HMS Victory and new stash

I have worked a bit more on HMS Victory, squashed stitches aside this feels like it's coming along nicely.

I had a bit of a splurge on crafty items. I got this lot from eBay...

I'm going to get the rest of the continent series from the manufacturer as one of them is hard to find here in the UK. I received my order from Thread Pickerz this morning and I absolutely love the colours :) 
I also bought items from eBay, Frumble and My Fabrics to make a bag as well as a purse for myself and a drawstring bag to hold my other half's new headphones in. I may keep those fabrics a surprise until I've actually made the items ;) I'm planning on making a quilt this summer with a friend and most of the fabrics have arrived (I decided to split the order up): 

My parents cleared out my maternal grandparents' house as they have moved to a smaller flat. My nana is also a cross stitcher so I managed to bag these:

There were a couple of all our yesterday's charts which don't have a cover photo as well as a couple of magazines and some aida.

Have you seen the March Loot Crate?! It sounds like it was made for me. Batman, Harley Quinn, Spock, Superman and Alien vs Predator.


  1. Great stash haul! I love those fabrics. I stitched a Heritage kit of a boat (may even have been the same one!) and I know what you mean about the squashed stitches. They look very effective though!

  2. Ooo look at all the fun stuff here! Love the threads; they look wonderful.

  3. Awesome stash! Can't wait to see what you make with them :D

  4. Great stitching :) and those animal maps look really good, I'll be keeping an eye out for when you start stitching them. I'm always unsure about the subscription boxes, but this one sounds great!


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and all comments are appreciated.
