From a car boot sale a couple of weeks ago I bought a big envelope full of beautifully neat cross stitch pictures. The seller was one of those house clearance bods with boxes full of all sorts. I paid £2 for the lot and when I got home and had a proper look in the envelope I found 17 little pictures - mostly Christmassy - right ready for putting in cards.
I've got plenty of card blanks so did some straight away - those on the right - and just need to iron the rest and get them mounted.
But then what?
Can I really pass them off as my own? There's hours and hours (and Hours) of work there and I wouldn't ever choose to stitch penguins and polar bears they are not 'me'.
So I thought I'd donate them to a charity but............ most of the chain charity shops sell their own Christmas cards anyway and I'm not sure these would be put out for sale.
So I'm still puzzling over what to do with them, maybe the Macmillan Cancer Information Centre at the hospital could sell them for fundraising - I shall ask but they might not be allowed to.
I'll let you know.
And thank you for most of the comments yesterday!
