New stash has arrived!

The order I was waiting on finally arrived in the mail today. There was a package waiting at my door when I got home from work. I was so glad to see it as it has taken just over two weeks to get to my address. It's come from a different part of the US than I usually order from, so that may be the reason. The shop I bought it from is in Pennsylvania. This is a state in the US I would love to visit someday. The countryside and Amish people would be so fascinating. Anyway, enough of this gabble. Here's all the things I got...

Atalie - Pochette a ciseaux Centauree chart
L'atelier des Fees brodeuses - Tea Time In A Stitcher's Garden chart
Une fee dans mon jardin - Fairy Rose Garden Stitcher's Treasure chart
Les Creations de Chrystelle - Cote Couture chart
Tournicoton - Petite Pause chart
Tralala Collection - La Maison au Chat chart
Tralala Collection - Maisons De Campagne chart
Tournicoton - Delicieux Jardin
Les Creations de Chrystelle - Magnet Chocolat chart
Some fat quarters of fabric and Les fils Pomme de Pin cotton thread in Au coin du feu
Tralala Collection - Jour de cueillette chart
Tralala Collection - Mere Noel chart
Tralala Collection - Dans mon jardin chart
Tralala Collection - Un ange passe... chart
Tralala Collection - Gardienne de chats chart

I also got some buttons and rose pins.

As you can see these charts aren't from American designers. They're mainly French with the odd one from Belgium from memory. I did buy them from the US though. A place called The Thread Basket. Valerie runs the shop and gives terrific service. She responds to emails quickly and will help you with anything (even translation with the charts). If there's anyone interested in these designs and they live in the US, then I recommend you buy them through The Thread Basket. I'm not sure if there's any other places that sell these French patterns in the US. You may have to do some hunting.

I really like the Chocolat design, it's so cute.
Like all the stash items I buy, I'm not sure when I'll get around to stitching them up, but at least the patterns are there for the time I get the urge to do them.

Hi Jane,

That is some stash! Lucky you! I have recently discovered and purchased some Tralala charts myself. They are lovely. I see other designers I haven't seen before - the Chocolat is really cute. Thanks for sharing them - now I will have to go to The Thread Basket to have a look. I purchased my Tralala charts from Leena/Volarium. Have fun stitching!
