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.
Dear Santa, Letter
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.

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.......
