I don’t think I’m going to have to pull out any stitches in my prostitutes cross stitch. I’m pretty sure the Aida is big enough and the pattern is small enough that, even with two extra letters in it, there will still be plenty of cloth left on the right side. 

today is a good day

Exciting mail day!

I won a couple cross stitch kits, Cinderella and Prince Charming, from cross-my-heart-stitch/Maggie’s giveaway and they arrived today!

First of all, Maggie is awesome. If you aren’t following her yet then you should be, at least at her cross stitch blog but her other blogs are awesome as well. (Her main is recreating-yours-truly). I don’t know if she already knew that purple is favourite colour, and I know she doesn’t know I love shiny things, but she packed everything in a metallic purple envelope which I love as much as everything that was inside. You can’t tell from the picture just how pretty it is, but it’s gorgeous. (And yes, I am easily distracted by everyday objects.)

When I finally managed to open the pretty envelope (it was hard, that seal did not want to break!) I found out that, because Maggie is so awesome, she added extra things in there! I love it all but of the bonuses I think my favourites are the pretty bobbins. I’ve been admiring hers, but I’ve only found plain white ones around here.

This is perfect because I’ve been wanting to pick up some kits to take with me when I travel. I never want to lug my big projects with me, especially since I don’t always feel like stitching when I’m away. My days are filled with exhausting horse stuff, sometimes I just feel like watching TV and going to bed. But the last time I was away I found myself wishing I had something to stitch at least one of the nights, and kits are perfect to take since they’re so small. I have a friend with a four year old daughter who is obsessed with Disney princesses, so I’m going to stitch up Cinderella and Prince Charming for her. The sunflower I think my grandma would love when I’m done with it. Or maybe my dad? He loves flowers and gardening but I’m not sure he’s the kind of guy who would hang a cross stitch on the wall.

So thanks Maggie. I love it all! *hugs* ^.^

AHhhhHhHhh! *hugs* I’m so happy. I’m glad you like everythiiiing! I knew immediately that I had to get you some bobbins when you mentioned you liked mine. That envelope was hard to open because I reinforced the seal with industrial strength glue…lol (I didn’t want anything escaping!)
I hope you enjoy stitching!!!

PS. The stitched Portal 2 gift I sent to a friend in The Netherlands got his package a whole 4 days sooner than you…what?!

Hahaha! I wondered if you had altered the seal somehow. The whole time I was trying to open it (first I tried by hand, then I tried using my knife to cut through the glue, finally I had the bright idea to use scissors) I pictured you sealing it up while laughing all evil like.

That is strange that the Netherlands one got there sooner. Though, this took about as long as packages normally take to arrive to me when they come from the US. I know customs can sometimes often hold up packages at the border. Maybe that system is different when going overseas?
