If you're like me, you probably have more stitching charts than you know what to do with. I know I have WAY more charts than I could ever possibly stitch in a life time, but I do enjoy them! It's almost like flipping through your favorite magazine. I had a problem trying to keep my charts in order....I am pretty orderly and like to consider myself organized (most times), but the charts had gotten out of hand.
I went to my local Walmart a couple of years ago and purchased a binder along with some clear, plastic paper protectors/sleeves. Then, I slid my patterns into these protectors, one pattern per sleeve. I also am able to keep the fabric and threads I have purchased with these patterns altogether, so when I decide to stitch, all I have to do is pull out the sleeve and everything is together.
Since it was snowing so much this evening here in Michigan, I thought it would be a great night to reorganize the new charts I have purchased. I went from one binder to three! Luckily, I had saved some older binders with hopes that I would be able to use them. Since I hold in my possession, many beautiful patterns from wonderful designers, I put them in alphabetical order, The smaller binder is dedicated to my charts from Carriage House/Barrick and The Goode Huswif patterns. I think I could open up my own stitching shop! Have a great evening stitching!!!!!!!!!
