A while back a good friend who works in a charity shop gave me a bag of old crafty magazines that would have otherwise been thrown in the rubbish bin.
I immediately put the bag under my desk with every intention of getting the contents out later on when I had time to peruse them.
Well about 9 months down the line and I've finally rememered they were there ...look what they are...
A huge stack of cross stitch goodies!!
Theres loads of interesting patterns and pictures and lots of food for thought.
Now I used to enjoy cross stitch when I was growing up, but then suddenly it became the uncoolest thing ever for a teenager in Manchester so I downed my needle and thread and never really considered it again until now...
But after looking through these magazines I have an irresitable urge to make one of these lovely pictures..
My progress so far is hampered only by my lack aida (I think) fabric, which a swift trip to Hobbycraft will sort out and my seemingly never ending crochet projects!
