Happy Day

Don't you love it when the doorbell rings and you find all these packages on your front porch that wouldn't fit in the mailbox?
Here's the latest stash enhancement including handmade soaps nesting in the bird bath. I love the two new designs from The Goode Huswife and of course, the Blackbird girls have outdone themselves, once again, with Honeysuckle Manor!
New Birds of a Feather - Happy Hearts and my second copy of 'With These Hands'. I thought I already had this one but couldn't find it.....until this copy arrived. One of the sisters may be getting this in their gift bag!
A new candle and these cute pettifore pincushion patterns. While cleaning out our parents house last year my sisters and I divided up Mom's tiny tart tins. Now we can fill them with healthy no-fat treats!
Finally - I picked this up this book my yarn store. If you love quilt patterns, and crochet or knit, you will love this book! In my opinion it is a 'Must Have'.

Stay tuned - the next update will be from THE SISTER'S STITCHING RETREAT!! I'm getting so excited! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Ooooh, Cari! Great stash! I got the BBD book as well and just love it. In fact, I also ordered some fabric and the threads and will start it.... soon! Love all your other books, too and can't wait to see a tart pincushion.
Have a wonderful weekend, you fabulous girl, you!

Honeysuckle Manor is awesome! So many cute charts in there. We got our cupcake bases in the other day, they were sold out at Market. Too cute!

Love the rest of the stash too! Now to find time to stitch it all, that's my problem. It really stinks to be the slowest stitcher in the universe.:(

Oh how I love to get the mail..unless there are bills! So stinkin' fun to get packages at the door!

I see your new floors!

Oh...I'm getting the pee-pee shivers just thinking about our retreat! Heehee!

Great stash, Cari! It's such an adrenaline rush, isn't it? Especially when you get not one, not two, but three packages!

I will have to check out those tart pincushions! I've wanted to try my hand at making pincushions lately! Which shop did you buy the pattern from?

Hello Ms. Fabulous! Great new stash and I love the pincushion pattern. Hope you have a delightful time with the Sisters. Smiles....

Wonderful stash Cari! Any day that the UPS or Postman comes bearing gifts is a good day (unless you have my postman who makes a big deal about the fact that he has to walk up and bring it to the door). Anyway, you have great tastes in stash! Love all of it and can't wait to see some of those pincushions!!

What wonderful stash! Love the little tart pincushions! So dang cute.
I've ordered Honeysuckle Manor too. I haven't seen it yet, and I'm dying! Let me know how you like the good huswife book. I've been eyeing that one.
So much fun! I'm thrilled for you.
Hugs.

Wow, what great stash, Cari!! Great taste. I had to laugh at your not finding your book till the replacement arrives--isn't that always the way?!

Enjoy your weekend! I can't wait to hear all about it.
