Nashville Stash and Eggie Goodness

Saturday, Christin, Tracey and I had a great little road trip down to Knowledge and Needles in Brighton!  It was great to take my car out for a good long run, and yes its still love at first sight!  All three of us were polite on Saturday and bought some lovely new stash at Ann's.


Here's my wee, but costly stash haul!  I wasn't crazy over the new designs that were released in Nashville, a lot of primitive stuff which isn't my tastes as you all know from this blog I don't go there with my stitching.  I bought 4 fat quarters the colours are: bedazzled blue, butterfly blue, raw linen, and taupe.  I also bought a handful of GAST Limited Edition colours, great for motifs and ornament-like stitching.  Oh and I couldn't resist the pink ribbon stork scissors since I fundraise for The Run For The Cure every year!


Stitching wise, Saturday was not as productive as I liked... you know driving and visiting friends and all that!  But here's my egg as of tonight!

I'm so happy its March!  My stressful period at work is OVER what a relief!  Spring is on its way (though the -17c temperature this morning didn't really give any indicators of spring), which means I look forward to starting road running again.  Spring Break is almost here!!!  I'm off as of 3:30 PM on Friday for a week!  In just over a week I'll be at another Timberhouse Retreat hosted by Knowledge and Needles, and of course my favourite part of the month... my birthday on the 27th!!!  No wonder I love March right?

Great stash, those fabrics and great colours and I love the scissors.
EOW is looking great, the end is in sight and I'll bet with the week off and a retreat looming you'll make good progress on it.

Lynn said...

Pretty fabrics! I'd planned on going to Ann's but my son landed in for the weekend so that squashed my plans.

I see a happy dance in your near future. With March break here, perhaps that dance will be a jig in time for St. Patrick's!

Suzanne said...

Nice stash, it's amazing how much it all costs and how it can add up quite quickly.

Beautiful progress on your egg, a finish is so close now.
