Almost no stitching... but definitely stashing :D

Hi everyone,

I haven't been stitching much (I think I haven't stitched at all actually) since my last post... really tons and tons of stuff to do at work, so literally no time for stitching, but as my title says, I've been making up for it by stashing eheheh...This means that this post will be dedicated to my most recent aquisitions:
Eu não tenho bordado muito (aliás acho que não bordei nada) desde o meu último post... tenho tido carradas e carradas de coisas para fazer no trabalho e então não há tempo nenhum para bordar, mas como o título diz eu tenho andando a compensar e a comprar mais material... isto significa que este post vai ser dedicado às minahs aquisições mais reccentes:

Starting by the charts... I did buy an extra chart on HAED during the HAED appreciation week... I couldn't leave the bird and the fairy I bought before alone so I bought the pair.
A começar pelos gráficos... eu comprei mais um da HAED durante a Semana de Apreciação da HAED... eu não podia deixar o passarinho e a fadinha do último gráfico que comprei sozinhos e por isso comprei o par.

And at the beginning of last week I've order some more stash from 123stitch and some fabric from K@tZ Xstitch... and they both arrived today... two fat quarter pieces of white fabric, one evenweave 28ct for my next start.. and one 18ct aida for some Christmas ornies..., almost 70 new threads now I have all the colours required to start 3 more HAED eheheh (I'll show which ones a bit further down) bobbins for the threads and a new box... and a split rail Scroll frame... to see if it keeps the tension in the center...( I've already tried and I love it... but only time will tell if it actually works)
No inicio da semana passada eu fiz uma encomenda na 123stitch e mandei vir tecido da K@tZ Xstitch e ambas chegaram hoje... dois pedaços de tecido branco, um de trama 28ct evenweave, para o meu próximo projecto, e outro de aida 18ct para alguns enfeites de Natal..., chegaram cerca de 70 novas linhas, o que significa que agpra tenho as cores necessáras para começar mais 3 HAED eheheh (eu mostro-vos quais são mais abaixo), bobines para as linhas e uma caixa nova para as guardar... mandei vir também, um novo bastidor com uma ranhura... para ver se consigo manter a tensão do pano no centro.. (já experimentei e adorei... mas só o tempo é que vais mostrar se realmente funciona)...

And this is my new stash:
E estas são as minha compras:

And to prove that I did a bit of stitching... here is a pic of my tiny progress on QS Believe... I haven't stitched on this one for ages... and haven't stitched that much either
E para provar que bordei um pouquinho, aqui está uma foto do meu progresso, minimo em QS Believe... já não pegava neste projecto há séculos... e não bordei quase nada...

Before/ Antes
After / Depois
Can you see my tiny progress?
Conseguem ver algum progresso?

Now I bet you're still curious about the new 3 projects I plan to start right (and I did promise to share them with you) so these 3 are now kitted (I have 1 thread for each of the required colours)
Aposto que ainda estão curiosos acerca dos 3 novos projectos que eu pretendo começar (e eu prometi mostrar-vos) então estes são os 3 que estão prontos a começar (já tenho uma linha para cada cor necessária)

(This one I'll start on the 11th of October and plan to have it finished by the 11th of October of next year as it will be the 10th Anniversary of me being with my partner.)
(Este eu vou começar a 11 de Outubro e pretendo té-lo completo até 11 de Outubro de próximo ano, para marcar os 10 anos de namoro.)

This one I'll start the moment I finish one of my current projects.
Este vou começar assim que acabar algum dos projetos atuais

And this one I'll start the moment I finish a second one of my current projects. (this is to see if I actually finish any... instead of just starting them xD)
E este vai ser para quando acabar um segundo projecto (isto é para ver se eu realmente acabo algum bordado... em vez de só os começar xD)

I also have one of my all time favourites nearly kitted... but since this one is a TBAP (truly Big A** Project) I will only start it when I finish Touch of Spring...
Eu também tenho um dos meus favoritos já quase com todas as linhas prontas para começar... mas como este é um TBAP (um projecto enorme) só o vou começar quando acabar o Touch of Spring.

Thanks for visiting me and Happy Stitches :)
Obrigada por me terem visitado e Bons Bordados :)

I love all your new stash! I recently purchased Woodland Guardian and am also making myself wait to start until some other big projects are done. Why do we torture ourselves like this?!

oooh I love the charts you're planning to stitch. Especially the black & white HAED design with the elf couple.
Think I might pop over to 123stitch and have a closer look

Anonymous said...

me gain - I have just been on HAED website looking for the black & white chart of the elf couple but can't find it. Can you please tell me the name of the chart.

Wendy said...

I will stalk your new starts.

Meari said...

You certainly have been stashing! Nice stash, too. Some progress is better than none. :)

CathE said...

Lovely choice of charts. I would be so tempted to start them, that's why I've had to stop buying them, I would just end up with too many on the go.

Shari said...

wow, you do like the BIG projects don't you??? But hey, they all get done the same way....one XXXX at a time.....congrats on the new stash!

Rita said...
