Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, last Sunday I went to Hobbycraft. Gotta love popping home to visit the parents and them suggesting a trip there!

I picked up three cross stitch kits, and promised to knit my mum a shawl over Christmas (lucky her!)

Firstly: a new start! It will eventually say ‘make today amazing’

I didn’t think the start recording how long it’s taking me to make this but hopefully I’ll remember for the other kits I have! When this one is finished, it will go in a hoop as a Christmas present for one of my friends, who expressed a desire to fill her house with hand-made things πŸ™‚

I also got a similar one for myself

I’m looking forward to making this for myself, it’s so bright and colourful! Again, will go in a hoop when it’s finished.

And finally, a gorgeous wolf head!

This is also quite small- 5 by 7 inches I think. But it’s on 18 count, so detailed and fiddly to do! Again, looking forward to doing this when I get around to it!

So much to do, so little time! (And I may or may not have ordered the yarn for another 2 jumpers, but it hasn’t yet arrived so I can’t talk about that yet…)

  1. They are all such lovely kits! Your wolf is really lovely and will look stunning when complete

  2. I love the look of cross stitches quotes, have fun!

  3. I like those quote kits! I am saving up some Emma Congdon to do, her lettering is on point.

  4. Yay! to buying crafty stuff – well it is autumn, lots of dark evenings to craft in coming up. My cross stitch is languishing and now I think of it, has been left so long it should be officially designated a UFO 😦 Look forward to seeing the new yarn.

  5. Nice! I finally admitted that cross stitch is not my thing and donated a bunch of half-finished stuff. I admire those who can do it!

    • I have to be in the right frame of mind, and I’ve learnt that I’m a lot pickier about what I like in cross stitch, but it is fun πŸ™‚ You just have to accept that it’s rather slow!

  6. They all look such fun!
