I thought it would be nice to show you what I do in my spare time (not that I have that much!) I mostly cross stitch, i've been doing it for probably around 15 years now, ever since my mum bought me my first kit, a little children's one.
I buy most of my kits off eBay, I never used to though! My mum started purchasing them off eBay, and as long as you read the description and check the sellers feedback you should get a good deal. As I prefer to use the auctions than the buy it now prices, as you get better deals. The little mini kit you may recognise from my What I got for Christmas post.
I'm currently working on a few different pieces, as I tend to get bored easily (haha!), this one is a Winnie the Pooh one, that is no longer available (another great thing about shopping on eBay). I have a few of these, and they're meant to be for Ben's bedroom, but I don't think they'll be up until he's 5!
I like to store my kits in these plastic popper folders, or I use plastic bags, although some are still in their original packaging, which I need to sort out as it's not great for storage.
This is a Christmas Dimensions kit that I'm also working on. I love Dimensions, as their kits are always so detailed and look fantastic when finished. I do have other kits I'm working on as well, but thought I'd just show a couple in this post.
I will do follow up posts on my progress of my projects, to add something a little different to my blog.
I hope you liked this post, and what does everyone else do in their spare time? I'd love to know.
I used to do lots of cross stitching before my youngest was born. I'm itching to get back into it and have a huge piece of aida waiting for me. I try to avoid them without to much backstitching if possible. I've not bought off ebay before but will check it out xReplyDelete
Back stitching is definitely the worst thing about it, if I can I try to do it as I go along so I don't get bored and frustrated of doing it all at the end xDelete
