I feel like such an idiot.

I spent some time today reviewing my stash.  I mostly do cross stitch and needlepoint, so most of my stash consists of embroidery floss, patterns, linen and aida cloth, and various UFOs.  I also knit, so I have a few balls of yarn lying about, as well as some knitting patterns (and even a couple of crochet patterns, even though I can't crochet to save my life).

What did I find amidst my stash?

- No fewer than three needlepoint items, all complete but in need of blocking and either framing or being made into pillows.
- A needlepoint UFO that just needs to have the background filled in.
- A cross stitch sampler that is so old that the initials on it reflect my maiden name (I've been married 7.5 years, and IIRC, I did the sampler before I even met my husband nearly 11 years ago).

I'm so ashamed.  I had these beautiful finished and near-finished items lying around amidst piles of floss and yarn.  I think I have some finishing work ahead of me...  Undecided

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I've got it!  My husband has "forbidden" me to add to my stash until I start finishing some projects.  (Not that he could stop me.  In fact, I ordered some yarn online the other day... c'mon already, UPS!!!)  I'm going to present these as "new" FOs, and go hit the craft stores...  Cool
