Cross stitch embroidery

I've just had a cross stitch embroidery framed that has been languishing in the back of the wardrobe, unfinished for at least 5 years  

I had a sudden urge to finish it and realised that there was literally only 30 minutes work left to do on it.

It's been framed (for an extrotinate price) and I'll take a photo and let you see it.

I'm back in the mood for x-stitch now and have got 3 different ones lined up to do.......just got to fit them in with everything else........eldest son has been home this weekend and has asked me to knit a pair of pure Merino wool socks for him (and I did happen to buy lots of sock wool a few weeks ago for bright socks )

If anyone is needing dmc threads for cross stitching let me know,  we have 1000s from when we closed down the shop and are flogging them off cheap, we have some peices of adia in different counts and colours as well as a couple of bolts of,  I think,  18 count and 14 count white we can cut lengths off...
must find my cross stitch and see if I can finishe it...
only been on the go for 14 years....

Sorry,  missed the post.
We are looking at 25p a skein of original dmc stranded cotton to x stitch.
Ours I'd all old stock,  10 years plus so there are some discontinued colours in there and the have been stored in dry dark conditions,  packed flat in boxes so shoukd all be in good condition.
Coloured and sized aida  pieces I would have to check on so if you have any specifics let me knkw and I will find the box.

Pilsbury, you don't have any coton a broder in among your threads do you?

Kaz, that's really full of movement, isn't it ? Lovely picture to have finished Heavens though, it must have taken ages with all those blues/whites/fawns.

Pilsbury
