I did get some nice new fabric though. I had a stitching tip printed in Cross Stitch Collection (No 209) and got a £10 voucher from Willow Fabric. This is the second time I've won a voucher for my handy tips! Who said Facebook is a complete waste of time? This is my tip:
"If you're stitching on a budget try stitching over 1 on evenweave. You need a quarter of the fabric and an eighth of the thread. Huge savings there. If you can't manage 28 over 1 then try 25 or 22 count evenweave".
I decided I needed fabric more than anything else. I'm trying to build up my stock of basic colours in evenweave so I don't have to wait to start new projects! I choose two new-to-me fabrics, 19count Ariosa in Antique Rose (right) and 18count Davosa in Evening Rose (left). Both were in the sale and cost £10 together (one FQ and one HalfMetre).
