Think im moving and I dont stitch much anymore and i wondered whether anyone wanted these.
They are heavy, so id say about £10 to post but HOURS of browsing and stitching.
The world of cross stitching, quick cross stitch etc. Some with kits attached. If anyones interested I will see how much the exact postage will be.

I wonder what my brother does. He sells books on ebay and must have to send lots of heavy parcels.

If it comes down to it I will drive over and collect them and pretend it's a day out for the kids

I sell stuff on ebay and use RM. Ive never posted anything quite this heavy though. You can come to my new house and help me decorate

so nearish a tenner for post...I think.

anorak Sun 06-Mar-05 11:35:16

Lol, am supposed to be DIYing my own house but prefer to skive on mn instead!

If you could find out a rough figure for the postage, I'll figure out what would be the best plan from there.

Thanks x

anorak Sun 06-Mar-05 11:36:15

Ah posts crossed. A tenner sounds fine. Even if it works out more then it's well worth it for so many mags. I love getting new cross-stitch mags. (Beginning to see why I am called anorak are you ? )

charliecat Sun 06-Mar-05 11:36:51

I am looking forward to a fresh start, the decorating in this house is ok if you stand still...but theres no flow...its like walking into an explosion. The folks on how not to decorate the other night, Thats us. We will be doing neutral(pah!) next time!

anorak Sun 06-Mar-05 11:37:06

I'll send you a CAT, shall I?

charliecat Sun 06-Mar-05 11:37:16
