Finishes and stash

 Hello again!  I have some stash and a couple of finishes to show. 

Hope Song by Heartstring Samplery

Christmas Snowfall Biscornu by Just Nan, Chubby Bee by Jeannette Douglas, Fourth of July Rules by Primrose Cottage, Owlvira's Frightful House by Just Nan, and some linen.

Harvest Tiny Town, Frosty Tiny Town, Any Tiny Town, More Any Town Tiny Town, Seaside Tiny Town, and Patriotic Tiny Town, all by Heart in Hand Needleart.  Christmas Eve Mouse and Rose Heart Bunny by Just Nan.  The Queen Bee by October House Fiber Arts.

I knew I had some more!

One of the Tiny Town's that I thought was in the other pile.  Bees in the Greenhouse by the Blue Flower, Christmas Countdown by Erica Michaels, more linen, the 2023 JCS Christmas Ornament issue, Hardanger Filling Stitches by Yvette Stanton, Songbird Serenade by Counting Puddles.

Needle Travel.  Lists all of the known shops in each state and their locations.  Lists quilt, yarn, embroidery, cross stich, needlepoint, spinning, and weaving shops. I hope to put it to good use!

Timely Trinkets November Edition by Joseph's Workshop.  I finished this one.  

I was not impressed by the kit.  The linen was cut wonky and not serged.  The kit included a size 24 needle which was way too big for 32 count linen.  For the price I paid, it should have been nicer.  I probably won't buy another, even though they are adorable.  The above gets finished to go in the little box 2 pictures up.  Oh, and there are no finishing instructions included in the kit and the chart was very hard to read.  

Whew!  That's a lot of stash!  I think that should hold me for a bit.  Maybe.....

See you soon!

Your finish of Hope Song is fabulous, Terri. What super additions to your stash! While that pumpkin with the little wood box is darling, I'm with you that it wasn't worth the cost. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Terri: Hope Song is lovely.
Great stash haul, I have heard of the Needle Travel books but have never seen one, two stores closing here in Minnesota Crafts Direct and Stitchville USA, mt favorite needlework store Stitchville has 25% off now soon she will be closed.
Love the box, so sad that they did not send directions on how to finish and what a large needle they sent you, I do like the design but the fabric looks very different.
Have an amazing week.
