No, no it’s not what you’re thinking! Remember my list of abbreviations?

I recently found a wonderful toy, it’s an app for my iPhone it’s called Thread Tracker created by Touch Screen Craft, there are three versions one for DMC (Thread Tracker 117), Anchor(Thread Tracker 4635) and Madeira (Thread Tracker C40). I use 117 and it allowed me to create my own floss inventory that I can maintain and actually make a shopping list that is always with me whenever I find myself in or near a craft store.
I also picked up the latest World of Cross Stitch magazine with lots of Christmas gift ideas and a Joan Elliott chart of Santa in his sleigh full of toys and elves.
I’ve made some progress on the Black and White design but I’m not where I want to be yet so I won’t share right now, so to be able to show some progress photos in my next post I’m off to make some wonderful little xxs.
