Is Stash-er one of Santa's Reindeer?

She would fit right in there with Dasher and Donner, Prancer and Blitzen, Stasher and Cupid.... 
you get the picture... hehehe.

So on to this little reindeer's stash from my hooking retreat. 
You see it wasn't all about rug hooking; Camp Wool also carries several designers of cross stitch and while perusing the wool and antiques we came across the cross stitch nook.

Found two PS Christmas patterns in the discount bin and the other PS I picked up at the Retreat fundraising "yard sale"; all proceeds went to the local food pantry. 

Some fun woolly things, including my first ever applique. 
The Gingerbread Man garland was too sweet to pass up, I picked this up at Attic Heirlooms 

along with the cast iron sheep and 
the ooooo, I am so excited mauve wools to add to my ship.

The lovely hand painted box and the wool under it was from a door prize at the retreat. We did not bring anything to participate as it was our first time; they drew our names and we declined since we did not bring something but several shops and ladies brought multiples to ensure everyone got something. So after everyone who had participated had drawn, the ladies insisted we pick something. What a nice group of folks.

And I picked up a few pieces of wool at Camp Wool to use on my Libby Hound rug.

And as always my GF had a few tricks in her bag.... 
She hooked us up with a cozy mug for java, tea or cocoa, 
which came in handy after that brisk walk Saturday morning. 

She is so good at putting these kind of things together.

In closing, I will show you my PS Seasons Greeting (over-one) that I put more stitches to last Tuesday. Those trees are beautiful but that's a WHOLE LOTTA GREEN.... I feel like I will never get done with them. And I still have the other side to do.

I am saving the little red cardinal for last; my little treat to complete.

Keep on Stitching and Hooking.

P.S. I will draw a winner for the give-a-way on Sunday; be sure to leave a comment on the previous post. ;)

That was a very nice gesture for the ladies to have you share in the fun of getting goodies too. Love your penny rug and black sheep. I have a black sheep that was given to me by a friend and I love it.
