Happy New Year! You had a very successful 2011 and you have a very ambitious 2012. I was in my local shop this summer when I made the comment that I needed to slow down on buying stash. The cashier said "real x-stitchers never stop buying, they want to support the designers and shops." I just chuckled. But seriously, I'm not sure I'll LIVE long enough to stitch all the patterns I have! haha
