Every once in a while, I get fed up with the clutter and conduct a purge in the sewing room. Most often I purge patterns; sometimes I purge books. Purging patterns isn't a big problem. I use lots of Burda Style Magazine Patterns and if I absolutely have to, I can always retrace patterns hastily purged. Purging books is another matter. Mistakes are not so easy to fix. I got rid of several books a few years ago and I lived to regret it. Gwen warned me, but I didn't listen.
Wouldn't you know, I needed one of the books I so foolishly tossed aside in 2009. Gwen is entitled to a big, fat "I told you so!"
Did I buy a replacement? I plead nolo contendere. An observant reader will notice the photo above was taken in my own sewing room. Please, don't let me purge again. Friends don't let friends purge sewing books.
