My NEC haul

Friday I went to the NEC for Hobbycraft & Crafts for Christmas had a lovely day but got stuck in traffic on the M6 coming home, combined with 3 or 4 lots of roadworks within 10 juctions of each other it took 2 1/2 hours to get home. The trip normally takes a little over an hour to do.

The delica's at the top are one's that I ordered from Spellbound and are off my list of ones I need for various planned projects, the cube's are for a Christmas present, the other delica's just because I liked the colours and the 6mm down the bottom are a couple of options for the tassel bit of the snowman ornament.
The poppy kit was a bargin at just £3 but I will be changing the fabric when I evntually get round to it. I was talking to the guy on the stand selling the Sunflower kit and almost didn't buy it because as normal for a UK kit producer it has aida in it (pet hate of mine, aida in kits and flat out refusal to offer charts seperately) but he has promised to send me a piece of evenweave for it and I couldn't resist the Snowman :)
My only card making purchases

I've been tempted by the Mighty Bright clip on light for a while and once I knew it will go on a Q Snap I decided to take the plunge to get it and the adapter for it. I tried it last night and I now know that it's worth every penny and will making doing the over one on Mary Busby a doddle (she's on 40 count in case your forgot/ didn't know). Love those Madeira scissor sets they are fantastic for exchanges
And all my lovey new charts, the CC are for the Snow Globe
