A Very Late Post...

Well, it's been a while since I posted on here...Life has a funny way of taking over!

We have been to New York - what a fantastic week we had!  We saw all the main sights, and walked a lot around the city.  We also had the experience of the earthquake and Hurricane Irene, so we got the whole deal!  We are already looking forward to going to the USA again...

Whilst in the USA, I met up with a fellow cross-stitcher that I met on Facebook.  We went to a Cross Stitch Shop in Clifton, New Jersey, where I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!  The shop is called 'Where Victoria's Angels Stitch', and it has almost every design you could wish for...Needless to say, I spent a small fortune in there, having nothing like that here in the UK!  Here are pictures of what I bought:

 Dragon Dreams Charts

 Ink Circles charts, Q-Snaps and Needle Minder

 Just Nan charts and charms

 Waxing Moon and My Big Toe charts

Caron Waterlilies, Crescent Colours, Weeks Dye Works, DMC and Kreinik threads

I have also been stitching my Lizzie*Kate 'Living with Charm' design:

Other pieces I've stitched are for exchanges and a Baby Nameplate - I'll post pictures of those once I know people have received them all...

Happy Stitching!
