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

So, anyone want to come over and fondle? 😉 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! 😀
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)
