I Heart Stashing

I have been in a stashing mode recently and thought I'd share a few of my acquisitions, even though my pictures are kind of crummy.
Mary Kathryn at Handcrafts online continues to provide excellent service with my auto shipments of LHN thread packs. I also couldn't resist CCN's "Winter Welcome" and "My Beloved."

A gift certificate to Stitching Bits and Bobs helped me pick up these: Bent Creek's "Wedding Row," "Happy Hearts Sampler" by Birds of a Feather which I just adore, and Brightneedle's "Let Wisdom Flower" small sampler. You can't read it here, but the verse on this last one reads, "Let Wisdom and Compassion Flower in Thee" -two virtues which are of upmost importance to me as a Christian counselor. I can't wait to stitch all of these.

Finally, my Prairie Schooler collection continues to grow, little by little. Mary Kathryn is sending me one Christmas chart each month with my thread packs, and I have managed to find a few out of print charts on eBay for reasonable prices. I especially like the sweet "Prairie Birds" on top here.

I am getting excited about Crescent Colors' newest offering which will debut at Nashville - silks! I can't wait to see those.
