Oh no Gabrielle! I must admit some of mine had gone astray and I sorted them properly but they weren't as bad as that! :cry: I'm waiting on a bunch of paper bobbins arriving and then I will be adding them to my thread box xxx

I spent an hour and re-strung everything and made it all nice and neat again.

Here are my newest acquisitions and, yes, they are Wrendales! ;) The first one is called 'Amongst the Foxgloves' and I've had my eye on it for a while. The second is called 'Practically Perfect' and is one of eight new Wrendales which was released last night. He's really stunning isn't he? I was going to get the Pheasant but this Peacock just called to me. I also got a Bothy Threads needle minder too. Can't wait for them to arrive :whoop:

Great designs. Both are adorable. I've been looking at this fox for some time now. I am afraid I will end in stitching him too.

Enjoy your newest acquisitions! Happy stitching!

Oh lovely! We had a small pet shop along the road from us and there was a large Red Macaw that was the owners and used to sit on a perch and talk to you as you wandered round. He was lovely :) xxx

These kits do make me smile and the colours are so vibrant. I wonder which one you will stitch first?

Thought I'd take advantage of the extra hour & add my latest arrivals.

I have been looking at The Garden Door for a couple of years & decided I would buy it. The colours are more vibrant on the actual kit, they don't show up quite as well on here.

The kitten one I will do my usual way & not reverse the top stitch as per instructions. It got confusing when I tried before so will keep to my usual way. No one know once it is completed & framed.

BTW I don't have shares in Dimensions! :lol: I just like their kits :)

That looks an interesting selection of kits to keep you busy over the winter months. Nice to hear someone likes Dimensions kits - I find their instruction sheet a right royal pain.. :)
Looking forward to seeing you stitch these kits up :applesauce: :applesauce: :applesauce:
