Here I am again !!!

When I wrote my post yesterday, I knew I had forgotten something but I couldn't figure out what it was. Then Karen ( no blog) asked what will be my next project and I knew! I wanted to show you my latest stash yesterday. You may remember that I am in an unwanted, totally bad stash diet . That means I have to resist to the totally cute designs I see everywhere around me ( when I browse ONS) BUT one day, I was lost on Ebay ( no clue how I arrived there - my finger problably slipped or got out of control ) , I saw one of the kits I've ALWAYS loved . I'm sure you all have one or two kits that you say to yourself: one day, I'll get that one. Well, that day was finally here for me ( even though it was not the right moment - too close to Christmas to be reasonable ... ) The price was fine but I usually spend less on kits ( I like it around 10 whenever possible.) but like I said, I' ve always loved that design . And I brainstormed with myself: you should buy it. Nanh, you can wait. But it's too cute and I'VE ALWAYS LOVED IT !!!!!! But it's more than you want to spend for a kit . Okay, okay, get it ! Yes, I'm just a weak, weak , hopeless creature ... sigh ... I can't resist cuteness , I can't ... Here is my new love :

Friendship grows - Sunset

Oh I can hear you! You thought you just said in your head but it was as clear as if you were in the room with me! Yes, yes, you did say the 5 letter word: GREEN !!!!!! I know! I know! I saw it too but my brain only focus on the pink, the purple, the butterflies. See, it's not me, it's my brain that is on total denial ! And then, I did something that could have made me want to change my plans : I opened up the kit and took a look at the chart. It's a Sunset kit and that company belongs to ................... Dimensions and you know what it means : blended threads, half stitches ( for the artisitc effect ... ) . I should have run away far far away from the Dimensions country BUT ... I' ve always loved that design and you can't fight love!!! And love hurts sometimes so if I have to suffer to stitch it, I will !!! I'll try to be strong, I'll pretend to love green just for the love of this design! Yes, I do agree with you: I might be a little crazy but it's a nice and safe craziness that make me happy !

I also got one of the beautiful Christmas design by Dimensions ( yes, them again). You may remember that every year, I buy one of their gold Petite kit. This year, I bought Santa's feathered friends. ( you know I have a thing for Santa !!! ) Last year, I had stitched Snowman and reindeer. Have you noticed that the " crafted with pride in the USA" has disapeared for a made in China ? Sad isn't it?

Santa's feathered friend - Dimensions

I'm still enjoying stitching my Lilly: it's really relaxing to have only 3 or 4 colors to choose from. I feel I'm stitching much faster which is not a bad thing as you know what is waiting for me right after Lilly is finished !!!

Both of the dimensions kits are gorgeous. :-) I am stitching a dimension kit at the moment called 'achoo' and he has some blended thread in him too but he's looking so sweet and detailed because of it. :-) I've done a few dimensions kits so I know what you mean, but they are totally worth it in the end.

LOL! Chiloe, unless the colors on my screen are completely off, even the watering can is green! ROFLOL! Well, I completely understand as it is a beautiful design. Look forward to when you start it :)

LOL great post. I do so lovely both of your new kits. Look forward to seeing your progress on them. Lily is looking great.

Wonderful stash, especially Santa's Feathered Friend. Had been eyeing on this one since it came out. You should buy Santa's Nap too as that one will go along so nicely with this.

Loving the colours of Lilly with the fabric. They match really great together.

Love the 'Santa' .

What's the fabric that you're stitching 'Lilly' on? It looks like evening clouds.
Happy stitching to you.

Oh they are cute. I think it is okay for the finger to slip and make purchase occasionally... very occasionally :D

Nancy M said...

Yep sometimes you just gotta get the kit! LOL

Hi Chiloe. I'm fairly new to blogspot, and I was looking for stitchy blogs to follow. I found you through Nancy M, and thought I like your style, lol. The new stash you picked up is great. I love green, so that wouldn't be a problem for me. And Santa's kit is so cute. Grats on the acquisitions!! And I love the Lilly fabby too. It's lovely. Hope things are well with you!
