New Stash




"hop!" Tin top finished 4-25

There is nothing like new stash to lift your spirits and this sure did the trick. Several weeks ago Deborah M and I were talking about this Limited Edition set by Just Nan and how sorry we were that it sold out so quickly. The sets were limited to just 900 produced and while that may seem like a lot it really isn't when you consider how many stitchers there are out there. Try to be funny (as in haha) she asked the ladies at the House of Stitches about them. Lo and behold they had 2 of the kits left and hadn't even put them on their website yet. We are now the proud owners of "hop!" and as you can see I have finished stitching the first top to the tin. I will be stitching two of these, one for Deborah since she can't see to stitch on the linen and one for me. It took less than 2 days to finish the stitching and since the finishing instructions are very clear it should be fairly easy to put together which I hope to do this weekend. The fob will be next and should go quickly too. It's not only a fob but also a little needlebook. These are just the first in a series of 4. Next will be "sizzle" in June, then "boo! and last "jingle" I can't wait to see what the others will be. I will post another pic when I get these all together.
I also want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayer for my DH Tracy. He is doing much better. We were able to go out to Michael's and to lunch yesterday without it increasing his pain. Today it is even better, Have to go out again tomorrow to mail my grandsons birthday package, and maybe go out to breakfast. Speaking of my grandson (will be 7 on the first of May), he sent me a letter which I received today. His mother had no idea what was in it, he wouldn't let her read it. In the letter he asked me to come to his house soon. Isn't that sweet. I won't be going for another visit until Fall as I can't take the summer humidity there any more.
Time to get back to stitching so....
Until next time......Happy Stitching
