Stash, stash and more stash!

It is so difficult to look at cross stitch web sites without thinking I ‘d like that and so.... these last few days it lead me to ebay. Wahooooo and we all know where that will lead..STASH !!
I found some cross stitch and hand dyed fabric all advertised by Sandra and so the bidding started I really wanted a DMC kit, ‘Lavender in a Pot’ and Just Nan, ‘Catnip Tea’ I haven't ever stitched a Just Nan design before and SS are having a Just Nan SAL  so I might just join in the fun.
With the Just Nan chart, which had the beads needed, Sandra had generously included the two HD floss' that are needed for the design. The hand dyed 28c linen is gorgeous (or lush in Stacy's words, I do miss that programme!) One is a  pale lemony colour and the other a sort of Lavender shade.


Of course when you have a lot of  charts, which I now have, (although not as many as some!!) you need the fabric and this 10 lots of fat quarters even weave
was a real bargain so how could I resist. Aren't the colours fab!!



I didn’t get the DMC kit which I really, really, really wanted.. so I just thought I ‘d look around and wow I found the very same kit and I got it for a fraction of the price it should be. Such excitement I rushed home today from my Writing Group session just to make sure my highest bid hadn’t been topped, and I am now waiting for its delivery!

And to go with the fabric are some DMC threads from my trusted seller Kat who's prices and  service is second to none.

I have had such a busy few days buying all this, that I have had to sit quietly and stitch to recover!

WOW lots of nice stash, you'll soon be addicted to the Just Nans, they have that effect on people.

Still not decided on my colour choice for the Isabell SAL, but i think we better make a start this month, so i'll make a final choice this week and hopefully have a progress pic later in the month. How much are you hoping to get done in a month??
