Stitching Weekend!

My stitching order arrived! Fabrics, threads and wonderful charts! Included in my new stash are Christmas Garden by BBD, Gathering Basket by BBD, Hedgerow Birds by BBD (which is due to ship out soon), Wild Rose by BBD, Bless my scissors by NFF, Sergei by PSS and A Stitcher's Heart/Gentle Stitches by LHN and Shakespeare Peddler. Several of these included more than one design to stitch so I feel like I got double the order! And by the way, the soon to be released Mother's Garden by BBD is already on my next list!


One chart that made onto my order list came as a surprise to me. Boris by PSS. We are not pet owners at this time (although we occasionally think about making the leap again). I have always been a dog person and loved having one around. I do miss our sweet Whiner even after all this time. But back to Boris. I have wanted this pattern since Paulette first released it but felt I should wait until we decided to get another dog before adding it to my stash (just my own quirk). Maybe it was his sleepy soulful eyes but it was like picking up a puppy in a pet shop. I caved and brought Boris home!


They are all wonderful designs and several are designated to become pillows for my bench project. I really wrestled on whether to get Christmas Garden. I absolutely love it and all the ones I have seen stitched on other blogs just made me want it even more! But the size! I had promised myself that I would not start another BAP until a few of my WIPs were finished up but those deer, the family initials, the birds and beautiful trees just took control of my senses! I was under the influence of the stitching needle!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
