OK, so as promised in my last post, here's my recent additions to the ever-growing  draw, cupboard, room, garage, extra house, alright, several cupboards of stash . . .

28, 30 and 32 count assorted linens all suitable for ornaments and small pillows
'Glad Tidings' kit by Shepherds Bush

'Salem Sisters' by Plum Street Samplers with threads

'Christmas Trees II', 'Chickadee', '2004 Santa', 'Is It Too Late?' and 'Be Kind' charts

DMC, Gloriana & Crescent Colour threads, mouse felt kit & finishing touches

something to store those 'finishing touches' in!

in the stash box at last ~ so wanted these when they were first published

couldn't resist this scrapbooking punch especially as my blog comments are called 'bunny hops'

I'm holding my hands up, YES! I am totally 100% guilty of self-indulgence and excessive over-spending BUT DH did say I could, maybe in moderation, but he DID say I could!

And to sort of make up for my guilty sins I do hereby pledge to only stitch from my stash and all those stitches will be Winter or Christmas themed  (apart from the Salem Sisters chart, just cannot resist that one!) . . .

I have listed the charts/kits in my sidebar and as you can see from the pic below there is more than enough to keep me going for the whole year which is my excuse for keeping the Christmas countdown logo as my reminder!  I have a feeling that logo might become rather annoying around Spring/Summer/Autumn time but I bet it counts down real real quick!

Oh, nearly forgot ~ this is my current WIP ~ 'Such Delight' by Homespun Elegance . . .

I took this out to Florida with me, already kitted up and did get to start it too, this Santa's quite a cutie don't you think?

Thank you for your sweet comments on Tilly and Oscar's housebuilding, I've told them my stitching plans for 2012 and they seemed a little worried ~ would that mean those wretched reindeer would keep arriving on the roof and pinching their carrots ~ Oscar's already keeping watch on 'their' shelf in the fridge!

Thanks for stopping by
