Deciding on a pattern is the hardest part for me. There's just so much to choose from! It's rare that I find a pattern that just screams that I must use it right now. I even picked out a pattern for the quilt for our bed, then months later when I looked at it, I went nah, that's not what I want anymore. I do that with swaps too though. I find a pattern that I want to make & then it doesn't work with the fabrics I bought for one reason or another. Then I end up buying fabric that will work and there goes more in the stash!
