When you have almost finished a pattern and start thinking about the next one to stitch, how do you select it? Who says I wait until I have almost finished a pattern before I start thinking about the next one to stitch--or hell, even just picking up and stitching it? I don't do things in order. I do what I feel like doing.
Because the main part of my stitching stash lives in storage, I have only recent purchases and projects that I have a lot of desire to stitch at my fingertips. Just recently, I went through what I have accumulated since February and made two piles: stuff that can stay and stuff that's being relegated to the storage unit. I'm going to try to hold off starting anything new before Christmas--unless I actually have all my Christmas presents ready in time. Famous last words.
