A little Stash, A Little Stitching!

I have received alittle new stash from Nashville. (click on the pictures to get a better view). First up is A Stitcher's Journey by BBD. I LOVE this book. It was worth the price for me. I also got Love Scissor Tag by DT, Miaou Cui-cui bt Tournicoton (very cute cat design), Glory and Julius Gobblefree by AuryYM ( I can't help myself with these guys. I just love them) and lastly Plenty and Grace by Primitive Traditions. This is the most beautiful sampler. I have afew more things coming soon. I will post them when they get here.
I have gotten about half way on May. The fabric is Lambswool Jobelan and is much litter than the picture shows. It's a fun stitch.

Sorry that the picture is turned. Blogger wouldn't let me correct it. Anyway, this is from the new Just Cross Stitch magazine. I must say that the last few issues have been excellent. I really like the pin pillow and Belinda's sampler from Blue ribbon Designs. But this sampler caught my eye. It's a beautiful four season band sampler from Sally Hesketh. It starts with Spring and the other seasons will follow in the coming months. My Wednesday stitching group is going to do this as a SAL. There will be 8 of us doing it. Two of the girls are teachers, so we won't be starting until the summer. It will be great!
Thanks for the good wishes for Cheryl's Mom. She is back in her apartment and doing really well. I loved all the comments on my last post. Thanks so much. I truley appreciate the fact that you read my blog and leave wonderful comments. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

OH lovely stash there Deb, I have the book coming from the U.S. so I have a while longer to wait.
There are some super things coming out of Nashville.

What a fun bunch of designs! You definitely have the knack of picking cool charts.

I love the new JCS issue. For once I wasn't the last subscriber to get mine! I don't usually do larger designs, but a couple of those are really calling my name so we'll see.

Great stash additions. I absolutely NEED to get Stitcher's Journey by BBD!! I've been drooling over it for some time now. I too agree with you and the other's about how JCS have put out some good issues lately. I had let me subscription run out but am rethinking that now.

Margaret said...

Great stash! Great May progress too. I've been enjoying the JCS more than usual recently as well. I really like the piece you're planning on doing an SAL on.

Oh what beautiful treats you have Deborah!
I love DT and BBD. I have the first Gobble Couple but haven't seen these. Aren't they cute?

I agree, this newest issue of JCS has some beautiful designs in it. The band sampler caught my eye too. A great idea for a SAL....

"MAY" looks great. It's really coming along. You'll have that finished soon.

Have a good rest of the week :)

I hope you enjoy all of your lovely new stash, would you mind telling me what exactly is Nashville Market? I keep seeing it on blogs but I have no idea what it is, we don't have it here in the UK. Or at least, I don't think we do LOL
Keep up the excellent progress on May, it's coming along so well. Happy stitching!
