Didn’t catch the misprint on Cindy’s Merry Otter pattern so bought the wrong Mill Hill Beads – 42042 (2) first than got the correct ones later.
That is my complete stash list from Market, just because, Savannah and then kitting everything up.

WOW! That’s a lot of stuff! I wish I could go on a stash haul like that!

You’re my hero for today – that’s a wonderful stash haul! Enjoy it all and share pics with us!
clearstar wrote on Mar 26, ’07
It’s a stunning haul LOL and Chele, you bought two of mine!!! Cool…I so want to see one of mine stitched!
My DH knows I go on a rampage right around market! This year, I decided I would also kit up the things I bought rather than just getting the patterns. Hence, the HUGE list!! It is a also a combination birthday (18th) and anniversary (27th) present thing!
He just bought himself a new laptop yesterday so I think we are pretty close in spending moola this month!! VBG!
Pictures hey, well that would mean I am actually starting something besides Baltazar anytime soon!! But yes, when I do start any of them, I will post! Now that I have Weds. off I am hoping for more stitching time!
I will have to see what I have in my stash for fabric! I bet I have something that will work perfect! Want to make some more progress on Baltazar since I haven’t stitched on it in almost 4 weeks! I have always loved those two designs and was glad I got them!!!
Thanks Mel! I was quite happy for the last 2 weeks shopping away to my hearts content! I also now how to get to this AWESOME shop in Crstral Lake, IL so I can go get cool stash, silks, fabric and any patterns I want!!! I might not even need the internet very often with this shop!! Gotta love GPS units!!!
Thanks Paula! Got home after a long 2 hour drive! Think maybe a nap is in order while I wait for Scott to get home! Rats he just pulled up in the pizza truck! Driving 4 hours in one day to work only 4 hours is too hard on the eyes! LOL!
Luv and Hugs,
It is 57 miles away one way. Drive time is 1 hour and 16 minutes. But on Wednesday, they open at 9:30 a.m. so if I leave at 8:30 a.m., I will have tons of time to look around and get home before Scott does!!! It is the one upside to all this blinking driving I am doing. I am not afraid to go that far by myself now. I also have another great shop that is even closer. It is only 34 miles away and 37 minutes drive time. But it is in like downtown Milwaukee, which to me is harder to go to than going longer.

Wow, two shops like that in close reach….you US gals are so lucky. My closest really good shop [Jayne’s Attic] is at least a SIX hour drive…..If I’m lucky, I might get to go there once every couple of years……
The next closest is much closer but they don’t carry pretty flosses like Jayne’s, they just do the regular stuff but nothing “modern”.

I actually have 2 shops that are within 5 minutes and 15 minutes. The first one is more quilting, knitting, and bear making. They have almost totally phased out cross stitching. The other shop doesn’t get anything new in anymore but she will order anything you want from her distributors when you ask for it. I would rather ‘see’ the new stuff rather than order it sight unseen. I think she will be closing down in the next few years as her husband is nearing retirement age. So it is driving, I must do to see the fabrics etc. Not to bad though in the long run. Like you said, I am very lucky to have that many shops that close!!!
