RAK'd and Stashed

The mail brought me a wonderful RAK - from Corinna. She had noticed a chart form my wish list and offered it to me - I was so happy to get it and in the package she also included a few unexpected charts!!! That was so very sweet and thoughtful - her is a snap -

The chart from my list is the "Softly Walk" from La D Da - I am just loving the La-D-Da pieces like this one and think they would look just great stitched up and framed in a grouping. The other mail was some stashing - Everyone by now knows how much I love that silk from Belle Soie - AND they just released some new colours - what was I supposed to do - not get some???? I didn't get them all, yet - here's a snap -

This picture just bites, sorry!! The BS colours are just gorgeous especially the one called "mahogany." The CHS chart is an older one I wanted and the Plum Street one is a new on I just really fell for. Not that I am all that jazzed about the red, white and blue colour scheme - I just like the layout of the birds, letters and flags, and the little JBW chart one I didn't have. The WDW floss is some for an upcoming exchange - It seems that no matter how many colours of floss I have I always need a few for something. I am sure its a conspiracy within the industry!!!!

I am cutting it short this morning as I got a late start.
Tomorrow there will be no post as I am taking a day off - more about that on Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take care,


  1. What a great stash haul, Edgar! I would love to walk into a shop and buy floss to my heart's content! I have one Belle Soie Cranberry that I have yet to try. Maybe I'm afraid I'll get hooked too?

    I love the Free Bird too and agree with you about the colours. I think someone (perhaps you?) could stitch it up using different colours and it'll look amazing. Hmmm?

  2. New charts and new threads, can there be a better way to spend the day?

  3. Great Stash!!! I totally agree with the conspiracy thing on the floss!!!

  4. Lovely stash!! Love the BS fibers!
