For instance, I collected botanical designs for a while. Never stitched one. And then I collected bird charts, specifically Crossed Wing Collection charts. If I'm being generous with myself, I could say that I stitched one. But actually, it was a chart of just a feather. So, ummm. Not really a bird. Just a bird part, really.
Then there were the Cross Eyed Cricket charts that I collected. The ones with the chubby little angel characters? To be stitched as an afghan. Yeah. No.
But anyway! Focusing on the positive, here's my fourth Quaker finish!

I'll tell you why I crave order.
We've been emptying my MIL's house and moving furniture and it's more disruptive than I'd like to admit. Some of the furniture is coming here and I feel like there are so many things in my home that are in a "just waiting" stage. Clothes that need to be put away are "just waiting" for the dressers to arrive. Beds are set up and are "just waiting" for mattresses. Boxes of dishes and kitchenware are stacked in the living room "just waiting" to be delivered to my son and my daughter. And seriously....that's just the tip of the clutter iceberg. I long for that feeling when you dust off your hands and say, "Well, that's done!"
Thank goodness for my stitching.
