It has been a super busy time since my last post. I have managed to squeeze in some evening stitching time and work on these ornaments. These 2 ornaments came from the Gift of Stitching magazine. The first one Noel, all the stitching is done I just have to do finishing part, and I will do that this evening. The next one is by Prairie Schooler and he is just so cute as always the PS Santas are. All I have to do is fill in a few areas there and do the finishing on him, hopefully I will be able to do the finishing on him tonight too.


How wonderful to come home after work and find some great stash waiting for you in your mailbox. I am so thrilled with my new goodies.
The little Houseneedleworks chart packs are so pretty and I am anxious to get them started. They come with the prettiest silks I have ever seen and the names of them are so perfect
Butterscotch-Fawn-Rouge-Icing-Beanstalk-CinnamonStick-OceanTide-BabblingBrook-Mango-Tumbleweed-Espresso-WheatGrass-BlueHeaven-PumpkinCarriage-TeddyBear-CremedeMenthe
Those are just some of the colors of the silks that have come with these first few packets.

I also ordered some new Lambswool fabric to use for some projects and I am thinking of maybe using it for these packets, even though I already ordered some Lakeside Pear Linen for them that I am waiting to arrive. I am just anxious I guess to get started stitching with these silks. The fabric next to the lambswool is called Glory and its a very pretty color. Not sure what I will use it for but does that matter, of course I just had to have it. These 3 new threads are from Threadworkx - aren't they gorgeous
They are Christmas Time - Bleeding Hearts - Hydrangea. Check out their website, their colors are so beautiful. http://www.threadworx.com/
Here is a closeup of the threads I got


That new chart is another primitive design by Lisa Rosewell at the PrimitiveNeedle thats called Witches Nine. Lisa Rosewell has lots of new Christmas designs, that are all GOTTA HAVES!!
Thank you all dear friends, for you all your lovely comments on my last post. I was so thrilled to find so many people reading my blog and admiring my work. I am so honored by everyone of you. xoxoxoxo

The ornaments are great Sharon! Glad to see you are getting some stitching time in. Nice stash haul there too, whoops, Siobhan said the same thing! Wasn't copying you GF! "Haul" just seems to be the appropriate word for that pile of stash.

Great stash! I think you can never go wrong with LHN! That Noel was quite popular...I stitched it as well and I keep seeing it pop up on a blog.
