Market Stash!!!!!!

I am a very lucky stitcher!!! I was able to get everything I wanted from the new releases at market!!!!  I thought I would show you pictures of everything.  First up is the new BBD book, In Friendship's Way.  Whenever BBD has a book I will buy it because they are always THE BEST!!  I like to look through them again and again.  They are very inspiring.  There is a sampler in this book that I immediately went nuts over.  It is the 1861 Antique Sampler.  I had to start it immediately.  My friend Pat picked out this great Lakeside Linen to stitch it on.  It is Vintage Pearled Barley.  Love!!!!






Here is the sampler that I was waiting for!!!!  Last August when we went to The Attic we were so lucky to meet designer, Tanya Brockmeyer!!  She was so kind and generous with her time.  We were able to see the original of some of the samplers she has reproduced.  This Mary Betchell 1810 sampler was on the drawing board at the time and I went "ape" over it.  
Isn't it glorious?????  I started it yesterday and I am having so much fun already!!!  That means that I need to revise my 5 WIPS....will keep you posted on that.
 I was so drawn to these sweet birdies!  The colors used on this piece are so sweet!  I have to see if my Mom has some vintage buttons for me to use. 
 I intend to stitch the top piece in this chart for my red and white sampler wall.  Love this one!
Here is another amazingly gorgeous sampler from The Scarlett House.  I want to start this one ASAP too!!!! I love that border!!!!
 Here is another sweet birdie!!!!!  Love his little hat!
 This lovely little chart from BBD was not on my radar and then we pulled the colors and I fell in love.  It looks like a pretty quick stitch too - well, at least in comparison to the huge samplers that I seem to be collecting lately.
 I loved all of the Stacy Nash farm animal releases and wanted them all, but decided to start with the chickens.  They are so sweet.
 Upon seeing this chart, it was a must purchase.  Love the lady with her flag, flowers, stars and eagles!
 I saw the models of these charts and was a goner.  Just gorgeous!
 Here is a piece that was not new at market but is a recent purchase so I thought I would throw it in.  Scattered Seed Samplers has so many amazingly great charts!!!


And now for something completely different, I have two finishes!!!!!!!!!  As you can tell, I really am going to town with my red/white samplers!!!  They are a blast to stitch!!!!  Thanks to my friend Pat for such a great idea!!!
Hope everyone else was able to secure a lot of goodies from market!!!

So many lovely things to see here! I have to agree about the BBD books. I yet to see one I didn't like. Congrats on the nice stash haul.

I bought some of the same charts you did; wish I had ordered the BBD book as well.

I have buttons if your mom doesn't and would be glad to give you a bunch.

Love your Market choices. Seems like so many designers excelled themselves this year - I'm trying to be good and just make a list for now. Not sure how long that will last!!!

Enjoy your new stash! I love the 1861 Antique Sampler, but I will have to think about getting that BBD books. Those books are pricey. Stars and Stripes is already on my list. This year there are so many new charts I love!
