Today is STASHMAS!! It's a "stitching holiday" created by the members of crossstitchforum.com to celebrate all things stitchy and delight in the giving and receiving of stash!
I received my gift from Octoberlace, and it is wonderful! Thank you!!
I received a beautiful piece of hand-painted 28 ct lugana from Crossed Wing, and a smaller cut of hand-painted fabric from Dovestitch. I got a pack of Piecemaker neddles, and she slipped in a Bohin needle (her favourite) for me to try. I got a great butterfly pattern with some simple hardanger in it too. It doesn't end there! I got some Carrie's Creations and Threadworx threads, some thread sorting cards, a notebook and some lovely bags of tea. (Which is perfect, cause I love to sip tea and stitch!) How spoiled am I?!?
Below are pics of the stashmas present that I sent to Noctifyre.
And I stitched my first ever humbug just to commemorate Stashmas!! (This is one of Kell's designs.)
All packages should arrive full of stitchy goodness -- seriously!!
