But have had a lovely week off, tidied up my stitchy stash (is messy again now but not the point!) did some stitching (not as much as i previously planned), saw my family & bought more stash!!
Ok, there we go! Stash pic one is a card kit from The Bold Sheep called tree light tangle I picked up from John Lewis, along with some of the Anchor Lame threads, plan on using them to stitch the tree lights in the kit to make it a little more christmassy! Picture 2 is the stash I picked up from my local craft shop, masons. Really nice place, sells lots of different crafty items including alot of cross stitch stuff. Picked up Nora Corbett's 'Ivy' chart, DMC stranded cotton shade card, 2 mini chart books for the DMC Linen threads & almost the entire set of DMC Linen threads!! (bit of a spending spree but my mum works there and I get to use her 20% off everything staff discount!) Lastly had been admiring Shell's work over at 'cross those stitches' and finally caved and bought the DMC raindeer card kit or as Shell's nicknamed it 'Dopey Raindeer' (Bargin on ebay @ £1.50!)
Dragonfly Tile was a download from patternsonline.com & is my Nan's chrstmas present. The green backstitched border is meant to have confetti stitched flowers in it but I ran out of time to do them as I went to see her on Saturday; She really liked her present (she's like a big kid, mention presents and she want's it straight away!) but as she's decorating her house atm she wasn't too sure where to put it! Second photo here is my current WIP, tree light tangle, I started it on Saturday and have just got the lights & backstitch to do now!
