Charity Shop Cross Stitch Rescue

I love looking around the charity shops. At Felixstowe I found six craft magazines for a pound and several books. I like looking for crafty stuff but it isn't always easy to find. I came across this lovely cross stitch at a charity shop in Ipswich and just had to rescue it. The stitches are beautifully done.


As a cross stitcher myself I know just how long this must have taken. Does anyone else pick up crafty goodies out and about?

  1. Yes, I do. I always appreciate the time and effort that has gone into anything crafted like that. Great buy. Also, I am an ex pat living in the US. Hope you are having a great time back in England.

  4. I had to stop going to thrift stores and yard sales because I had too much clutter of my own, but that is a lovely piece of cross-stitch!

  5. I'm more of an discover and appreciate it kind of girl. I have finally stopped bringing more into the house unless it's a gift or resell type of item. I love seeing art in many different forms, though. I love this cross stitch piece.

  6. It is my duty to rescue embroidered tablecloths, pillowcases, etc. I actually use them. I don't resell them.
