Birthday Stash from Family!!

I know I'm a very fortunate lady. My dear children and hubby are so kind to me. And, all I every really want these days is STASH...so I'm easy to buy for. What could be a better match made in heaven!??? LOL
You probably recognize most of these as they are just being displayed here for your fun...but if you have any questions, just ask me in the comments. The only thing that's really unusual for me to buy is the "Wildflowers." I've never been much on this type of thing, but something about this one called out to me. I liked the whimsical placement and the berries and the soft colors, I guess. I'm looking forward to stitching it.
Here also is proof that I went on a Blackbird Designs jag. I really love them. So many of you already have them, but I didn't...I love the big book!


Oh, and the fabric they're sitting on is one that my daughter, Jessica, insisted we buy so I could stitch more Mirabilia mermaids for her on it! It's really beautiful...costs a fortune (we had to split it!) hand-dyed on opalescent...doesn't show well here... It is "Crystal Lagoon" 28 ct. Cashel by www.picturethisplus.com a sweet 36 x 52 piece!
Then, here is an embarrassing stack of riches in another group of charts that's an overlap from Mother's Day because Elegant Stitch was a little late in getting my order to me. But it came in time for my birthday! Yesss!
All in all...I lucked out, as they say! I'm such a happy 57ish stitching bum!! :))
I wish you all could come over and we could look at everything together and laugh and have a cup of tea or coffee and eat hot sour cream with nuts coffee cake...and stitch and see what we're working on....
Love and hugs,
Deb
