Memorial Sampler Update



Here is a picture of the progress on The Memorial Sampler. This design is from designer: Midsummer Night Designs. Not much stitching on it. I have been working on the Breast Cancer Projects and Halloween Ornaments.

Today I started cleaning up the file cabinet with all my patterns and charts in it. Why did I even start this? I have them all over my Living room floor in piles. I am categorizing All my charts by Holiday and Seasons. Boy, It is turning into a chore. I ended up finding charts I want to do. I told myself.. NO. I now have to put them in folders and label what they are. Now.. Mind you... I had 2 tubs ( tub queen here) full of charts, punch needle patterns and sewing patterns. I put some I was not going to use of Ebay last week. Out of 40 charts, I only sold 13. No one is buying anything off ebay anymore. Maybe that is why they are giving Free Listing thur July..

In other areas.. Rebel is standing guard over our little black ant problem. She is laying on the floor watching for ants. When she sees one, she will get up and go lick it up like an ant anter.. lol She is better than ant spray... We have not had rain here lately and all these little ants are coming in around my sink. So.. I sprayed under the sink and now they are coming in under the front door. Non-ending battle...Till later... Back to watching the Ant Killer!

it looks great so far.

I hate organizing. it's so much easier to un-organize, LOL.

13 charts is not too bad a sale ratio on Ebay. I used to make up sales lists for message boards, no one ever bought there. I ended up just taking most of it to the GTG. At least there, I didn't have to deal with what they didn't want, LOL.

Ants.... hate 'em... they give me the heebie jeebies when I find them in my house! So far, so good at my new place. No ants. I do have flies tho. I did have a couple of mice, too this last fall when it started to get cold, but my house wasn't very tight so they were finding ways in. My cats took care of them, tho. I wouldn't have known about them, but my kitties don't care to eat them! They just leave them for me as a gift.

I'm terrible at organizing my stash. I always start out trying to sort through and make a donate/sell pile then I end up putting most of it back in the keep pile! I usually end up with a bigger mess than I had before I started!

I think I'm with you on the tub queen thing! Of course, I'm anal and everything is always organized as I'm a weirdo and thinks it fun! hee,hee,hee.
Rebel on ant patrol is too funny! Amazing how those little buggers can find their way in!

I love being organized, I just hate the process! I hope you get it all done, soon!

Rachel is so funny. We had ants consistently every spring for years and then the last two years, nothing. Sophie and Gracie just watched 'em march right in!

I see you have some more junk this morning in the comments. They sure have been persistant lately! I am going to have to go through my charts also and put up ones I don't want for trade. I do have a lot but nowhere near even one tub full , let alone tow! Wow ! I can see how that would keep you busy!

That is one gorgeous design! Beautiful work April.

Don't you know that you shouldn't clean out your pattern drawer unless you're looking for something to stitch???? That's a HUGE no-no ;o)

LOL! What a good dog!

Melanie said...

I need to borrow your dog if she does the same thing for earwigs. I've got those popping up all over and.........ugh. I *hate* those bugs so so so much. :|

Memorial Sampler looks fabulous! I just started on that one. Not much done so far but hope to post a pic soon.

I spent part of yesterday and today doing a little organizing of my threads and beads. Next, the charts and fabrics.

Love the ant eater!!

Valerie said...

I love your Memorial Sampler...it is such a touching, beautiful design! Good luck with the organizing! I also have way too many charts and I desperately need to organize. Thanks for the inspiration!
