Started organizing yarn
I've got a lot of organizing to do.
Here's the before mess:





I got overwhelmed, so, I drove to my LYS, talked to a nice employee there, bought this pretty yarn:


After I came home, I noticed my little Chihuahua was cold, so, I covered her up, and now she's toasty warm. It gets cold here,sometimes, and this old house we live in, wasn't built for keeping the heat in.
Anyways, isn't she cute?

Yes, it's a lot. Some of it is donations.
If your husband ever complains about your yarn 'habit', just show him these photos.

I've been wanting to organize my yarn too...
Any day now, any day...
I can think in my mind how beautiful it would look, all in individual cubbies, but still no movement in the direction of my vision...

Well it's funny because I have a project in mind for all the yarn I have, but I find new projects and therefore need new yarn. I will indeed show this to him the next he complains.

My first thought was 'why?' Then I clicked in, you do have a lot of yarn! I think of my (much smaller now) stash as 'security'. No one I know, and a lot of folks I don't know, will be warmer because of it.

Wow... that would be so fun to organize!! (and buy storage containers for...)

I got a kick out of your stress relief... "overwhelmed by yarn... therefore I must buy more!"

I think I would be more overwhelmed trying to use it! I have guilt pangs with just the little bit I have hanging around!

Last year, in our thread called Year of the Stash 2007...one of our Stashies declared a particular day "Flash Your Stash Day"!

It was really neat to see photos of other's stash! It was a real eye-opener!
