Stashing!

I got a gift certificate to my LNS from my Mom for Christmas. And have already spent it all. lol.
Mostly b/c I got the supplies for a class I am taking on Canvaswork. It will be my first Canvas. I am so afraid, the instructions are so complicated. I briefly glimpsed at them.
We are doing a Carolyn Mitchell, Pocket with a View. Carolyn was lovely enough to give us permission to use her pattern.
I have changed the colours to oranges and reds from purples and blues. Just more my speed.
Here is the supplies (excuse my ugly carpet, it was late and I didn't spend time to put a nice sheet behind it):

I also got fabric to start the latest HAED SAL Faerie Bride. She's being stitched over one on 25ct evenweave called Potato. Gonna get going on this one this weekend once i have another set of scroll rods (getting those tonight). I now have so many projects on the go I need more scroll rods! Scary stuff as I have six or seven sets in different sizes already. Here are some of the threads and the pattern:


I also got a new thread that will work much better for the wedding piece for my friends. So that has been frogged and I will be restarting it very soon.
I have an angel stitch to do up for a friend, so can't share it until it's been received.
And of course the stockings. But those at least aren't urgent.

Whew, I tire myself out just listing only half my projects on the go! lol.
Dragons has not been touched all week, I know bad me, but I need to take a pic and share my holiday progress so will do that for next weekend.
Hope you all have a good one!

Great new projects, the canvas one looks really neat. If you have a good instructor it is not that bad, good luck with it.

Love your stash & your new HAED choice. I started a new HAED too. They're irresistible :) Will have to let me know how the canvas class turns out.

Great stashing! Are you taking the class at The Stitching Corner?

Don't be scared of the canvas piece. They aren't hard and they get finished so much faster than cross stitch pieces!! Good luck adding another HAED into the mix.

Shelley said...

Looks like you have great S.E.X. :)
