Inside the Wooden Treasure Chest

When last we met, I was going to spend my weekend having a go at the wooden chest that holds my stash that is out of sight and out of mind. I managed that before life went into overdrive and here's what I found. There were distinctly two groups, one of kits or of things I've kitted and not yet started. The rest were pretty much unfinished obsessions that I hope to finish one day. They are now all nice and neatly arranged and I hope to dig something out of there from time to time now that I know how to find things. The small piece I finished during the SuperBowl was a kit that I kept out to work on, so there's hope.
I hate to have to admit that I have a large blanket basket to dig into one of these weekends that is also full of stitching, and there's a drawer in a bookcase and OMG where does it end.

Wow you are making me feel a lot better about my own WIP/UFO lists! You've got some serious stitching to attend to. :) Also congrats on your Superbowl Sunday finish - I'm glad something good came out of watching the poor Bears lose. :(
