What Does A Girl Need?

MORE STASH!!!!

More? I hear you say. Yes, more! This lot is from Needlecraft Corner that I ordered last month. No, there's nothing from the recent market releases unfortunately (I'm trying to hold off on those) but a few bits and pieces I wanted to get.

First up are some charts. Some of them aren't available everywhere, so I was happy to get them.

NOTFORGOTTEN FARM - Dirty Snowmen
PLUM STREET SAMPLERS - Sophie's Sheep
NOTFORGOTTEN FARM - Ah, 'Tis Spring

LITTLE HOUSE NEEDLEWORKS - Fresh Watermelon, and Bee Sampler

Next up are threads. These ones are for a project I'll be doing soon. The clue is in one of the charts above.


OK, you guessed it.


Then some linens.


The top three WDW are 35ct with the Belfast being 32ct. The Beige has the slightest bit of a green tone to it if anything. It's only an undertone so not too obvious and it's a better colour than I thought it would be. The Linen has come up a bit pinkish in the photo, which it's not. It's an off-white colour and the same I'm doing BK&BT on. I love it and wanted more on hand. The other two I didn't get for any particular project but there will be ones where I'll need a blue coloured fabric for them. Don't they look scrumptious?


And lastly, a couple of Wildflowers threads which were being cleared out at a good discount.

WILDFLOWERS - Rose Quartz (top), and Rose Blush

So a bit of a mixture of things there. I know I always like seeing other peoples stash when they show it on their blogs, so that's why I like to show mine. You sometimes see something you hadn't before. I love those little discoveries.

Latest on BK&BT - it's finished! Yes, I stitched the last stitches today. The man and woman have eyes now and I'll show you pictures of it tomorrow. I'm going to get back to Angel In Your Heart next and hopefully it won't take much longer to complete.

Til tomorrow ~ happy stitching and stashing!

Great stash! Those fabrics are wonderful. I want to do that Notforgotten piece as a hooked rug. My teacher converted it and it's wonderful. But I like the stitched model just as well.

Stash is always great to see no matter whose it is. I'm still trying to work up to pictures for my blog as I finally have the camera. Everyone takes such wonderfully artful pictures I don't know if I can do the same but will try.
I love your fabric choices.
Happy Stitching!

Great stash ! you're right, we (stitchers) haven't enough linen, threads, charts... to stitch!
When I go to a LNS, I always see something I haven't & that I must have!
Sorry for my bad english but I'll try to better next time.
Take care & happy stitching.
