It's been busy here, as usual. Can't show any stitching pics today as I've been stitching on exchanges. You'll get a peek at them eventually. I can share some stash I picked up recently. Unfortunately the shop I got the stash at was downsizing/remodeling and getting rid of all the cross stitch. I figured it was a matter of time once the new owner took over. The shop was a combined needlework, cross stitch, and framing shop and the new owner only did needlework only. It's too bad because I've visited the shop for gosh has to be at least 15 years.
Here's what I picked up - no new charts (the new owner hadn't picked up any newly released charts since she took over and the selection was huge, but a lot of very old charts) but I did find a lot of nice hand-dyed fabrics and basic whites/neutral tans. I picked up what I could get my hands on. I also picked up all the WDW & GAST that I knew of for projects I wanted to complete. Everything was 50%.
The shop was also selling all the models on display. It was kind of annoying trying to get the Owner to price them. She admitted to me if she didn't like it she sold it cheap.....if she did like it, she would select this crazy price......anyway, I had admired this nativity set for as long as I can remember and luckily it was one of the pieces she didn't like because I got it for $25! It'll be fun displaying this during the holidays (I might just leave it out year round ;) )
Now onto the tiring task of finishing our bathroom. We've finished what were going to do for now (want to do the floor someday soon). As you can see in this panoramic trip around the room - it's tiny bathroom!
I'm really proud of the pull out drawers Bruce built for me. I've got so much more space and can actually put my morning stuff away now. I'm very lucky to have someone so handy.
I want to thank everyone for reading my blog and commenting. I really enjoy getting your comments. Until next time, happy stitching :)
