It's been awhile since I've added goodies to my stash.
However, not long ago, some things got my attention, a couple of
books and a pincushion pattern that I saw in 2 blogs,
Because of the pincushion pattern, well, the materials/supplies
to make them were part of the bounty.
A Garden Pincushion pattern by Lynette Anderson,
Seasons (Cosmo) variegated embroidery floss and a
few fat quarters of Secret Garden fabric by Lynette Anderson.
I expect to work on a few pincushions
here and there as time permits.
I will not be using the buttons that came with the pattern
but some wood ones that I already had on my stash.
These skeins of variegated thread have such pretty colors in
them, however I was playing with the darker 8042 one and
it takes a while to change from one color to another when
hand embroidering, perhaps is a different story when cross stitching so
because of that I won't be using that one for the pincushions but
the 8050 and 8065 ones.
Look at this particular one... lots of vibrant colors in one skein.
I forgot to find out if they are colorfast, which is very important
for me (will do that now).
To my surprise I received all these items very quickly,
great customer service indeed!
I didn't spend much on all this because I recycle the $
from some books I sold recently on my shop :-).
I will show you the books I mentioned at the beginning on a future post!
Have you added any recent goodies to your stash?
