Insane or addicted?

Reading all your entries and looking at the beautiful pictures, I get a little bit frustrated of having so little time to stitch LOL. I've seen several pictures of which I actually bought the chart in the last few years. Yesterday I took a look at my purchase history on HAED and I have been buying charts since april 2007. I have 26 orders done, and most of them are orders of two or three charts. That makes 49 charts, and I also bought two printed versions, so in total I own 51 charts (not to mention the non-HAED charts I have in my stash) !
How come I only finished one, and started two??? Yesterday I received a new chart, according to the new program on finishes, and at this moment I have added two beautiful designs added to my shopping cart. Am I insane or just addicted? Who can tell???
Well, I actually did stitch quite some bit this last week. I use to stitch from right to left, and on Vibrant Vista I started in the left corner. So this morning I decided to count, recount and re-recount and start in the right corner as well. I am going to work on both sides and hope both sides will meet somewhere in between LOL.

Hey Joke,

Great progress already and I have to say, I wouldn't dare to start in the other corner too. Hope they will meet at some point.
If I can be a relieve, I'm addicted to buying new stash too. I won't be able to finish all in my lifetime what I have up till now. The worst thing is that I have my own store of cross stitching and it is very hard for me not taking any stuff for myself. My own store is a very dangerous place for me.
This week I couldn't resist anymore from a pattern of Mirabilia "Cinderella". I've had it so many times in my hands that I said this week, now it is mine.

Girl! I know you wouldn't work in 2 corners if you weren't sure! So good for you, you very brave woman:) You're doing an amazing job on both! I bet your HAED (and others) collection is stash heavenly:) I agree with others, you never know when a chart will be discontinued, so we get them while we can:)

You're making great progress! Love your VV!

How brave to work in both corners. I think stash buying is a great hobby in and of itself!

Beautiful stitching. I love Vibrant Vista, and it will be lovely to see it grow. Your other work is beautiful too. :)

I think you just like most of us here both insane and addicted. I tell my DH & friends that it keeps me off the streets at night.....LOL.
I know the feeling of having a lot of charts. I know they will never be stitched in my lifetime but then one can only dream and hope.
