Happy St Patrick's Day & new stash


 Hello ! Wishing you all the luck of the Irish! I will be wearing green today. My orders came in from what I ordered from market.  Photos of my new stash coming up but first here's some of my stitching progress:

 Progress on Autumn BBD 
 36ct Vintage Lt Exampler - Lakeside Linens

 Annie of Annie Bebop's Coloring blog had stitched this egg pin cushion design and finished it with beads on the edging. Well as soon as I saw it I stopped what I was doing and started stitching this right away. It's a freebie chart by Aliolka and can be found HERE. I just fell in love what Annie stitched and the way she decorated her tin is so beautiful. Seeing the orange color felt gives me instant energy when I look at it. You may have already seen Annies post but if you haven't please have a look.

 Oh boy I must of thought we won lotto! Sadly NO we haven't! Garden Fair Kit by BBD  it included full skeins of threads, chart but no linen. I have been wanting to try Diamant by DMC I got a gold color. It's so pretty in person. Looking forward to stitching with this thread.

 Needle Bind Friendship by Olde Colonial Designs, Topiary in Bloom by BBD & a fun kit that makes me laugh "Hand Wash Only" by Thomas Joesph (from Ireland too).

 Forget Me Not - BBD I know its a older chart but I love it! 

 Oh here's one chart that I had to really hunt down - Twilight Pearls Leaf Ball by Just Nan, and the required fabrics for it. Daffodil Run by Just Nan and I got a little round tin of Just Nan's - Bunny, 2 sliders Just Nan - Peacock and Bunny's. No charts for the sliders but I would love to find the mini charts for them especially the Peacock one.
Now that I am looking at all this new stash in this photo - it's all by Just Nan. I have noticed that Just Nan charts tend to sell out fast. Hard to find some of her older ones.

 And another beautiful chart Floral Fifteen - Just Nan and the fabrics for the chart. 


I think you saw in previous photos these zipper pouches in the background.  I made for myself some new project pouches and a needlebook from the scraps. The inside of the needlebook I used some special trim and charm that lee had given me. The will house some of these new projects as I stitch them.

Here's a photo of all my new stash and one more item that I didn't get a close up of is Sizzle kit by Just Nan.
I think now I have plenty of some wonderful projects for stitching that are spring & summer themed.
Seems most of my projects are mostly Fall & Christmas designs.
Our weather has been gorgeous! Short sleeves have been needed, nice change. Thank you for your visit.
With my love and appreciation - Annette

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you too. We have been greeted by a 6" snowfall last night! I don't ever remember a snow on Mar. 17 in this area and I've lived here all my life!

I'm honored that you liked my egg enough to stitch one yourself. Yours is a cute twin to mine. I guess they came from the same chick!

Fabulous new projects. You are going to be quite busy this spring. Love the pretty delicate fabrics you used on your project bags too.

KimM said...

WOW! Awesome!!! You are gonna have some FUN, Girl!!

Vickie said...

ooOoo! Gorgeous, gorgeous goodies! I adore Just Nan.

Gorgeous new stash! I especially like your sweet project bags. They are beautiful and spring-like!! I'm feeling the stash bug bite today, too. I might be taking a road trip to my LNS today! : )

Love all your new stash, and your stitching wallets too! I loved Annie's finish as well -- you are fast stitching that up already and the tin finish too! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patty's Day, dear friend! Lovely new stash too. I know what you mean about those Just Nan charts. It's scary how similar our tastes are. LOL!

Kim said...

Wonderful stash! Where to begin? I love the zippered pouches you made - those fabrics are gorgeous!

Melissa said...

oh, Wowser, what a stash haul! Good for you, Annette! It gets the adrenaline going doesn't it?

I love the zippered pouches you made. If you don't mind, could you tell me if and where I could find instructions for making them? Thanks!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Von said...

Lulu said...

Happy St Patrick's day to you and hooray for all of the new stash!

Simply Victoria said...

Your project bags and needlebook are beautiful. I kept eyeing them in the background of your first photos and was wondering about them. Lots of new charts for you. I especially like Forget Me Not.

Barb said...

Really great stash! I agree , that little egg is so cute. Thanks for the info so we can get the chart.

Anne said...

Ooh Annette, you did splurge! Wonderful stash haul! Lots to play with. The Just Nan Leaf ball is stunning when finished!! I love that BBD chart! Those project bags behind it are beautiful too! Do you have a pattern, or tutorial you use? I've tried making one but I need to have a step by step tutorial...not as an accomplished sewer as you :D Hugs!

Dani - tkdchick said...

Wow! Lots of lovely stash!

Brigitte said...

Annette, these pouches you made together with the needlebook are just gorgeous. And so is the little egg pincushion that you made for that tin. I had seen it on Annie's blog and thought what a beautiful thing this was. No wonder that you liked it too and made one yourself.

Ohhhhhh my, all this new stash that you show here. Great! And everything promises some wonderful and enjoyable stitching hours.

Andrea said...

Love the progress on your Autumn BBD. Great new stash. We should be seeing some more lovely finishes from you soon. :)

Karoline said...

Your egg finish is very cute and great progress on your BBD.

You got some lovely stash, enjoy :)
