 Cant wait to see what the Medussa looks like when finished. Sounds weird but I like what I see, she looks beautiful.

WOMAN!   I SWEAR you have been in my stash!   LOL

I have this very same one!   Along with the Janlynn Season samplers....what else do you have in your stash????????

lol - I was just discussing this with my husband.  I have 5 four-inch binders full of patterns in page protectors.  I have a little bit of everything; from alphabets to animals to babies to fairies to dragons to weddings to wolves. And a bunch in-between!  I have one binder just for wolves - Santa brought me about 20 for Xmas last year - I have GRAND ambitions of doing a bunch for a quilted wall-hanging.

They are sorted by type, then (some) are divided into smaller sections, and then each one has a sticky-tab on the end of the page that has the title of that pattern.  Sad thing is, I think that if I stitched 8-10 hours a day for the rest of my life I wouldn't get them done!

Yes, I'm a little anal-retentive.  simple smile But, at 41, I have finally come to embrace that about myself.  lol  (It saves me a lot of stress!)

I know this is an older post but wow!  Great organizational skills!  Even if you never get to do them all think of what a grand thing it will be to leave to your children or grandchildren.  After my grandmother passed I got a lot of her stuff and I still keep it in the same organizational style she did.  It was nice just to look through everything, it is like she is there with me everytime :)  I hope to teach my granddaughter cross stitch one day and leave everything to her.
