A Basket of Memories and Spring Cleaning

I have been making some progress with Basket of Memories. I have also decided when I take my mini vacation starting this coming Tuesday, I am going to have a different type of project to work on. I am going to be organizing my stash and organizing WIPs and UFOs. Lists will be made and everything is going to be cataloged and recorded. I have already begun the process, and I am starting to feel better about things already. I need to get some labels for my bins, as things as just scattered willy nilly and this will just simply not do. It took me forever to find something the other day and really, I could use the time to be stitching! I've also taken the time to go through bookmarks on my computer that I no longer go to and to even trim down the amount of time I am spending on Facebook and message boards. I'm not quite ready to fully eschew the internet altogether as some folks I know of, however, I do understand about wanting to spend more time participating in life rather than just reading about other people doing just that! :)



At any rate, here is what I have so far on Basket of Memories:




Design: Basket of Memories - Reward of Merit Pincushion


Designer: Barb Adams for Blackbird Designs


Fabric: 30 count linen by Wichelt Imports in Ivory (DMC equivalent to 712)


Fiber: Simply Shaker thread by Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Aged Pewter







I need to bolt for now. Gotta finish getting ready for work and all. No bees, no honey...no work no money! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :)
