To steal a line from one of my favourite films ‘You’ve Got Mail’, ‘I just can’t seem to help myself ‘when it comes to cross stitching and craft shops. xD A couple of weekends ago I went to the Isle of Wight for a family party and while I was there of course we ended up in a craft shop called TAJ Crafts. If you are every in that part of the world I would suggest going as its such a sweet little shop bursting with wool, thread and material for all your crafting needs and the two women who own the shop are very friendly and helpful.
Anyway while I was in this shop I of course noticed the cross stitch section and of course I bought some kits that caught my eye. Yes I know I know I have a long list that I’m not making any smaller but when you see them you will agree with me that I had to buy them. 🙂 With it being Halloween I of course had to buy the ghost 👻 and I just couldn’t get over how small the tiddlers one is! 🦋
The Christmas ones I didn’t buy, my mum very kindly bought them for me. 🙂 She said she went to hobbycraft and bought me a couple of small presents, which was a very nice surprise. 🐧 Better make a start on them as Christmas is fast approaching! 🎄
I have also finished the third and final Kokeshi doll! I still think my favourite is the second one I stitched as it has different colours, the blue and pink one are pretty but they’re just different shades of one colour. Now I just need to decide on who to give them to that is if I can bare to part with them. xD
Can you bare to part with your creations? Even though I buy and make them with the intention of giving them away as presents, when I finish them I am a little sad to see them go. xD But then again when I see the recipient’s face light up on receiving the present, it makes it all worthwhile. 🙂
