Here we go again. I’ve done half a small cross stitch kit, and prepped another one ready to start and already I’m off in internet land looking to see what other kits or charts I can buy. The shopping bug has obviously been lying dormant for the past ten years and a few stitches has brought it back to the surface and in full-on Gimme mode.
I made the mistake of following a link that Tree posted on Facebook, and from there I followed another link and another and eventually found myself looking at the most gorgeous cross stitch chart you’ve ever seen. I’m not going to actually buy it, you understand. I am just looking. Really. But, don’t you think it’d be nice to have a couple on the go? A Disney one in nice primary colours and this one, called The Library.
Isn’t that so me? Books! Oh yeah. And such lovely grungy colours. It’s 16″ x 8″ (40cm x 20cm) and worked on 32 count Linen (2 over 2). I haven’t worked on anything but Aida before so that’d be interesting to do. And it’s nicely broken down into blocks to make it manageable.And there’s also this one which would go very nicely next to it on the wall when it eventually got stitched.
Both are by a company called Little House Needleworks and they have rather a lot of delicious charts to pick from. Also they’re available to buy from my online store of choice here in the UK, Sew and sew, who will also pick all materials you need to complete the project. Now, isn’t that nice of them? Of course, it would cost in the region of £50 for the chart and all the bits which is somewhat of a deterrent so I am going to step away from the very delicious charts.
Maybe I’ll find them in a shop in Florida on our next hols. I might even have got the existing kit mountain down sufficiently by then. Hmm, there’s a thought.
