I have come to a very realistic decision.....I have too much stash and I'm not buying anymore. Now let me define that. I've decided to put myself on a diet.....a diet of anything that has to do with needlework. The only thing I am allowing myself to purchase is DMC floss because sometimes you just need a skein or two to finish something and that would be defeating the purpose of this decision.
I went into my sewing room this morning and looked at all of the knitting yarn I have and was very discouraged. I knew in my heart that if I knitted from now to the day I die, I would never use up all this yarn and the same goes with my cross stitch.
My diet shall last 2 months this time. During those 2 months, I'm going to be going thru my stash and picking out only what I know I will stitch. I have just about all of The Drawn Thread and Just Nan patterns (many which are out of print) and I know I'll never stitch them so why keep them. Another one I've collected over the years is Cross Eyed Cricket. I could probably count on my fingers how many of these I've stitched. Why keep them?????
At the end of these two months, you will find quite a long list on the blog Never Enough Stash and alot will just be given away. So wish me luck and if you care to join in, please post your name and maybe we can make this into a contest of sorts. So here it is August 22 and I promise myself I won't purchase anything before October 22.
Blessings as always,
