Some Stash from Celebrations...

As you know, Celebration of Needlework sets up a shopping mall and this year they did an exceptional job with a great variety of vendors.  The problem with that is the ridiculous amount of shopping that I did.  The only comfort is that I was NOT alone in my stash enhancing.  Sorry the pics are so dark but it has been overcast for a long time and now when the sun does make its way out I get an instant migraine because my eyes can't handle the light.

This is a project roll by Jackie De Plessis.  She had a wonderful booth this year with kits for many of her previous classes and also offered many sewing supplies and stitching goodies.  This project roll keeps your work flat and the ends open to reveal space for chart and threads and the opposite end has a pin cushion.  Of course, I picked blue but she had them in many colors and 2 different sizes.  I also go the matching snap pouch to keep other goodies needed for stitching. 

 
These are 2 kits from Jackie.  One is a frog on a lily pad for "frogging" and the onther is a sewing accessories with flower beeswax.  Too Cute!

These are 2 books and 2 needlebooks from Scandanavian Stitches and the French Needle.  The blue needle book has a lovely ceramic Hedgehog button.  Not sure why I love hedge hogs but it has something to do with the cute face but the bristlely nature.  As if to say look at me but don't touch me.  The books have beautiful floral and summer motifs worked in Flower Thread.  I enjoy working with flower thread because it has great coverage.

Something different!  Wool felted pin cushion.  Not sure I will be able to figure this out but bought it on a whim because I missed my "Daisy".

Most unusual thing I bought.  Edward Scissor Fish.  I couldn't resist.  I love beading and the shop model was precious.  There are MANY packets of beads and it will take lots of time to stitch them on but the end result will be darling.  By the way, I bought the BLUE kit.  Surprise Right??!!

This kit came from The French Needle. It had the presewn sewing pouch with a stitchable band.  I also picked up the little bird thread keep to tuck inside.  This will stitch up quickly and it is something I can take with me on the go.  I will most likely work on it during the many upcoming baseball games the boys have.

And lastly, the scissor addiction.  I couldn't shop and not find a pair of scissors.  I picked up a few minis and a pair of Bohin scissors which I have never seen before.  Really, how many pair do we need??  Not sure but I did get excited to find the new ones.  Thanks for checking out my stash.  My next update will be a stitchy one.  I haven't finished anything but have lots of WIPS to share.  Until next time, Happy Stitching Everyone!

Oh Nataly.....you really have a wonderful stash from Celebrations! I especially love the beautful Jackie DuPlessis project roll and little stitching bag to go with it. Blue is one of my favorite colours too. Will look forward to seeing some of your newest projects stitched up in the future! Hope you find some special stitching time in your busy schedule soon! Lovely little scissors too!
