I really must control myself

OK, even I admit I went way too overboard with my last stash buy. It's my order from Needlecraft Corner for my birthday month (February). I'm not even going to show you all I got because it's too embarrassing (though if you hunt around a bit you may find some pictures in my albums). Anyway, it arrived yesterday and here's some of what I got.


I finally got Mirabilia's Ring Around The Rose Tree kitted. Such a pretty design but I'm not sure when I'll start it. I've also seen lately on Dovile and Loreta's blogs their finishes of Prairie Moon's The Queen Of Hearts. This has inspired me to get it, all kitted up too. Still deciding about the fabric colour though. There's also some charts from LA D DA and Homespun Elegance.

What you're not seeing are charts by LHN and CCN which I ordered as well. I love these designers and I did get quite a few of their patterns. I also got some bits of fabric for the JCS 2008 Ornaments magazine to make up various ornaments from it.

I didn't get a chance to stitch yesterday so today I'm feeling like getting into it. I'll work some more on Potting Shed and see how I go. I'm really enjoying working on it and I like the different stitching techniques it has throughout it too.

Jane, thank you for your kind comments. I am particularly pleased to hear that from you.

Several years ago, I told myself: I do not drink alkogol and I do not smoke, so I can afford such expensive entertainment....
Now, increasingly, I think: It would be much cheaper if I drank alcohol and smoking... :))))))

(sjrry for my terrible English:)

What a lovely purchase! I think it's great you treated yourself, and you should never apologize for your own stitching stash! :p I agree with another poster--awesome choices. I love them all.
