The Village has arrived!

It came yesterday, but I caught a stomach bug (thanks kids) and stayed in bed pretty much all day. I didn't even open the box until late last night.

I also got a few more things...

And from Stitcher's Closet I received my "A New Beginning" chart and threads. I have two pieces of fabric in my stash that I'm trying to decide from...

Fabric and Threads with A New Beginning pattern. 32 ct. R&R Lt. Cappuccino linen with threads and pattern.
32 ct. R&R Oatmeal or 32 ct. R&R Lt. Cappuccino?

Well, that's all for the stash for now... like I said before - I think I'm set for a pretty long time! :)

I've definitely been in the nesting mood today. I got out all the new onesies, t-shirts, blankets and sheets and put them in the wash. I then got out all the pacifiers, bottles, etc. and got them all sterlized. I still need to get some diapers and a few more things from Target, so I'm making a list. I'm definitely ready to see his little face! Only 18 more days until my due date. Can't wait! :)


  1. Congrats on all the lovely stash. Looks like tons of wonderful stitching lies ahead:)

  2. Yay!!! So excited for you... all that stash looks fabulous. Now THAT is what I call a great mail day. :) Enjoy it!

  3. Wow! So glad that VoHRH finally arrived for you...the other stash looks fantastic as well!


  4. Wonderful stash! :) I like the Oatmeal for A New Beginning...

  5. Great mail day!! I cant wait to get my BD Secret Garden.
    Happy Stitching!

  6. Wonderful stash Nicole! You finally got the Village - lucky you!

    I like Oatmeal for A New Beginning too...

  7. WOW What a great mail day. I like the darker fabric for A New Beginning.

    Hope you're feeling better today.

  8. Nic, I need to have your mailbox! LOL Wonderful stash! I had that same bug last Saturday, it took me all day to get over it too.

  9. I am so impressed! I bought VOHRH back when it first came out, and my LNS owner is a great friend and RAD'd me with the 40 ct Sand Dune (amazing, I know - she is awesome!!).... but I fear I would have to mortgage my house to buy all the NPI's for it.... so will go with the VC conversion, since I am using that for HOHRH now anyhow... best, I think, if they are similar in color, right? But, I want to finish HOHRH first, so I will kick back and enjoy your progress in the meantime :-)

  10. Oh, I vote for Oatmeal for A New Beginning too - I kitted mine up with 40 ct flax linen...
