Well that did not last !

After only 4 hours sleep I got up this morning with the head full of fungus again!! When will this ever end - I have had enough now!! Still I really must get on with homework.
Two questions (which I have asked on a couple of yahoo groups too)
Two questions:
i)What do textile artists use Golden Gel Medium for, where in UK can you get it and how much does it cost?
ii) When you de clutter your workspace what do you do with your stuff - throw it away, make something with it (like the scrap challenge)or give it away?
How good do I look? In my new trousers - mum you can chuck the old dark blue ones away now!

You can buy the Golden medium Gel from Art Van Go, you can download the catalogue. They will also tell you all about the products, speak to Viv or Kevin, Good luck

when I decluttered, I Freecycled the stuff that I thought was usable - you can find a local group via http://www.freecycle.org/. Some things, like sequins, ribbons, wrapping papers and felt went to our youth club for their craft sessions. And I threw the rest away.

Hi...I'm annie from the F&S group just finding your blog. So I'll give you two answers here. *S*

I have my first Gel Medium ever, and I'm using it most often so far to "glue" things down: fabric to fabric, paper to fabric, fabric to chipboard, etc. I want to do a project soon that would let me color it and use it for texture on the top of something.

When I declutter, I just put things away...*L* I never get rid of things. So far, I've not run out of storage, but I'm getting close.

I seldom get rid of things when I "de-clutter" -- its more a re-organization/tidy of stuff... That having been said, I have been known to make "care parcels" with useable pieces to gift to friends -- little surprises of "new to them" bits and bobs...

About de-cluttering Anna I have just finished doing mine recently and I had 10 garbage bags of rubbush nothing of any use and I tossed it out.
I had a pile of patchwork fabrics that I have had for a long time(don't do p/wk anymore)and I will sell it--I had a stack of odds and ends that I have donated to the recycle table at the Embroiderers Guild----
And I now have space in my sewing room to do some creating without all that clutter around me.
