Someone stop me.......please!!!


I think I am out of control with my stash buying. No.....I know I'm out of control!! Someone help me put the brakes on. I LOVE my new stash and I'll enjoy stitching every bit of it someday if I can ever get to it all.
In the top picture we have God's Critters and Trellis by Workbasket, these go together and are rather old charts but I just love them. I will do them on the 36 ct Antique White Edinborough you can barely see under there. Then I had to get Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Samplers, but I will do it in the multi-colored version like Rob, I bought a 36 skein set of the DMC variegated flosses and I may use them or I might go with Vicki Clayton silks like Rob did. Then there's Miss New Year's Fairy by Miribilia and a FQ of Silkweaver "Elegance" 28 ct Jobelan. I'll do Miss New Year's on a Silkweaver Solo that I have instead of the natural linen it came with. The bottom picture is the series by Plum Street Samplers called Stories To Live By, I got Jonah, Noah and Adam. I got 40 ct Creme Brulee by R&R for Jonah, and 40 ct Daily Grind by R&R for Noah and Adam and just a few of the threads that will be needed.

Thats quite a stash aquisition.

I love the stash you have brought. Its a pity we dont have such choice in New Zealand but I guess that where the internet helps. Enjoy your stash :)

Wow - great stash! I think I'm probably as bad as you when it comes to stash buying, I just don't tell!

Sorry you're not enjoying St. Pete, despite my enjoyment, it can be heavy going. I'm just trying to keep up for as long as I can.

Great stash :) I just ordered the fabric for Paradigm Lost, and am trying to decide which color to stitch it with. I'm thinking that I will pick a NN color...maybe blue or purple. Do you want to do a SAL?

Vonna said...

I should say you've been "stocking up" LOL! But as my mantra is: Life is short...so you might as well live it large :)
I think it's wonderful that you are feeding your creative soul with the things that inspire you!

Julie said...

nice stash ... so what is the 'can't resist starting it now' one in there then ???

Lauren said...

Mmm, lots of lovely stash! I certainly am not going to tell you to stop :)

Katrina said...

I love the stories to live by,I have two and I am dying to stitch them :-).

Margie said...

Can anyone have too much stash? :-) I think not.

Munners said...

Wow - looks like you have some wonderful stuff there. And buying stash stuff is just so addictive. I look forward to seeing how your PL is going to turn out!

Julie said...

Oh, you've got the stash buying bug bad! :-) I love your new stash and I think the Long Dog Sampler would look great in those DMC threads.

Sally said...

Very nice new stash. It's lovely to get new stash isn't it? I need to stop on the charts for a while I must aadmit!

Pumpkin said...

Ohhhhhhhhh, you've done some lovely stashing!!!! Drool....

Karin said...

Wow - great stash haul! You picked out some gorgeous stuff.

Kajsa said...

I love the stash! But I know what you are saying about getting to much lately. I always spend a bit more when I'm stressed.

What gorgeous stash, I'm sitting here drooling on my keyboard. :)
I have the Christmas Elf Fairy and Halloween Fairy in my stash to do, but don't have Miss New Years Eve yet. When I do the two I have I'll be switching out the material as well, I love the little bit of extra that the specialty linens give them.

Oh I love all your new stash, everything is so much fun. Sorry can't help you stop, I would only be a bad influence because I love stash. LOL
Thank you so much for your recent comments on my blog. So nice of you. I love your blog and pictures too. Great job.

Jamie said...

I love the charts. They are looking wonderful. I love the Long Dog Sampler and love the different colors. If you ever need to get rid of some stash - LOL!!

Cynthia said...

Great haul. Consider these acquisitions as retirement investments. You have to purchase them know so that when you're living on a fixed income you can still stitch!

BlissxStitches said...

I love, love, love the Paradigm Lost sampler. It's only with super control that I haven't purchased it yet.

nancy said...

Wow! Great stashing you've done! And you're doing the Village ... *sigh* I think it's an incredible piece but I just don't know that I'm up to it.
Thank you for your comments on my blog! I'm going to be checking yours regularly ... looks like we have similar taste in stash. ;o)

Edda said...

I just love your new stash. There is nothing better than a lot of new stash. Enjoy it.

All the best,
Edda

Nice stash :)

Wendy said...

Stash buying is too much fun to give up for long. I just ordered Paradigm Lost also, after I saw Rob's on her blog. I think I'll order her Vicki Clayton conversion also. I love it!

Aussie Stitcher said...

I am in no position to stop anyone from buying stash. I can't help myself let alone help someone else. LOL

Far be it for me to stop anyone stashing! According to my blog labels I have 6 entries labeled STASH and that is just since February. And I am too embarrassed to post my latest stash from Ohio. Just another Bent Creek Ewe (the just released Summer with the lobster) and two shell charts to stitch for my mother-in-law. And does buying a cross stitch magazine from England really count as stash?

I am also addicted to Silkweaver fabric, especially their Solos. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) most of the ones I want are snapped up by the time I get to my mail Tuesday morning.
