Stash and WIP's

Happy Sunday night!!!

I drove all the way to La Crosse, Wisconsin yesterday (3-1/2 drive) only to drive back home today.
Dan has a fishing tournament this coming weekend, I planned on going out in the boat all day with him today, only to find out last night that he could only pre-fish today by himself. geez! I wasn't going to fish, just sit and stitch or read. Good thing I did go for a ride in the boat late afternoon yesterday, after doing some shopping, would you like to see what I bought? Okay dokey

First up I visited Crosse Stitchery in downtown



Wicked Witch w/ 30ct cappuccino from WDW ( I didn't think that is right, but maybe for weeks it is) I'm not going with the called for Havanna, just because I'm stitching Something Wicked with that linen, The Boys Are back In Town freebie, but you had to buy the buttons, can't wait to start it. The other ones were clearance, yay! Love a good buy

Then it was on to the antique mall


A spool, old skeleton keys, and a grimey old oil can, that will make a awesome Halloween piece. I found the wool at a craft mall, couldn't pass up the bundle.


Here is a WIP...


Never Let You Go sampler, getting there slowly, very slowly


I started Christmas Garden a couple weeks ago, love it





Anna my friend from Madison RAK'd with a sampler I've been looking for a long time. We were shopping at Lynn's of Madison, I seen it and forgot to buy it.
The next time she came down she gave it to me, how sweet is that?!
I'm starting it tonight, right after I post this post




I bought 40ct Maritime, it calls for 40ct cream Newcastle. I'm going to use the called for DMC.

There are so many stitchy things calling my name, I better go get a jump on things

Goodnight!!

Stashing is for what ails ya! That's too bad you didn't get to sit in the boat. Maybe next time! Love your new stash, and your finds too. Do you plan to put 'Christmas Garden' on Christmas Garden or an alphabet? I have this sampler too and haven't started yet! Have a great Labor Day!
