Arlette! I'll be in touch soon to get your address. Thanks for participating.

I decided to go on a stash enhancement trip last week and ended up buying a few charts to add to my ever growing collection. I ordered several beauties from Carol Ridyard from istitch blog. Can't wait to stitch these up and I also got the following which didn't take long to get over here at all. I was very surprised!

Two from The Sampler Girl:

and three from Heartstring Primitives (now Heartstring Samplings):

I got these from Beth's etsy shop as she is selling them at a reduced price as they are old inventory stock. Lovely samplers!!

My dh went away today for the BIG tour. Eeek. Sooo... lots of stitchy time for me.

Thank you so much for all your lovely compliments about my Baktus scarf. I have decided to join in the fun on the One World One Heart event and am going to knit one in blue for the giveaway. See seperate post. Feel free to add your name to the list on THAT post if you'd like to win it.

Happy stitching everyone. x

What a wonderful read, I've just come across your blog, can't remember how :o) and enjoyed my visit. I am a sampler lover too, I enjoy stitching them & seeing others projects grow. Your new stash is great and I wish you great enjoyment when you start them.
Just a little word of encouragement for you, friends and aquaintences may walk away and desert you sweetie but God never does. He's always by your side and His love for you is unconditional even in the days it seems as if you're alone He's still there.

Hugs Peg xx

Congratulations to Arlette. Very nice stash haul. :0) Judging by how quickly January has been & gone am sure the time your DH is away will fly past (((((hugs))))).

Hi! Didn't want to comment on your OWOH post only because I don't need a scarf but was looking around anyway! I saw your post about regulars not joining in. I noticed that with my own blog too, but since they do what I do, I don't mind. The idea is to meet new people. I enjoy stitching too and have started a needle roll but haven't worked on it in a week! Too busy visiting all the OWOH blogs!
