Titania and some new stash

Thanks for all the WIPocalypse comments and birthday wishes over the last few posts. In answer to the question about my stitching rotation, I don't have a set rotation. If anything it is more of a screaming rotation- whatever looks most appealing usually wins until I get bored with it or until obligation stitching comes up. Right now Titania has been interesting to stitch but I will put her down soon to start Mason's birth announcement. Still waiting on the kit to arrive but I got some replacement fabric for the Aida in the kit when I made a trip to the LNS yesterday to spend my Christmas/birthday money. Here's the haul...

Stash 1/18/12
In addition to the birth announcement fabric I got fabric for TW's Fantasy Triptych. That gives me one more fully kitted project so I will add it to my WIPocalypse list as a potential new start. The rest of my haul includes Christmas Favorites by The Prairie Schooler, Ornaments Ala Round by Glendon Place, Winter Box by The Victoria Sampler, a few Sue Hillis pirate sayings, and all 3 of the Magi by Mill Hill.
Oh, and before I forget to post it...

Titania 1/19/12

Thought you might like to see the latest progress on Titania. She's getting so close, mostly just her wings and the beading left now.
Not much else going on around here except a lot of winter weather and of course the ongoing potty training battle which I think has just about been won. The beginning of last week was rough but I think Josh has pretty much caught on and is happy to wear his big boy pants. What will we do with all that extra diaper money? :)

Your Titania is lovely, and she's missing her wings and beads, just like my JGF!! Can't wait to see your fairy all done.

Sorry I've not been reading for a while - it's nice to be catching up with some cyber friends.

Wow, lovely project! And I'm so excited to hear you're thinking about TWs FT - I really loved stitching it. Everyone kept telling me about the 'dreaded greens', but I like green, and I found stitching the trees very therapeutic!

Titania is gorgeous! Your stash is really great. And the answer to your question - buy more stash, of course!! LOL

Oooo, stash. (I live vicariously through everyone else's lately.)

And Titania looks lovely! I need to dig out a Mira to work on sometime soon.

Don't tease about the diapers - Maura will be 2 in March, so we've still got a while to go!! Although I do remember the celebration when she turned 1 and we used up the last of the formula.... :)

Sh looks beautiful. Love the fabbie you're stitching her on as well.
