Stash, Stash, Stash

Stash, stash, stash
We like fabrics and threads
Stash, stash, stash
Patterns, beads and magazines
Stash, stash, stash
Linen, silks and cotton
Stash, stash, stash
We love them!
We love them!
(sung to Boys, Boys, Boys by Lady Gaga)

It's been awhile since I've posted about stash so grab a cup of tea and get comfortable because I've got some eye candy ready and waiting for you ;o)

First off, after hearing that Carriage House Samplings was no longer going to be producing patterns, I immediately knew I had better get Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. There was no way I was going to pay OPP prices later on. Luckily ABC Stitch had their charts on for 20% off so as you can see, the rest is history ;o)


Since I have all the silks for the Shores at Hawk Run Hollow, I knew I had better start accumulating for AaHRH. Drema has her NPI on sale for $2.90 each so I added a handful to my existing thread order. Okay, so they just jumped in there...


Just recently, Theresa sent me two Pine Mountain kits -


The pillow covers are so cute and well made but I might use a different pattern for the August one. I don't see why not!

If you haven't heard yet, fellow Blogger, Erynne, has officially started her cross stitch designing career! Check out her current patterns on her new website called Red House Crafts. The following is what Erynne sent to me -


I was so excited to go through it all! She even threw in all those fibers as a bonus :o) Thanks so much Erynne!

Last but not least, Karen sent me the A Bunny For Baby Kit by JBW Designs -


This is just TOOOOOO adorable for words and I know what my in-between project is going to be now. I guess my mind was made up for me ;o)

Wonderful stash ! I've been wanting to get the Autumn one and didn't realize it might go OOP. Will have to get my order in ASAP.

Erynne said...

woohoo...what great new stash. Looks like CHS sales are increasing as she's trying to retire :-)
I need to start acquiring the silks for any of these; just buy a few along the way....maybe one day I can stitch them all...hahaha!

Marjorie said...

Great stash! I am going to have to pick up Autumn at HRH even though it's questionable whether I will ever have time to stitch it...that way when mankind discovers how to add another 15 hours onto a day, it will be there..

Carol said...

Lots of goodies here, Cathey! I see you're already spending your first paycheck :) That little bunny kit is too cute--I just love it!

♥ Nia said...

Great stash! I too had to get AaHRH and the villages and my mom got Christmas. I have a couple more of her patterns to get and then I am good.
