Stash Enhancement & New Finish!

I have had a bit of a splurge lately on new stash (I still have another delivery on its way) so I thought I would show you what I have added to my stash this time.
I was visiting one of the ladies who entered my RAK giveaway and on her blog she had some items listed that she wanted to swap, on her wishlist were canvas tote bags that she really wanted, well I had some sitting around not being used so we did a swap, so in the picture below I received from her:
Lizzie Kate - Believe/Care flip its with charms
Glory Bee - In the Meadow
LHN - Patience
LHN - Gentleness
The others came from an order I placed at Stitching Bits & Bobs and they are:
Lizzie Kate - Welcome All Seasons
LHN - He's A Flake
Lizzie Kate's new flip it series - Green (Be Kind to Animals, Ride A Bike & Plant a Tree) I also received the border pattern and all the extra buttons aswell.

I also managed to finish up this lovely design over the weekend.  I had a cut out block for a cube style finish that was the perfect size, so this is how it ended up. 

Bloom by Midsummer Night Designs.
Stitched on 30ct pearl grey linen using DMC conversions (thanks Becky!)
I loved the end product soo much that I have decided to keep it for myself.

Thank you for visiting dear friends.  Until next time, happy stitching
