Yarn Focus Challenge

It's time for this. Thank goodness Deb joined, or I might not have seen it. But ever since I Flashed my Stash on April Fool's Day, I've felt like something of a fool. I don't have near the stash of some folks, I know, but what I have is more than I feel comfortable with. No, at present it's staying here, because I have a good use for all of it! ;) But it's time to step back and think twice before I buy - this isn't a yarn diet - I tried that before and it didn't work. Diets don't. This is a concerted attempt to be rational in my purchases. I can still buy - once a month...a "free day" to buy. But then after that, if I buy again in the month, the ticker starts over. It's a low-key group - we don't get hyper and crazy if you miss the target, but we do hope everyone is accountable on their blogs (and honest). This is more a mindfulness exercise. Just to get you to think before you do (and oh, boy, do I need to think before I buy!).

If you're interested in where my philosophical foundation of this decision is coming from ... in the next couple of days, I promise Nana Sadie's Place will have an explanation. Till then, I will focus! Join us? Just jog on over to Rebekah's blog.

I understand your decision. I too have stopped buying for a while. I had been putting new yarn in the chair in our living room because the one designated box for it is full. On my blog recently you can see that chair...or is covered in bags of yarn.

What is it about yarn that makes us want to horde it like a dragon with glittering jewels?

Good luck Sallee with your new philosophy!

I am not going to join, as I feel overcommitted towards blogging at the moment, but spent part of the afternoon winding and dividing up yarns for my ruana, and feel pretty focused on getting several projects completed before adding any new yarns. Eager to hear your philosophy, though!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
