Uh...oh...

I was bad. I was very bad. But I did have Troy's consent, so that's okay - right? *looks around worriedly*

I just bought a chatelaine. Actually, two.
...and the kits.

Japanese Octagon Box has been screaming at me for months seeing other's WIPs and so finally I caved. Paypal is being retarded, so I'll pay properly tomorrow for it all, but it's as good as done.

I've also always loved Convents Herbal Garden, so I got it as well. Neither of these are going into my rotation anytime soon, much as I'd love to, unless...anyway I'll get to that later. I just want to stash them, they're so beautiful.

I'm getting the cream fabric for the box, and thinking maybe antique white for the garden. Not completely sold on that one yet. I'm stashing lots, and I think maybe it's partly a stress thing and partly a wanting to buy things now so I have pretties to work on when we can't afford them later - stitch from my stash. Especially the silk-involving things. DMC I could probably justify and afford - not silks. So, yeah.

I am going to seriously need to organise my room so I can find a place for all of this now....

Ooooh!!! Stash!! I did the same thing last week. I bought Medieval Sampler, Misty Morning Vineyard, and Taj Mahal Garden and I'm DYING to buy all the kits. I must keep reminding myself of my mortgage...
CHG is on my wishlist and I have Japanese Octagon Box... I've done a little bit of it, but I've lost momentum. The borders are so repetitive! Maybe we should do a SAL when you're ready to start?

I have some Chantelaine stashed and I completely understand about having to buy stash when you are stressed and in the need to buy as that is what I have done in the past and really can't afford to now. I have Taj kitted and a few of her charts I am waiting for the one with the log cabin in the middle, Alpine Gardens i think.
