While downstairs to do some laundry today; I saw a toppling over pile of stash (all bought this year) and decided I should do something about it.
In sitting down to actually sort and organize I learned three things:
1) I'm literally out of drawer space for charts
2) I have a lot of great stash (that lives neglected in my dark basement)
3) ohhh I want to start all of these! Lol.
So I sorted and made new (smaller) piles of charts. Put a few away that I could and looked at the five projects I'd 'set aside', presumably to stitch them.
Now, I haven't had much time to stitch lately and knew the last thing I needed was a start... But I figured I could pull colours...
So I chose "Witches Night Out" by Brenda Gervais.
In looking at the beautiful pattern I realized I had only two of the variegated threads needed. So it was time to play the "do I have a colour close game?"
Here's my (no where near close) colour selections:
But of course now I needed fabric... You can't really tell in the photo there is a slight grey marbling to the fabric. It's called Smokey Grey in 32ct (my sticky didn't say who did it). My first thought was "oh wow this fabric is perfect, but maybe too nice for this piece!".
Seriously?! What is wrong with me. This fabric is in my stash with no attached or planned project and it's perfect. I then thought "if I'm going to take time to stitch something then it's ALWAYS worth the best!"
At least I came to my senses!
Do you ever do that? Think to yourself that something (fabric, thread, etc) is too special or nice for a piece?
Do you use it anyway?
And that laundry I was supposed to do... Got 1 of 3 loads done in 3 hours... I'm going to call that a win. ;)
