Now only the hit and miss ends need to be hooked on Hannah so time is getting near for the 'next one' on my frame. Was thinking about a Maggie Bonanomi design but that would have to be drawn on linen. Drawing isn't a problem with me as I'm used to drawing patterns. It was the visit through the drawers of patterns on backing that put a halt to that idea. Believe it or not I've 29 patterns already on foundation...sad but true. Instead of drawing out something new my plans are to pull a pattern already drawn to reduce my stash.
First in line (as of this minute but I reserve the right to change my mind at any given second) is Betsy's Crow. I love crows and think it would make a great pillow, it is a pattern purchased last November while in a class with her.
After taking inventory of my 'stash' I have typed a list of the pattern names, the designers and size of the patterns. This way it will be easier for me to pick the next one by looking at a piece of paper rather than pulling out ALL of the rug patterns again.
During this process, thus far I've earmarked 5 to list on ebay when I get in the mood to sit in front of the computer for a stretch at a time. This won't be the first time I've reduced my stash on ebay, but it is so easy for one pattern purchase at a time for the numbers to creep up.
