Another Sale, More Stash

Who can resist a sale especially when it is a Needlework sale? My favourite LNS Kathryn's Stitching Studio had 25% off of fabric, thread, charts/leaflets and beads this weekend. I resisted buying any more charts/leaflets but did buy 3 pieces (18" x 27") of fabric - 28ct Autumn Blush Lugana, 28ct Purple Jazlyn and 28ct white Lugana, Kreinik BF 002 (for a project), and 2 WDW threads - Love & Romance (just because they are the perfect colours for the month of February and also quite pretty). The DMC floss was purchased at Michaels.

I love the Purple Jazlyn (although it is looking more bluish on my screen). Purple is one of my favourite colours. I am not sure what I will stitch on it (any suggestions?????) but I couldn't resist purchasing it since it was on sale. I am very picky with over-dyed/hand-dyed fabrics. I don't like the ones with too much colour contrast but the subtle mottling of the Autumn Blush is beautiful. The salesclerk told me that I have to show her what I stitch on these fabrics and I looked at her and said "That may take a few years." She said she was careful not to put a time frame on the request as she is in the same boat.

Although I didn't make any chart/leaflet purchases today, I have made some recent purchases. First I purchased the Victoria Sampler Christmas Treasures Collection. It is something I thought I would like to stitch if either of my nieces or my nephew decided to get married and since my eldest niece got engaged 2 days before Christmas, I am now going to do it. I am just waiting for the Accessory pack to arrive in the mail. The wedding is planned for September of 2012 so I figure I have enough time to complete all the ornaments.

I am also anxiously waiting for the first of the 2011 LHN Christmas Ornaments "Cardinal Winter" to arrive in the mail. I signed up for the Automatic Shipment program (including fabric) at Down Sunshine Lane. I was informed a week ago Thursday that it was in the mail.

So much to stitch, so little time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Stitching!!!!!
