Recently while checking out some cross stitching blogs I came across a really lovely Maia design that I couldn't stop thinking about. It is called "Winter's Majesty" and is based on the artwork of Karl Bang.
The more I thought about it, the more I wanted it - so I started searching online for the design in Australia and didn't get very far. But, I did find it on the "Sew and So" website, and while I know I should be supporting Australian online and local retailers, with the Aussie Dollars being so good, I decided to buy online from the UK. Unfortunately, while I was on the Sew and So website I also found 3 other Oriental style kits that took both my fancy and my hubby's fancy.... Plus they had a very good sale on and a good sale is my one weakness!
I was really pleased (and surprised) that I only had to wait just over a week for the package to come from the UK - not bad!
So now all I have to do is finish my "Bonsai and Buddha" and then I can start "Winter's Majesty".

(this is the one that Mark asked me to order)
Still, what is a cross stitcher without a stash?? I don't think there is any such thing!!!
Until next time,
