So that’s my project bag for the upcoming Autumn.  The only rule is that when I go to stitch, I need to pick something out of the bag. When I finish something I can replace it with another project. Using this method makes my WIP pile seem less daunting.  I may tweak this a little, but right now it seems pretty settled to  me.

Thanks for visiting.

All of God’s best to you.
