The 'O' word....

....dare I say it? Shhh, don't tell anyone, but I really have to take the plunge and .....(yikes!) organize! Yes, things are getting so bad here that it's seriously getting in the way of stash acquisition - and we can't have that, can we?!!  For all the other areas in my life, I'm reasonably organized, neat and tidy - but when it comes to crafty stuff...well I'm a completely different person. I keep telling myself that I work better when there's clutter on my desk, but when you can't see the actual desk, then you know you're in trouble. So, this week I'm doing the 'O'........I'll let you know how successful I am!!

Thank you for all the lovely comments about last week's Summer Bucket List. I have the bucket sitting on my kitchen counter so that it's in sight and that we actually do some of the activities. I had some lovely comments about having a Stitcher's Bucket list (which was just a last minute idea when I was writing the post last week) so for all those who would like to make themselves a Stitcher's Bucket List here's a design just for you!

I know that I could never find a bucket big enough for all the stitching I'd like to do! lol

I haven't given any colours on the chart - just use whatever you feel like, or use up those little odds and ends of threads that we all hang on to!

Please feel free to post the chart on your blog or send other stitcher's here so they can stitch it too. The more the merrier!

So, in my totally disorganized crafting/stitching life, I have it in my head that tomorrow is the new moon which means it's TUSAL time. If I'm wrong, I apologize for no doubt panicking many of my fellow TUSALers. Things can only get better after I'm O'd.

Not surprisingly, there's a lack of threads in the jar this month. Hopefully I'll be more productive for next months picture!

Wish me luck for my massive 'O' undertaking!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Oh wow what a lovely design. I will definitely have to add that to my "to stitch" list. You are correct with TUSAL time too :) xx

Good luck in your organizing. I have spent the past week working on that very thing. It's fun to "find" all the things I had forgotten about and get them all together in order to so some work!

I hate organising :-( However the end result is always good just a shame it doesn't stay that way, I'm sure stash disorganises itself as I can't possibly be that messy!

Hope you got all sorted out and back to stitching :-)

Hello Rhona

Just wanted to say thank you for the ORT jar idea and the tutorial on how to do it. I've just finished mine and I'm so pleased with the result.
