More great replies! Thank you all.
I have looked at the Stencil Co. Awesome stencils there (my poor budget lol) Thanks for the link Holice.
Shyleigh, no public libraries for miles, so that is not an option unfortunately.
Feline Fanatic, many thanks for the recommendation for that book. I have added it (and a few others!) to my Amazon wishlist.
Squirrelfood, Lovely stuff at Keepsake, thanks for pointing me in that direction
