#59 2013 TUSAL No1 & Goodies!

Good evening, here is my first TUSAL of 2013 hosted by Daffycat - this year I am using an old Yankee Candle jar to hold them :)


This week the postman has been ever so good to me with all these arriving over the last couple of days. I ordered the 365 Cross Stitch at the end of last year. It has patterns in from Joan Elliott and Margaret Sherry along with loads of others. It does have a few patterns which I already have from magazines, but still plenty I know I will stitch eventually.


The rest are from Sewandso - they had a sale so how could I say no?! I also got a few more things but I can't show you them as the people who they are intended for might see... ;) hehehe.

Tomorrow is the first ever YOTA hosted by Pull The Other Thread. Basically once a month everyone works and posts pictures of long overdue UFOs in the hope by the end of the year we have made some progress! I have something in mind, it is pretty old, I don't think I have ever worked on it while blogging, I will need to find it first of course!

So far there are 17 of us taking part, click the link if you would like to join in the fun or find out more :)

I will post again at the end of the weekend with my stitching progress.

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

    1. It is my first year keeping one - I have seen a few people make them in to ornaments at the end of the year for their Christmas trees and I thought that was a nice idea :)

      Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I figure for £7.99 once a year then it is worth it, personally I think last years was better but as I say that might be because I already had some of the patterns in this one. But there are certainly some projects I will be stitching from it :)

    1. Definitely! I find sometimes they are more expensive than others but most of the time when I order I get them the next day!
