Two Days Later

I started stitching in 1985 so this pile represents 30+ years of WIPs. There's a birth sampler I never finished for my son who will be 27 this month, an SB from the 90s that only needs the beads and buttons sewn on, a house warming present for someone who has since moved from said house, fall projects I stopped working on when PS Santas called to me, winter projects that got set aside when the weather started warming up, BAPs I lost interest in, Mania starts and stitch-a-longs and the list goes on and on.

Now comes the fun part! I get to go through this mess and decide what I might still like to finish and get it all organized. I'll need to find missing threads I've pilfered for other projects and get things kitted up again. I'll make a list or two and order what I need and hopefully come out the other side with my sanity intact!

Good for you sorting these. I hope good memories come while sorting and starting to stitch them again. I too have some of this to do so not on your own :) Sometime the threads seem to hide!! Happy Stitching.

Good for you on starting the sorting process! I look forward to seeing the ones that make the list to be worked on.

Hooray! You have done it! I bet you find lots of "new" treasures.
