On Monday I went to Wallingfod with my mum & Margaret, a friend of the family. Margaret is also a craft person and had been telling my mum about a papercraft shop there called Poppy Craft, so naturally we had to go and check it out! I tagged along as I do dabble in papercrafts such as scrapbooking and have been known to make the occasional card, also many of the embellisments meant for papercraft work very well in cross stitch, namely charms, brads, buttons etc. I've been looking for a scrapbook to display some of my cross stitch in for a while so when I spotted this hamper set I couldn't say no! The lamb die-cut sheet came seperately but otherwise everything in the picture was included!
Also picked up the new Cross Stitcher (I love the free gift this month, the little mirror pouch is so sweet!) & the new Cross Stitch Collection, the new Joan Elliott fairy set is stunning!
Finally got home and discovered that my subs copies of World Of Cross Stitch & Cross Stitch Card Shop had also arrived that day, again some lovely designs & free gifts!
Spent the evening finding homes for my lovely new stash, cross checking new threads agains charts making sure I actually have all the threads I need and reading through my new magazines. All in all it was a lovely day to start what will be a very busy week.
See you all on Friday for the next TUSAL update!!
