Final New Stash of the Year!

Hello one and all!

I intend to join in with Stitch From Stash next year, so as I still have some birthday money left over (and I know my mum wants to buy me some stash for Christmas) I decided to have a final splurge on charts before being tied down to a budget. Also I have a stinking cold and feel awful so the retail therapy has been good medicine for my recovery!!!

I naughtily bought:

Rabnann (ebay)
Elephant Herd
Stitch count 248 wide by 174 high

theworldinstitches (etsy)
The Four Harry Potter Houses
Stitch counts 95-97 wide by 117-118 high

UAHomeMadeStudio (etsy)
Winter Owl
Stitch count 88 wide by 87 high

UnconventionalX (etsy)
OMG Tigger is Out
Stitch count 162 wide by 200 hig

This is the most expensive single chart I have ever bought. I just love the realistic-looking raindrops and the sadness of the cat so it had to be MINE! It is definitely going to be started once I have completed my latest stint on Dolphin Ruins and it already has a WIP progress bar waiting to be filled!

Gloria and Pat
Stitch counts 71-149 wide by 73-124 high

How cute are these?! They are not as small as I thought they would be, measuring about 100 x 100 but I don't care. I love and want to stitch them all!

Love Thy Thread
Stitch count 170 wide by 170 high

So that's it! I certainly don't NEED any more charts. I just have to force myself not to look ever ever ever ever ever ever again!

I hope all of your Christmas preparations are going well. We've still got the tree and a few more decorations to put up but there's plenty of time yet. We tend to do a little bit each day rather than all at once as it gives the children something to look forward to when they come home from school.

Until next time.....

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

So cheeky!!! I LOOOOVE the Harry Potter charts and the awesome little owl, and the poor little kitty in the rain :D Such great new stash!
I wish you very good luck with the stitch from stash. I love the idea but truly believe I would fail miserably if I tried :) I'm still going to try to stitch what I have, that's the plan...
Hope you get better soon (best have it now than during the Christmas Hol). We will decorate our tree this weekend xox

I love the winter owl.

Lots of lovely stash there! I don't think there would be much point me signing up for Stitch from Stash, whenever I set "rules" like that I feel the need to break them!
