Seven Things Spring/ Summer Week 22

In:

* 4 magazines
* 1 CD
* 1 cup and saucer, 2 tea towels, 2 packets of post it notes, 1 notebook & 8 magnets from my Swap-Bot partner.
* 1 pair black knitting needles.
* 2 lots of fabric.

Total In this week: 22

Out:

* 9 items to my Black & White Swap partner (she says being all mysterious)
* Charles Rennie Mackintosh earring set and necklace: given to Diva, an eBay buyer who came to pick up an order and talk modern dollshouses and architecture with me. She's got the Dolls House Emporium Mackintosh House so these will be well used by her as drawer pulls and wall art.
* 1 wooden dolls house cupboard: given to Janet.
* 2 NRMA Open Road mags: recycled.

* 9 oldish copies of Madison, marie claire, US Elle & US Vogue: donated to Happy Spider.
* 2 nightshirts (I realised I hate wearing nightshirts as they almost always end up tangled up round my waist somewhere), 1 knitting pattern (which I bought for Taph and she already had), 2 sewing patterns (which I'll never use), 2 bookmarks (ditto), 1 white short sleeved shirt (with far too much polyester for comfort - originally bought to wear over togs on the way to the pool. The pool I've been to once in about 5 years), 1 pair of shoes, 3 tea towels, 2 summer tops (which I realised I'll always pass up in favour of something else), 1 Crossroads envirobag (yes, I occassionally buy really cheap and nasty clothing but do I want to tell the world on a regular basis? Especially when my black and white envirobag collection has a number of much nicer bags in it?): Smith Family
* 1 old oil burner from my office when I used to work away from home. (It was $2. It's covered in gunge. If I ever work away from home again and need an oil burner I'd probably just take my spare Bloom one...): bin
* 1 set stitch markers: birthday present for Happy Spider.

Total Out this week: 40

Shake-it-all-about:

* 1 set of stitch markers.

Net items out so far during Seven Things Spring: 347.5
