The first package was from Jenni at TapestryMoon . Jenni is a fellow designer who can turn her hand at almost anything! She was giving away some gorgeous fabrics that she had decorated....told you, she can do anything! Here's what I won from Jenni...
...and then she very generously made this one, just for me!
I'm not sure what I'll make with these, but I'm thinking maybe a wall hanging or a cushion....watch this space! Thanks Jenni, I love them.
Second package, which really brightened up a rainy and miserable Monday morning came from Helen at Stitchy Dragon Creates. You really should pop over and see Helen's work....it's amazing, she can do so many different crafts...and all of them brilliantly! Anyway, she was having a giveaway of an issue of Cross Stitch Gold, and these magazines are like gold dust here, so I was delighted to find that I was the winner. Not only did Helen send me the magazine, but she also added some other goodies to the package! Thanks Helen, you are so generous! Here's what was in the package...
I can't wait to get started using those Christmas stamps....if I start now, maybe the weeks leading up to Christmas won't be my usual last minute panic!!!
So you can see why I should have bought a lottery ticket! ;)
I have managed to get some stitching done this week, I almost have 'heilan coo' number 2 completed!
A quick update on The Pink Scarf Project (button link on the side for complete details). The summer update has been posted, and there are some fantastic scarves to see, click here, to go directly to the early summer update. My scarf and card have been photographed and the setting is just gorgeous! Please check out the project and if you can join in too, that would be fantastic! Thank you.
Anyway, I'm off to stick the kettle on for a cuppa while I read my new magazine!
Until next time...happy stitching!
