#ealwantitwednesday Bothy Threads kits

4:38 AM

Hello lovelies,
First of all a quick reminder to enter our GIVEAWAY HERE to be in with the chance to win THREE fun prizes!!

Aideen here today and welcome to my #ealwantitwednesday post! I recently bought my first ever cross stitch kit from Bothy threads-you can find their website HERE, the Facebook page is HERE and also there is a group page on Facebook where customers can share their lovely pieces.

I have a major soft spot for all things Gorjuss and I don't even know how I came across the cross stitch kits but I must have seen one on one of my random browsing days.... Anyways I just thought wouldn't one of those be pretty all framed and hanging up! So I bought one from Bothy threads and this is the one I am working on, isn't she so pretty?

Gorjuss 'you brought me love...'

As a complete beginner I immediately watched Kate from Bothy threads videos on their YouTube channel HERE. You can also watch them from the website. The videos made it so easy and clear for me as to how to start and finish with a thread-I kinda had an idea of the cross stitch but now it was crystal clear....

I have only been at my piece for a few hours-I am getting a bit quicker every time I go at it but I almost have her dress completed and here is where I am with it now:

Everything in the kit is perfection-the threads are amazing quality and the colour range is extensive to get the exact match to the original Gorjuss artwork. The instructions are easy to manage and the pattern that you work from is great for any level of cross stitcher.

So now that I have started I am loving cross stitch but also and this is my #ealwantitwednesday item, I would love to one day try their Gorjuss tapestry kits! You can make a fabulous Gorjuss cushion... Just look at this one:

Isn't that just so cute-I want one! So maybe when I complete this cross stitch kit, I will invest in one of the tapestry kits and give that a go...

Bothy threads are a lovely company to deal with and when Kate mailed me back when I asked for a catalog to be posted to me, I had to respond and thank her for her videos. 

If you or anyone you know is into cross stitch or tapestry I cannot recommend Bothy threads enough. And of course it's not just Gorjuss products, they have a HUGE range of goodies to suit every crafter,

Do you cross stitch? Let me know in the comments,
