My wip of AWFAA and some goodies I got.

This is my latest wip photo of All Was for An Appil from the Scarlet Letter.
I am so happy to have finished stitching those trees :) which by the way I
change the color to an overdyed since I wanted the tree to have more color.

I still have to outline the parrot by Adam's side and the right clouds. I am
really enjoying myself in having time to stitch on my wips. I also change the
color on the snake, I went with a darker shade of grey blue.

Now I would like to share with you some of my new stash I just received from Kathy at  I am so excited with everything.  I got seven new pairs of scissors--four of them are the antique reproduction style and I just love them.  The other three pairs were the new Kelmscott Little Gems in primitive black, the Steweb scissors and the Elizabeth I scissors.  I also got some new Mother of Pearl Thread Winders and Thread Drops and the lovely new Hearts Afire Needleminder.  Also, Kathy  just introduced me to these  wonderful Thread Savers from Rosewood Manor.  They are made of wood and are very very smooth and they will not snag our wonderful silk fibers. I have simply fallen in love with them!

I also got The Village Square Sampler from Samplers Remembered, two new charts from The Marking Sampler and five new charts from Threads Through Time!  I feel like a child on Christmas morning!  I cannot wait to begin winding my silks and stitching one of my new charts.

I would also like to tell you that The MadStitcher now has a message board on her website and I would love to see you all over there so we can talk and share. You have to register to avoid spammers but it is easy to do. Hope to see you all there.

Wow, you're making wonderful progress on AAWFAA. I started that piece, and then lost my floss bag and haven't started back up on it yet! Yours is an inspiration for me to start on it again. And wonderful stash - love the A&E's I see there!!
