My little stash June 5, 2009

Now that I’ve got everything set up I can now show you a few more of the things I bought on my visit to Polstitches with Sandra and other additions to my slowly growing stash. Lots of pics here so just keep scrolling.

First are the fabric grab bags and some scissors and threads



Next are a few small charts which took my fancy for quick stitches at some time in the future although at the moment I have hardly picked up a needle with the projects I’ve already started. You know I can’t resist cats but I did pick up a “doggy” one for a change.

This one is Sebastian Rose by Marilyn Robertson


Next – Santa Paws from The Margaret Shelly Collection


… and a chart called Dog Lovers by Lizzie Kate


As you know I recently bought a book called Chats au point de croix and have had an idea about stitching these designs but I will blog on this once I’ve started as I haven’t quite fully decided on what I am doing.

When I visited Sandra earlier this month these are some of the fabrics she gave me for the project, lots of different colours and types of fabric which will be great for me to try out. I kept them all in their bags as I know I would have only mixed them all up if I’d taken them out!


And finally some more stash from Sandra – aren’t I the lucky one having a sister with a massive stash 🙂 She sorted out some particular type of colours that I wanted and the postie delivered these the other day


These are all threads I’ve never used before including some lovely silks which I’m looking forward to trying so thanks again Sandra.

It’s a bit cooler here today and I have to go into work for a few hours later at the local Vet so I think I will just sit outside for a while and read. I picked up Twighlight by Stephenie Meyers on Wednesday and have almost finished it I just can’t it down. I’ve got the next three books in the sequel on order so I hope these come soon so I can read them in a continuous flow.

Hope you have a good weekend and the rain stays away. Bye for now 🙂

About time we got to see some pics 😉 You should have enough to keep you going there for a while, but that never seems to stop us buying more! I have all the Twilight books, if you need to borrow them let me know.

It’s great to see some pics of your very healthy looking stash! Looks like you bought some lovely hand-dyed fabric and threads at Polstitches and what with all the fabric and threads Sandra has given you you’re well set to stitch some wonderful designs. Look forward to seeing your ideas for the Marie-Thérèse Saint-Aubin cat silhouettes – funnily enough I was flicking through my copy the other day but there are simply too many to choose from ^^

oh…i am soooo envious of your handdyed fabrics. Wish we have that kind of grab bag over or atleast those kind of fabrics. Enjoy stitching on them.
