I have new Stash!!

Good Morning!

It's a cold wet dreary day here in Nebraska. I am not enjoying it at all but at least it is NOT at this time snowing. They have mentioned it might do that tomorrow. I hope not as I am headed up north to pack up the shack and sign the closing papers. I'll be glad to have this done but very sad to be doing it. In a perfect world, I'd have enough money to make it look like I wanted, and enough time to go up there more than once a year. BUT, this isn't a perfect world so I'll just keep all the wonderful years of memories close to my heart and bring them out when I need a little bit of soul soothing.

Mary Ann came over a couple of days ago and she brought my stash that I ordered. I should be cleaning the house since my in-laws are coming at 1:00 today, but instead I am procrastinating. I took pictures of my stash. Just.For.You. And to waste more time since I don't feel like cleaning!!

First up is Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor. Love, love, love this chart and the threads are gorgeous! I've never stitched with Valdani threads before, I hope they are worth what I paid for them. I'm itching to start this one but I promised myself I wouldn't until after I finish Signs of Fall and another project for my daughter.

Next up is Christmas Sampler by Stoney Creek. I think this is so pretty. There is another Christmas Sampler just out by Sheperds Bush that I think I have to have too.

I first saw this next chart on Margie's blog, Three Cool Pugs and Me. I thought it was such a cute stitch that I had to get it. Not sure when I'll get to it but it'll be here when I'm ready!

This next one by Lizzie Kate is so dang cute! I can't wait to stitch this one and finish it up cute like the picture! I can see all kinds of ways to display it, can't you?

And finally, I thought this new one by Sweetheart Tree was too cute to pass up. Not sure if I will turn it into an ornament or what but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

I think I will leave you with the view from my front door this morning. The fall color is gorgeous right now, wish it was warm enough and dry enough to go out and enjoy it! Well, I have procrastinated long enough and they will be here before I know it. Have a great weekend everyone and I'll see ya when I get back! Thanks for stopping in!

Love all that stash! There is nothing better! I think that your rain is coming here to Michigan. After 70+ yesterday, it's getting cold and dreary, but no snow yet. It amazes me that you've had snow already.

As you know Julie I LOVE that Rosewood Manor sampler and will jealously watch as you complete it eventually. I also love the Lizzie Kate and that should stitch up very fast, too cute! All the stash choices are great, now to find the just right fabric and all that fun..LOL!
I am sorry about the rain, was out in it myself today and no fun at all. Two days of those gorgeous temps was just not enough and now the beautiful colors are fading...just not fair it seems.
I hope the weekend is not too emotional for you ...I'll be thinking of you and say HI to the shack and Sister's House, am ready for another retreat!

Nice stash, and what a pretty fall picture (even if it is rainy). Yesterday was nice for us in NW IL, but today I woke up to rain.

Julie, with all those beautiful things to stitch, I don't know how you did anything else this past weekend. Can't wait to see them done.

Nice view out your window. While our leaves have finally turned beautiful here in PA, and the sun has come out, they have almost all blown away.

And like snowflakes, they just don't look as pretty on the ground!
