Stash & More Stash

There is nothing like buying more cross stitch floss, material and speciality fibers even when you already have plenty. A sale is nice but not really necessary when you find something new that just has to be added to your collection of stash. Our extra room has gotten so full with all my cross stitch supplies along with all of Mom's crochet thread we found on sale last year. Not shown are her trunks and boxes full of thread.

dmc floss stored in my 2 drawer antique thread cabinet

boxes to hold additional speciality fibers, silk thread
and a small trunk to hold bookmark supplies

drawers for extra floss and material
found on sale

expandable folders for evenweave material by counts
these are hidden behind a cabinet door

more projects waiting their turn

4 drawer file cabinet
with all my cross stitch books
organized by subjects

cross stitch hardback books
and more containers
to hold trims, beads and scissors

and last but not least
the bookcase that holds
most of the hardback books for
cross stitch, needlepoint and quilting

Now to find the time to sit and enjoy looking for new projects to work on and even more important the time to sit and stitch.


  1. OOoooo I wish I was as organized. I am trying to get some semblance of order.

    You have given me some good ideas.

    Have a blessed day.

  2. Oh Sandy, why does this post make me feel so much better? I guess it's because I now know that I'm not the only stasher out there. Mine is not so pretty though. I'm a messy stasher.

  3. Wow, that's a lot of supplies, Sandy! It reminds me of when I did cross stitch years ago. My eyes aren't like they used to be!

    Enjoy! Hope you find lots of time for stitching.

  4. What a lovely collection of treasures You Have There and all so beautifully stored and displayed.
