Yesterday's Bargains and Today's Stitching

As promised here are the pictures of my bargains that I bought yesterday.

I have two patterns to use with this Foxy. This was D's choice a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait to knit with it.

I have a pattern for a top to use with this one. Hopefully it might encourage the sun to come out.

Well, this is where I managed to get to last night with the Clarice Cliffe cross stitch.
Today was a catch up day on the Take a Stich on Tuesday, and although I missed the first four weeks and am going to do one of the stitches this week, I am waiting until later in the week. I wanted to try and get this cross stitch finished.
I have been stitching like mad and have managed to complete the green trees. Weyhey, no more green, or at least not for a day or two.

Tomorrow we are of to see Mamma Mia! so won't be able to spend much time stitching, but we are also visiting Hobbycraft. The boys want to make some Shrek themed notebook covers and we need some supplies, and you know mum, she will need something too.

Wow, you sure have some neat yarns over there in England. Not too terribly much variety at the local crafts store here in California. Perhaps if I knew where to look. And thanks for your post on my blog. :)

I had a wander round hobbycraft today but we also have a shop called the Range which I think is a chain and they are often cheaper for arty things - paint, craft etc

Love the look of both of those yarns - top bargains!
Great progress on the CC piece.
Oh I so want to see Mamma Mia but every time I mention it DS just grunts & DS mutters "Chick flick", so guess I'll be waiting for the DVD to come out. Have fun! :0)
