Halloween Stitching Day 15 - More new stash!!!

I love sleeping in on Saturdays!!!   I have trained my dogs to not wake me up only my husband when they want to be fed in the mornings.  So DH is out of town, my boys let me sleep in until 8 am!!!  I was so proud of them!!!!  Their usual feeding time is 6 am.    I went to lunch with my family today at one of the local Mexican restaurants, chips and cheese dip make everything great!!!   After that, I went to Joanns to use my 60% off coupon for cozy flannel for inside fabric of my sisters skull rag quilt..found the cutest cross stitch chart for $10 and I had a there you go.  

This weekend is the annual craft fair weekend, that I avoid at all costs!!!   There were thousands and I mean thousands of extra people in town for the craft fairs - there are about six different craft fairs going on in about a 30 mile vicinity for one weekend in October and then again in May.  I stopped by one of the small ones because my friend Amber had a booth and she needed a sonic drink - so I made a Sonic run for her..

Since hubby is out of town, I took a long nap on the couch while watching the Murder She Wrote marathon on the Hallmark Channel.  I didn't mean to fall asleep, but it seems to happen a lot lately.  Spent the evening watching flosstube and stitching!   Ordered a pizza for dinner and I was set!

Day 15 Stitching:   Disney Catalog Halloween - 28 count opalescent - That is all I got.  My friend Becki went to Cecilia Samplers in Branson and picked it out for me ......

Pumpkin without backstitching...He has funky hair!!!! LOL 

It is amazing how much stitching you can get done when you are by yourself!!!  

New Stash - In September, I was playing on Brookes Books Etsy store and she had a sale for overstocked charts.  It was $25 for 10 charts worth $72.  I already own the first little girl but I didn't have the others, so I just said why not!!!  

First set of Overstocked charts: linked to the overstock sale
1) Emma Rose ( I own already)
2) Snow Queens Tiara - LOVE!!!!
3) Owl Dad
4) Dad's Good advice

These two have been on my list!!!
5) Alice All dressed up
6) The Darcys

7) Amy March - Little Women
8) Beth March- Little Women
9) Jo March - Little Women
10) - Meg March - Little women

The as I got to looking at the other sales she had, I almost peed my pants!!!!  I squealed really loud and my husband thought I was crazy.  I have been eyeing this series for a long time but I just didn't have $72 for 12 charts...I couldn't justify that!!!!  But...she had as whole set on sale for $20!!!   I jumped on it!!!

It is her Brides Tree Ornament Collection!!!!!!!   - Linked to the overstock sale.   Aren't they so pretty???????  

Here is my Joann's kit find...It is a design works Tea Time Sampler. 

Final item  - Stash Unload find for $3.00!!!!!!     Just love it!!!!  Looked at the thread chart and It is a nightmare!!  Blended threads for as far as the eyes can see....This might be one I just pull out and look at!!! LOL!!!!!

I have ordered a few more things but I am going to have to put myself on a stash diet for the rest of the year because Christmas is coming up!!!!  Time to buy gifts!!!!

What a great stash haul! I am eyeing up the Bride's Tree ornaments. I've been admiring them on Crafty Rahenna's blog but truthfully im not sure what I would do with them when finished.
You MUST stitch the Castle Sampler! I stitched this one way back in the 1990s. I think it was the 3rd piece I ever stitched. I didn't know it was supposed to be difficult so I just stitched it! My parents have it and I still love it to this day.

Cute start Vickie. I love the Mickey Mouse chart/kit. Do you know where I could buy one? I also love your Tea Time Sampler. My Joann's is a small one and doesn't carry kits. I have looked everywhere for it. Love all of your other stash too.
