Spring Cleaning

I made the decision last night that I will be cleaning out some of my stash and selling what I will not ever get around to doing. I hate that I have to do this, but honestly, I have more than one person could ever stitch in a lifetime and it's not like I can't use the money. I will be going through stuff after breakfast some time this morning. My stitching area needs a cleaning out anyway.

Got some more done on 'Love Cats', however, I seem to have added another row somewhere. I double and triple checked everything, but the count is off at the bottom right hand side *somewhere*, and I have no clue how I did it, or where the mistake is. I will go back later on today and recheck everything. When I am off count on one color, I will go back and stitch another color to see if that will make the mistake 'pop'. Usually it does, so I am hoping it will work this time.

Progress pic:

A word about my beloved New Jersey Devils. After a four month absence due to an elbow injury during a game versus Atlanta, Martin Brodeur returned to the goalie position and the Devils beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-0. Way to go, Devils!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day out there in cyberspace. :)


Respectfully submitted,

Ooo, ooo, I use those same bins for my patterns too! All frickin' FOURTEEN of them stuffed full. I should de-stash too but I find I'm emotionally attached to all this crap. Sad, eh?

Hidden frogs suck. You can hear the little creeps chirping but can't pinpoint them. I hope you can track yours down!
