Forgot to post this the other day......Yeyyy, more new stash alert :0)

Forgot about this one, nearly......Blame the man flu!!
Was given a link to 'Buy Now' 150 threads for £10.
Couldnt resist & they turned up safely a few days ago. All threads are compatible with DMC but, even though they look right, wont be risking mixing them with my normal DMC threads!!

Official finish number 6......Aliens!!!!!

I was only trying to finish the Alien outline but, due to a little bit of 'Man Flu' & some extra stitchy time (sometimes being ill is handy), I managed to finish the whole thing :0)

Must admit, Ive had a bit of a shock at how big this piece is, its going to take a bit of time!!!!

Pay day & Etsy are a bad combination!!!

Or should this post be called 'More new stash alert'!
Well, after finding that gorgeous Dc Who pillow yesterday, I managed to resist buying it for less than a day.....While I was on Etsy, thought I may aswell buy the other 2 Id fallen in love with, well, it is payday, would be rude not too :0)

New stash alert!!!

Was very pleased with my fabric I ordered from Stephs Hand dyed fabrics that finally arrived today. I can finally start my Tribal Mickey challenge piece.
Also found this gorgeous chart for Dc Who pillow which I will have to buy......& the bonus being, as its a pillow, I dont have to worry about my major lack of wall space :0)

Official finish 5.........Im on a roll :0)

Cant believe Ive had 2 finishes in 2 days & Yes, it is Mr Sexy Pants David Tennant this time :0)

Happy Valentines everyone

Am very pleased with my BF today, we have a rule about not buying flowers, I hate seeing them dead a few days later & he wouldnt know where to start in buying me any cross stitch stash unless I have asked for something specific. He still wanted to get me something crafty though so he got me this, I have a new pet, he's stunning :0)

Nooooooooo, ran out of floss :0(

I was so close to the next official finish, only one word to go & I ran out of floss, Bah Humbug.
Must admit, I never expected 1 skein to get this far so, quite impressed really
