I've recently sold some of my stash that I know I will not stitch with mainly due to changes in my tastes and preferences. So what does any stashaholic do with any money they get from selling stash? Why they reinvest it in more stash! So there's quite a lot to cover here so bear with me.
I purchased Frosty Knotgarden from Chatelaine as it is a chart I have wanted for a very long time and has just been re-released on Martina's new site.
I signed up for the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery - A Very Merry Christmas Town which is a mystery SAL - part 1 has been released now and looks like this. This will also be my first chart from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.
I also bought my first chart from Eclectic Bloke Designs. It is called Edna the Owl and is by Caroline Lord. Unfortunately this chart has now been retired but I believe the artist may be doing her own cross stitch conversions in the future.
I also purchased a messenger bag with this design on from Zippi - it's a great bag was delivered really quickly and was a very reasonable price.
I bought my first chart from Nikki at Charting Creations. It's called Imagination Unleashed. I knew this chart was a must have when I lost two nights sleep thinking about how I could stitch it in different colours with speciality stitches.
I've wanted to stitch a biscornou for a long time so when I got an e-mail from Sew and So telling me they had 10% off their biscornous I took the plunge and got three!
I then bought some Needle Paints threads from a stash unload group on Facebook. I have some of these threads but as I plan to stitch the Celtic Ladies from Lavender & Lace I thought a few extra might come in handy.
I bought myself a needleminder from Katty's Crafts. The only thing I would say is that the magnet isn't really strong enough for my liking so I am going to add another magnet myself.
I bought myself some fabric from Chromatic Alchemy. This is the piece I am going to stitch the Frosted Pumpkin piece on and it is absolutely stunning. Whenever I take pictures of fabric they never come out properly so I am just going to link to the fabric so you can see the photo on there. I bought the Opal Jazlyn in Nimbus and it is perfect.
I bought myself some threads from the Patchwork Rabbit. There are two in here for the Frosted Pumpkin chart and the rest are for the Santa's Village charts from Country Cottage Needleworks.
I then placed another order for Sew and So.
I got an adaptor for my Lowery stand as I was finding my longer frames were not as stable as I would like them to be. The adaptor definitely helps with the.
I also purchased a chart from Just Nan called Christmas Elegance which is another one I have wanted to stitch for a long time. I also bought some of the threads needed for this project.
I also got Celtic Autumn from Lavender and Lace. This is a chart that I used to have and sold a long time ago but now I want to stitch it so have bought it again!!
And last but by no means least my gorgeous monthly threads from Jodyri Designs.
I have managed to do some stitching which I haven't show on my blog yet this month so will do another post later this week with my July stitching.
If you've managed to make it through this massive haul post thank you for indulging me.
Keep stitching and smiling
