Sort, purge and repeat!

Although it was Family Day in AB, DH had to work on Monday so I took advantage and cleaned out our bedroom closet. We had done DH's clothes over the weekend. I now have a bag and a half of clothes for the donation box. Oh...did I mention we have both lost some winter weight!!!

This inspired me to go through some of my craft stuff and I did a mini purge there. What really excited me was I found a chart that I thought was lost! So now to get Moonlit Cabin finished so I can try something else. MC is almost done, back stitching is not one of my favorite past times but o the results...things just seem to pop. Now if only I could stitch and not keep patting myself on the back every time I make some progress.

I'm contemplating working on more than 1 project at a time. Instead of just working on a sizable piece, perhaps I'll add a few small things - bookmarks, ornies etc. I'm hoping that it will just keep me inspired to keep stitching. I would hate to think I would get discouraged and not finish anything! Any thoughts of this? I've read that some like to work on a certain project on a certain day etc. That would keep things fresh...but how do you keep everything separate...z*pl*ck bags for each project?!

Not sure when I will post next...gotta watch the Scotties Tournament of Hearts which wraps up this weekend! Bye!

Try some ornies, Berta! Think of Christmas ahead and an ornie for each of those gorgeous grandkids of yours!

I used to use the large Ziplok baggies for my projects, but they aren't very durable. If you really want to treat yourself, I highly recommend these mesh bags:

I hope the link works. I bought myself a few of these and I love them. SB&B often has sales on, and they have great stuff.
