#30 We went on an adventure! 

Today has been a good Thursday! Today I spent the day in London exploring with my fiancé for our 5 year anniversary! We went to the London Dugeons, Camden Market & general exploring 🙂 A great day! 💜

The only thing I always miss when out shopping & exploring is a decent craft store! It really is sad that craft stores are so  far & few between. I certainly didn’t see any on my travels today & I’m forced to go online for my crafty needs 😐

Do any of you have a decent craft store near you, or are you forced to shop online? 

Anyway, For throwback this week I thought I’d share a small pattern I completed last year. Once I completed this one I made it into a card. Before the one I posted yesterday I think this was the last one I made. Here it is: 

  
Isn’t she cute? 

I really need to make cards more often! They’re small projects that give you the satisfaction of a finish & it doubles up as a gift as well! 

I made this one for a friend last year & it was made as a birthday/Christmas card ☺️ The design was a free chart that came with World of cross stitching… I think. Please correct me if I’m wrong. 

I think cross stitch cards are probably the most common gift I make for friends & family. Who doesn’t like receiving a good card?(I really am one of those people that keeps every card I’m given ☺️)

What cards have you made? Share your links below so we can take a look ☺️

I hope this post finds you all well!

  1. I have never made a cross stitch card 😦 I definitely should remedy that and make that a goal in 2016. They are so cute and like you said they probably go really quick. Your little fairy is so sweet. How could the recipient not smile at that?

    • Exactly! it’s just a quick stitch & useful to do when you are loosing stitchy motivation on larger projects. I usually have a big project on the go & do small cards when I am having a break from it. That way I’m not distracted too long but have the great feeling of a finish 🙂
