While trying to catch up on my blog reading I headed over to Lee's blog, Lake Stitcher, and saw an intriguing post. Her idea was to pick a pattern from her stash that's been around for a few years, say from when you first got serious about stitching, and work on it during her birthday month, which just happens to be March. Lets just say I have a fairly decent stash. Not as large as some, but certainly I've reached SABLE and if truth be told if SABLE was more a place on a track my stash would be like a super speedway and I'd be on at least my 2nd Green/White/Checker finish of a 500 mile race. (If you're not a fan of NASCAR this means nothing to you, but for some of my friends this will explain a lot. For the rest just believe me when I say I'm WAY PAST SABLE.)

I have no idea what I'm going to choose but I decided this was a great idea and I'm in. I've got a few months until July to go through my stash and decide what I want to work on, if I need to make any thread changes and gather supplies or wander through my fiber and fabric stash to see what I can use. I'm thinking about all the classes I took back "in the day" and all the patterns I've collected over the years. I'm fairly certain something is going to just jump out and say, "PICK ME!!!"

If you're a stitcher, take a look at Lee's post (linky again in case you missed it the first time) and see if you'd like to join the fun.

    the solution for exceeding SABLE is very simple. We can never die! It is the true secret to immortality.

    My birthday is in November. Every year I decide that only 3 or 4 people are knit worthy. then in November I have an aneurysm or something and decide to make a bunch of Christmas stuff. So it would be a bad month...

    I think that's a really good idea for working on something that you've had for a long time. I should do something like that as there are loads around here that I've just shelved! Can't wait to see what you pick out.
