Sorry about the crappy photos, it's hard to get good help these days. The light is bad and DH used the cheap camera.

Here is a picture of all the lovely goodies she sent as well.
After all the exchanges and stitching for everyone else, I decided that I needed to stitch something for myself. Here is my new start, it's Flax Fields by Carriage House Samplings. I am stitching it using the recommended NPS and Gloriana silks.
My sale of household items on eBay was a massive success and I have already spent a good portion of the money. I purchased a whole lot of beautiful R & R Reproductions linens from Home Sweet Home Needlecrafts. I really recommend Janet and her store, she has such an extensive inventory of fabric and she has been very helpful. Sorry, no photo to show as I forgot to take a photo before I packed them all away. I also purchased a whole lot of threads from another ONS. I have updated my sidebar of my blog and have listed all my kitted up charts. I figured that if I purchased all the fabric and thread to get all these charts done at some time or other, I could keep my stash buying under control (I'm sure it won't happen!).
