I'm trying to finish this one. Widening it still appeals to me, but not right now.
I got 3 of the 4 patterns I ordered. One sold out right away, and is backordered. I ordered those cheap little sharp scissors. I ordered the Colour and Cotton floss while it was on sale. I am still waiting for my book from Germany, but it could still be 10 more days. Today I placed an order for several things. But I am gonna start to stitch from my stash. I have spent this year refilling my stash, and kitting things. And I have two exceptions, the Loose Feathers and the Schoolhouse series since the charts are still coming out slowly. And I ordered from the PTP fabric sale, so it's still gonna show up. So I have things to look forward to coming yet.
But I am watching way too many people shopping as entertainment. Spending money to make ourselves feel better. Most of us have done it, or a slightly different versions of it. Myself included. But at some point - we do need to use the things we have bought. We need to not just keep stashing more and more and more.
And I need to organize my projects. I'm to the point where I am not sure what I have gotten and nearly ordering it again. But I stopped to look if it was in my stash, and it was. So I have enough. I have recorded off library audiobooks - and have them stashed. I have dvds I have not watched after buying them. Podcasts I download and have not listened to. Books I have bought and not read. And then bought the audiobook version cause I did not read the ebook, or read the real book.
Time to start to use it up.

Ordered part 2 of the Schoolhouse series, and Life after Death, and a couple more charts. I could not make up my mind about Life after Death. I think the name finally got to me.
