Moving has been a wonderful thing

I realized this morning while carrying yet another box of stash out of my mom's house that it's great that I moved. Mainly because I get to be with SO all the time now, and I try to take care of him--I feel so homemaker-y the other night after baking cookies and making grilled chicken for him, LOL--but also because I am able to have all my stash neatly organized, and I am getting to see and touch my stash, when I usually couldn't. It was all in boxes, stacked up, unorganized, magazines mixed in with charts in with freebies, a little fabric, like the 800 pound gorilla in the corner. Now, it's a pleasure. I still have some work to do, but my magazines are in one place, unfiled charts in one, fabric in a tote. It's calming. And, honestly, that alone really has soothed my need to buy stash. Even if I was buying. I am having so much fun just looking through what I have. It's been a pleasure. Honestly.

I got some stitching done last night. I finally finished the middle section of Autumn Leaves. It's pretty, but a little paler than I would prefer. But so far, it looks good. And I was stitching with a fantastically rich purple last night, Winterberry. What a treat to stitch with such a glorious color! And that is such a silly small pleasure, I know, but seriously . . .

It rained yesterday, but at least we didn't get the ice. I can deal with mud--I skid less on mud than on ice. We're getting our Christmas tree tomorrow. Hopefully, it won't be too cold or too muddy, but I am not wearing my good Timberlands. SO thinks I am a loon because I won't wear them in slop, but they were a Christmas gift, and I don't want to get them messy. I'm funky like that. So I'll be putting up the tree probably Sunday.

Aww, I'm happy you are enjoying you new stitchy place! Do you feel spoiled? I know I do every time I think about mine!

Don't you dare skid and wreck your new car!

I totally understand about having your stash where you can go through it and drool as much as you'd like. Organizing stash is such a blast! Collecting/buying/fondling stash is often more fun than stitching.

You "sound" so happy in your posts. You deserve it! Woo hoo for you! :-)))

Glad to hear that your move went smoothly :o)

Timberlands are not supposed to get dirty! Doesn't your SO know that? ;o) LOL!

I know what you mean about having access to stash not in boxes. That's where my stuff is now. I need so bad to get a cabinet so I can unpack the stuff and get it out of my bedroom!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
