Eight Tips for Getting Your Needlepoint Stash Under Control

Beautiful threads are my weakness...

I’m in de-stashing mode. Full on, no holds barred, get ‘er done destashing mode! So, what does that look like? Well, for me, it began with re-reading Marie Kondo‘s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. (You really should read it if you haven’t already. It’s a game-changer!)

The gist of the book is that you should only keep things that bring you joy. It kinda’ reminds me of that famous William Morris quote, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”  Wise words to live by, if you ask me. 😉

De-stashing your needlepoint is easy when you follow William Morris' "golden rule".

So, how does one go about de-stashing?

Well, for starters you need to organize what you have. Yes, it’s gonna take some time, but since we’re all staying home more these days, I can’t think of a better project to tackle right now – or one with a more positive outcome. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned stitcher, organizing your stash will help you know what you have, make it easier to find what you need, and inspire you to make projects you love. Ready to dive in? Terrific!

Frogging the Pumpkin

Hi there!

I hope you’re having a happy Tuesday! It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Tuscaloosa. In fact, I spent some time out on my newly screened-in porch yesterday. Wanna know what I was doing? Frogging the pumpkin canvas I showed you on Instagram a couple of weeks ago! Yep – I ripped it all out…
