«Well,» said Pooh, «what I like best,» and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called." A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
October is a time to look forward - Hallowe'en and Christmas are approaching but - before all the hectic rush - there's still time to savour those mellow moments.
For our Needlecrafters ...
Bothy Threads have a lovely new range of kit for the nursery Cotton Zoo. There are eight to collect with two slightly larger and with baby's details to turn them into birth samplers. All are stitched on Zweigart's Petit Point 14 count Aida which comes with all over dots in pink or blue.

We know how much your crafts matter to you and so we are continuing to work for as long as we can.
The delivery services have been inundated with online purchases and this has led to backlogs of international mail ("It's like two Christmasses at once!").
We are of course wholly dependent on the delivery services and the delays are highly variable - some international (non-UK) packages have taken 2 months to arrive and some have arrived in normal time.
So we ask for your continuing patience in waiting for your package to arrive.
Deliveries to almost all countries are continuing but please visit this page and check your country's status.
We hope you are safe and comfortable and able to enjoy your stitching in these difficult times.
