I'm SUCH a good old git!

Remember I mentioned I'd sorted and updated my spreadsheet with the tatting books on?

Well I then decided to make a list of threads I've got with quantities, numbers etc.  I started in on the number 20's.  I've listed those under 'make, colour, shade, number and name (if they had one) with a rough note of how much was on a ball.  By that I mean 'full, half full, quarter full'.

It took me ages to do and I was surprised at how I'd managed to get a few repeats over the years.  I have enough orange/rust to last me and my descendants about 200 years!!!!

Having done the 20's I moved on to do the 40's.  That's all I'm going to do - too much like hard work!!!

The main reason for doing this is so that when I get to Palmetto I'll know what I've got back at home - watch out vending room here I come!!

I've also managed to add another doodle page - the giraffe and a new tree.  I've 'titivated' the giraffe and the tree can have a longer trunk if required.

You put me to shame being so organised!
As you know I am due to make about 300 of these giraffes for a wedding, hope they look as good as this one.

Cute giraffe and tree. You put me to shame being so organized, even if it's only part of your thread stash :-)

The term I've heard is "SABLE" (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy)
