Lili, I am using design works thread. I think the silver thread is their own too. It is easier to work with than DMC and krenik but it still tends to break apart after a while.
I decided to take a little break from stitching for a few hours yesterday and made a start on a new scrapbook. This one is for my sister. I have decided to make a scrapbook using photo's from our days out together. This is only the first page. I need to wait until I get some photo's back before I make a start on the other. The photo in the corner I have coloured in black as my sister isn't too keen on the idea of her photo on the net. WH Smith have started to sell scrapbook supplies and I couldn't help but pick up some. It might encourage me to continue with my San Francisco scrapbook. My latest problem though is to find a cross stitch design that I can use for the front of my sisters scrapbook. I thought it would be nice to attach a sister or friendship design to the front. However, I haven't come across anything that stands out. The only thing I liked was an AOY design. The problem is that although I like it, it doesn't really fit my sister. The last resort will be a care bear design. I'll just have to keep my eyes open (if anyone has any ideas I would be happy to hear them).
Gill, I have to admit that I am running out of space for all my books. They seem to be taking over the house. I have a box filled with all my hardbacks and my bookcase is doubled up with books. I give the ones I'm not too fond of or know I won't read again to the local charity shop.
Timewarden, thanks for the info on the Ian Marter book. I looked it up on amazon and it looks as though he has written quite a few Dr Who books. This one looks interesting though and I will have to give it a try.
Your scrapbooking looks great! I've never done any of it, but I think there are loads of great ideas to pick in there!
