A new start, and craving stash!

Last night for whatever reason, I sat and drooled over tons of neat things on 1-2-3stitch, and Stitching Bits and Bobs. I have had this "I want to buy stash" longing! I don't know why that is, but there yah go. I am trying to be patient and wait until I get my bonus check in March (it's SO close!) But I got paid last night, and I so just want to hop on over and order something! Anything!

We shall see if I can hold off.

Well, the other day I decided that I wanted to work on something small for Easter, so I started a bell pull, with the words Happy Easter on it and the Easter Bunny at the bottom. It is really cute. I am finished with the "T" completely and part of the flowers around it, and have about three stitches in of the "S" I think it will be a quick stitch. this was int he March 2005 issue of the Cross stitcher.

I am trying to figure out a small something that I could do for St. Patricks day. I am still looking. I have half a mind to order some Lizzie*Kate flip it blocks. I think they are so cute! And maybe I could do that for St. Patty's day.

Well,this is a short post, as I have to work the dreaded 10-6 today. last night I had a hard time going to sleep, however I feel pretty good, not tired at all, really. So, I hope it last through the day at work. I am so excited! This will be my last 10-6 shift for a while, as I am going to 4-9 pm starting next week! Can you say "Extra stitching time"? =) I will post a progress picture of my Easter bellpull on here tomorrow, as I will have more time.

Happy Stitching!

Lana, that Easter design is sure a cute one! Looks really fun to stitch. :D
Be strong! You can wait just a little longer for more stash and then you'll be soooo proud of yourself, lol!
