Changes and I thought I had it ready

I thought I had all but a few DMC floss, I know I need a couple of pieces of Linen and specialty threads.....but when I decided to do a double check this morning, well, I am still missing 3 DMC floss and I just purchased some when I went to work yesterday at JoAnn's! What happened I ask.....since I already discarded the list I made, I can not tell you why I did not get what I needed. Then, my good friend Ziz gave me a lovely card for Christmas with a pattern for a Hardanger Angel. I just have to add it to the off the list comes Cross Wings Collection #15 and add The Hardanger Angel from Cross "N Patch. My goal is to get to The Attic Needlework maybe Tuesday to get the last of the supplies. Well, thanks for listening...

Everything in place...

Well, finally put each project in it's envelope, put in the fabric and the floss and sometimes beads, and then into binders..and it only took 2 hours! I also have a new list of a few things to pick up, but each one is ready for the start. Are you? I hope you will be following along with my projects and progress. If you are one of the Crazies let me know so that I can follow your progress too.

My solution

As many have to organize this Crazy project?! Well, I found my solution at Staples. These clear plastic envelopes that fit into a binder are how I plan to keep things in order.
They are inexpensive and fit into a binder....speaking of which, the store had a clearence table by the registers and there were these binders for 50 cents! I really like the way you can clearly see what is in each folder. the envelope flap sticks with velcro. Now, the task of getting out the label maker to mark each folder and split them into the 2 binders......that will be this weekend. I will be ready to start the posts on January 1st.
Thanks for stopping by....
