Birthday Stitching Stash

My parents gave me some money for my birthday, which gave me enough to order the supplies kit for Chatelaine's Illuminated Medieval Sampler.

These are the overdyed colours for the design:

Since I was already shopping and had a tiny bit of money to spare, I also ordered Papillion Creations' Quaker Game Board. I was tempted by the thread pack as well, but that was getting a bit extreme, especially since it will probably be a few years before I get to stitch it.

To top it all off, the wonderful Fudgey gave me the new HAED release of Teri Rosario's Fire Element. She even admitted that she had, ah, encouraged Michele to get it finished in time for my birthday. I love this and would love to start it soon, but I'm sticking with my "don't make the rotation any bigger than necessary" plan. Since I'm planning to add some kind of birth sampler to it soon anyway, this beautiful chart will have to wait.

I think the bright colours are in the DMC colours as there are a lot of those as well. I was a bit surprised at first as well.
