Some new stash

My recent order from Silkweavers was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday afternoon. Thanks partly to Christmas gift certificate from a dear friend, I had a little splurge on some fabric I had on my wish list for ages.

32ct Belfast Purely Primitive
32ct Belfast Days Gone By - for Passione Ricarmo's A Christmas Spirit
Zweigart 32ct Vintage Belfast Country Mocha - for LHN's Coffee Menu
Zweigart 28ct Taupe - Drawn Thread's Welcome Spot
Zweigart 32ct Putty - Drawn Thread's Perennial Border

This piccie (not such a good one today) also shows a couple of other goodies I ordered from my not so close LNS before the owner went on her trip to Nashville - I'm looking forward to finding out what she lovely charts she's brought home with her :) Anyways, I got the Sweetheart Tree's To Have and To Hold Bridal Sampler which I'm intending to stitch for friends getting married in October, a skein of Thread Gatherer's Aegean Twilight for this freebie, and some Mill Hill beads off my wish list.

Tonight I'm going to start Spot of Summer, the first of my 2006 "Drawn Thread Thursday" projects. Cathy is going to join me by stitching Spot of Winner as a SAL on the Friends Gather Board so if anyone else is keen, you are more than welcome to join us too.

PS: I might just have a happy dance to share tomorrow, only a few beads to go on Celtic Winter, yay!

Great stash Katrina! I love Purely Primitive and Days Gone By, they're very versatile colours.

I like your idea of Drawn Thread Thursdays - I've stitched the spots, but I'm sure I can find some more DT pieces in my stash to join in with.

Lovely fabrics! I hope you'll start Coffee Menu soon - it's one of my favourite LHNs :)

And thanks for the freebie link. Yet another to add to the pile to do :)

I'm going to pull out Spot of Winter tonight...this will be fun! You made a lovely haul today!

Me again - it just occurred to me that your Thursday evening is the same as my Wednesday evening (almost anyway!) I almost never have time to stitch on Thursdays due to another commitment (church choir), but if I stitch on Wednesdays it will be like we're doing it at the same time. Cool, huh?
