Well, before I even got through the front door I hear wild dog noises drifting my way. When I opened the door, Toto was spinning in a circle howling: STASH! A box of stash in fact. Well, OK, this poor stash-doggy has never seen the size of some stitchers' stash which mine pale in comparison, but he is happy.
This being Tuesday it was my yoga night, and I have to pat my oh-so-mature head for not ripping open that package right away. I would wait till I get home so I could really enjoy it. I told Toto to sit on top of the box and guard it and let no one come close. He gruffed in agreement. What a great stash-doggy.
So, here is my Stash Report. The charts are from Needlecraft Corner. I'm stock piling Prairie Schooler charts for the winter!
This second photo includes a back order from the Thread Basket - La Dame au Gateau as I like to bake (when time permits!).
The third photo is some Crescent floss from Shakepeare's Peddler. Theresa does colour conversions for some charts. She has one done for PS Autumn Leaves and I really wanted to use the overdyed floss. Now I have to see if I have the appropriate linen in my stash. I am really looking forward to stitching Autumn Leaves, maybe during the holidays!
The final photo is a shot of my small start with 'Of Female Arts'. I'm really enjoying this stitch. The WDW Cappucino floss looks wonderful against the Lakeside Linen's Vintage Light Examplar. It's too bad photos never really show you the true colours! I've been stitching with 32 count, and this linen is 28 count so it looks huge to me!
Well, frankly I'm a bit pooped from all the excitement. I'm glad to finally be able to show some photos! I have a few more PS charts coming in another week or so because a stockpile has to have more than 5 charts!
I hope you are well and enjoying the start of the Holiday season. I don't enjoy the extreme commercialism of Christmas that can get on one's nerves but I really enjoy seeing houses and trees lit up with Christmas lights, especially in these long dark days. Driving home from work in the dark is more pleasant seeing twinkling lights along the way.
Toto and I must ready now for slumber. Good night!
