Stash Report

Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend :) Thank you for all the great comments about the Mermaids, they mean alot to me. I was so happy with how they turned out, especially after all the beading which I thought would never end, lol.

On Saturday I went out for the day with a bunch of friends from my stitching group to visit a few of the LNS's around our area. Our first stop was the Quilter's Cabin, which was just amazing, with all the different fabrics it was quite hard to make a selection. I could have wandered around in there all day, each time seeing a different fabric or a wall hanging, or pattern that I hadn't noticed before. Then it was onto the next LNS, where I found a few Prairie Schooler charts in the bargin bin. At lunchtime we all went our separate ways to look a few shops in Napier before heading to another LnS. I was very refrained at this one only buying some beading thread :) The last of our stops for the day was at Heirlooms. Heirlooms operates from a beautiful old villa that is currently being restored. I was in cross stitch heaven there, it was just divine and I only wish I had thought to take my camera so I could have shared some photos. Sherelyn, the owner, also has a room set aside for all things Christmas, just beautiful. I could have stayed there all day and all night.

Here's all my new goodies!

The Workbasket - Quaker Odds and Quaker Evens
Indigo Rose - the Beecharmer
Sweetheart Tree - Don't Bug me when I'm stitching
JBW Designs - Ring Pillow chart
GAST Threads - latest releases
Prairie Schooler - Farm Fresh, two Santa charts
NN threads - British Green and Passions

Everyone thorougly enjoyed their day out, especially since it was a warm sunny day in Napier.

I have had a couple of small finishes over the weekend but two are for exchanges - an ornament and a biscornu, so I won't be able to share pics until another time. This is my ornament for April, Christmas Greetings by Elizabeth Designs.

Those Mirabilia designs do have a lot of beads, don't they? Seems like she adds more and more as the years go on, and the designs become more complex.

Your ornie finish is lovely. Nice work!

Some lovely stash there and a nice finish, also your mermaids are gorgeous.

I've just been wandering around your blog. I thought I'd read the archives but suppose I'd only gone back a month or so. While waiting for the kids to stir I decided to start at the beginning. LOL You are gorgeous and your wedding was so beautiful. I love the colors that you chose. I am so happy that I had time to wander around this morning. :)
