Stash Trip

This past weekend my hubby and I went on a mini vacation. There was a HAMfest in Laporte, IN and he always asks me to go along. Well just so happens House of Stitches is in the same town. So of course I was taken along against my will haha. This is just a wonderful store with wonderful ladies working there. Hubby enjoyed the Hamfest and found some things he wanted/needed. Then we headed to HOS so I could shop. I was giving some money at Christmas time to spend on my trip so I went wild haha. Here is what I got.

Handblessings Pattern "A little nut" -- thought this was of course too perfect for my son. I also bought fabric and the threads it called for.

Sweetheart Tree American Star biscornu -- my son just loves patriotic pieces so couldn't pass this up. It was a complete kit.

Sweetheart Tree Lavender Blossoms biscornu
-- I just love purple LOL. Complete kit again.

Sue Hillis Loves Me Loves Me Not -- This pattern is just too cute. I bought a very pretty spring fabric called Pink Dahlia.

Sue Hillis Great Kisser -- I'm going to change this one up a little and make it for my son. He just loves frogs. I bought a piece of Waterlily fabric to do this one on.

I can't find a picture but two zipper bags. I thought they were just too perfect to throw small WIPs in.

Then I got carried away with Mill Hill kits haha. I just love these.

School Days -- want to do this one for Jeremiah's school room.
Sail Away -- I have a larger kit to do for my mom. This will just go perfect with it.
Patchwork Stocking -- Thought this one was just cute.
Banana Split -- Bought several from this set...
Lemonade, Popcorn, and Root Beer Float.

I've finally reached the end of my list haha. It was a great time. Hubby and I met up with some friends for dinner and really just had a very nice time. Now I have too much to stitch on haha. Love it all.
