometimes an opportunity for early/discount shopping, if needed. (If you’re local, stop by for some bargain deals, and introduce yourself!)
A friend is getting married in a couple weeks, so I also have a bridal shower to attend (and a gift to sew and bread loaves to bake!). I’m looking forward to spending time with old friends, and getting back to my sewing machine! We also have some new friends coming into town for a visit, and I will be preparing for a barbecue at our home with them.
(Oh… and I have a few loads of laundry to fold and pictures to hang on the walls!) I’ll be popping online occasionally during the week, so feel free to leave your notes/e-mails. I hope to get back to more regular posting in the next week or so!
