Not much sewing -

Lately -

With my Spring Cleaning using the KonMaxi method -

Not to be confused with the KonMari method - LOL -

But I did play with the borders for the GREEN top -

And tore the strips that I need - ;))

I like to tear long border strips length-wise if possible -

It's faster and more accurate than trying to cut really long strips -

And this one worked out well -

I needed 60" lengths and had two yards of this Green -

So I was able to tear my 4 border strips -

And have a nice chunk left over that I can use on the back -

When I get that far - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Spring Cleaning -

I've been doing a little Spring Cleaning -

But - just so you know -

My version of Spring Cleaning -

Is sorting through stuff -

And shredding some old files - ;))

I am NOT into the "Marie Kondo" thing -

Side note - BOB thinks it's funny that people have just discovered it now that it has been on Netflix - when her book has been out for years - LOL - ;))

Anyway -

I'm much more into another method described by
Hannah Martin in her article -

A Maximalist's Response to Marie Kondo's Minimalist Mandate
Architectural Digest - January 29, 2019 -

Her article is terrific -

Especially the last part -
Emphasis added by me -
Those big piles of garbage might add to the before-and-after, reality show appeal, but so much of Marie's approach goes beyond purging: it's about appreciating your objects and living with things you love. Perhaps the lesson for maximalists is this: take your possessions, hold them in your hands, thank them for all they've done for you and then put them right back on the shelf where they belong.

I call it the KonMaxi method.

Hannah is a lady after my own heart -

I think we could be friends - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
