You Stash Empire build, of course!
a) you will have lots of cool cross stitching projects to keep you occupied whilst you are adjusting to your new life of unemployment
b) you buy your cross stitch designs and threads, etc, now whilst you can still afford them
c) you are just such a bower bird that you keep hoarding new stuff
d) you have no will power
e) you are the Napoleon, the Genghis Khan, the Augustus Caesar of Stash Empire Building
f) YOU ARE ALL OF THE ABOVE - LIKE ME!
What has brought on this confession I hear you ask? Well.....
1. My dear bloggy friend, Catherine from Bramblewood Stitches has kindly lent me this difficult to obtain Prairie Schooler design "New World Sampler" - just right for a cross stitching historian like me!
In 1492 Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue
In the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria, too
Thank you dear Catherine.
2. These lovely "All Our Yesterdays" designs arrived on my doorstep this morning:
I have wanted to stitch an All Our Yesterdays design for so long.... now I have plenty to choose from!
3. Then, not to be fazed by all this lovely stitching to do - I slipped in and out of my LNS, Lazy Daisy at lunchtime today and came home with these lovely goodies:
Christmas Treasures book by Joan Elliott
I especially love this 12 Days of Christmas Design.
Then I found all of these LHN designs - aren't they wonderful?
|Floss Toss for Two White Houses above|
Look at the gorgeous colours of Blueberry Hill by By The Bay Needleart.
Lastly, look at this most wonderful, gorgeous stitched bag and other stitching goodies from The Victoria Sampler. Each of the four sides has wonderful stitched panels.
So, off I go to do some stitching now - which one, which one, which one.... I wonder?
