Promises and stash

I have kept my promise to post today!!!! I did get a full blown migraine yesterday but took my Relpax and it was on it's way out all that was left was the tingling in my neck which is a sure sign of its demise!!!! I took it easy today having breakfast outside and stitching a bit in the afternoon. Then it was off to Pilates Mat class. I do like it but I'm still adjusting since it doesn't involve equipment like the reformer or chair but is all you!!!! I am a bit sore but it feels good. Then after walk around the neighborhood with my puppy the evening is mine since DH is at work. So now that I've filled you in on my day on to pictures!!!

First the stash as promised..... . This appealed to me since reading Jane Austen! I am so liking LHN all of a sudden!!! And another HAED... I have no intention of starting this one anytime soon but it so reminded me of the Elves in Lord of The Rings that I couldn't resist especially during this weeks sale on charts. I read LOTR about nine yes nine times and loved it more with each read.....It reminds me of the scene where the elves are leaving MiddleEarth......And lastly my first Chatelaine.... I simply fell in love with the colors and have no intention of starting this one yet either but I will have it when the mood strikes......Someone at SP yesterday said "did you see all the beads on it?" I just thought it was too beautiful to care about the enormous amount of beads.....

And my new start as of tonight..... It is PR's Fairy Celebration 3. I had the fabric in my stash it's PTPlus 32ct Kermit!!!! And the thread is from Threadworks a really pretty overdyed purple. And since Fairy day is June 24th it seems appropriate to start! Now to get fairy celebration 2 done as well. If you may recall I did Fairy Celebration 1 twice.......

I was thinking of stopping my FOTM from Silkweavers but then I got this beautiful piece and think maybe not just yet.... It Poltergeist 32ct Lugana... the color is a soft pale purple and oh so luscious!!!!

I am grateful for quiet days off and stitching.....

  4. As usual Juls, I'm drooling over your stash! I'm totally In Love with Golden Wood, too! Oh, what I've give to go back to my PT job and all those hours in the day I used to have left for myself. Stitching hours!! Remember, we have to get synchronized one of these days and stitch our Little Witches! Maybe towards the end of the Summer?

  5. Oh my I'm so glad I don't have to put pictures of my stash out on my blog. I'd be ashamed! They could put me in prison for the rest of my life and I wouldn't be bored for one single minute!

    I love your fairies, so beautiful. Now I want to start one myself :-)

  9. Oooooo!!! I want to be right there with you, Juls! What fun we'd have looking and touching that stash you have. I love everything. I have the HAED and Chatelaine in my stash,too. Have started the Taj Mahal and I love it. Don't worry about the beads, they just enhance things...bead as you go, though! Sending much love and hugs, Deb

  11. Your new patterns are wonderful Juls. Just the look of joy and excitement on your face when you chose them was fantastic.

    Love the fabric/floss combination for your fairy. Hope you have started her so that I can see her Wednesday.

  13. Cool stash! I have a small collection of Chatelaines hanging out in my piles -- not the one you have but I've been wanting to get that one for a while. I think they are beautiful, but I worry that they're so intensive and large that they'll end up gracing my UFO shelf.

    Enjoy it all!

  14. Pretty fabrics!
    I'm sure you'll tame that LHN bookshelf thing in no time.
