About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

New 2009 Start & Stash Pics

What could be better than stitching and stashing in the new year?? More stitching and stashing!!!!

Don't worry, I have been very good. The collage I am sharing with you today is a compilation of items that are have been in my stash for months.

Little pretties that I picked up during my Summer vacation and have recently re-discovered leading to a "there you are" moment. Yes, I have lots of those "aha" moments because I have ALOT of stash.

I find that going through my stash gives me a new perspective on my stitching taste. One thing that I was pleasantly surprised to find were 2 Prairie Schooler freebies. Although I am not a fan, I must admit these are pretty cute! I can see these stitching at least the snowman for 2009.

It seems that my tastes have ventured into the over-dyed fibers. Those pictured are some of my favorite combinations. Eucalyptus by Weeks Dye Works happens to have attracted me more than any. Hopefully, I will find a pretty pattern that will showcase its beauty.

My Mirabilia stash happens to be growing at a steady pace. Let's see if I can stitch some of those pretty ladies soon.

Oh yes, there is a Just Nan "Over the Top" Boo. I hope to stitch at least the design as one of my Halloween projects.

Okay, okay, I won't make you wait any longer...... here is my first start of 2009.

Dear Santa, Letter

Please note that I am only stitching the Santa stamp portion of the design as a Christmas Ornament. I think that the Santa is really cute and will make a great addition to my ornies.

As you can tell, I have enough to keep me stitching without going to purchase more. Definitely considering stitching out of my own stash for a few months in 2009. Lots of people are doing it and being very successful.

Wishing you fast stitches.......
