Wow, today was a GREAT stashy mail day! Two orders I placed last week both arrived today. The first was an order from Drema at Needlecraft Corner (my favorite ONS):
The first part of the order was my auto-ship of the latest Ornament of the Month collection from Little House Needleworks. This is an on-going series that I’ve been collecting since it began last year. We won’t talk about the fact that I’ve only stitched one of them so far.
Next up, I was very excited to get my hands on the new Halloween Collection book hot off the presses from Just Cross Stitch! It has over 50 Halloween designs, everything from ornaments to full-size designs. There are 36 brand new designs, 15 “favorite” designs from previous Just Cross Stitch magazine Halloween issues, plus a Tombstone Angel (Susanna Goose) from Carriage House Samplings. I’ve already spied a couple of designs I definitely want to stitch! Looks like I’ll need to invest in some Prank or Voodoo from Picture This Plus the next time I’m at my LNS.

The last thing you might notice in the pic above is actually some freebie designs. Drema is awesome and always includes a nice little bundle of freebies with every order. I was thrilledwhen I saw this latest bundle included the oldie but goodie “Sew & Sew” freebie from Mary Garry’s Sewing Cabin! I love Mary Garry designs.
The second package I got today was from Inspired Needle. I recently saw a pic Valerie posted on her blog of her finished Boo Club bell pull from Lizzie Kate. As soon as I saw the hardware she bought at Inspired Needle to use for it, I immediately went online to their website and bought it because it. is. perfect. for Boo Club! Be sure to click and biggify the pics to really check out the tombstones. They’re so fun!!

It’s called “6 Fat Men” which is a new Flip-It series from Lizzie Kate. It comes as 6 separate charts which can either be stitched individually or put together as shown in the photo above. The chart for putting it all together in a single piece can be downloaded for free from the Lizzie Kate site. I may have to contact Drema again to buy her fabric/fiber kit and get on the auto-ship for the charts on this one!
Well, that’s it from me for now. Until next time …
