Stash Happy :)

I am insanely hooked on hand-dyed linens. This is what was waiting for me when I got back from vacation: Top Row - Silkweaver 28 ct "Autumn"; Silkweaver 28 ct solo; Silkweaver 32 ct belfast "Forest Haven" (this is gorgeous). Bottom Row - Silkweaver 32 ct Jazlyn "Debutante"; Silkweaver 32 ct belfast "Cinnabar" and Silkweaver 32 ct Jobelan "Spring Garden". In the bottom pic we have top row - 32ct Antique Copper; Drawn Thread's Wayward Garden; Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct "Sun Dappled Glade"; Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct "Petunia Path" (I have another piece of this but this one is much pinker); middle row - 40 ct R&R "Neptune Blue" (very yummy); Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct Peach Grove; Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct "Morning Meadow"; bottom row - Sugar Maple Fabrics 32 ct belfast "Posiedon"; Silkweaver 28 ct solo; Sugar Maple Fabrics 32 ct belfast "Daisy Chain". And then 5 skeins of Crescent Colours I needed.
In my last post I mentioned that 3 LNS's that I went to weren't very good but I forgot to tell you about the great deal I got at one of them. This particular LNS also owns a frame shop next to it. While I was there buying a few skeins of thread someone came through the shop with a bunch of frames, and she was talking to the person who was waiting on me about THROWING them away. I quickly spoke up and said if they were going to throw them away I would gladly take them off of their hands. I got 15 frames for FREE. 10 of them are just gorgeous, the other 5 are just kind of ordinary. They said the frames were odd sizes and they couldn't use them and they were tired of tripping over them. Yoohoo for me, I'll find something to put in them!!
