Stash Acquisitions

Here are some pics from the 'road trip' to the Golden Needle. I think I have too many Shepherd's Bush pieces...but I always buy more and love every one of them. Here are Holly and Ivy, Glad Heart and Quaker Heart. I also picked up Yule Sampler by The Primitive Needle. I love Lisa's designs.

I already had embroidered this piece and found this barnwood red frame. I think it's perfect.

Here are the fabrics I procured. All are 40 count Lakeside Linen and all are a stitchers half. Left to right: Vintage Winter Sky, Vintage Magnolia, Misty Rain, and Vintage Buttercream. The photos do not do these fabrics justice. They are BEAUTIFUL. Do I have a specific plan for them...of course not....but I will.

These are Erica Michaels designs on 40 count gauze. I had so much fun I stitching the Valentine one I wanted to do another. I couldn't decide which one so I got these. Mother always said, 'If one is nice, ten are FABULOUS". Didn't want to disappoint!
So ladies...I'm off to do some decorating in the Sisters Bedroom. They'll be here next Wednesday!! LET THE PARTY BEGIN!

Oh Cari! I love love love all your new stash and I'm especially loving the Erica Michaels charts. My fingers are itching to stitch one of them but like you I love them all!!

I'm torn about the 40 count fabric though. Love lakeside linens, love the look of the 40 count, hate having to stretch it!! Beautiful colors though!

Oh I love your stash!!! And your LNS has so many 40ct fabrics?! Wow! I wish I had that kind of place around me! Yummy! Did you see the new Erica Michaels 40ct gauze piece, Time and Season? I love it! I also love that To Thee My Heart one you have -- not sure if I've ever seen that one. Have to try this out sometime! Now you have to share your sisters time together -- have a great time! It's so much fun to see how close you all are!
