BBD start and stash

I started BBD Where My Heart Blooms the other night and finished the roof last night.
Here is some of the stash I have acquired over the last couple of months.
Sisters and Best Friends- Holly Jolly Christmas unknown fabby, but not what it calls for

Little House Needleworks- Prairie Sampler & My needle's Work Blue Ribbon Designs- letters, leprechauns and Luck with water lily fabric

Blackbird Designs-Where My Heart Blooms, Live Each Season & Bittersweet Moon

Haberdashery Designs- Voodoo Boy & Divination Sampler

Prairie Moon- There Was An Old Woman

Notforgotten Farms- Jingle All The Way & Thomas

I finally receieved all my 20 skiens of balsam fir for Christmas Quaker, which was on backorder, so it would be from the same lot. So I just might start that soon. Today I was organizing all my hand-dyed threads and have so many doubles. I try to write them down in my spiral notebook, so if I go to a needleshp and find a chart, i know what threads I have. I was surfing and found these printable Checklists for Crescent Colours, Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts (Sampler Thre.(You dont have to register to print the list) I know they will sure come in handy for me. Thanks for all the comments on MS, I will have to think what I want to do. I forgot to mention, I already tried a maroonish mat, but didnt like it against the gold frame. Maybe a pillow perhaps

Does anyone have BOAF Valentine Holiday they would like to trade or sell?

Well, off to make some yummy din-din.

Happy Stitching!!

Wow look at all that stash. I think you will be very busy.
Good idea to have a check list for your floss. I do that for the DMC!
I don't have much of the specialty threads yet. Working on it!!

Nice start, and what great new stash you've acquired. Glad that you got the fibers for Quaker Christmas in, that one is so pretty.

J Rae said...

Check out that stash!!!

Glad you enjoyed your recent trip to Florida. Not sure what that was you saw in the water. I've lived in Florida most of my life, but haven't encountered that. :-)

Love the Noah's Ark piece you found for $3.00!!! Can't beat that!

Your "And They Sinned" looks sooooooooooo awesome. I have long admired that piece.

Look at all that stash!!!! I'm drooling all over my keyboard ;oP''' That's the second time I have seen the voodoo doll so something's telling me I should add that to my stash. I'll use mine with my insurance company. LOL!

Lovely start you have there Ranae! Can't wait to see this one progress.

Sorry, I don't have that chart :o(
