The Stash Faery strikes again...

Wooooo Hoooo.... two new beginnings for me! I started The Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks and Easter Avenue by Glendon Place on Wednesday... I haven't had a chance to stitch a lot on them yet... but I have started and that's a beginning... ;-) I had to work Wednesday and Thursday, and it was fairly hectic both days... I just don't understand why folks can't live in peace... Oh well, suffice it to say, I didn't have a lot of stitching time... Today, I had to go grocery shopping, and had a few errands to run and then there was housework.... mind you I didn't do too much of that! lol Just some laundry and tidyed up a wee bit here and there... and it was my dear daughter, Brandy's birthday... :-) So, needless to say, I haven't so much as picked up my needle! Not to fret as tomorrow is another day... and I have both it and Sunday free... So, can you guess how I'll be spending the rest of my weekend off? ;-)

The Stash Faery dropped off the stash for my two new projects last week... along with some other early birthday stash of which I will share piccys in a couple of days... I'm still waiting on some fabby to go with a couple of projects... I just love keeping you all in suspense! ;-)



The Chocolate Shoppe by Little House Needleworks...

Vintage Country Mocha Cashel with DMC Threads

and Antique Gold Kreinik #4 Braid


LHN The Chocolate Shoppe... Started 13th March 2007

Easter Avenue by Glendon Place...

Moonglow Cashel Picture This Plus Linen

Weeks Dye Works and DMC Threads...

I'm loving working on both of these... I didn't have time to sitch on Easter Avenue at all on Thursday... so will show a progress piccy of it tomorrow as I only got a few stitches in on it on Wednesday... I'm loving both of these! The fabby is gorgeous and the colours in both designs are so lovely... Easter Avenue is so Springy and I must say, it's such a cheerful stitch! :-)

Sally and Sue I wish you had the time to stitch CCN's Geranium House with me... You just may be tempted once you see it... ;-) I can't believe I'm starting so many new projects... hehehe And I'm also going to start Spring Has Come by The Prairie Schooler this Wednesday! lol Yes, daft I know!

Well, I guess I should go for now... I haven't been sleeping well the last several weeks and it's beginning to take it's toll ... last night I finally slept about 7 hours... but Tuesday and Wednesday I only slept a total of five hours for both nights! Needless to say, I was exhausted... and those long 12 hour work days seemed to drag on forever... Yet, as tired as I was, I just could not go to sleep... Oh well, I'm away to my bed now and hopefully will have a nice long and restful sleep so I can catch up with my stitching and blogging tomorrow and Sunday! :-)

Thanks for all the tips on uploading piccys... I'm going to try uploading from photobucket or webshots and see what happens! lol Hopefully, it will work... And thank you all for visiting... Your kind and lovely thoughts bring sunbeams of happiness to my days...

***Edited to add... Well, uploading the piccys did not work... sigh... I tried uploading them from my PC into my Wish List blog... and it worked just fine... but when I uploaded them here it did not work at all! I just don't get it! I'll try again tomorrow as I'm fed up just now and away to my bed....***

***Edited again to add... Okay, so I had an idea and could not rest until I tried it... I went back to my Wish List blog and rearranged the photos and it seems if you click and drag your photos to a different spot in your post once you've downloaded them the automatic link in blogger will not work... Hmmmm so how the bloody heck does one go about beating this? I know you don't have to have all your photos at the top of your post... Good grief, I've seen blogs with clickable photos that showed full size and they were not all at the top of the post! I tried uploading from photobucket... but the fabric in the smaller size piccy in the post looked distorted... That's it! I am away to my bed this time!***

***Yes, I know I am completely daft! I just had to come back and link the piccys I uploaded from my PC to the piccys I had uploaded in photobucket... that will have to do.... Woooo Hooo I tested it and that seems to work just fine! :-) This time I really am away to my bed... nite-nite all...***

Until next time... Love in Stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... starting new projects and the Stash Faery...

Lovely starts! Those fabrics are gorgeous. :)

Sue said...

Love your two new pieces. Easter Parade's colors are just gorgeous, that looks like it will be a fun one to stitch.

Hazel said...

Love your new projects. They look so good with all those flossies next to them.
Happy stitching.

Sally said...

You have made a lovely start on Chocolate Shoppe Lizzy! I must get on with mine this Wednesday after two weeks not stitching on it! The Glendon Place piece looks so cute. I'm looking forward to seeing your WIP pics on it.

I may well stitch LHN Geranium House later on. I'm not sure yet. It's a nice piece but I am not really keen on geraniums, although my Dad lives them and used to grow them year after year. Maybe I can stitch it for him for Father's Day in June!

Nice start on Chocolate Shoppe. Hmmm that fabric really looks familiar, LOL. Easter Ave. looks like it will be fun to do as well. Hope you get some sleep, as it sounds like you have a stitching marathon coming up. Looking forward to seeing what all you get done this weekend.

As to Geranium House, I have the fabric and floss (pattern is on order). So.. if I get done with some of the other ones I have going, or if after looking at yours and others progress shots I just can't resist, I should be able to pick it up and start it. It is a pretty piece, so who knows, I may not be able to resist joining another SAL after all.

Hi Lizzy,

I saw your comment on my blog so thought I'd pay you a visit! I just finished Chocolate Shoppe today and am getting ready to post it on my blog. You will thoroughly enjoy this stitch.

Have a great weekend,

Lovely starts! The photos come big when I click them.....when I upload through blogger I click "none" for position so I can drag and drop the photo where I want it....but it took me awhile...HTH

Paula said...

Hiya....your 2 new pieces are gorgeous and I love the fabbie you're using.

Happy stitching....

Hi Lizzy, how lovely of you to drop by my blog and leave a comment. I very much appreciate you taking the time. Of course I don't mind you adding me to your blogroll. I have added you to mine as well. I enjoyed looking through your blog. Everything is so lovely and you write so beautifully.
I recognise your little 'signature' blackbird from a few years ago. A group we where in together but I can't remember which one. (sigh)
So glad to be able to 'catch up' with you again. (smile)

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog :)
I've got you on my bloglines so I'll definitely be coming back to visit as you and I have very similar tastes in designs :)
I love your start on the coffee house :) That fabric is PERFECT for it. And doesn't Glendon's Place just have the most precious designs? Can't wait to see more!
