Stash, stash, and more stash

During my pregnancy, I did not touch a needle, and did not even have a look at my stash (thing I like to do when I'm feeling down).

Soooooooo, as a treat for finishing several UFO's lately ;oD and for being a very nice girl (huh huh), I am proud to present my latest ATS's (understand Add To Stash):

A Frog Pile (Design Works)
Moonlight Madness (Mill Hill)
New Heights (Bothy Thread)
Ruby (Bothy Thread)
The Pretend Friend (Bothy Thread)
Stitching Row (Bent Creek)
Stars (Dimensions)

I bought the "Stars" for my daughter Lynn. A few weeks ago, she insisted to learn x-stich with a friend of hers (our neighbour). She tried a year ago but was not patient enough to stick to it. So, I promised her I would get a colourful kit for her. I found this one: colourful, not too hard to start with, contains a hoop and, not too expensive. If she sticks to this one, I'll sure show you her progress. She would be very proud. BUT, let's see first if she really gets into it ;o)

Have a nice day.

The Frog Pile is soooo cute and I know the Stitchers Row is a very quick stitch. Have fun and congratulations but I really could not imagine not stitching for 10 minutes let alone 9 months.
Be always in stitches.

Beautiful charts, Laurence. I hope your daughter will keep her patient to finish the three little cute stars. Looking forward to see her achievement. :)

Thanks a lot ladies ;o) Warmful thanks for your visits.

@Jayne: well, I would never have thought I could stay that long without stitching, but 3 pregnancies amongst which 2 without stitching... Must be an hormonal thing :o/

I hope also that my daughter will be as addicted as me ;o) This would be so much fun...

Have a nice day.

My favorite type of post! Looking at someone's stash! Love those pumpkins! And the frog pile - the green frog on the right in the middle of the pile - DH has a tattoo of that type of frog on his back and another on his right arm. I should find that pattern for him to stitch!

Have a great weekend - Denise
