A Stitchy Question

Hello all,

I wanted to ask you a question.  I have so so so many cross stitch magazines from the times when I used to have a subscription as a present.  However, in each one there might only be one or two things I'd like to stitch, and most that I'm not sure I'll ever get round to!  I wondered if you guys keep the whole magazine or if you rip out only the designs that you like and recycle the rest?

If you tear out the designs, how do you store them? by category or some other way?

I really don't want to start ripping them up, but there's a nagging voice telling me how much space I'd make if I did this.  Also, being able to go through and see the designs only might encourage me to stitch on them I I wondered what the rest of you stitchy folk do?

Turtle Trot SAL Update 8


I can't believe we are part way through August already! Eeek!

Things are slowing down a bit here for me, I'm sleeping a lot more now we are getting closer to my due date, so although I feel like I've had some time for crafty bits and bobs, most of my effort this month has been concentrated on the same piece... and that is this one which I started last month... Ugly Duckling.

Here's an update piccie:

I'm parking this one now for a bit to make a start on another piece from my SAL list.  Hopefully by this time next month there will be a new distraction in my life (and thank goodness it's cooled down a bit here)!  But until then, I'm off to catch up with a mountain of blog posts!

Bye for now! :)
