Stash, Glorious Stash!!

After the rough month we've had, AND finally finishing the wedding sampler (I'll post another pic of it when it's finished being framed!), I decided to treat myself to a bit of stashing. What a wonderful time I had!!! :) The hardest part was in deciding just how much (or how little), I could afford to stimulate the economy.
I settled on just a few "must-haves" - but I am SO happy with my choices. I got "Home of a Needleworker", "Bless This Home", Lizzie Kate's new "tea" designs, (I'm a shoe-in for anything tea!) and a cute Heinzit "Flip Flop" pattern that will be perfect in one of our powder rooms that has a "beach" theme. Unfortunately, I had to place an order for three other designs that were "out of stock" and some specialty flosses that I need - but hey, that will give me an excuse to go back and fondle some more when I pick up that order, right? Life is good!! :) :) :)
My needle is itching to stitch - so I'll keep this short! Thanks for the comments - I really appreciate your time and kindness! Also, keep up the lovely works on your blogs - I love visiting!!!!

Happy Stashing and Stitching!

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for visiting my blog!! and for taking the time to comment!! So sorry to hear about your Ian. What a blessing that his regular Pediatritian caught what was going on.
That's God's doing!!

Love your embroidery! I learned to embroidery when I was a little girl. Haven't done it in years. Bought a machine and it's in the repair shop. Maybe I should start back doing it by hand. Where do I start?? Where can one buy some unique pillow cases etc??

Your wedding sampler is lovely. Congrats on the finish. Look forward to seeing the framed piece.
