We started off our little holiday in the UK in Ipswich. My boyfriend's family live here and we stayed with them for the week. Ipswich is quite a pretty little port town, and we spent most of our time just wandering about, or drinking tea and talking.
There's usually a little market in the town, and one day we went in to find a stall selling back issues of magazines for £1 each. I was very lucky to find three cross stitching magazines.
That's Cross Stitch Crazy, Cross Stitch Gold and Cross Stitch Collection. I was very pleased with this find as I'd kept looking in WH Smith and had decided not to buy any magazines as they were too expensive.
We didn't do very much else, other than visit all the local charity shops, unfortunately we didn't find anything there.
In Part 2, I'll have some photos from Bonfire Night, and Birmingham, as well as the lovely craft-related early Christmas present my mum bought me.
