Oh no! Not more stash!!!

Oops, I did it again... as the song goes. Yes, I've got some more stash in the mail. Believe it or not, I just wanted to get some threads for Quaker Garden which I'm going to work on next. One insight about me though - I never end up getting just threads! This is what I got...

BENT CREEK - The Big Tree kit

BLACKBIRD DESIGNS - Be Kind and True & Maude Eloise 1891 charts

THE SAMPLER COMPANY - Kind Fond Love & HOMESPUN ELEGANCE - Bee Watchers charts

CCN - Raspberry Patch
LHN - Plant Kindness, Nature's Beauty, Blackbird Inn, Rose Sampler, Schoolgirl Lessons, and ABC123 charts

Oh yes, and those threads I wanted, plus a few more! There's also a piece of Vintage Lentil Lakeside Linen 28ct underneath.

Needlecraft Corner had 25% off everything I ordered, and not being able to resist a sale, I had to make it worth my while.:) You'd think I'd have enough stash, but no, there's always more things you discover you want.

I'm looking forward to starting on Quaker Garden. The threads I received for it look terrific. Sometimes you get the recommended threads for a design and they turn out a different shade to what you're expecting, but these ones look pretty similar to what you see in the chart. There's only five different colours in the pattern too.

BLACKBIRD DESIGNS - Quaker Garden (kitted with 32ct Permin Linen Prairie Grain, along with WDW & GAS threads).

I'm hoping to get some stitching time in tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Jane, I think you should change your blog name to 'Jane ~ the Queen of Stash' I love seeing what the postie brings you. It is always a substantial package. :)

Great new stash Jane. I have just finished Be Kind and True and I enjoyed it all apart from house, which if I did it again, I would stitch the cream before the wine.

Jane! What a great stash!!
I also have Be kind and true by BBD, it's a beautiful chart, isn't it!
I want to stitch it one day!
