Now I can finish some projects

It seemed to take all day to do the shopping, so there was not a lot of stitching time, but at least the boys will eat and D has trainers that are in one piece.

I got as far as stocking up with the DMC threads I need to finish the exchange piece and the honeysuckle cushion. The little cross stitch kit reduced to 75p is for D. He wants to have a go at stitching it. I also bought a little pack of decoupage sheets to make 5 cards, not bad for 99p. I just have to find my cutting mat and craft knife. I did manage to get a small amount of cross stitching done, again the main colour was white, so nothing too interesting to see. I am about 3 or 4 inches from the armhole shaping on the top so progress has been made there.

As we have to leave early in the morning, today is going to be spent getting the boys packed and ready for tomorrow. As D didn't get to have his haircut a couple of weeks ago, (playing with his friends was more important at the time), I will have to do that today as well.
