Jumping the Gun....Just a Little



Ok, remember this was the year that I was going to get the stash under control. Well, I'll let you draw your own conclusions...


Click HERE for a larger, more horrifying version.

The painters left our house Friday at dinner time and we were expecting company on Saturday, so we had to hustle! I'm amazed that the girls and I managed to set this up, take the photos and put everything back into plastic baggies and appropriate Rubbermaid totes in under 3 hours. Unfortunately, the composition of the photo suffered somewhat because of our haste. I think we did a better job of arranging the yarn by colour and texture last year.


Just for reference, here is last year's photo.






Ok, so the stash doesn't look any smaller, but the transformation to our hallway is pretty dramatic...new stairs, fresh paint...ignore the handrails...they still need to be restained, but hey, it's a start!!

It is April 1st. Is that an April Fool's entry? No way. Not that much stash??? I only have a little chest full and a bit of an oversplash, but I'm not buying any more - really - until I use what I have. This shot scared me.

The floor is beautiful! And oh yes, so is the yarn!
3 hours? It took me about 3 minutes to arrange my stash...

OMG, you win, even if I had enough yarn to fill the stairs the dog hair would stop me.
