Stash Updates :-)

Went to the car boot yesterday and managed to get a few stitchy bargains Got myself a pincushion kit with a cat design on it for £1, a needle case for 50p, the frame was £3 but i'm going to use it to frame a humphrey's corner design once I've stitched it & the best bargain of my day 2 hardback cross stitch books for 80p each!! I also bought some really cool fabric which has a beads & ribbon print on it for £1.50 but forgot to include it in the picture lol, all in all i had a really good day (even if i did get sunburnt!) Went to my local stitchy shop last wednesday & decided to treat myself with the haul pictured below Picked up 3 new kits, some fabric scissors, iron on interfacing, some thread cards & lots of lovely Aida, mostly 14count and a few 16count, they are all cutoffs but are usually big enough to do most designs so i usually pick up a few everytime i go in various colours but this was the first time I'd seen the impressions aidas from DMC in there so I went a little crazy... Also bought some scissor sharpeners & some blue & cream stripey linen fabric to make myself a shopping bag but again forgot to include it in the picture :-)
