Well, if you have followed me at all this year, you will know that my only accomplishments for the year were a few months of organization, which fizzled out when it came time to sort floss...The progress reports are in the following posts:
January: The before pictures and starting to clear cutting table surface and floor space. This was my most productive month when it came to organizing. Beads, yarns, tools, fabric - all were consolidated, sorted and stored away.
February: Charts. This took a lot of time and the progress wasn't that apparent but it meant my charts were at least in some order.
March: Floss (speciality) Quite a few thread brands ended up in their own boxes; not sorted by color, name or number, however.
April: Floss (more speciality) Everything but DMC was now packed away. Sadly, Anchor needs sorting and DMC is a hot mess... but my cutting table was the most accessible it has been in over a year!
I faded out here*, and never got the DMC or Anchor flosses sorted, nor did I work on the kitted-up charts in my cabinet which badly need sorting. My quilting fabrics require refolding and sorting as well and I think it's time to downsize that stash (especially the magazines!)
*Technically, I continued to organize but my emphasis shifted to paper crafting supplies which were also a mess. I have summarized this progress in my other blog, here. I mention that here because my stitchery and my paper crafting occupy the same general space and were heavily intertwined in how the space was used. So any progress in creating room for product was of benefit to stitchery storage as well.
As for starts and finishes on actual needlework, I didn't place a single stitch. My left had still cramps after holding a hoop or frame from more than an hour and my mojo is stalled. I hope to change that this next year because there will be three trips (two road, one cruise) where stitching will be the best way to pass the time in hotels/staterooms. Here's hoping!
