Stash Check ... Oh My!!

I often frequent a forum ( to read and discuss stitchy stuff. One recent thread asked to see everyone's stash, just cause stash is fun to look at. I decided to lay out all of my stash this morning and take pictures. Oh my ... maybe I shouldn't have done that. I have WAY more stash than I thought, and the pictures below don't even include the 20-30 charts I have saved on my computer.

These are all of my kits:

I'd love to start/finish some of the really small ones so I could have some decorations for my apartment. They are so cute and really ... what woman doesn't like flowers once in a while?

These are some of my charts and the start of my magazine collection:

I'm just dying to stitch some of these charts, particularly the Alessandra Adelaide and Ink Circles ones. (As if I don't already have 5 projects on the go. Am I insane?)

And finally, my fabric and thread collection:
A lot of the thread is already sorted into boxes for particular projects I want to start, but my general collection grows frequently. The fabric I love. I don't have plans for most of it. I just couldn't resist buying such gorgeous pieces. One day I will find a use for it all!!

New Year's resolution: no more stash buying unless it's for a current WIP (work in progress). Let's see how long I can stick to it. (My bet is a week ... maybe less.)


  1. Ha! Great stash :) I find collecting the stash one of the best parts of any hobby!

  2. WOW! That is a great stash. I am very jealous!
