Stash!! Well, obviously. I've been checking out somebody's blog (and at
the moment I can't remember whose it is, argh!!) for a couple of months
now and she's been working on A Drawn Threads "The Wayward
Garden". It's breath taking!! I've actually been yearning over this chart
since the first time that I saw it on A Drawn Threads site, but seeing it
actually being stitched, and what it looks like in (almost) reality sort of
pushed me over the edge. I ordered it, and the threads and fabric, from
Stitching Bit's n Bobs, and the whole shebang arrived today.
I am well and truly out of my cotton picking mind!! Do you know the size
of this thing? And it has specialty stitches!! Well, of course it does Judy,
it is a A Drawn Thread design after all. The silks are lovely colours, and I
look forward to using them for the first time. Rupert keeps trying to steal
them, and I have to watch him like a hawk. These beauties are too
expensive to allow a cat to treat them as surrogate mice. Meanwhile,
since I was placing an order anyways, I figured that I might as well order
another A Drawn Thread design that I'd seen stitched up on another blog.
I had no idea reading blogs was going to cost so much!! Ah well.
Last weekend I placed another order with Stitching Bit's n Bobs for a
pile of LHN designs and some fabric. I couldn't help myself!!! Oh, and I
also ordered a couple of Lizzy Kate charts, since I don't have any of those
yet, and heck, might as well be hung for a sheep, as a lamb. One of these
days I'm really going to have to start behaving myself.
But I'm sure having fun!!!
P.S. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - you may have heard of it -
fantastic read. I'm on page 420 and steaming ahead. This is the
best one yet, for me anyways.
P.P.S. Only two work days left until vacation!!
P.P.P.S. There sure are a lot of exclamation points in this post, aren't
