Enough stash for awhile?

I was looking for something in my stash the other day and realized that I easily have enough to keep me going for many, many years. Probably long after I'm able to see and stitch any more. Of the things that I've organized so far (about 3/4 of my cross stitch stuff) I counted 15 Works in Progress, 53 Kits, 20 Ready to Start projects that I've kitted myself, 13 Charts and Embellishments that just need to have fabric added to get started (I probably already have the fabric in my fabric stash), 6 Charts and Fabrics that need to have the floss gathered to start, and about 124 charts. This is only cross stitch! It does not include My Stitching Album, which can be counted as many small projects or one very expensive big one, and a few other things that I haven't found/organized yet. I also have hardanger, pulled thread, drawn thread, sewing/quilting, and other craft projects waiting for my attention. So my new years resolution is to work only from my stash, EXCEPT for the rest of My Stitching Album which I've committed to buy from my local shop, and perhaps a 'little something' at Celebrations in May ;-)

Happy Holidays to all, and a Happy New Year filled with lots of time for stitching.
