More stash!

But gifts this time. Two nice pieces of post today - the last of the CHS alphabet charts I'm exchanging with Karen (I'll send the ones you're missing Karen when our stuff turns up), and a great envelope of goodies from Holley.


Not only did Holley send Little House Needlework's The Bookshelf and Morning Berries, but she also sent thread to encourage me to start The Bookshelf! I really don't need that kind of encouragement! I also got thread for the Just Nan freebie Royal Blossoms, which I have actually stitched recently (for the pinkeep exchange but I completely forgot to take a photo and my recipient hasn't posted one yet) but wanted to do again for myself. Thank you so much Holley!

In other stash news, our container arrives on Wednesday! Hooray! It's in the country early, it's been through customs, and it's ready for delivery. So next week my stash and I will be reunited!

I haven't been short of things to do though. Yesterday I worked on Blackstone Fantasy Garden with Carissa:


And during the week I worked on my Quaker Stocking:
