And now, it's 61 degrees outside and we've got this..
Everything is just greening up. I was going to prune my 25 year old rose bush but have misplaced my pruners. So here I am and now you probably want to see my progress on WIPs. Here we go..
Blackie Pin Cushion by Homespun Elegance got more body and the tree, and leaves. I thought I had a before picture but I don't.
Here's Holiday Samplings II by Homespun Elegance also..
That last diamond at the right is where the end is so its not too big.
And I finally picked up an older WIP, Blackwater Hollow Sampler by Stacy Nash..
I have more that I stitched on but I'll save those for another day.
And I stashed!
The extent of my Market buys..for now! I have my eye on a chart from Lindsay Lane, two from Country Stitches, one from PSS but they'll have to wait.
These came from Needlecraft Corner in their Clearance section for half off so disregard the prices on the two Stacy Nashes! Bee in your Bonnet is going to be the perfect summer stitch. And I can't pass up anything Scary so there ya go!
These came from a stash sale put on by the owner of the blog Cozy Egg for her friend. I looked for it again but it looks like the sale is over. I bought the Smokey Pearl linen for the Frosty Forest charts (thanks Jeannie!) but I'm not real sure of the color now.
I think I have enough new stash now!
Couple posts ago Jo of Serendipitous Stitching asked me if I had a lot of fabric for finishing..
That's all of it! Plus other Halloween fabric in the green box below. I feel about fabric like I do stash, I have to rein myself in. A lot of it though are remnants that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, and Joanne's.
While I'm at it, here's my trims..
All of this is in my tall plastic storage tower. And I have more because Victorian Motto had a Primitive trims package for sale so I bought!
While doing some cleaning, I came across some 14ct Aida. Who would like them? If more than one person would like them, I'll draw names next Saturday. Unfortunately, I can't ship overseas or Canada, just the US.
Steel Grey, Williamsburg Blue, and Fiddlers.
Well, I believe that's it. Hope the pictures aren't too blurry. I haven't touched my Gifted Gorgeousness yet so I need to get going on that. I have not bought fabric for the Glendon Place Desserts SAL put on by Brenda from Stitch Haven so I need to take care of that. At the same time, I ask myself..Do I really need a new start?! We'll see. I may be raring to go when the 2nd post comes up for the SAL in April!
I'm enjoying your comments! A big WELCOME to the new followers on Bloglovin and here. Take care!
