Aw jeez I need some money

Or Carriage House Samplings is shutting her doors. I know old news is old, but I need *something* to blog about. In the past two days I’ve ordered both Village & Autumn @ HRH – but I am far from done.

As Life Wears Away

Black Horse Inn


Folk Art Pincushions

Garden Glade

The Mairmaid’s Song

Pear Orchard Farm

Spot The Horse

Tavern Signs Too

1. You don’t want to know what I already own. Seriously, my stash reached epic* years ago.

2. I will probably add more to this list. ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Epic Stash: minimum value of needlework stash on the resale (not retail) market equal to or greater than 1 month’sย mortgage payment.

    So, what the term for your stash if the resale value exceeds two months’ mortgage payments? Or maybe even three?!?! Yeah, I’m that bad/good.

    As Life Wears Away is on my list, too. I’ve never seen the Pincushions. May have to add those as well. I was gearing up for a *nice* order, but we had a water leak. Which lead to other things…. Not sure if that’s gonna jeapordize the stash purchasing or not.

    I’m with Cheryl – my stash would probably pay our mortgage for a whole year (of course, I’ve been stitching a long, long, long time). I thought I was pretty set on her charts, but then my girlfriend asked me if I had Christmas of HRH. Well, of all the stash that I have I don’t have that one. Didn’t intend on stitching it, but you know, in about a year or two I’ll be pulling my hair out because I don’t have it. That’s how it works anyway. :o)

  3. Erin says:

    Well, our mortgage is pretty small, compared to some I know of… (<$800/mo.) …but if that is the definition of epic, then I definitely qualify!!

    Thankfully most of the Carriage House catalog isn't my style….although that could change, and then I'll be out of luck. Hmmm.

  4. Melissa C. says:

    Oh crap. Another EPIC stash here.

    I’m working up my wishlist for CHS. I like nearly all of their designs. Grrr.

  5. Holly says:

    I’m thankful though that CHS isn’t really my cup of tea. This is especially good since I don’t have a job right now!

  6. dianemi says:

    Ooooo as Life Wears Away and those pincushions. Love. I should probably get my hands on Christmas at HRH (you know… before they’re all gone)! lol See that’s how you justify stash (and exceed ‘epic’ status at the same time). ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Laura says:

    I hear ya. I have to snag Frederick soon so Frederika doesn’t end up old and alone. I also need Halloween Magic and probably the other HRH’s that I don’t have and those pincushions are tempting and…sigh.

  8. beritbunny says:

    Definitely on my list: Frederick and Frederika

    Possibly on list: Log Cabin Cat, Patchwork Cats, Patty Parsley, HRH Shores, Withering Tulips. Oh, and Alphablocks!

  9. Suzanne says:

    yeah, I feel your pain….I’m working on my list too………..LOL

  10. Michelle says:

    ikr? I have way too many things of hers I still want. why why why can’t she just keep selling charts. I know, I’m being selfish. But, seriously, does she not realize what a tizzy she’s putting us in?? Love love love your choices. I’m making my list too.

  11. Dani says:

    Oh well my stash has definately reached epic proportions!!!! I’m not a CHS fan, so the news dosen’t sadden me. But it does sadden me to see the list of designers get a little shorter each year.

  12. Pamela-quietgirl255 says:

    I too need more money. I am at least glad I have till July to come up with the money for all the ones I want-instead of just weeks with some other recent needlework/fabric closings.

    Just placed an order today, and will wait a little bit to order Autumn and Christmas at Hawk Run as well-unless I get a tax refund this year (doing them this weekend).

    The problems was, once you start looking at all the lists…you realize all the ones you want and never saw before.

    I am sad to see her stop designing. I am hoping it is a break and not a complete send. She really did some nice stuff. I was wondering if trying to create Autumn and Christmas so soon together was a big stressor.

  13. Siobhan says:

    Nice! I need to buy some more charts, in addition to the charts that I have on their way to me. There’s nothing like jolting awake at 4 am because you’ve remembered a CHS chart that you don’t have!

  14. Karen says:

    Seems like I am always last to know about the needlework closings and openings and what have you! Ugh. I had no idea she was closing her doors. I just put myself on the stash buying wagon, too! Drats! …. temptation…temptation….

  15. Kathy K says:

    I have a few of these on my wish list too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I win the lottery I’ll share.


  16. MarieP says:

    Yikes, I did not know that CHS was closing! Maybe I should bite the bullet and purchase Autumn of HRH.
    I probably should be starting that new Quilting Blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think I have Tavern Signs Too – remind me when I get home to Canada OK
