More stash arrived

WOO HOO!!! My magazine arrived! I ordered the premier Halloween issue of the Just Cross Stitch magazine and I LOVE IT!!!!! They have the most adorable ornaments in it that I will be stitching.
I also won some Lizzie Kate charts on ebay that are in the mail right now. I got the spring, summer, & autumn samplers, meow flip it block, and Jan - Sept of the flip it blocks. I've got a bid on the Oct flip it block, so just will need the Nov & Dec (and also the winter sampler). Well, time to stitch! Thanks for stopping by.

Finally checking in

Wow, it's been a month since I've posted here. Haven't had any stitching I could post, since I've been working on some squares that are going to be a surprise for someone. Never know if that person will see my blog, so have to refrain from posting pics until after the person has received the surprise. Anyway, I've gotten the Halloween stitching bug and have some ornaments I plan to stitch. I found a few cute pieces of fabric at Wal-Mart for the ornament backings.
I've also been adding to my stash over the past few months. Have won some good ebay auctions and made orders at 123 Stitch and Down Sunshine Lane. Oh, this internet just makes it way too easy to acquire more stash. LOL Anyway, here's some pics of my recent stash additions. On the left is the crop-a-dile so I can make some floss tags. In the center is a pair of Gingher lions tail embroidery scissors. On the right is a star detailer to assist with weaving in thread ends. I just love all my new tools. Finally, I'd like to thank some of my online friends for giving me the Kreativ Blog Award. I'm just glad you enjoy my blog enough to think of me for it. However, there are so very many people that truly deserve this award, I would never be able to only pick a few. So I will just pass on accepting the award. Please know that I am truly honored that you thought of me. Thank you so very much!!!!! And thanks to everyone who reads my blog and leaves comments for me. I do so appreciate it!
