WOW! A year long SAL...
Hello wonderful friends :)
Well as you see from the title that WOW! Goodness a year long SAL!! I thinks its awesome! And who is hosting this?? Ah ha... a truly delightful happy person that hosts amazing things all year round...
Its Jo from Serendipitous Stitching..
If you want to know more about this year long SAL then I have a link... HERE or click the smaller square the same as the large one at the top of this post which says "Gifted Gorgeousness". Wonderful idea Jo :)
As you all know I have been happily stitching the wonderful Prairie Schooler charts from the latest Cross Stitch Collection magazine...
And I have completed the snowman one...
Thought I would make a start on the next one.... Santa..
So that is where I am now...
This one is stitching up quicker than I thought.
I went out today with my dad to bingo.. and we won!! ha ha yes we actually did!! H ha not a lot.. and we share it between us! We go for the fun element and to catch up really..
After bingo, I dropped dad off and guess where I went? See well you know I stitched the snowman one.. and well I started the santa.. I was missing 4 colours.. and well yes I had some, I tried to match them with other DMC colours in the range you know by moving across a shade or two. Nothing looked good and I knew it just did not feel right. So with my little winnings from bingo I went to Hobbycraft and bought the 4 threads I needed. OMG!! 90p for 1 DMC colour!!! Shocked is an understatement. But I needed them as I wanted santa's face and coat to look good.
This is a difficult one for all us stitchers out there... all over the world threads are different prices but OMG 90p!! I want to stitch with the threads,... I mean all the charts I have come across use either DMC or Anchor... so you have to buy them!
Just let me... AAARrrrrrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
Sorry I think that was necessary! Feel better now!
Another thing I want to just chat about is how amazing all of you are out there... I hop about peoples blogs and you are all so lovely. I dont think I have ever met a more wonderful community of people. A lot of you host giveaways.. and or pass on things.. and even send happy things through the post... I have never felt so accepted anywhere... I am so happy I started blogging and 'met' you all. I love leaving comments on your blogs... I love seeing what you all get up to... its brilliant :) And most of all I love to join in on things.. its great fun. Oh did I ramble? I hope you understand what I have put?
So Thank You to all of you :)
