Silver Needle Stash ~ Sneak Peek!

OK, here's something to tantalise your taste buds and will leave you drooling. I'm going to show you a sneak peek of my Silver Needle New Year's Eve Sale order.


There's hidden treasures underneath what you can see, but you'll have to wait a bit longer to get a glimpse of everything I ordered. It arrived in the mail today and it's something I look forward to receiving every year. I've been placing an order with them on New Year's Eve for the past four or five years. I usually get things that can be hard to order through other needlework shops since The Silver Needle site is so comprehensive. Plus they allow the discount on everything in the shop so I can always be guaranteed of getting some Shepherd's Bush kits/charts. I was also able to get a Jill Rensel SB mat for a piece I have stitched a number of years back. I'm so pleased with it and I'll show you some pictures when I get the chance.

I also wanted to thank you for your compliments on my photos and stitching. Some of you are under the impression I have finished Summer Iris. Sorry, but I still have a little to go on it. Though this will mean I'll have more photos to show when I do finish it!

As for my photo presentation, there's always room for improvement. I'm just wanting to try a few different ways to present them to make it more interesting. It enables me to bring out my creative side too.

Just to reply to your comments about my last post: Susan, my photo collages are done through Picasa software. There's a link in my sidebar if you're interested in downloading it. Let me know if you need any help with it. Melissa, I'm still deciding what my next project will be. It may be a Ewe Eye & Friends chart (you'll know which one) but I just have to make a final decision on the threads.

Thanks again for you kindhearted comments. I get such delight in reading them. Have a happy week with needle in hand!

'morning, stash queen Jane! Did you do a little dance when the box (or was that 'crate') arrived? Looking forward to seeing more!

As to your photo presentation, I think we all want a tutorial! BIG wink ;-)

You're off to a good start to the week with stash. I am hoping some of mine will arrive this week too! Talk more later!

I'm drooling all over your stash and I don't even know what all is in that pile. But what I see looks great! Lots of hours of happy stitching!
