A Tick (or two) Off the Wish List

Yes I have a long wish list of things I'd like to do, and I've been able to tick two or three off the list on this trip.  So guess where I've been today -
The Home Patch - Anni Downs' amazing shop full of lots of yumminess and nooks and crannies with little treasures everywhere.
Even got to meet and chat with Anni - not a very flattering photo of me on the right.
Now of course I made a purchase or two - some lovely background stitching fabric top right, a beautiful piece of green hand dyed wool (perfect for xmas) and pattern No 2 of the little xmas ornaments I made for last month's "1 Christmas Item a Month"
And of course there was more (as you knew there would be). Another little snowman for my growing collection, a cute little reel of red/white string and a kit for one of the projects out of Anni's book "A Christmas Story" which has been on my "to do" list. 

I've also been to a couple of other gorgeous shops "The Stitching Post" and Rick Rutherford's Country store (or Christmas store it should be at the moment),so will be back with show and tell from them soon. Cheryl
