I realized something this past weekend while I was straightening out and organizing my STASH, I've got a problem!
So I decided to make a few New Year's resolutions, which I wanted to share with you, dear friend, but I thought I would do it in a fun way, using our stitching acronyms....at this wonderful link... Debi's Cross Stitch/acronyms.
So, here goes:
I decided to clean out our spare bedroom, which is basically a "catch all" for anything and everything that doesn't have a designated spot in our house. This, of course, included most of my STASH. I keep my floss organized in bins, which stay safe in a chest in the living room, but the rest of my STASH I keep in the spare room, tidy but unorganized.
I decided that I would first organize everything into areas on the floor, canvas, tools, and the like. I began with my WIPs and WISPs, and then moved on to my UFO's, which looked at me with sadness and accusation (not really, it just felt that way) and the guilt set in, as I asked myself "Why didn't I finish them?" It just seems so much easier to start a new WIP than to continue on with a WISP that isn't cooperating (you know the type). I moved on to the rest of my STASH, and "Whoa Nelly!" I realized that I have been overdoing the S.E.X. and it is time to stop, as there is no need to buy so much, and hang onto STASH instead of using it. You see, I don't have an LNS, so I am forced to buy my needed supplies online, and in doing so I always have this fear of running out of a needed item in the middle of a project, so I tend to buy two when I really only need one, and then I hang onto it, afraid to use it up. Not a big deal when you are buying floss, but not a good idea when it's other things such as canvas. This is how a self-respecting lady on a budget will easily become an out of control S.E.X. addict.
So, as I worked diligently through the day, it became very obvious to me that I have been a PRUDE, and it was high time to implement a StRIP, or else I would end up a lonely old lady with no room for anything but her SABLE. I decided to join a few more SAL's and begin another WIP, and made a promise to myself that from this point on, even if my canvas becomes uncooperative, I will not stop until I finish, even if FROGGING occurs more than stitching and my mantra becomes "rip it-rip it," and even when my ORT cup overflows, and even if I have to make a WIP into a WISP, I will finish what I start and use up what I have. No more UFO's in this girl's life, nor being a PRUDE who refuses to StRIP, and the S.E.X. stops here.
With this in mind I am now ON THE WAGON and doing my own version of the HD!
Sorry my online LNS owners, but for now, I bid you "adieu."
