A win, a finish, a "rescue", and some stash!

First, the finish, by Milady's Needle
Next, the win from Winding Vine Wanderings - a pinch pocket - thanks Patti!
Next, the "rescue" from the local Goodwill Store.  Very nicely done!

And finally, some stash!  Some was free and I bought the rest.  Dinky Dyes silks on sale for 40% off, the fabric by Weeks Dye Works for Esther's Waves, a pin, and a chart.

 By Guilda Manfrini (?)  I don't know if I got the name right and I don't have the chart handy right now.  This may be a new start for me soon! :-)
 The above was the free stuff :-)  Amazing Grace chart, White Kitten kit, 30 count linen by Zweigart, and some 28 count evenweave.
Esther's Waves by Northern Expressions Needlework with the 36 ct. linen by Weeks Dye Works and Dinky Dyes silk.

Been busy around here, sorry for the absence.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Just stuff

A beady finish
Butterfly Kisses by Jill Wiseman, permanent finish silver 11/0s, crystal AB bicones

A new bead book.  Gathering supplies for the cover piece and 1 other out of this book.  Can't get the picture to rotate!

A friend gave me all of this that her husband found in a house he was cleaning up.  The 7 balls to the left are a wool/poly blend and the others are all 16/2 cotton.  Each ball of the wool is about 675 yards and each ball of the cotton is 765 yards.

I thought I had more pictures, but cannot find them right now.

Sorry I haven't posted much lately.  Mom had shingles, I  had sciatica, trying to paint the house, mom and I both have been battling allergies lately, plus all the normal house work and the J.O.B.  I  do read all of your blogs, just haven't taken the time to comment much.  I'll try to do better.  Hope you all are well!
