Like the others, it's not finish-finished yet, but I did manage to stick it to the fridge so I can pretend it's been made into a proper magnet!
I think I'm down to three Mill Hill kits in my stash now... two that I'm not crazy about, and a beautiful one of cats silhouetted against the moon. Here's the three...
Love this one! (Moonlit Kitties)
Kinda meh about these. (Autumn Bouquet & Fall Blooms)
My wife likes those two, though (I'm sure she's the one who picked them out) so I may just do them as a gift for her. She used to stitch, but now she's 100% into knitting, so "my stash" is really "our stash" and contains all of her stuff too. :3
I have three others on my wishlist, but I'm not buying anything until I do something with all three of these... either stitch them up or gift/sell. I'm interested in working on using things up (not just stitchy stash, but all sorts of things) but I don't want to fall into the trap of making something I don't really like just for the sake of crossing it off a list, either.
I do a lot of reading about decluttering, minimalism, and recently, destashing makeup! One of the terms used for makeup is to "hit pan" which is to use up enough of something (like blush or eyeshadow) to see the silver pan showing at the bottom. I want to start doing that with all sorts of things around the house. And if I don't like something enough to "hit pan" on it, then maybe it needs to be escorted out, preferably by giving away, selling, or donating.
So I'll be making an effort to fully enjoy a variety of things! Tea, eyeliner, those interesting beans in the pantry, candles, video games, yarn, stationery, the contents of the freezer, nail polish, etc. I may ramble about it here on occasion, but only as a side note to stitching posts.
Don't worry, this isn't going to turn into some weird decluttering blog. :p
