The scary thing about spending 30 minutes a day organizing the craft room is that I am getting an accurate count of the patterns that I have. I have created a database, so that I can keep track. I know which patterns feature sheep, and I can still pull everything by designer. I should so be a librarian. (One in the family, well, I'd say is enough, but I know too many librarians read this.)
Anyway, this weekend, the pattern count went over 300. If I never bought another pattern, I could stitch for twelve years. And I have Heart's Content kits and Sandy Cozzolino Santa kits still to add.
I think I'm going to have to part with some. Otherwise, I'll never be able to justify buying another pattern. OTOH, I don't want to part with some of the ones that I stitched that I kept notes on. The Wee Chicken by Heart in Hand on which I wrote the start date and finish date and "for mom." First, no one wants the Trilogy patterns I've stitched and, bored, traced the star, bird, and heart that grace all their patterns. And second, I might need it. Oh, let's face it. I am never going to stitch Homespun Elegance's Folk Art I. But I've seen how little I buy stuff for on ebay. And I don't want to sell it for that little. My ebay threshhold is $4. I don't ship anything out for less than that.
Maybe I should just open a shop.
