Every now and then I make a pass through our local thrift store. They rarely have a lot in the way of craft supplies, but every so often I get lucky...and even if I don't, I can usually grab a new pair of pants or a top for my ever-growing offspring. But this weekend I found these!!
embroidery hoop boxes (the instructions are for 6" hoops, but the process should be the same). And the magazine is an old issue of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts - I had the issue with the first part of this series, and now I just need to find the last one. (I may never stitch the whole series, but my crafter's OCD means that I have to HAVE the whole set.) And I got everything for under $2!
