Just Some Thoughts

Last night I decided I wanted to put down the things I have been crocheting, mostly bibs and washcloths, and make something else. I started digging through some patterns I had accumulated when I first started to learn crochet about 5 years ago for some inspiration. I remember how odd the pattern lingo looked to me and that I thought I would never be able to make something from a pattern.

I truly got inspired! You know the old saying "Everything old is new again?" Well, I have so many ideas of things to create there are not enough hours in a day. Some of the things I will be working on are real stash busters! That is a blessing, isn't it? I am a yarn-a-holic. I can't go into ANY store that sells yarn without getting at least one new skein LOL! Any heaven help me if my favorite yarns are on sale...stash overload for sure. I wonder if there is a 12-step program for people with this addiction...Hi, I am Gloria and I am a yarn-a-holic!

I could never give up this addiction...I love looking in my craft closet and seeing my stash. I bought some cloth shelves that hang from the bar and I have my stash divided into color families. I love looking at it for inspiration. I guess that is why I have this addiction. A certain yarn will catch my eye and I see the possibilities for projects. That sort of sums up why I craft and why I love to create. The endless possibilities!

Today is another blessed day! What a gift each day is for us! Count your blessings and you will be amazed at the abundance you have in your life. I always say that as long as my needs are met, I am rich! Make this a wonderful day!

I know what you mean about your yarn stash, except mine is fabric! I love fabric! It truly is a comfort thing for me! It is so tangible, you can feel it(or your yarn) or just look at it and the comfort just surrounds you, doesn't it?!!!!!
