@rotfl: I could say the same for me with Bothy Threads and all their Wrendales! @rotfl:

I've seen that gorgeous kitty cat before on cross stitch websites and always thought it was stunning. Those eyes! And I love The Garden Door that's gorgeous too! So many lovely new kits can't wait to see you stitch them :D

Thank you both :) The larger kits I've had a few months & 4 smaller ones I bought recently. As I said in another post, I buy most of the Dimensions kits from Supermart USA via Amazon. They are much cheaper than UK sites & include postage. Otherwise they come from their sister company in mainland Europe. It is worth the few weeks wait for delivery as I save quite a lot of money.

It is strange how you get drawn to one brand isn't it Nicola? I know you love Bothy Threads, Hannah Dale kits. They are beautifully drawn & turn out as lovely pictures.

Talking about Bothy threads. On TV the past couple of weeks there has been adverts for a Bothy phone which takes pictures in front of you & behind you at the same time. This was the one which when I first saw it mentioned on my laptop I immediately thought of Bothy Threads & I posted about it on here as it made me laugh! : lol: Now they are for general sale, just right for Christmas! I won't be buying one though :)

My two new Bothy Threads kits with their respective greetings cards. The fox is going to be wrapped up for Christmas but I must confess I started the Peacock last night :wink:

:D These are really lovely Nicola. I especially like the fox, the pink of the foxgloves is lovely against its fur. Look forward to seeing the peacock on here soon.

Now I wonder why you would do that Nicola :lol: Both are gorgous and the Peacock very much so.

During my day with Barb in Perth, she was showing me the huge stash of wools she had been gifted with and the beautiful multi colour one came to light. It was the same one I had been looking at in the wool shop in Freemantle we had gone to earlier so she gifted me the 4 100gr balls. The other is a soft grey to go with it for a plain knit jumper. I need a 'no brainer' piece of knitting especially for after the cataract op which I have been told will be within the next 3 months - Yippeeee.


Thank You Barb for your gift -you are such a blessing.Image

They are gorgeous Sally :applesauce:

Well I had £15 of Paypal money so what did I do? Bought another Wrendale! I really don't need another as I already have three and two WIPs but I've always loved these two guinea pigs. It's called 'Lettuce be Friends' :lol:

Need to find a German shop that carries them, I guess.

Awwww I'm sure somewhere would post out to you in Germany. But perhaps shipping costs may be too expensive? I will do a little research and find out for you xxx

What a kind gift from your friend, Sally! I love the pink wool with the different shades and the grey compliments it. It will be fun to knit with.

Nicola, the guinea pigs are adorable!

:wub: :wub: Sooo cute this one Nicola. Loved it when we had guinea pigs, they are such friendly little creatures. Look forward to seeing this one on here soon. Bet you can't wait to start it. You'll have quite a menagerie in your house with your lovely Hannah Dale designs. Another lovely purchase of yours. What will you buy next I wonder? Can't wait to see if more Bothy Threads cute designs catch our eye. :D
