Failure!


Ok, so you were all right & I admit I am a failure!
My NY resolution of "no new stash" for a year has gone out of the window and lasted a grand 23 days..
Please do not try this at home, it doesn't work :D

As you all guessed, I have been online shopping 
I totally gave in and bought some new chart and am now waiting impatiently for them to be despatched

Many thanks to Emma for kindly telling me about The Patchwork Rabbit!!
I also visited So Creastitch
These are pure Heaven!
I found so many pieces from foreign designers I could only dream about & admire on all your lovely blogs
Well, now I'll have mine...  What did I get???


La Maison Bleue from Tralala


A l'Ombre du Jasmin from Zaza Picque


Needlework Shop
Button, Button &
Vintage Christmas from Country Cottage Needlework




And Douceur de Vivre from Jardin Privé 


I am so happy!!
A bliss, this order has made my day
(After a bad early start due to the "Snow")

Happy Stitching!
Love, Mii x

  9. Great new purchases! And you lasted alot longer than I did with the "no new stash" resolution. I barely made it a week! Sometimes you just gotta do something nice for yourself:)

    1. Lol, I agree with you Nia... It was bound to fail! I gave it a go but kind of knew I wouldn't last long :D Can't wait to read your posts about Vintage Christmas. It is so sweet, I don't think I'll be waiting for December to start it :P

    1. Thank you Anne! I know these charts are real cutties, I just can't wait to start one... but which one??? :D

  21. Oh Mii, I wouldn't have been able to make that NYs resolution!!! There are soooo many charts and new ones everyday!!!! So don't consider it a fail - it's just impossible to be a stitcher and NOT buy charts you see and love!

    happy stitching ;)

    1. LOL!! Don't worry, I'm not upset with you at all, I'm more grateful because everywhere I looked for some of these designs I would have had to make a trip to the USA!!! Not that I mind, it's fantastic out there, wish I'd thought of that last time I went there :D I didn't spend to much, it is always like that with charts... the expensive bit is when you kit it up. Hope your order arrive soon. Just found out mine got despatched yesterday so fingers crossed, if postie decide to face the snow, I could have them this weekend...
