Stitchy Stash News

Here is the latest vacation additions to my stash:
Where Stitchers Gather actually arrived AFTER I left for vacation, so I am counting it as vacation stash. :) The Sarah Munday sampler was on the wall at In Stitches in Alexandria, VA. It was stunning! A wonderful needlepoint/cross stitch store only a stone's throw away from Mt. Vernon.
Rainforest Crunch by Needle Delights has been on my want list for a while. It has SOME of the threads to go with it. Also, check out the Grime Stoppers. They are slipped over the edges of stretcher bars (or scroll frames, I suppose) to keep finger marks off. No matter how careful I am to wash my hands, I still manage to leave marks. So I am hoping this will help.
Here are a few canvases I picked up. Three of them (and the Grime Stoppers) were in a clearance bin at Threads LLC in Charlottesville, VA. Yes, that is $5 on Dorothy and Toto! The Painted Pony angel is to commemorate our trip to Yellowstone National Park 2 years ago. We are planning to revisit next year with some friends.
A beautiful Mother Goose canvas from French Knot in Raleigh, NC. Also clearanced for $20!
And the piece de resistance--Raymond Crawford canvas from In Stitches! Just love the bright colors, 18 mesh, etc. But, it is going on my canvas wall to admire until I get to it.
Check back tomorrow for ACTUAL stitching updates!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to the East Coast!! I LOVE the Sarah Mundy piece too! I have actually had the pleasure of visiting Edna's house and have seen her original shop model used to photograph in the chart! If you can imagine all the samplers produced by Threads of Gold....They are all hanging in her home...Stunning, you would be in awe...Again, happy to see another Threads of Gold sampler lover out there!!! Enjoy, Faye

Wow, a lot of great stash! I just love all of it! Both the xstitch and needlepoint (that being a great love of mine too). Would have loved to have seen Sarah Mundry - I've had that in my stash for years. And love that Adam and Eve too.!
