Back to the races! And a finish!

Here is a new PS leaflet I love, and to the right, a piece of 32ct lambswool linen for the larger sampler. I'm really in love with that fabric. It has such a homespun look. The next pattern is one I've shown before---Remember Me by My Big Toe Designs, and the spring green meadow linen it calls for, that, in combination with the 3 skeins of WDW Soot, and the 1 skein of WDW of Currant (all at right of chart), looks for all the world like an antique, and I love it.

I'm still throwing out, putting away, inventorying, taking pix (think I need a new digital camera), and stitching away.
Above you see one of those nice expensive Zweigart magazines (this one is fallish), of which I'm not buying anymore, LHN Scripture thread pack Faith, Peace, and Country Cottage Needleworks' Home Sweet Home. They're all so beauriful stitched up. Barely discernable because of my crummy camera, on top of the magazine are 3 little plastic boxes of Doodles (by Hobb-Nob) charts with buttons to use on fabric scraps.
These are a couple more stash pix I overlooked before, but I just received more in the mail since then. Got some things from a girl named Barb, I met at retreat who buys old charts, makes these great pillow covers, wallhangings for you to insert your own needlework, and Q-Snap covers. Now I see she has frame covers she designed for pieces left on your stitching stand when not working on them. Besides her Q-Snap covers (on sale this month), I found 4 old charts I was thrilled to get. She has a shop on eBay. Pix of that purchase later. I got my birthday order from Needlecraft Corner, and a very exciting order from Mary Kathryn, who wraps orders up like a present. All these things to be shown later. I'm working with my camera, which I'm ready to throw out the window.
I finished a piece for my DD, which is being framed, probably ready tomorrow. This is Trilogy's "Winter Line Up." Vanessa is a snowman and penguin collector. This one killed 2 birds with 1

Hello gorgeous lady! Just popping by briefly to say I'm thinking of you :) Your stash is wonderful (am going through a LHN/CCN phase myself at present too!). I adore your winter line-up finish too! :D Hope you're feeling good these days - your posts are certainly very cheery, which is wonderful to see :) {{hugs}}

Love your stash, you have some real goodies. I've been eyeing the PS one as well as I thing the 4square in it would make fun pillow. Your Winter Line up turned out wonderful. I also have this in my stash as I fell in love with the penguins.

Hope you're feeling less tired today, you sounded exhausted in your earlier entry. Take care of yourself and rest when you need to (or switch to stitching or something else fun), blogging, emails, and other computer stuff should be fun not a chore.

The winter piece is really cute, Nancy. Congrats on the finish!

Your new linen and threads reminds me of the Acorns and Threads design I stitched up a few weeks ago! Can't wait to see the design come together. :D
