I promise you, I am still stitching away. I can’t share the project, but I am seeing a finish in the near future! In the mean time, I have still been adding to my stash collection and have even picked out the next project I will start once I finish the model stitch.
That gorgeous mermaid is Nora’s newest release, Mermaid Undine by Mirabilia. I fell in love with her immediately and ordered her right away. Her colors are magnificent and I just love her tail. I will be stitching her on 16ct Aida Gina by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephaine. It will be perfect for her. I am still missing 2 of the Waterlilies threads, in this photo, but they are at my LNS and I will get them before I start her. I know that I have other projects that I want to work on and finish, but I am really itching for a new start and Undine will be it when I finish my current project.
I have not slowed down in adding new beautiful things to my ever growing stash either. When I picked up Undine and her supplies at Stitches N Things, a few other things fell into my bag ;)
Let’s see, we have the 1st and 3rd editions to the Snowglobe Mantle by Bent Creek. Love this piece, but I will definitely be changing out the fabric on this one. Do not like the brown linen it came with. I’m sure I have something in my stash that will work out wonderfully. Noel by T. A. Smith Designs, Trick or Treat by Needle Bling Designs, Summer Laguna Mermaid by Nora Corbett, some petite braids for the PR SAL, a tea pot needle minder (I love tea pots) and Santa Claus Weeks Dye Threads that I want to try on a project.
These beauties I received from my good friend, Annie. She is such a sweetie. I love all the gifties she sent:
Last week I received these beauties from Stephanie’s 4th of July sale along with my August Fabric of the Month. All are 16ct Aida and are gorgeous!
From top left, clockwise, we have Soaring Dragonfly, Pretty in Pink, Oberon, Storm, Silvermist, and Hexing. I can’t wait to stitch on them all some day.
And my most recent additions are a magazine that hubby picked up for me. He works near a Barnes and Noble and new I was waiting for this issue to hit the stands.
Joan Elliott’s Belle de Mer is exquisite! Can’t wait to stitch this one someday, too and I already have the perfect fabric for her. And the Halloween pattern I received in the mail yesterday is an Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks pattern and I LOVE it! I have been wanting to stitch one of her designs. She had a rough time on her face book group from a not so nice individual and I wanted to show my support of her work. There are several other designs by her that I want to stitch, too, but I settled for this one for now.
So, there you have it. All of my new stash. Lots of things for me to dream about stitching one day. For now I will keep plugging away at the model stitch. I’d love to know what you have added to your stash lately??
