Stitcher's Paradise Stash!

Here (finally!) is the stash I bought at the glorious Stitcher's Paradise in Las Vegas:

LHN chart To Thine Own Self be True, I love the sentiment and the colours of this chart.

Weeks Dye Works floss.  L to R:  Santa Claus, Independence, Jealousy, Mermaid, Confetti, Calypso.  I have no project in mind for these flosses, I just love the colours!

Lizzie*Kate Eek Boo Hiss, first 2 charts for 2010 Christmas Flip its, Christmas Rules.  I have to get the rest now!

Assorted GAST and WDW flosses for an upcoming exchange piece.

Crescent Colours Ruby Slippers and 32ct Linen (labeled Ink Spot Black) that I'll be stitching E is for Edward on for my DD.  It's a freebie on the Plum Street Samplers blog.  (For all of you Twilight fans out there, J is for Jacob is available too.)

I think this chart is my favourite purchase.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  The Queen's Sampler:  Elizabeth I by Plum Street Samplers.  I'm a huge lover of English history and was so excited when I saw this chart quite by accident on Paulette's blog.  I probably won't stitch it in the suggested colours, especially the red.  Any colour suggestions???

Brooke's Books Spirit of Holiday Giving Angel (the colours and Victorian style dress grabbed me) and Spirit of Cross Stitch Angel (it's about cross stitch :-0 and I love the French look of her dress.)


Just Nan Keep a Little Secret needle case kit.

2003 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue, always good to have on hand!

Assorted 32ct. linen.  Top is Picture this Plus Crystal Masquerade, bottom are mystery colours (the tags say Stiches & Spice on both.)  I also got a 1/4 yard each of Platinum and Antique White 32 ct. Belfast linen.  I no longer have an LNS so I wanted some neutral linen on hand just in case.

Brooke's Books Sophies Afternoon.  I love the centre motif of the lady.  I think I'll stitch just her on perforated paper. 

And last but not least, perforated paper, scissor sheaths, John James needles, Mill Hill beads, a cute little silver case (from White House, Black Market) that I'm going to turn into a needle/scissor case for on the go and Tear Drop scissors (I'm not sure what brand they are.)

Phew!  What a haul!  I have to thank my dad because it was Birthday money from him that enabled me, LOL. 

Also, my hubby read my Daughter's Are Awesome post and he was teasing me about "throwing him under the bus."  Hey honey, if you read this, you're great even if you can't buy my a birthday cake without DD!  Ha ha!

What an awesome stash haul!!!

Melanie said...

Great stashing!!!
I don't have a LHN either. It's kind of a bummer because I miss browsing and seeing all the finished samples on the walls.

Diane said...

Wow! That's a lot of stash! Great stuff you got!

What about a nice royal purple to sub out the red for Elizabeth? I think she'd look great in any rich jewel tone, actually. If not purple, then I'd choose a royal blue or a nice emerald green.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Your stash is awesome. I just purchased the new L*K Christmas charts myself. They look like so much fun! I agree with Melanie about the royal purple to replace the red. I think it would be beautiful. That's the first color that came to my mind when you said you wanted to change it. Maybe Eggplant or Plush Plum in Belle Soie.

I totally read this post; not sure how I missed commenting. Wonderful stash--I especially love that PSS Elizabeth, and as for Brooke's I have a soft spot in my heart for her work.

Wow! I loved your craft room, a wee bit jealous of that gorgeous chair (wishing I had one too :D) I really love that Elizabeth sampler too. I have an obsession with anything historical and especially from the Tudor era. Great stash too! Have fun stitching!
