Stash and Wips and Stuff ...

Happy Monday ... my week was good and my weekend was better. Saturday was full of housework, a few errands, stitching, nascar racing and after all that we rented Michael Clayton. If you haven't seen it, I would really recommend the movie .. but don't expect to stitch during it! lol .. I tried for the first hour, but keep getting lost so I put the needle down and enjoyed the rest of the movie. Sunday was a beautiful day here. DH worked on the deck and I opened up all the windows and putz around outside. I also spent some time cleaning up my stitching room ... started reorganizing charts and putting threads away so I could find them again! I do enjoying playing with my stash .. it's almost as fun as stitching! lol

Speaking of stash .. a few of you asked were I ordered Stash Keep by Homespun Elegance. I found it on this website ... The Stitch and Frame Shop. Peggy was really nice and I would definately order from her again. I've also seen it on Skakespeare's Peddler site. Maybe we should have a little fun SAL with this one .. quick stitch and fun too!

Look what arrived in the mail today! I have got to stop buying stash! argh .. but darn it's all sooo cute! The first picture is stash from Monsterbubble .. thanks Anna for enabling me! lol life's a stitch, and then you dye" came with kool aide to dye the fabric! what fun is that :) I'm really looking forward to a cup of coffee and some time to look through her book .. looks like fun too!




This stash came from DSL .. now I'm about 7 words behind on the L*K doubles .. gotta get stitching!


Here's what I've been stitching on last week and over the weekend. This is CCN's Sunflower Sampler. I just love this sweet pattern. The fabric is a very pretty blue and lovely to stitch on.


and here's my progress on BC's Joy. I need to get a better picture of this in the sunshine ... this picture just doesn't show how deep and warm this piece is.


And I haven't forgotten about kitchen pictures .. but the sink is not here yet .. it is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday and if all goes well the plumber will be here on Thursday .. we'll see lol

Hope everyone has a great week!!

I'm grateful for my laptop working again ...

All your stash looks great! I have just started buying the LK Double Flip words. I also stitched Sunflower Sampler for my mother and made it into a pillow. It turned out great. And I loved Michael Clayton also. A great, great movie.
