Feeding My Stash

I've been ordering some goodies! Oh, what fun!
This is what arrived last week:

beautiful hand-dyed thread perfect for tatting

I ordered this book from Georgia Seitz, and she very kindly included two thread samples!
Sorry for the glare.....it hides some of this gorgeous 3-d crocheted butterfly on the cover of Piecework. I wonder if this design could be tatted.
ribbons, and more ribbons, and vintage sequins
an assorted package of materials, ribbons, lace, thread, and trims all perfect for CQing!

And more lovely 'Wildfowers' thread
I'm building my stash for projects that are in the planning stage. 

I've been terribly naughty, and I ordered more wonderful items. I've been waiting for them to arrive, but it's taking soooo long.

Have you been building your stash, too?

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz


  1. Your goodies are making me tremble! How delightful for you!
    Fox : )

  2. I'm TREMBLING too Suz! Sigh..those ribbons..
    lovely materials are essential to work with.It adds to the pleasure for sure!

  3. I look forward to seeing what you do with all of these goodies. Have lots of fun!

  4. You have a wonderful stash of goodies cant wait to see how you use them.

  5. What fun! You now own my favorite tatting book!

  6. Wonderful lot of goodies. Please share pictures of what you make with them.

    I've been busy tatting to think of adding more stash... err... did that come out right? LOL.

  7. I've been spoiling myself, and it feels great! I'm waiting for my first order of Lizbeth thread to arrive with a tatting booklet. I'm running out of room!
    Hope you have a good weekend, Fox.

    Hi Judy,
    I've heard a lot about silk ribbons and thought I should try different ones and see what they're like.( I've only tried one once before) I figure, I don't buy shoes, or clothes other than essentials, so I deserve a little stash bonus, don't you think so?

    Eliz, and Shirley, I'll sure post pics of what I make....it may take a little time, though, but I'm having fun planning! Thanks for stopping by!

    Diane, now I know why everyone raves about Mary's patterns--they're fantastic! I've already had some fun testing a few. Have a good weekend.

    Hi Jon, and thanks so much for your nice comment on my blog. I'm having fun gathering a nice stash, so then I can spend lots of time being busy tatting, without fear of running out of thread. LOL I love your blog! Thanks for sharing your patterns with everyone, and for inspiring me to tat better (and more often!)
    Have a nice weekend. Hugs

  8. Today I received my first 'Blog Award' part of it involves passing it on, I always enjoy your Blog so you are one of my chosen few! Thank you for always being so generous with your time . Love Linda

  9. Ooh! That's all so exciting. Seeing it all there must be inspiring. (:

  10. Thank you so much, Linda, for thinking of me! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Thank you Anika. I love to look through my stash, play with it, sort it and imagine projects I could create with them.

  11. be as naughty as you like!!

  12. I love your new threads and other goodies. It's been a while since I added some to my stash. But I've got some lovely perle 5 from one of my friends, I used it for the cover of my Plos fabric book.

  13. Oh, I intend to, Karen! ;-)

    Aren't the perles nice to use, Annet? I have a few of the 12's I love.


  14. Oh my ,dear Suz- that looks just gorgeus, what fantastic colors, and the ribbons, and wildfowers thread, is sooo beautiful--don`t your fingers itch to get startet on all this lovelynes?
    xox,Dorthe (I have to comment as anonymous, because of the blogger problems )

  15. My fingers are twitching and itching, and I want to play with all the threads! And ribbon! And......well, have to finish what I've already started, first. Have a good weekend, Dorthe! Hugs

  16. Suz,
    Being naughty at times feels nice,isn't it? If we balance our expenses splurging on hobby is allowed :)

  17. You're right, Deepa! I'm thinking I should be naughty more often! But, I do budget, so I can splurge every now and then. Hope you've been 'naughty' too. Hugs

  18. Wow Suz! soooo deeelishussss - all those wonderful colours and textures. I'm sure you will be able to work out how to tat that beautiful butterfly too! A little of what you fancy does you good - even though it looks a bit more than a 'little'!!

  19. How right you are, Val! I plan to be good to myself a little more often. I've been looking at the butterfly, but I haven't tried tatting it yet. That could be interesting. Hugs

  20. I am hoping that as you haven't blogged a lot that you are beavering away with all these goodies!!??

  21. Hi Karen. Actually, we were busy with the choir concerts last weekend, and then had connection problems off and on due to storms and fallen trees. It's nice to have my comp back.
    I'm looking forward to playing with my goodies, soon! Hugs


I love to read your comments!
