I think it might have been on a bit of a grand tour as it has Chinese writing and stamps on it but not to worry it's here now. YAY!
Thanks Tiff xx


Oh wow. I'm amazed it managed to arrive at all! That's a big sigh of relief.

Here is my lovely and oh so useful gift from Nerdy Stitches.

Image

Thank you so much Nerdy Stitches aka Meredith it is just what I need for next year's bout of coaster stitching which I am planning on doing. Brilliant thinking too to have it sent direct from 123stitch as it has only just got here in time to open it.

It is going to be great to have it on hand. The threads too are always useful as I am always needing supplies of white thread and never more so with the Christmas stocking kit of a Snowman I have ordered. I don't like Dimensions white or black threads and always replace them.

Thank you oh so much Meredith - Merry Stashmas to you

To everyone else, I am sure the next hours are going to fly by for you and I am looking forward in anticipation to see what everyone else gets.

Glad you could open your gift (being 15 hours ahead of the US East Coast) but the photo didn't come through. At least not that I could see it.

There you are Carole, this old computer was doing it own thing and posted my reply before I had transferred the image but it is there now and hopefully it is for you too.
Ummmmm are you staying up until 1 minute past midnight to open your package? Just wondering :lol:

Lovely fabric and never enough white floss. Can't wait to see the coasters you are making. And yes Sally, since I am almost always still up at midnight, I just might have to open my package then!

Nice Stashmas gift, Sally. That white has become my go-to white, and the linen is so pretty! Now here's hoping I can stay awake until after midnight so I can open my Stashmas gift - and put an end to its constant taunting!

I didn't wait up until midnight, I'm afraid, but I did have a go at my parcel over breakfast!

Thank you Midge for two perfectly scrumptious hand-dyed silk twists, and a lovely hand-stitched needlebook and card. Did you know the needlebook is stitched in my favourite Anchor colour? And it goes well with the two silks as well - I'm feeling very colour-coordinated :-)

Here are the silks with the needlebook's outside:

And the inside (it is so neatly finished!), with the card:

And a close-up of the silk colours:

Thoughtful Stashmas gift, Sally! :snowman: And what gorgeous silks, needle book and card, Mabel. Those really are your colours. :)

I have opened mine from Inkysloth, and it contains marvels! Not only a set of four variegated threads and a very lovely dragonfly design to stitch, but bits that feed into other artistic pathways. Square sheets of felt -- very useful! A set of (I think) roundhand nibs (and reservoirs) for an dip pen plus a gorgeous Zebra G! And then... gold leaf and copper leaf plus the proper sizing for calligraphy... This is an amazing and thoughtful Stashmas gift! Oh, and in my excitement I almost forgot the ammonite pin (which I'm wearing at the moment)! Pic to follow (My camera has given up on networking, so must wait for Mr S to come back from work.)

Thank you Thank you!

Some fabulous Stashmas parcels being opened by the sounds of it. Love those colours on the silks Mabel and what a great little needlework book, just right for travelling with I am sure plus a beautifully stitched card.
Serinde looking forward to seeing your new stash too, sounds awesome.

we are all spoilt by our giftees aren't we. I, of course want to abandon my motif stitching and go dosome coasters but I must be good and finish what I started. Besides Mabel's SAL is due to appear anytime too. :D

Thank you Serinde so much for the Dairy Milk..been so long since I've tasted it Directly from the UK.. The American version is nothing like this.. I am enjoying it right now...i absolutely love the dragon needle minder and fobs and the flosses. The card and ornament were cute and so were the snowman coasters.

I feel asleep was early last night cause I was emotionally strung out..but this was a wonderful surprise to wake up too thank you!!!

:whoop: :whoop: I received the most beautiful set of hand made huggies from istitchwithlove; a lovely and so Christmasy (is that Stashmasly?) biscornu and card, variegated pearl threads and a Lizzie Kate snippet.

Image

Miss Laverne investigated and approved! And thinks the biscornu is for her.

Here's a close up of the biscornu and the card.

I usually post thumbnails, but I didn't want anyone to miss seeing the detail of these beautiful gifts.
Thank you so much Miranda. They are especially appreciated :wub: because of the work you put into them.

I'm so glad you liked the chart. You said silhouettes and gold needles in your wish list. Didn't know you were desperate, but glad that they have relieved some of the desperation. I've never used gold needles so I'm curious to know how they are. I think I go through too many to use them a lot. And thank you for running Stashmas with me again! This was made so easy this year by all the awesome participants. Hope we will get many more next year. HAPPY STASHMAS

Glad you like everything -- and now you can see why the package had to be kept away from a radiator! :lol: Fizzbw (Niki) is responsible for the needleminder and scissors keep. Yes, we conspired... :idea: And the card and coasters all support good UK causes.
