When I moved to Prince Rupert 3 decades ago (did I just type that?) there was a store called Grand Trunk Hobbies that I frequented A LOT. The couple who owned it, Laura and Dave were lovely people and kept a really wonderful cross stitch section of the store (Laura's hobby). Fast forward 10 years and they are closing shop. Fast forward again to yesterday. I get a call from Laura saying she can't stitch any more because of her eyes and would I be interested in the bits and pieces of cross stitch stuff she has left. I say yes and shortly after they arrive. WELL! This is what the 2 of them call "bits and pieces".
3 binders of cross stitch patterns and a large roll of vinyl weave.
A large tote with towels and cooler cup.
DMC and Bangor thread books.
Hoops, stretcher bars, tubes of fabric and at least 8 full floss boxes, bobbinated and labelled.
Not to mention some charts that hadn't made it into the binders and a few small kits.
I'm still sitting here in shock and with no idea why they would think of me after all this time. Can you yell SPOILED?
