Mail stash!


My package arrived from Needlecraft Corner yesterday! This was my present from hubby for no stash buying for the month of April.

I had already bought the Designing Ladies Finishing Book, and silly me I really assumed there would be one of the patterns in the book for these wonderful needlebooks. So I was about to order the Attic Collection by Judy O'Dell, when I found the kit packaged together by Drema. It comes with the most gorgeous piece of hand-dyed 32 ct linen, called Vintage Autumn Fields, 7 skeins of Needle Necessities and a pack of copper coloured beads.

I' ve had a look through the charts and it looks pretty well laid out, showing exactly where to stitch each of the patterns on the fabric, so that you have enough left over for the finishing.

This is really not the best scan, this fabric is really to die for!

I can't believe this is Thursday already, its 4 Saisons stitching night, and I don't think I've touched it this month at all! I hope to get some decent stitching done and I'll scan it tomorrow morning. I'm into Winter just as our weather here is finally warming up!

I'm trying to catch up on blog reading, but it's difficult now that I've gotten so far behind. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment.

Oh, that is a beautiful fabric! I can think of a couple of designs in my stash that would look fabulous on that (a few yellow Mira fairies come to mind). Can't wait to see your progress!
