I am right in the middle of re-organising my quilting storage space. I have a big cupboard, half shelving, half hanging. I need to retain some hanging because that is the only place Dennis' coats can go. But most of the hanging is taken up with some suits and dresses I had tailor made in Bangkok at least 8 years ago if not a little longer They are in pristine condition, beautifully made to measure... the woman I was then! Some are of suiting material, most are of good quality Thai silk. They no longer fasten over my hips. I know that it is stupid to have them cluttering up this useful space.
So, do I
(a) Fold and store them in the attic and diet - on the basis that if my hips were that size once they should be again, then when I am thin move them to my wardrobe
(b) Give them to charity - on the basis that no one is fooled by the diet plan and I should stop selfishly hoarding them because someone night need a good suit.
(c) keep them downstairs but folded in in with the other fabric in the new boxes I am about to order on the basis that if my some miracle (a) happens I can wear them but if not I could cut them up and quilt with them.
(d) get real and just chop them all up now to quilt with on the basis that whilst that might seem like a criminal waste I did pay for them to start off with and might as well continue to get money's worth from them?
