Good Intentions, a Finish and De-Stashing

Well the title says it all, good intentions. Which is what I thought I had to come and make a  new blog post. Somehow, I never got here. But finally, here I be with a small finish called Harvest Moon by Island Cottage Needlearts. I started it ages ago and finally picked it up and completed it. Stitch count is 77 x 56.  It's stitched on 30 count Celadon with Gentle Art Threads. Finishing plans are for framing.

  I also have made some progress on my ES Spot Motif Sampler. I have been enjoying all the bright colors in this one and I managed to get the border to meet after only three tries-LOL  Whew!  I currently am impatiently  waiting on some stash in the mail. Stacy Nash's Summer at Hollyberry Farm, and Promised Lamb by Plum Street Samplers. I have been itching to start these, especially the Stacy Nash piece.

Now in regards to the de-stashing part, I have been slowly getting rid of things that I knew I wasn't going to stitch over the last few months. My focus has primarily gone to samplers.  Theresa at Shakespeare's Peddler had a recommendation on her Facebook page about a lovely lady named Kathy who does EBay consignment. I contacted her and the rest as they say is history. I have sold stuff through her three times. She has been extremely reliable, with great communication and I haven't had not one issue. So, if you are interested in trying to pare down some of your things then please contact Kathy. She is always on the look out for more things to sell. You can contact her at and she will be glad to explain how it works.  Tell her I sent you!

Thanks for all your lovely comments in regards to my Sarah's House finish. I appreciate it very much. I am off to stitch. Be blessed friends!
