In anticipation of trying to order only things I really need in 2023, I did a little shopping before the end of the year. This is probably all I have coming. It arrived yesterday and I was pretty lucky. There was no mail delivery but I guess they delivered packages. I looked out the front window to see what the weather was doing and saw the packages on the porch. They would either have stayed there all night or Vince would have found them. Yes, it was good that I found them. 🙂
The first order is from XJu Designs.
Top Row (L to R): 40 count Light Nougat, 40 Count Marbled Pointer, 40 Count Sampler Khaki
Middle Row (L to R): 40 count Early Halloween, 40 count Old Mushroom, 40 count Ash Rose
Bottom Row (L to R): 46 count Marbled Hazelnut, 46 count Frozen Leaves
These were all charts I had wanted for a while and decided I’d better get them before January 1.
Quaker Pumpkin by Hello from Liz Matthews. I’ve liked this before but then I saw one that someone had stitched and at the bottom, they changed the words to say Autumn Harvest and it has a couple of leaves. I really like that and might be able to get this stitched before Fall.
A Yuletide Welcome by Plum Street Samplers. I had not bought this chart before because of the size but now that I’ve been stitching longer, the size doesn’t intimidate me. It’s only 18-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ on 36 count (called for) and 16-5/8″ x 8-5/8″ on 40 count. Maybe I’ll stitch it on the new Marbled Hazelnut 46 count and it would only be 14-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.
Summer Schoolhouse Set of Four by With Thy Needle. I’ve liked these for a long time but never felt sure I’d stitch them all. I think I will so I got those.
OK . . no more shopping for me.
