I have LOTS of haul including a giveaway I won. I also purchased two lots from Stash groups on FB, but don't have photos those. One lot was 10 Mill Hill kits and all but about 4 were brand new for ..... $20! The other was a chart of Teresa Wentzler Carousel *squee. I'm going to start that one in 2017!

|An IG giveaway I won @ the top and Minders I purchased all arrived the same day!|
|Why yes, that's more minders I purchased!|
Had a really exciting phone call from my neighbor in early July. She was cleaning out a house & came across a bunch of cross stitch items. She thought I might want it and called me to come over. I went to her house and came home with a ton of new stash!
Last but not least *insert drumroll* New Starts : o. I participated in a challenge to start 5 new things last weekend and then work on them for 2 weeks. Four of them were from my haul above. Here's a pick of them before I started.
|Smores by Mill Hill|
|Sophia by Summer House I didn't like my original fabric choice|
|Sea Turtle by Mill Hill|
|Love Quilts Special Project Square|
|O Holy Night --Yall its 18ct Black AIDA!!|
This final start was actually started around July 23. A dear friend of mine passed away in April. I was reminded of this chart recently when speaking with her daughter. I'm stitching this for her daughter and she will attach precious buttons and finish it to keep. I don't really have a time rush on this, but I want to finish ASAP, so am trying to stitch on this one at least once a week.
Congratulation if you made it to the end. I'll try to be back soon with more progress. Until next time. Happy Stitching =) Pam
