145 - Craft community

One thing I've noticed since I've started doing my blog is that people from the craft community are amazing. Everyone is keen to help each other out and I think that's great.

A while ago I had bought a cross-stitch kit off eBay minus the chart and the lovely Cider with Sophie rushed to my rescue and scanned me the pattern. As you'll have read further down, I did this again this week. I just can't resist a cheap cross-stitch kit.

I posted my dilemma on Twitter, Cross Stitcher's Facebook page and Cross Stitch Crazy's Facebook page. After finding a picture and EVENTUALLY finding what issue it was from, I got a couple offers from some lovely fellow stitchers. I can now say I have the pattern for my Christmas cat sitting in my inbox, so thanks to everyone who offered help on the crafty Facebook pages! So now I can get on it and stitch up my cat in plenty of time for Christmas.

On another Facebook related note, I won a competition on Cross Stitch Crazy's Facebook page for being their 5000's fan! Very happy! I'll let you know what my awesome prize is when I get it.


  1. Awh bless you, thanks! I know what you mean though, it 's great to have that sense of community via blogs which is lacking else where in the craft world. xxx
