Terri and I don't always blog about books and today is one of those times for me. Instead I want to say that
I now have my cross stitch stash organized. I know what patterns I have and in what themes they are, my kits are organized, my kitted up projects are organzied and my floss, magazines and fabby are organized. This is the first time
in two years that I can honestly say that happened and here is what I am over the top on and what I am lacking.
I am over the top on floral (no more floral patterns)
I have plenty of (Angel Patterns) no more angel patterns.
I have plenty of Christmas Patterns that have to do with the outdoors and houses.
I do have a lot of Gingerbread Patterns (But I have stitched at least half of those), which is a good thing!
I have several Coffee Patterns and a few Tea Patterns ( I really need to finish some of the ones I've started), and now I can find them.
I have several large Halloween Patterns (which of course makes me happy as it's my favorite holiday.
I have plenty of snowman patterns ( I do not actually need anymore snowman patterns) which is good to know.
I have several Santa Patterns (but I need to purchase two more in the same size that I need for the sampler I am working on) and so now I know which is a good thing.
I have several kits and while I might change out the floss or fabby for the kits it's good to know what I do and don't have in this area.
What I am lacking is small Halloween Patterns, fabby and floss.
I am also over the top on baby patterns, kids patterns, sports patterns, hand towels and stamped items such as baby blankets etc...
I don't have many patterns that are Valentine's Day related which is good because I don't care for that holiday and I only have one or two St. Patrick's Day Pattern (which is fine with me)
I own two HAED Patterns both were gifts.
I find that other than holiday and floral patterns I really don't have much else in my stash but I do have a few things like crate label patterns, bear patterns and a few lighthouse patterns.
I'm thrilled to know all of this because now I truly know I seem to shop for the same themes over and over which of course means I need to maybe branch out a little from my comfort zone. LOLOL have no idea what else interests me but at least I know what I do and don't need.
Okay stitchers tell us what you lack and what you need, when was the last time you organized your cross stitch stash? What you like to cross stitch and what you like to design if you're a designer?
Believe it or not all of this was very enlightening to me last night. I am very glad I took the time to organizie my stash.
What a beautiful morning!
