Strange weather we are having at the moment, beautiful sunshine yesterday, raining stair rods today but that’s British Summertime for you! I wonder what tomorrow will bring? Hopefully the rain will rinse the sky and the sun will shine brightly for the next few weeks as we slowly slip into Autumn, which I have to admit, is my favourite time of year.
Speaking of Autumn, Bothy Threads have released their Autumn collection of counted cross stitch kits, 23 new designs, including five new kits from the popular Wrendale series by Hannah Dale, Piggy in the Middle, Family Pride, Festive Feathers, Pumpkin Spice and Rockin’ Robins.
They have also included four new Christmas Cards cross stitch kits, two cute designs by Margaret Sherry, Winter Woof and Under the Mistletoe, along with two blackwork style designs, Stars in the Bright Sky and All Wrapped Up.
My personal favourite though is Hallow Elly, there is nothing scary about this Halloween cross stitch, Elly is riding her broomstick in a flowing purple cape with her cat safely settled in her cauldron, cute as a button!
