Ten Valid Reasons for Adding to your Stash...

(I can claim no credit for the cleverness of this list.  It was posted on the cross stitch forum this morning and made me laugh.  Thanks Maureen for sharing this with your fellow addicts!)

1.It  insulates the cupboard where it is kept.

2. It keeps the economy moving.  It is my duty to support cross stitch shops.

3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.

4. I'm participating in a contest - the one who dies with the most cross stitch wins.

5. It keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook it to enjoy it, you never have to feed it, change it, wipe it's nose or walk it.

6. Because I'm worth it.

7. Like dust, it's good for protecting previously unprotected spaces in the house; like the dining room table.

8. It not immoral, illegal or fattening.  It calms the nerves, soothes the soul and makes me feel good.

9. Because it is on sale... Because that is such a beautiful design...I've never seen it before...I must have it.

10. Buy it now, before your husband  retires and goes with you on all your shopping expeditions.


  1. Hope you don't mind but I am stealing this to share across blog land - it so needs sharing with as many stitchers as possible xx

  2. Totally agree Nicola :) Go for it!

  3. LOVING it. So true, so funny.

  4. I'm still LOLing about it :)

    I think I'd like to add #11 - It's my retirement fund!
