I am a sick, sick woman.

I spent a good part of this afternoon inventorying my cross stitch kits.  I am convinced that I could get rid of a ton of them...yeah, nope.  I did put a number of them in a box to sell on ebay, but I  kept way more than I should.  There are some I am pretty sure I am never going to get around to stitch, but I just could not let them go.  I am sick, I tell ya.  I have been through almost all of my charts, and the list is long, but I did box a bunch  of them up for MB in October.  I am so looking  forward to finishing Peaceable so that I can feel a little freedom to stitch something else.  As far as Peaceable goes - I am making pretty good headway.  I am almost finished with the cross stitches, and most of the backstitching.  I am confident that I should be finished with the piece in March!!    What do you think?  Sorry the pictures look so dark!
 
Until next time, have a happy, healthy stitchy time!

Go Beth go!!!

Hun, we all have that same sickness. It's why we have stitching blogs and bulletin boards and huge closets/boxes/drawers full of stash.

We would start a 12-step program, but then we'd have to design a sampler around it.

btw, Peaceable looks great!

You're so close. I'm sure you'll be able to finish it soon. It's okay, Beth, I know how you feel :)

Hugs,
Veronica.

Beth we have the same problem. I look at my charts and think I should get rid of some. But then I think well I must have liked it at some time, therefore I might like it again and end up keeping everything. Karen's reply made me smile too. Great progress on Peaceable and you should be finished soon.

Love this piece. It's just so bright and fun. I wish you lots and lots of luck with finishing it.

I think all of us stitchers have the same illness, Beth :) Oh, well, we could have worse addictions, right?

Nice progress on Peaceable Kingdom--I see a finish coming very soon for you!!

All your stitchy friends are probably a little sick in this way - at least I am! Looks like a BIG March finish to me!

I think I've caught that same bug! Someone told me I have SABLE (Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy)!

PK looks great! It won't be long now.

I believe you can finish it this month. I also went through my stash and have a pile of charts to sell.

Yes for a March finish!! Cheering you on. :D

(It occurs to me that I should check your newer posts cos you might have finished it already since I'm late catching up with blogs....) :)
