New Stash

If you have not been watching the Eastern Bluebird cam on my blog, the baby bluebirds are growing very quickly.  They are now fully feathered, although you can still see the feather shaft on the wing feathers, but they are flapping their wings in the nest preparing for that first flight.  They will be leaving the nest very soon.

Since DH borrowed my camera, he returned it with drained batteries, so I pulled in a substitution and used the photo function on the video camera to take these photos.  It takes much better video than photos.

On a recent trip into NOLA, I made a quick stop at my favorite LNS and picked up a couple of things . . .

28ct Cashel Linen (Taupe),
28ct 100% Linen (Shell, Monet Blue & China Pearl)
and Lizzie Kate's "Forgive Quickly"
The wonderful Marian from Gumbo and Grits sent me several charts from her stash that were on my wish list.  If you have not visited Marian's blog yet, check out some of her beautiful stitching.

Little House Needleworks "Heart of America"
The Sampler Girl "Fancy a Jane Day?"

The Cricket Collection
"On the First Day of Christmas", "On the Fourth Day of Christmas",
"On the Seventh Day of Christmas" and "My True Love Gave to Me"

Bent Creek "Winter Snapperland series"
"Chalet", "Sleigh Ride", "Le Rink" & "The Villa"

Little House Needleworks "Queen Bee" and "Chocolate Box" patterns

The Stitching Parlor " Mr. and Mrs. Darcy of Pemberly"
Rosewood Manor "And a Forest Grew"

Thanks Marian for your wonderfully generous gift!

I am fancying a "Jane Day", a cup of tea, a couple of Jane Austen DVDs and some beautiful linen and thread - sure does beat Calgon!

Oh, I almost forgot, I have one more stitching stash acquisition . . .

. . . sigh . . .
Hopefully these will speed up my stitching.


  1. What a nice collection you have accumulated! Looks like you will be busy stitching for awhile... happy stitching!

  2. Super nice stash and oh my! the charts you received are wonderful
    The birdcam is awesome, I could watch it all day, never know what you might see

  3. Thanks for the kind words. I must prefer that my chart stash finds its way to a good home! Have a good Easter!

  4. Funny... I take my glasses OFF to see to stitch!
