Stash Heaven!!!!

I got this in the mail Friday from Traditional Stitches. It is the linen and GAST threads for the Sharon Cohen sampler, plus 2 spools of linen thread and some lovely scented lavender bees wax (it looks like it somehow got melted a bit, but no matter...it will soon have thread marks in it anyway) The parcels sat in the car all day Friday while I was at work...whenever I had a minute to draw breath, I thought about my stash and the coming weekend. I am almost finished with a small sampler and may have a pic to share tomorrow. Keep stitching ladies!

Wow, beautiful stash! Those thread colors are so pretty! Enjoy! :)

I'm so glad you posted a pic of your new project. I've been trying to decide if I want to do this one and I think this has sold me on it. Bought the magazine, now just have to get the rest. I love Sharon Cohen's stuff but have never done any of her pieces. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!

I just ordered the thread to start that sampler and love the colors. I have only stitched two small designs of hers in the past but there are several I would love to do. Where did you find the lavender scented bees wax if I may ask? I love having little bees wax in my stitching bags and I am working on a new project with linen thread and would love to have some new for that bag.

What delicious looking threads! I have almost all the GAST range - just missing any limited editions and new shades from the last year or 2. Actually, I have more thread than I can imagine ever using, but I can still drool over someone else's floss toss. LOL!
