Another full moon checkin post. Measi’s discussion question for this month is “how do you keep your stash organized?” I have a multi-layered process: my threads are all mounted on DMC stitchbows and kept in two big 3-ring binders. I also have a tabletop craft organizer with 3 drawers that sits on the bookshelf. The top drawer has packages of aida and linen; the second drawer is tools – hoops, scissors, needles, pins, etc.; third drawer contains patterns, small kits, beads, and empty stitchbows. I keep a bunch of pdfs of patterns that I keep on my computer – I’ll print them off as needed. I actually don’t keep a huge stash, mainly because I don’t have a lot of room.
The past month I was able to make some progress – the Fire Fighter sampler is *this* close to being finished. There was enough of the “border” red to finish both the border and the fire extinguisher that I started in the wrong shade. So one more square to fill in, and then I can get the framing process started.
I was also able to finish the owl bib for my friend, but I forgot to take a photo afterwards! I decided not to start the second bib for friend #2 – I’ll try for it next month before her baby is born, but I just didn’t have the energy to push through it in the two weeks I had between the showers.
Speaking of baby, I’m still *very* pregnant – induction is scheduled for Monday if baby doesn’t arrive on his/her own before then. Five days left!
