Exhausted!

This week has been exhausting. The doors and floors in here are done. They look fantastic. There's just a few little trim details to attend to. I had hoped to get the floors in the living room done this week, too, but it didn't happen. We had a couple showings in the midst of it all. And parent-teacher conferences. And a minor stomach ailment. Tonight is M's birthday party. We don't do the huge, billions of kids blowouts here. We have family over and eat dinner and cake and ice cream and have fun. We have a big family, so it is a lot of people, but we love them all! So, I'm making a cake and chicken tetrazzini.

Today, I'm going to answer the stitching blogger's question, even though I haven't been stitching much.

Do you have a system for organizing freebie charts in your stash? If
so, what is it? Do you print out copies of all of the freebies that
you find on the web (that you think you might actually stitch) or do
you maintain electronic copies of them until you are ready to stitch them.

I have a lot of freebie charts. Most of them are saved in a folder on my computer. They are categorized by theme and/or designer. The paper copies are organized the same way in page protectors in four thin binders. I only print them out when I'm ready to stitch them, but then I usually save my paper copy in the binders. Of course, I also have those great freebies that are sent along with your order when you buy things.

I used to stitch a lot of freebies. They're usually small designs, so they make a nice break when you tend to stitch huge, complicated things like I do.
