I was so happy when I found the Xu Crafts shop in Taipei! I loved so many of the kits they had, but I decided to try to be good (even though they were all very affordable) and only get a few things.
I bought this Harvest kit because I really loved the Taiwan themes in the design. The Farmers are wearing the traditional Asian straw hat that you still find people wearing in Taiwan who perform landscaping work. I really love the bamboo and all of the adorable fruit in this design. I wish I could start it tomorrow, but I think I might start it for the Crazy January Challenge...
I also bought this iris pouch kit. The flowers are beautiful and I am hoping it will be a quick stitch. I would like to use this to store all of my scissors. I misplaced my beautiful new scissors that I really liked using during the Stitch Maynia madness.
I bought these bookmark kits to make as Christmas gifts. They look like they will stitch up quickly and I am excited about starting these before January :)
I also got these needles and scissors which were all very affordable.
Xu Crafts was in a shopping center that had a very large bookstore. In the bookstore I found this British Cross Stitch Magazine!
I almost bought it just because it was there, but I wasn't sure if there was anything I wanted to stitch in it so I decided to leave it for some other stitcher in Taiwan to find...
I hope you enjoyed seeing the stitching goodies I found locally. Happy Stitching!
