Christmas cards & Pokémon cards

I finally finished my second Christmas card stitch.

It took me a while because my second week at work was very tough, not really work-wise, but just the travelling and getting up early was making me very tired.

I've been spending some of my hard earned cash. I bought some stitching supplies, I finally got the threads for the Autumn Fab Fob. I also got a Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet, I hope that this will help with my pattern making.

It is so much fun to play with and I can't wait to have some time to use it properly.

My boyfriend and I went on our weekly trip to the comic book shop on Friday evening and I came across these:

If you don't know what they are, well, they are Pokémon trading card decks, and about 10 years old. Two of the decks are actually still sealed. I've still got four more decks waiting for me at the comic book shop. I was so excited when I saw these.

Work is going well, we've finished the training now, and we'll be starting taking calls on Monday.

I hope I'll be able to update more in the future.


  1. OMG Pokemon Cards!!!! LOL cute orny too :) hope you don't mind but I followed your colour changes on the Noel stitch and you're right it looks so much better than in just one colour!

  2. I've still got my Pokemon cards :) Not sure about the boxes though.
    Love your cute Christmas stitching and glad to hear your job is going well. Best wishes.

  3. Cute Christmas card!! That tablet looks pretty cool and it'll be neat to see what you design!!

  4. Congrats on your 2nd series finish! I really wasn't keen on the chickens when I first saw them, LOL, but they look so cute in your finish :) Something about your pretty red and green colourway I guess! Lovely work, as usual. Glad that you've finally got your tablet. I've been wanting one for a while too. You'll have to write a review for the rest of us once you get a chance to play around with it a bit ;)

    Hope work will settle down soon, and that you'll soon have some more free time coming your way!
