I Dreamt That All My Projects Were Complete!

For those of you who don't get the "Dream" reference, years ago, Maidenform Bra had a series of ads that started out, for instance, "I dreamt I went to the Eiffel Tower in my Maidenform Bra". This caption was under a women wearing her Maidenform Bra (pointy boobs, like arrows), with a beautiful skirt, standing under the Tower.  Well, I DON'Twalk around showing off my bra.....believe me no one wants to see my 70 year old droopies, but I would like to have all my projects done. I'm working now on a pullover that I started perhaps five years ago. Poor little thing got put away and didn't see the light of day until I got to cleaning and sorting the stash, etc. So back to the finishing and another cuppa coffee.

STASH, you are EBIL!!!!!

So today, another stab at sorting the EBIL STASH!  I spent about 1 hour sorting, trying to make sense of the stash built up over several years.  Some of the yarn, I have no idea why it's in my possession.  I'm stacking it in baskets and clear bags in a bookcase.  The top shelf holds patterns and reference book.  Now, at least I can see my yarnshame.  I promised myself that I would complete current projects, get out UFOs to turn them into FOs and NOT BRING IN ANY MORE YARN!!!! ::head hanging here::  I could not resist some beautiful Italian cotton blend yarn (14 skeins) I saw, on sale, at the Naked Sheep (Queen St. the Beaches) this past week.  There is a reason for the 'extravagance' ( $36) is that I have a hankering for a cotton summer tank and cardi for which I do have a pattern.  Time  to get back to the sorting, while the slow cooker does its job of making Chile.  Yum!
