it's here, it's here!!!

Yes my halloween copy of Just Cross Stitch finally arrived!!!!
so excited!!! Found too many designs I want to stitch!

Obviously I couldn't just order a magazine...these are the other bits that snuck their way into my basket prior to checkout :)
LHN Tree Farm, WMD Primative Greetings, Stitchy Kitty's Snowman Trio (and the buttons to finish)
Plum Streets Christmas Is Coming & Threadwork Primative's Kingle's Crow

Stashing aside I have also been stitching today, here is how button button is progressing, pretty happy with the way it's turning out so far. I am almost halfway though :)

I have two other bits of crafty news to share, firstly I discovered Ravelry today. I'd heard of it before but after an email from stitchyangel about some mitts she finished recently I thought I'd go and check it out....big mistake!! I have found sevenal patterns I've been wanting to knit/crochet, many from Attic24 of who's work I am a great fan! It's all such colourful hooky goodness :)

My second bit of craftying news is that I have found a craft group about 5 mins away from my workplace, they meet every Thursday from 9 till 12 at a local tea room called Rosie's. The group is affectionatly called 'Needles and Natter' and apparently any and all types of needles are accepted! I'm going along on Thursday to check it out and I'm thinking of taking either Witchy Brew or Dandy Dreams with me. Originally I was going to take Button Button but I think I may have it finished before then but if not I may take it along and finish it.

Till Next Time, Happy Stitching!!

Lovely new stash Fiona - well done. Love the Plum Pudding chart. Let me know what you think of the Halloween one - I was a little disappointed this time xx

Plum pudding?? Lol I quite liked the Halloween issue but I agree that last years was better by far. Hopefully the Christmas issue will be upto it's usual standard :) xx
