Thanksgiving, Part 1... and STASH!

First, some pre-moving things. Here is the Halloween SP gift that simply amazed me: Purple bat, roving, and happy spooky socks! It got to me right before we moved. Such pretty yarn, and did I mention the purple bat bowl? Oh, and there was also this purple bat bowl! Yes, I love it.
The chocolate didn't make it into the picture, though... yum.


Second, I am grateful that we have a roof over our heads, and that our new home is warm and cozy. I need to get a water heater replaced and the phone isn't connected yet, but other than that, everything works and is making us happy. Some pictures of the fuzzies in their new lair coming up!

Before I show pictures of our new place and our Thanksgiving dinner, though, I wanted to share why I need to be on a stash diet. As we were getting ready to move, it all came together in one place. Yarn stash, fiber stash, everything. Doesn't look so bad, right?


That's because you're only seeing the satellites. Here is the Main Attraction. Aaaah!

The scary thing? After I took these pictures, I found more yarn.
I need to go on a yarn diet.

A purple bat,I like it. Your stash isn't so bad I am lucky enough to have a spare room full of goodies, ever since my daughter moved to her house. Getting your new home ready to how you both like it, is the best bit now.best wishes,Julie.C

Oooh, fun halloween present! I like the roving :) And wow, yarn! I'm also in need of a yarn/books diet. I keep finding them everywhere!

Bezzie said...

Ha ha! Yeah...that part of moving does suck!!! Cute bat!

Catherine said...

Haha, my yarn stash is like that too! Although it is fabric that I keep finding b/c I never had a box big enough for it all... the best part about unpacking it though is you'll find stuff you forgot you had!

Your stash is quite modest and contained, I think. Does it go berserk when your readers aren't looking?

And here I was thinking to give you some of MINE. (You do still want the books, right? They're in the trunk of my car.)

You have a great amount of stash! How much fun is it! I think mine be a bit worse tho... Great swap stuff too!

Nice goodies. Love the roving color. And then there's the question I ask myself all the time: is my stash too big? It feels just right to me, but it sure takes up too much space.
