Catching Up

I'm finally catching up MXI. I just finished parts 8 & 9, sans beads, and I hope to start 10 tomorrow. That is dependent upon work of course. Here is a close up of part 9. I really like the Jessica stitches. The funny thing is that out of all the regular cross stitch and specialty stitches, the thing I have trouble doing is the darn backstitching. I don't know why I have a hard time with it, but I do. Weird huh? Part 11 came out this weekend and I hope to start on it next week. I have the HAED SAL this coming weekend, so I won't be able to start it until after that.
I've been buy stash like crazy. Don't know when I'll get to stich any of it, but I can't help myself. I bought four more HAEDs during their sale:
Pyramid 2 by Marchetti
Manhattan Wonderland by Wooster Scott
Firefly by Ashwood
Celestial by SPM
Then I ordered Chatelaine's Oriental Harem Garden and Watergarden II - Autumn.
I also just got an order from ABC that has Mirabilia's Bluebeard's Princess and Vixen; also Catnip Kitty Fob by Sweetheart Tree.
The I took a jaunt to the LNS and picked up La-D-Da's Something Wicked, CCNs The Nutcracker, Peppermint Lane, and LHN's Hen Party. I had to get this because everytime I get together with my sisters my DH calls it a Hen Party! How appropriate is that?

MXI looks fantastic. Those colors are so pleasing!

I could buy stash till the cupboards overflow and still need more! Enjoy it!

Your stitching is looking great. Some of your new stash sounds great - look forward to seeing some of that!

That is looking really good.

Looks like you'll be set if and when all the needlework stores close. I think you have enough for 3 lifetimes of stitching there!
