Stitching a plenty

Violet from Country Cottage Needleworks

Quaker Christmas from Midnight Stitching


Blue Ridge Santa ? from Mill Hill
Here's another update with stitching pictures. I really enjoy my stitching at the moment, it's perfect stitching weather here. Cold and snowy, so it's nice to just stay in and stitch with a cup of tea. Yesterday it was 0 degrees Fahrenheit when we took Emma to her basket ball game, brrr.
Today it's snowing again, big fluffy snowflakes are falling and it's so pretty! I'm stitching on Bent Creeks Winter Row so it's perfect for this time of year.
I've been so bad lately, I ordered a bunch of Sugar Maple fabrics from a lady that was selling them on the Mirabilia board. Can't wait to get them, I have never used their fabrics before. Then San Man Originals had some really cute charts in their latest news letter. They were all Valentine ones so I ordered 4 of them.
Then my latest order from Stitching Bits and Bobs came. I ordered before Christmas as a Christmas gift to myself, I never get stitching stuff for Christmas otherwise. It took a real long time for it to get here this time though so it's almost a birthday gift now. But I know that they take their time so I never get anything I need quick from them. Their sales are really good so it's worth the wait.
I got Mirabilia's Thanksgiving Fairy kit, Rose from CCN, Acorn's a Plenty and Harvest Birds from Praiseworthy Stitches and Pumpkin Patch, Cranberry Christmas, Button up from PS. Very nice haul in my opinion. The Mirabilia Fairy has fantastic colors in it, yummy!
It was nice to get some new pretty stash, don't know when I will get around to stitching it, I'm just fondling at the moment.
Country Cottage Needleworks just released 2 more charts I have to have, Cherry Hill and Cottage Garden, can't wait until I can get my hands on them.
Thank you for your kind comments! I thought I would be forgotten after being absent for such a long time. I have tried to read blogs more often this week but DH has been home all week with shingles, so that has taken some of my time (ok, a whole lot of it). Seems like he's doing a bit better today but it seems to be one of those things that do drag on a while. He's hoping that he will be well enough to get to his meeting in Mexico later this week. I don't blame him with this weather, 77 to 79 degrees sounds lovely to me too!

beautiful finishes Kajsa! I know you will enjoy the SMF fabrics - I have been a fan of Mindy's dyeing for a long time :)

Oh, you are absolutely not forgotten !! Bits and Bobs has always so long shipping time that I wonder how they can do that...but if you know that when ordering, it doesn´t bother that much. I love those Mirabilia´s Fairies !! Can´t wait to see it stitched !
I miss snow. this winter has been extraordinary warm here that there isn´t much of it.

Beautiful finishes., I love Quaker Christmas!

Wow I wish it were snowing here. We've had rain for so long it's getting ridiculous. I miss snowy winters!

You bought some lovely stash. Can't wait to see your WIPs:)

Suzanne said...

You have been busy! I love your finishes, especially the quaker Christmas.

Sounds like you really spoilt yourself with a mighty stash. It feels good to do that once in a while.

I am so envious of your snow, we never get really cold weather here and it's very dissapointing. At the moment our summer is mild, so we have had very few really hot days and I am very thankful.

Barb said...

I love those finishes. The Violet one is so pretty and the Santa one is so cute. We are having lots of snow here too. It is pretty to look out at especially fresh fallen snow.

Beautiful finishes, Kajsa :) I really like the colors on Violet... very soft. How's your DH doing now? I know several people who have been attacked by the shingles this winter! Weird.

Wow, your needle has been busy! They are all very nice. I have some of those Mill Hill Santa kits that I really need to get done. This one with the raccoon is really cute. And I really like Cherry Hill from CCN also.
