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!

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!
