Stitching and stashing.....

I had a great day stitching, stashing and snacking with Amy and Nicole!  Both are working on amazing projects....Amy's "Heaven Doth Ask" is amazing and she is soooo close to
being finished and Nicole's "Anniversaries of the Heart" piece is just so pretty that it makes me want to stitch them all too!

I worked on one of my Challenge pieces...

 Blackbird Designs "Moon Garden"

Hope to get a lot done on this one next month so I can get a finish!!!!  My plan was to work on Frederick, but quickly realized my 40 year old eyes can't handle this on weeknights!  So...this is my weekend project. 


CHS "Frederick"

So far I have Fred....and hope to have most
of 'erick finished next weekend!

 Now on the the good stuff....


I think the goodies from market were better than I expected and I had to show great restraint not to buy it all!  I did pick up the must have BBD "A Stitcher's Journal" and a few other pieces. 


But then we discovered DSL's Carriage House
Samplings stash and I went a little crazy! 
Amy had a great selection and I could
have easily picked up many more I would
love to have!  I definitely showed restraint here!!!  If you are looking for any of the CHS designs, you may want to try DSL....Amy has a great selection!

I received a nice surprise in the mail last weekend
from MaggeeI loved her Spring Sampler finish
and mentioned I didn't realize there was such a
thing! She was nice enough to RAK me
with the design.  Stitchers are just the best
....thanks Maggee!

  3. I love your progress on Moon Garden. And I laughed when I saw your BBD stash purchase because every one of those is on my Market wish list! So it's true that great minds think alike...

    Me and my friend sari are just planning our first time to order some stash from The States.

    Could you, please,
    suggest us some good on-line shops we do not know any but 123-Stitch?
