Oh what a quiet house!!!
Anyways I have a question....

Do you have a special place for storing all your brand new patterns or the ones that you want to start right after the one your doing? Where and how do you keep them? I need ideas what I am doing is not working for me. I am keeping them in a magazine sorter but its full lol and I am finding that I am forgetting about some patterns that I did want to start...hmm maybe I should put it in one of my tabs I don't know....need some ideas I'm stuck



  1. well kiddo,,, start stitching and stop buying... hope your suffering with a good old case of OOTDS, oh, and I just want to let you know that "Stitch" looks awesome. I am posting a pic to my blog tomorrow bright and early.

    Thank you so much for your generous and thoughtful gift. Goes to show you, you just never know what is going to knock you off your chair.

    Be always in stitches.
    p.s. I probably will never learn to speak softly when it comes to others beautiful cross stitch projects, especially when I know they would look so nice @ Henley's Landing. But, I will try! to speak softly that is.... lol
    as always...

  2. I have somewhat of a system but I do not keep a whole lot of patterns. The ones I know I will never stitch go into a box to either one day sell or give away. The rest go into a small 3 drawer plastic dresser (the drawers are 13 x 13 inches and 2 1/2 inches deep, so not very big), it is one of those sterilite containers from Walmart. I keep the ones I want to stitch soon in the top drawer and others that I am considering in the second drawer and misc. in the bottom drawer.

  3. Gee, most of my charts are electronic so they are stored on my pc and portable backup harddrive. The one's in print form are either in a binder or still in the kit I purchased. I have a bookbag of sorts that I use to store the kits. Any magazines/books I have are stored on shelves. Hope this helps a little bit!

  4. I have a system that seems to work for me. I store my patterns in 2 filing bins, plastic ones that I got at Canadian Tire or something like that. Then when I go through my stash looking for my "next" project, I usually pick out a few (inability to decide lol) and I have 4 cardboard coloured folders. New patterns that I bought go in one colour, freebies that I pulled from my stash go in another, and older patterns that I have pulled from my stash go in 2 other folders (not enough room in one lol). I keep my folders close by in a stand so they are easy to access. I'm not sure if that's any help to you, but that's how I do it.... :)

  5. I just answered your question on my blog, complete with photos. It's nothing fancy... just baskets, and it works for me for now. I really want to inventory my stash so I have a better idea of what I have.


Thanks for commenting, I really like reading them and they make my day more enjoyable
