more glitter

It's a well known craft fact that there can never be too much glitter.
our original 5mm glitter ribbon selection - 19 pastel colours
And I have just extended that to:
There can never be too much glitter.  Or ribbon. 
 and 18 new, bolder, stronger colours added today
I think you are officially now spoilt for choice :-)

DIY felt cross stitch

 Do you remember my cross stitch Lion Cushion that I made from a kit (that we sell in the shop)?
 I loved stitching the design, and whilst I was sewing I wondered why you couldn't get the felt that I was stitching through without buying a kit ... then I found some and it was super-expensive (poop)
 ...but I didn't stop there, I found some more - and this is £1.50 for an A4 size sheet, MUCH nicer on the purse ;-)
 It comes in white or cream and it's screaming out for some colourful stitches .... what shall I make first?
It's on the website here if you want to take a look: http://www.paper-and-string.net/embroidery-stitchables

Christmas Crafting is coming, but first....

...first, we have Halloween ...
 ...and it's very cute indeed!
All these fabrics glow in the dark too!  How cool is that?
 The owls eyes glow...
 and so does the spider's web
 I'm not a spider lover  -  but if they were all this cute I wouldn't mind them so much :-)
Halloween fabric can all be found here:  http://www.paper-and-string.net/#!halloween-genre/fs1mx
More Halloween things will be coming this way very soon :-)

Deliveries

 Two big deliveries arrived today....
 ....everything got counted & checked off, then put onto the website...
 ...and then I had to find room to squeeze it all in :-)
 It's quite amazing how the barn feels full, but there's always wiggle room for more :-)
 It took an hour to fill the embroidery threads up....but I'll be glad I did it when I'm picking and packing them :-)
