MORE STASH TO SELL!!! Updated with NEW items!

Hello dearest stitchers!

I have updated the stash for sale.  There is still a lot left - so treat yourself to a little Christmas cheer and buy yourself a present - you deserve it!!!

I had planned to put a lot of my stash up on eBay - but you guys have been so awesome that I have not needed the "Bay of Evil"!  YAY!  

So, I dug a little deeper and found some more stuff that I would like to sell.  Now do not worry, I am keeping a few things - I am not getting out of stitching - but I am trying to be realistic with my time.  At this point in my life I am limited in what I can stitch - so instead of all these beauties sitting on the shelf collecting dust I have decided to sell them so they can find new, loving homes!

All items are from a smoke-free home but I do have cats.  The items have been kept clean and away from the pets as much as possible.  Just wanted to be honest and upfront for those that have allergies. All items are new and unused (unless otherwise specified.)

IMPORTANT INFO:
Email me if you wish to purchase (valiehokie@gmail.com).  First come, first served.   I take PayPal and will calculate true (and least expensive) shipping based on what you purchased.  Books are sold in sets unless otherwise specified. 



Sampler Kits



The Rebecah French Sampler - 1802
The Essamplaire Complete Class Kit - Click HERE for more information
I started this sampler - she is a dream to stitch!  These pictures were taken today - the linen is still in the scroll rods.  I am very careful when using thread, so there should be plenty to finish her.  I am also pretty neat with my stitching and I included a picture of the back in case you wanted to see.
Retail $195  Asking $125 (reduced)
