Let me introduce myself. My name is Jill and I am a stash collector. I have a stash of stitching, knitting, stamping, scrapbooking, and beading supplies. I love them all and find myself unable to part with any. The bad news is that I live in 1100 sq ft. With all of this stash, you might expect a lot of projects to be completed but you would be, sadly, wrong. I am working on many projects at once and like to start many projects. This does cut into the ability to complete things.

Many of my friends are dedicated to projects and are able to focus their time and energy on one or two at a time. As you get to know me and my stash, maybe it will become clear why I cannot do that. And should that happen, please enlighten me. I look forward to sharing my many project starts and stash enhancements.

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! And when you figure out why you've got so much stuff, let me know, because I've got the same affliction.....

Yes don't we all have that affliction, though some of us 'attempt' to control stash enhancement.
