Market Stash

I was so excited to arrive home and find packages on my porch! One was my school books - not much fun there but, the other was from Theresa at Shakespeare's Peddler. Lots of wonderful goodies to stitch! I plan to spend some time this weekend kitting them up.

Joyeux Noel (BBD), Sarah Woodham (SP) Jenny Bean's Halloween (SP), & Jenny Bean's Pin Tuffet

Christmas at Hawk Run (CHS), A Bird In Hand (LaDDa), Needles & Pins (MN), & In The Garden (MN)

I traded w/Nicole and received this lovely chart - I hope to start on this one soon as I just love this pattern.

Elizabeth Savilles 1841
Fingerworks

My new stitching friend (from church) Barbara called last week and said that she received two of these magazines in the mail and would I like to have one - what an unexpected blessing.

And last (but definitely not least), my sweet Smokie...
I didn't have time to iron my Learning Girl Sampler this morning but will take pictures of her soon to show. Now the fun dilemma of deciding which project to begin next - so many great new things to choose from! Speaking of new projects, has everyone seen what Theresa plans to work on next? An A&E Sampler - I am so excited!

Thanks for all the lovely comments - it's such a pleasure to check in on my blog and see that someone has visited and left me a note.

Hope your day is full of stitching.

Oh Cari - I love all your stash. You've got some great ones there. Which one will you start first? I think that I'd have a hard time figuring out which one!

Oh isn't stash mail such fun? I'm slowly getting stash from market in as well. And loving it! lol! I know what you're saying about deciding what to work on next -- it's a hard predicament, isn't it? I can't wait to see your finished Learning Girl Sampler. It's so pretty!

Woo! Talk about a great stash haul! Isn't it nice to come home to something like that? I can't wait to see what you decide to work on next. :)

I have had Elizabeth Savilles kitted up and ready to go since last summer. It is such a pretty sampler.
