stashings and a bit of kinkade

Got more stuff from ebay :) boy is my stash growing this year.I also took a shopping trip this week.

I got my taxes in the other day so I decided to treat myself to some cross stitch goodness, so I went to hobby lobby and michaels and did a little shopping. I dont often go to michaels because they downsized their needlework section so much. I found a couple of cute patterns including a frog one. I think I want to do a small section of frogs for one of my walls. so far I've got 2 finished ones. and at michaels they had a few fabrics on sale so I got a 25 count linen for a cat pattern that I've been wanting to do.

one of the things I got at hobby lobby was the disney dreams collection "snow white discovers the cottage. the artwork was originally thomas kinkade and its really pretty. It'll be the first time I have worked a full coverage pattern.

of course I just had to start it even though I swore I wasn't going to start anything big till I finished at least one of my big WIPs. Only got a few stitches done, but still started it.


  1. Thomas Kinkade's paintings are used jor jigsaws which I love doing. I didn't realise you could get them in cross stitch patterns. It will be awesome and I look forward to seeing it grow.

    Wishing you a good weekend.

    1. :) Hobby lobby carries quite a few thomas kinkade cross stitches, they are all part of the disney dreams collection. Thanks for the encouragement cause it'll be the most complex pattern I've done yet
