TUSAL & Stash enhancement

I was hoping to have a pic of a happy dance ready for you today, but it didn't happen.  Hubby came down with a brutal cold...so I don't know about your husband's...but when mine gets sick...he turns into a whiny sniveling baby, that is convinced that he's going to die any second.  ARGH!!  So between that and putting drops in Mom's eyes all weekend, it was GREAT!!!  but I did manage to get some stitching done, just not enough to finish.  I'm hoping though that this week should do it and I'll have my hummingbird finished.  Then I'm on to stitching Ornaments, my March reindeer still needs to be stitched and my LHN ornie for this month as well.

But in the meantime....I've put a few more threads into my TUSAL jar.  The only threads that were added to it were from my efforts on my hummingbird.

Then I did some shopppppinnnnnngggg!  I love it when the mail brings delightful things.  The Goode Huswife book has been one that I have been going back and forth on for a year now...and I finally couldn't stand it anymore and I had to get it.  There's still another book that I want to get of her's but I'll wait and see on that one.  Maybe another year of going back and forth.  LOL


Frederika & Frederick are ones that I have been coveting since they've been published as well, so I had to get those ones.   There are also a few other ones that I want to get by Carriage House. I need to get the 4 girls.  I never thought too much about them until just recently, when I saw them all done up and framed side by side, and fell in love.  Thank you very much enablers!  You know who you are!  LOL

I know about being sick... I've got it right now and just got back from the drs myself. She said that this brochial thing and strep are making the rounds right now, so watch out! Hope he feels better soon!

Lovely stash!!! I had to get that Goode Huswife book too and I already have all 4 girls... maybe instead of a LHN SAL sunday we should make it a Carriage House SAL instead this time round? What do you think?

Your TUSAL is coming along nicely as well... I still need to post mine, but I think I'll wait till tomorrow with it now...
Hugs

Wow, you got some great stash, Barbi. I have Frederik and Frederika, too, and would really love to start them this year. Can't wait to see what you start next :)

Great stash! I love those CHS charts... I've been trying to resist starting the Freds but might just cave in soon.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know what you mean about sick men.. pitiful!! My dh is the same way. Yet when we are sick (most times anyway) we have to continue doing laundry, taking care of kids, etc. Great stash!
