Today the mailman brought me a couple of Ebay wins. Firstly a Crop-a-dile. I had heard that these were a bit expensive but a much better buy that the ordinary eyelet punches on the market and as I have stitched a couple of floss tags I wanted something that would work and not ruin the projects. I looked at a lot of UK craft sites but most places were selling these around £30 so I went onto Ebay and found this one with a starting bid of £14.99 so I placed my bid and waited and now it's mine. It came complete with the pink carry case and the eyelets. I will further report on this after I have tried it out.
My second Ebay 'win' was Little by Little's Quaker Blackbird. This is such a lovely pattern and I can't wait to stitch it. I have two others patterns that I also won but they haven't arrived yet. Also in this picture are some more of my personalized thread drops - the recipients names are on the back and I will be sending these out to them shortly.
I am still working on exchanges and gifts - most are stitched so I really need a marathon finishing session but today it was bright and sunny here so I am sure you can probably guess where I spent most of the day!
Have you seen the beautiful scissor keeps that Yuko
has for sale in her Etsy shop? They are really gorgeous and I could not resist buying the shell butterfly one. Go have a look and see if you can resist them!
Thanks for visiting
