Honestly, I'm ready to give up! My best friend, Deb in CT can testify that I have no real organizational skills. I'm a stitcher and a colorist/artist when it comes to design and needlework, but I simply stink at organizing. Deb always has things just so. She can take her beautifully manicured fingers and delftly touch stitching tools, fabrics, threads, delicate thingies and they just sigh and melt in her hands, resting into little organized pockets and places like they were always meant to be there at her command. She knows where everything is!
My stitching things, on the other hand, seem more like Alice-down-the-rabbit-holeish- misfits...there if you know where to look, say the magic word and drink tea upside down with a broken flamingo neck!!
I'm sure I have more stash than Debra-The Stitching Cat, but she can put her hands on more stash than I can....so who really wins in the end!!?? To prove my case, here's a picture of a couple of sides of my dainty little stitching/sitting room. I had such dreams for this room, as I always do for my stitching rooms. Yet, they always end up looking like this. I really need help, but I can't bear to throw or give my stash away! I'm not completely selfish. I do give alot of it away, and I feel good about that, but you know how we all feel about our collections and things we just can't part with. I'm convinced that some of you can organize and some of us can't. And, that separates the sheep from the Cheshire Cats!!
