Oh my, it has been ages since I shared my latest stashquisitions with you, so this is a lot! But since the beginning of this year, a lot of things turned up here and I went to a craft fair yesterday (which was exhausting and expensive and a lot of fun!), so I thought I might as well share all the stuff that turned up here and maybe this will remind me of not spending so much money anymore :D
First up are some digital patterns.
I bought another Haed - my first max color design! It's called Birds and Blooms Garden by Aimee Stewart and contains 240 colors, oh my! I love the desing and I saw someone work on it (both the max color and the normal version) and decided that this was a good MC start since the design is not to big (only 725x262 stitches).
Then I went to visit the Golden Kite website and you know - if you buy 3 patterns or more, they give you an additional 30% discount. So I bought 3 patterns on sale!
The first one is called "A morning bouquet"by Alfred Guillou - I seem to have a hang for flowers these days ;-) I love the colors and her face =)
The second one I bought is called "Still life with fruit and champagne" by Helen Searle. I always wanted to do a still life, they are so camling to look at and this one caught my eye. The fruits look so ralistic and I love the shadowing in the twig. The reflection in the champagne glass is amazing and I just love the whole design. This one might actually be on my next GK start list (it will take ages to kit up... and a lot of skeins... it's over 350 000 stitches)
Madeline after prayer" by Daniel Maclise and I just love the detail in this piece!
I bought some stitchy stuff there as well.
I got hold of two new Dimensions Gold Petites kits, They are so pretty (they had a couple on display!) and they are smaller so I might be able to finish them :D
This is Beacon at Rocky Point - another lighthouse one. I don't know what it is with me and lighthouses these days... and it has a cute little seagull!
I'm sorry, but this is complicated to catch on a picture, these are made of silver and feature garnets:
This post was exhausting for me to write and I am sure the load of pictures here is surely exhausting for you to look at :D That's why I rarely do stash posts :D
Anyway, I am back to stitching now!
Happy stitching =)
