The Opposite of De-stashing

Yep, I bought more than I stitched this week. HOWEVER, all these have been on my "to purchase" list for a looooong time! And can I just say that I adore Ebay?? I mean, c'mon! I always look for good deals on there and here are a few I'd like to share from this past week.

There's "Love Letter" from Full Circle Designs. It came with beads the the little love letter button. I snagged it for $5. I got (yes)another sheep design from Sisters and Best Friends, "Cold Toes, Warm Heart". This is another one I had previously sold while destashing and missed terribly. I'll stitch them this year. Then there's my favorite Stacy Nash Primitives Design, "Hallow's Eve Sampler Pillow", which I will not be making into a pillow! I got this for an incredible $2. Don't ask me how. I just bid and left it and won. Yaayyy me!

Here's a detail of the little letter button.

Now, there are times I lust and yearn for certain designs and a couple BlackBird Designs Loose Feathers fit that bill. Remember how you had to sign up for these babies? Well, I never did and will suffer eternally for it. BUT, I did snag one of my two favorite ones, "With My Needle", for under $6. I've seen them go for ridiculous prices on Ebay, but this time I happened to luck out.

If anyone out there would be willing to part with "Moon Garden", please let me know!

Now, I have to catch up on all your lovely blogs, becuase I know one thing---you ALL have been stitching, and posting, more than me this week, lol!

Dee said...

Good scores.

If you let me know what's on your wish list I'll take a look through my stash and see if I have any of them.

Great bargains you snagged there, Tammy. They all look like lovely patterns. My Mum's done Love Letter and it's gorgeous! I want to stitch this too one day. :)

I won't part with any of my stash just now, for one of the reasons like you've found, I may regret parting with it in the future. The thought of getting rid of anything brings me to tears. I admit, I'm just a stash horder.

Ebay will get you every time, but you can't beat the price! I have stash envy and am off to get some goodies for myself.

Ginnie said...

Great new stash..... there should be a warning on Ebay..."beware you will spend money!!"

Wendy said...

Wow, you bought some nice new stash! I also have so many things that I won't be able to finish anymore, but I love to buy them and collect them!

Tammy said...

Wonderful stash!! Congrats on your awesome findings!

Cindy said...

Great E-bay bargains! I'm afraid I'm in the same boat as you this week - I definitely bought more than I stitched. I actually think that I made negative stitching progress, due to a major frog fest on Monday!

Cathie said...

Sharon said...

Ohhh, there has bound to be HELP for us somewhere out there! LOL But, the big question is...do we really want it???? Nope, not at all~not when it comes to adding more stash!!! I always have said that if I could stitch just half as fast as I can buy, I'd be in great shape. LOL Woohoo to you on your newest wins/goodies!!! Go Tammy, Go!!! Enjoy your new stash. Now, go and STITCH!

Tracy said...

You'll start these after you finish "Gathering Eggs", right?! haha! Nice stash, Tam...

Nice stash, it's always fun to get ones you've been looking for, and to get a great deal on them too is a real bonus.
