April WIPocalypse

 It is time once again to see the progress on my WIPs.  Since last month I have finished Cat Cushion.
 I also made good progress on Little Fairies at Play and hope to finish page 5 before the next WIPocalypse.
And I finished Live out Loud.  No new starts yet.  I am enjoying stitching on Little Fairies at Play and can't seem to get motivated to start anything new.

This month we were to show how we organize our stash.
 For large projects like Little Fairies at Play I keep the floss for that project in its own box.
 Here are my other boxes of floss waiting to be used in projects
 Once projects are kitted up I keep the patterns, floss and material in this plastic carrier that has 10 pockets in side.  If the projects are on scroll rods they do not stay in this carrier.
 Here is my tub of finished projects that need framed or made into something.  Looks like it is getting a little full. 
 I put my projects that are on scroll rods when they are not being worked on in this hanging garment bag.
 Here is a tub of patterns, kits, fabric with scroll rods stacked on top.
Another tub of patterns, kits, fabric with finishing supplies, more floss that needs put on bobbins sitting on top.

Now that my daughter has moved out I could turn her bedroom into a stitching room.  Maybe someday I will get around to doing that.

Congrats on the finishes...they look fabulous! Thanks for sharing how you store/organize your stash, it's always interesting to see how others manage to accomplish this - mine
is just a random mess!

Congrats on your finishes! Little Faeries at Play is so cute! I love seeing how everyone organizes their stash. Using a garment bag is a great idea.

Congrats on your wonderful finishes.
The Fairies at play is adorable and I can see why you are enjoying it. Thanks for sharing your storage ideas. Could you show us a picture of how you are hanging the scroll rods inside the garment bag?

Wow, you have so many beautiful projects. I like the idea of having a single box of floss for the larger projects. I just bought two like that and never thought of how to organize the extensive floss. Do you have any tips on how to approach these multiple page projects. I have never done one before.
