Naughty Clicky Finger

You know, when one is sitting around waiting for something to happen, one tends to spend far too much time on the computer.

The end result:

Nutcracker Pattern - SuzLet Creations

The newest Gingher scissors - I love the plaid!

Threads and beads for Chatelaine's Desert Mandala

Vikki Clayton threads - online needlwork sale

I emailed Vikki to thank her for these beautiful threads and to tell her that I was busy fondling them as they were soooo soft. She sent me back an email saying thank you - now stop fondling and stitch with them. LOL

Laura Plantation from Nouveau Encore.

DH and I toured this amazing plantation while in Louisiana and this shop specializes in Louisiana cross stitch. Gayle included several free patterns. She tells me it is called "lagniappe" (LAN-YAP) in Louisiana. What a great way of putting it.

I ordered and received the Crescent Colors so that I can start this beautiful etui.

Nutcrackers in Blue by Imaginating.

oh and a pattern for a Hockey Santa - can't find where I put it - maybe it is with my missing calendar and DH's boating license.

I have stitched some but my stitching urge seems to be on hiatus. I seem to find everything small to do that detracts from my urge to sit and stitch. Hopefully it will be short lived.

Here are my latest finishes:

More squares for my redwork "Postcards from Canada" wall hanging. All the squares are now stitched and the coordinating squares are done. It is almost ready to put together - next post.

Two Friendship Sampler RR's have come through the door, been stitched and sent on their way.

And here is the reason I move to Arizona every winter.

How many ways can you say sunny!
Till next time - keep on stitching and thanks for stopping by.

Jill said...

Lots of great stash! Right now I am a little jealous of Arizona. We are in the beginning stage of a major Winter Storm. We are to get 7-10" by tomorrow morning. Might be a snow day tomorrow! :)

MMMM, nice stash. I hope that you get some good news about your son on the 11th. Love the exchange that you did with Cheryl.

Jenny said...

What a great haul! Enjoy! :)

Wanda said...

Christmas came early!!! Good for you!!! I love all the goodies. The postcards are great...looking forward to seeing it put together. And don't worry about the distractions....you'll be stitching again, renewed and revitalized. I think that sometimes these breaks are important.

Hazel said...

Naughty finger indeed!! But very very nice stash. Enjoy your stitching. xx

Carolyn NC said...

Wow - wonderful stash haul! Enjoy! Both of these RR's are so pretty and I love your postcards.

Lisa said...

Itchy "clicking" fingers do get us into trouble once in a while, but sometimes we just deserve some new stash! It all looks wonderful and fun. If you find the Hockey Santa, I would love to see it :)
Take care,
Lisa in CA

Wendy said...

Looks like lots of great new projects to start, Kathy! Now ... which one will be first?

Rachel S said...

I go through those adding to stash times too. I am hoping to have fewer of those, more stitching.

Katrina said...

Great stash!!! And I love all the stitched bits and pieces and the round robins.

Wendy said...

OMG!! That is lots of nice new stash you got!! You sure will know what to do ;)

Nice stitching, you've done a very nice job.


Jan said...

Wonderful new stash, Kathy!! And your stitching is wonderful too!

Hi Kathy,
What an amazing collection of stash that you have received. Everything is lovely.
I have my fingers crossed today for your son. I hope everything turns out well for him.
I am having one of those weeks as well. I found out on Monday that I have been walking around for a long time with 2 stress fractures in my leg. Great news. Looks like I have to have a knee operation ASAP. - Sandra.

Great stashing... love all the fibers, especially. :) Have fun.
