Fun in the Sun!

Hello everyone!

How is everyone? Did you all miss me? I know its been a while (again) since I posted but to be fair I have been away on holiday for the past two weeks!

I have very little to report stitching wise, I took a small kit with me but in the entire two weeks did about 30 stitches - there was just no time, or if there was I was distracted by Wimbledon (GOOOO MURRAY!) or by the pool calling my name...

While away in Florida I of course took a trip to one of the craft stores. While going to pick up the food shopping on the day we arrived I spotted a Joann's nearby - of course I had to go look!

Well you stitchers in the states are so lucky! Everything is SO much cheaper - three skeins of floss for 99 cents?! Here is about 50 pence for one!

As tempted as I was to clear out the entire floss stock instead I picked up two kits which have been on my bucket list for a while, again, so much cheaper than if I had of bought them here!

Disney Dreams - Little Mermaid
Fall Fairy
Other than that not much else to report. Fingers crossed now the holiday is done with (*cries*) I can get back in to the swing of things with stitching. For now here is some photos from my holiday - enjoy!

    1. Haha yes, but going in to the building where the penguins live was heaven to get away from the heat :D

      I don't really have an option around here, any craft shops near me have little/no cross stitch.. :(

      Did you see the Gorjuss pattern in WOXS? x
