My Creative Space: Woodland Sampler

Since the kit came in, I've been stitching away at The Frosted Pumpkin's 2013 monthly woodland sampler. I didn't order the supplies until the beginning of this month, and I'm really kicking myself I didn't do it sooner!

So far I've started on a few frames (we receive all the frames in advance, then each month we get the corresponding "filler") and I just completed the March square last night. Isn't the little smiling amanita adorable?
Now what are the odds I'll be able to catch up before I receive the April design? A bigger question: what are the chances I'll catch up before I receive the kit for The Spring Sampler? That's right, I signed up for the spring sampler too - that starts in (and is on-going throughout) April and I can't wait for all the spring-y goodness!

On another note... I need to figure out what to do with this floss. Especially since I'll be working on this all year - plus I'll be getting a similarly sized bunch for the spring sampler and I don't want to mix them up. Or have them get all tangled. Any suggestions?

I got some DMC stitch bow organizers from Michaels a few years ago and pick them up whenever I have a spare coupon kicking around. They're great plastic sticks that you can wrap your floss around and even write the numbers on the side tag so you know what you need to re-buy when you run out. They even have little clear plastic organizers that hold all the stitch bows and if you're feeling extra eager they have binders you snap them all into! They work great for my needs and might be just what you need too!

My suggestion is use them. Pass some of your beautiful drawings on to fabric, embroider them and make some pillows. They are about the easiest things you can make. Imagine your grandpa's flowers on your couch!
