Not only an entirely new decade, but also the grande clear out of January 2020! Are you ready?
Just as a reminder, throughout the month of January I will be doing (and sharing...gulp!) my efforts at getting rid of excess 'stuff' from our abode here at Chez Magpie. At minimum I plan to get rid of 5 things each day throughout the month, but most days there will be way more than that! I will be sharing photos of my progress...but I won't subject you to daily posts and instead will be sticking to my normal schedule of posting three times each week. I will, however, try to show you my daily progress in those posts, along with my usual dose of mumblings, shares, and links. If you'd like to play along, let me know and I will try to figure out how to do a link up here on my blog so others can be inspired as well.
So....here goes.....for January 1......
There are five photos here representing WAY (!) more than 5 things. I have plastic 3 drawer units in my sewing room closet that were chuck right full of fodder for making crazy quilts - all sorted according to colors - to the point where the drawers were refusing to close. These piles (which, I might add, are MUCH larger than they seem!) represent the culling of 10 drawers. And, wonder of wonders, the drawers close!! You may click to embiggen if you dare!
- THIS is a rather nice bag pattern/tutorial.
- For those readers who live in Canada, perhaps you might find THIS site of interest. Lots of information!

- THIS tutorial on how to make a solid base for your tote bags and purses might be handy.

Resident Chef and I would like to wish you and your most loved the very best in 2020...may your cup of happiness always be filled, your path always bright, your heart always light; and your troubles be small. Happy New Year!
