New stash to show

As mentioned in my last post I received some new stash in the mail the other day. It was my order from The Silver Needle's New Year's Eve sale.

Most things arrived, with the odd item out of stock which I'll have to try to order next time. Mum wanted me to get some things for her as well. Here's a pic of our order...

Silver Needle NYE Order - arrived 15 January 2009

From that, this is what I got...

BENT CREEK ~ Big Zipper Kit #7 Enjoy
SHEPHERD'S BUSH ~ Queen Sheep and Glad Tidings Kits
HILLSIDE SAMPLINGS ~ Folk Art Hornbook Kit
SHEPHERD'S BUSH ~ Jolly Green Jute Bag Kit
COUNTRY COTTAGE NEEDLEWORKS ~ Sweet Treats #3, 4, 5, & 6 Threadpacks

I also got the Kelmscott Love Scissors which I've seen a number of people have, and think they're cute. I missed out on the SB Glad Tidings Fob Kit and Bent Creek Big Zipper #6 Kit (The Tire Swing). These I'll try to get again next time.

The Folk Art Hornbook I've wanted for ages, so I'm happy to have finally got it. I've now got all series in the CCN Sweet Treats. Just need some fabric for that one which I haven't decided what colour yet. And I can't do an order without including at least one SB item. :) They are still my favourite designers and I adore their kits. Queen Sheep is so cute that I couldn't resist adding it to my stash. Glad Tidings is one of their new Christmas kits, and Jolly is a pre-made jute bag kit which you just stitch the design on the front.

I'm laughing at some of your comments lately where I seem to be recruiting a few new Shepherd's Bush fans. I should be getting commission from them! Honestly though, I'm just so happy to let people know how wonderful their things are. I do love their new 2009 Scissor Fob. This you have to order direct from SB. Might just have to do an order with them one day!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing what new things I've added to my stash. I know it's exciting to see what you all get. Hope you have a great weekend and keep stitching those adorable projects.

Great items! You don't have to recruit me-I'm a huge fan of SB, lol. The many kits in my craft closet prove it! You're gonna have fun with that stuff!
