A Whole Lotta Latte

Cross stitch kit

This is my new cross stitch kit I received in the mail yesterday.  I love the vivid colors and can't wait to start working on it.  I don't rotate right now but I may decide to and this one will definitely be in the rotation.  The price on this from was better than other places and I've had very good service with them.

Time to Stitch Again

Took me a bit but I finally found a good site that listed the colors, gave the DMC number and lined each one up with the symbol on the pattern.  I came as close as I could with what I had on hand and am not going to quibble about any slight differences at this point.  My goal was to work at getting back into this lovely craft and since I'm keeping Blue Santa for myself I don't care if there inconsistencies.  I just need to start stitching again.

Have some beautiful kits I'd like to get into but I do have a few that have not been finished yet, so those should probably come first.

I also have a few, or more, kits I've found that I really, really want to get.  Pay bills first then see how much I have to spend, as long as I keep it reasonable.  Christmas isn't all that far away and I'm always aware of how fast it sneaks up on us.
