I can't believe I counted them...

Me, either! I have my stitching cabinet pretty full and I am *not*
going to go through and count 2 drawers worth of patterns!!!!!!

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.

Wow Rich, that's an envious stash...it must be like going to a LNS every time you look through it! Fantastic. I would LOVE to expand to those numbers but my storage space is quite limited. I live in a house that was built in 2000 but for some insane reason we only have the two bedroom closets on the main floor. So I have to squish my stash inbetween our clothing, household crap like vacuum cleaners and mops, and my small collection of stuffed animals. The stuffies are important because they're my stitching companions, and they hold my threads for me.

Since you actually counted your stash I decided to count mine. As of this day I have 3 WIPs, 3 patterns kitted up and in the queue, and 14 patterns in stash. I find 14 to be an unacceptably low number...now I'm nagging my hubs to take me back to Stitchville so I can replenish. I've had many finishes this year but they were all small projects. I have two bigger projects that are going to take me quite some time (mirabilia's Bluebeard's Princess, and Zecca's Bird on a Nest).
