S.A.B.L.E.

Stash Aquisition Beyond Life Expectancy

Ok, I have officially joined this club.

Hold on to your hats.
 Here are my stash purchases and gifts during my 16 day holiday.
 You should be able to click on the pictures to see the designers and patterns.
There are some gifts in these pictures both given and received. 


                                                                    
                                                               
                                                             






















Can you tell I had fun? Do you think I need to buy another chart?

And if you are looking for the frog in this post - check out the pin on top of the 32 count linen.

Till next time

Lovely new stash. I look forward to seeing your progress on them. The fabric is lovely too.

Oh my goodness, you are going to be seriously busy Kathy! If you do nothing else but stitch for the rest of your life, I think you may get them all completed! lol. Love the new Mirabilia Santa and that lighthouse ceiling pull.

It's amazing stash Kathy.I see the new Mirabilia Santa in there. I love that one. And the lighthouse fan pull is just too precious! I see some serious stitching in your near future!

Oh my goodness! I started scrolling down, and I had to stop to put my eyes back in my head - LOL! That is a wonderful stash accumulation. Enjoy!

Judy S. said...

Impressive! And you didn't choose anything that I'd call a quick finish! Did you bring along an extra suitcase? lol But then who am I to talk with cross stitch stuff, yarn and fabric. SABLE here, too.

Jocelyn said...

This is so great. I had to chuckle - love your SABLE Stash!

Andrea said...
