Fraktur WIP and Stash Enhancement!

This is Love Letter's Fraktur by Ink Circles! I fell in love with the colors on this one when I first saw it and knew I must start it asap. I am stitching it on 32 Creme Brulee by R and R fabric and using the recommended GAST. In my haste to stitch this one, I ended up buying two, so if anyone is interested in it I will give it away on Memorial Day. Just leave a comment on this post please. I am working on The Flock still, a little behind and hoping to get it caught up this weekend!

Edited to add: Tracy is the winner of the Fraktur Chart 

I am thrilled to be off for a long weekend. I have plans for me, Gibbs and my stitching at the current moment and just relaxing! I can't wait! Below is some of the stash that I have bought recently. I could't resist the stitcher's station from Liberty Hill, I love those handmade pieces. The rest is stash that I picked up from Shakespeare's Peddler!

Stitcher's Station by Liberty Hill

a great mesh project bag from Stitch a Gift with flip flops on it!

Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler along with threads and 32 count Navy Bean linen by Lakeside Linen

Jane Pattison 1806 Sampler with 32 count Navy Bean by Lakeside Linen

This last piece is Coffee Compendium by Tempting Tangles, I have long liked this pattern and then I saw it finished in one of my Facebook groups and I had to start it! So, this is going to be my Memorial weekend start. I am stitching it on 32 Country Mocha by Zweigert and substituting Carrie's Silk Threads for the DMC threads. I had to make a couple of guesses on the threads, so I will have to see how that works out. The pattern orginally calls for Belle Soie silks, but I was trying to be a little frugal (now don't be hysterically laughing there behind your computer's) Anyway, if you have hung out with me this long-thank you! I hope your Memorial Day weekend is a blessed one!
