A couple of other things I've recently added to my stash:
Those are from Nina's Threads, they are Blue Bunny and Cherry Cola. I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet, I just wanted to have them!
I got these off eBay from Dovestitch. They are samples of painted aida, and again, I don't know what I'm going to do with them.
I've had my tablet for a few weeks now. I haven't had much chance to play with it yet, but it feels good so far. It has a nice and quite natural feel to it when drawing, though it does take a bit of getting used to. The only bad thing about it is the position of the button on the pen that allows you to right-click, I usually end up accidentally holding down while drawing. I think for a beginners tablet it is a good buy as well, it cost me just under 60Euros.
Well, that's all for now. I hope my next update won't be so long from this one as this one was from the previous. In the new year my boyfriend and I will be moving into our own flat (closer to work), so I hope to have more time for cross stitching then.
