In fact, I said this:
But then just use it! Why do you need rules for that? That might actually make an interesting post. I am incapable of using the things I own because...And she said we should ask you what your self imposed rules are. Maybe you're a one-at-a-timer? Or you have to stitch a certain thing before you do anything else? Or you have to stitch some boring bit before you can move on to the good bits (if so, be specific). Maybe you have to backstitch as you go.
So what are your self imposed rules for stitching?
Me, I just let stash accumulate. I guess my thing is starting loads of projects in January. But since I have projects that took me ten years to finish, I think the truth of the matter is that I'm just not that worried about when I stitch something, just that I have something to stitch!
