I've started reading Amy Winehouse by her dad Mitch, which I am enjoying even though its a bit of a slow starter. I either read loads of books one after the other or struggle to find one I like. Below is cross-stitch kit that I am working on. It was a bargain find by Mr R at a local market and I was a bit dubious at first when I started it as it was 'Made in China' and I wasn't sure of the quality or colours of the threads. The colours are really lovely and very accurate to the pattern however the threads had to be kept short as they would snap. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.
Below is a lovely tapestry kit given to me by a friend from my Thursday club. Its a cushion cover, worked in long and short stitch and the colours will go perfectly with my new bedroom...so I'm looking forward to getting started with it. I love to work with wools.
