I've been so good in resisting temptation this last week!
First, there were the new Heaven and Earth Designs charts. But Fudgey came to my rescue by gifting me Pisces - the one that really would have broken my resolution.
Then Martina from Chatelaine Designs announced a forthcoming design - the Stitching Leporello Book. That was OK. Pretty, but not a 'must have'. Until I went to Judy Odell's site and saw another book in the series! It's not for sale yet though so I can't get it even if I wanted to.
(For those who asked - I don't know if it has a name yet, but it's by Elizabeth Talledo/Fingerwork and Elegant Stitch will be stocking it!)
Then a lovely new Mirabilia came to my attention....
And yesterday - the worst of the lot - I went to my LNS (The Embroiderer in Birkenhead for any Kiwi locals) and I was having a lovely chat with one of the ladies (they're so nice in there), and she told me they'd started stocking Rouge du Rhin! She even fished out a couple of the alphabet books that are on my wishlist to show me!! AND, then she showed me all the books by Valerie Lejeune!
I was really, really good! I came away with two threads and a gift for my adopted stitcher. Talk about temptation though....
