AT LAST . . . . A STASH UPDATE!


Well better late than never! ~ Although my visit to The Stitch & Craft Show was 4 weeks ago I can now show you the damage the credit card did that day . . .

Anchor 'Benjamin Bunny' kit and 'Chicken Sampler' kit by The Stitching Shed

I stitched 'Cluck Cluck' by The Stitching Shed last year which is still waiting to be made up into a cushion but thought the Chicken Sampler would make a nice matching pair (eventually!)

Wooden hearts which can have small photos in or I'm thinking stitched hearts plus 2 heart hangers


Various fabrics in both 28 and 32 count, some hand-dyed

10 Gloriana Silks in adorable shades of Bordeaux, Cobblestone, Dried Pink Rose, RainForest, Elm, Green Tea, Taupe, Wood Pond, Cafe au Lait and Fallen Leaves

I've never stitched with these threads before but those of you that have will know just the softness of them is enough to make you go weak (bunny-like) let alone the temptious names!


Heart in Hand 'Little House in the Woods' and Bent Creek 'Season's Greetings' charts


Little House Needleworks 'The Mercantile' and 'Be Merry ~ Belle Pepper' charts

Little House Needleworks 'Frosty Flakes' and Trail Creek Farm 'Love my Bunny' charts

The Cricket Collection 'Spring Fleece' chart

Twisted Threads 'Gingham Hearts'

'You must be joking!', I hear you all say 'after all the fuss she made stitching Gingham Bunny'?
Oh, I know BUT I do still have some of the required fabby left and I do like hearts and well because!



'No Rabbit charts???'



Sisters and Best Friends 'Over The Moon Spring Bunny' (thanks to a fellow blogger's stash for sale list!)


Little House Needleworks 'Herb Garden' (complete with little brown hare) chart

So, what to stitch first???  Benjamin Bunny of course and washed and currently drying in this afternoon's sunshine with fabby and buttons ready for the usual pillow finish tomorrow . . . .


Hope you're all having a lovely relaxing stitchy weekend? 
Thanks for stopping by
