Huge stash fest!

I have to admit, I went off the wagon once since my vowing not to buy stash … and it’s all Ashleigh’s fault – Ash put some of her stash up for sale on Ebay, and I fell in love with the Friendship Sampler by Aion Designs, plus a couple of other charts … they arrived today – so when I took photos of my stash haul over the last week or two that adds up to a HUGE stash haul … part of it was from a SB&B backorder, plus another Ebay win for Victoria Sampler kits I won previously but forgot to post about, as well as my order from Elegant Stitches. I’ve taken piccies of everything … it’s a good job I’m now on the wagon!!! (although I still have the one order I’m waiting for from SB&B) … it’s amazing what one extra pay packet can make – and one reason this is the last stash, as it’s back on my limited budget again … b*gger! πŸ™‚

Dunno whether you’ll be able to blow up the piccie, so I’ll put the contents underneath each piccie.

Paradigm Lost – Long Dog Samplers; Vineyard Sampler – Periwinkle Promises; Joy – Lizzie*Kate; Friendship Sampler – Aion Designs; Red Lace Sewing Case – Drawn Thread; Attic Collection – Just a Thought; Buzz ‘n’ Round Glasses Case – Keepsake Stitches.

Summer Hearts – Wendy K C Designs; Bees’ Garden – Wendy K C Designs; The Lavender Rose Sewing Case – Fancy Work (plus fabric and silks I didn’t have); 4 Wishes – Just Nan; Snow Faces – Just Nan; High Hopes – Just Nan; 2005 Limited Edition Here Comes Santa Claus – Prairie Schooler

Who’s Hiding in the Garden? series – Patricia Ann Designs (originally for my RR, but it didn’t turn up in time to be considered); lambswool and lavender bliss linens and threads I needed; Thread rings – Kelmscott Designs; Lavender Sachet – The Victoria Sampler; September birthday needleroll – The Victoria Sampler (don’t want September, I just love the colours LOL); Happy Mothers Day – The Victoria Sampler (sent free with an Ebay win); Lisianthus Accessory Pocket (for a Clover cutter) – Periwinkle Promises; Simple Elegance – a Working Needle Book – Just a Thought

So, anyone want to come over and fondle? πŸ˜‰ No more now (apart from my SB&B back order and the 2006 JCS ornie issue when it comes out) at least until my birthday in February!!! And if I break that rule, you’re welcome to come over personally and give me a public flogging … but I have to admit, I can’t wait to get stitching on this lot! … usually I receive my goodies and I get a ‘ho-hum’ feeling, but I just love everything I’ve been receiving recently! πŸ˜€

Rightio, enough putting off the inevitable … I have to put a few stitches in this racing car block … if nothing else, I might try to finish the backstitching in the one car tonight – have to admit, I’m really tired tonight after work, so that’s probably why I’m taking the time to blog my stash haul … but I can’t put it off any longer! (I didn’t actually realise this design was based on actual cars – I’ve learnt something new overnight! LOL)

  1. Stitchers only get flogged with a yard long piece of 6 ply floss. You have some great stuff there. A friend has stitched and framed the Paradigm Lost piece and it is tremdenous! I’m waiting for a skein of overdyed silk from Needlepoint silk. I ran out on the last part of the 6 part Quaker Sampler.

  2. Oh, drool! Those are some fantastic designs! I don’t blame you for falling off the wagon. This qualifies falling off and lighting a torch to it! lol! Can’t wait to see your pieces.

  3. **thud** Anne I wish I were nearer, I would love to come over and drool. You have some very nice pieces there. Enjoy! Have a nice weekend.

  4. *putting hand up to fondle*

    I’ll fondle anyone’s stash, yours, mine, anybody’s! I’m not fussy….

    I’ll show you mine if you show me yours…

  5. ANNE!! LOL! Wow, what great stash! I must admit, I was tempted by Ash’s ebay listings too. Is Paradigm Lost from her? I think that’s one of the two things I was looking at! πŸ™‚
