Gifts and Stash

When I saw Carol R.'s Quaker Sampler finished piece on her blog, I fell in love and left comment to its post. She gave me reply and she offered me its chart without any hesitation!
I was so surprised and of course I was so happy to heard of it!
Soon she has sent me a chart, she is so kind, isn't she?!
I really want to stitch this as it is so beautiful, but there are so many WIPs and projects which will be start soon with friends, I won't be able to start this soon... pity!
But one day I definitely stitch this beautifully like she has done!

Thank you so much for your kindness, Carol!

And here are the gifts from my Italian friend Chiara (she has no blog...), she is so kind and to talk (in e-mail, though!) with her is so much fun!
She is a very creative, she is a mosaicst and her spare time she is making beautiful items to sell.

These ceramic buttons and scissor fob are her works! They are so lovely!
And as I asked her to send me some Italian checked linen (I forgot the name "Gra... " something...), she sent me a lot!
Molto grazie amica mia, Chiara!

And here are my stash! :D
As I saw
Carol (just Carol)'s "The Busy Needle" which is a special edition by LHN, I fell in love and have ordered it, and also two more LHN kits + Pine Mountain's pillow kit!
They all are so lovely, I can't be patient to start them!
I should finish my projects first, I can't increase my WIPs more than now!

I also bought some items from eHandcrafts and from some other shops...
Oops, I don't want to see a next month's bill... :(

By the way, I'm still doing a "Give it a way" a chart "Sweet Little Berries" by Little House Needleworks, as I wrote in the last post. If you are interested in it and would like to have it, please just leave a comment (just a line is OK!) on the last post! I will draw lots and choose one person on 16th (Sunday) of March (Japanese time...).

Chiara's mother (I believe it must be the same Chiara) just started exchanging emails with me this week. What a lovely and talented family they are, with a touch of sweet shyness thrown in. :) Perhaps one day we will convince them to join us in the blogosphere.

Hello Chiara,

Thanks for visiting my blog. Don't know how to get in touch with you as I know you don't have a blog yet. Hope Yuko doesn't mind if I use her blog to get to you.

If you are interested with the borders on BC Snapper Series 2003 which your mom is currently stitching, please drop me a note.
