|My old stash storage|
|My new stash storage|
I haven’t been doing much stitching this week because I have had the urge to find a new way to store my stash to get ready to move in about 12 months. I know that seems like a while but believe me I started counting at 32 months and it seems like it was only yesterday. I am also a procrastinator so now seemed like a good time to really start. And yes I know I am still buying samplers on EBay but I am also going to be getting rid of the patterns/chart books that I have out grown. I am putting the keeper patterns in heavy duty sheet protectors and than into 3 inch 3 ring binders instead of just having them stored in a storage tub. Once I have everything in binders I can put it into some kind of order but for now its fun to flip through the binder to see all the patterns and magazines I am keeping. I found a lot of patterns I had forgotten I had and many I wonder where my mind was when I got brought them.
I also found a few patterns that I brought years ago that yes you guessed it I bought another copy of from EBay in the last few months. Gee guess my tastes haven’t changed that much in the last ohhhhhh thirty five years.
I did pull out an old bell pull by Marilyn Leavitt called Family Treasure III. It’s a little over half done and I put a few more stitches in it on Thursday night as my UFO of the week. :-) I would like to get this one and my Noah’s Needle by Just Nan completed sometime this year. Of course something else is going to wait and I will mostly change my mind what I want to work on next week but for now that's my story and I am sticking to it.
Happy Stitching everyone
