I`m such a winner!

Look what postie`s brought yesterday!


I entered the competitions a few weeks ago and I quite forgot about the whole thing. What a lovely surprise!
Yesterday was a stitchy day through and through: after receiving this kit, I got an email from Twilleys of Stamford (new commission in the post) and with just the odd tea-and-pee break, I stitched for 10 hours non-stop. My deadline for the Cross Stitch Gold cushion is next Wednesday and I`m beginning to have this panicky feeling in my stomach - there`s still quite a lot to do! Sorry, I can`t show you any pictures of it... it`s a shame because it looks gorgeous! And, weirdly, bigger from the computer desk... hmm, maybe I can do this...? OK, back to work!

    1. Thanks, Poppy, I`m chuffed with it too - maybe one day I`ll have the time to stitch it, lol!
      Sad to see you go but it was nice while it lasted :))
      You have a lovely weekend too,
      Big hugs xx

  2. Congratulations Laura! Wonderful kit.
    I can relate to the panicky feeling - get it quite often when working on my orders... Good luck to you, and don't forget to rest. :)

  3. Thanks, Katya - I wish your advice had come earlier, lol! On Thursday I stitched for 10 hours non-stop and I think I might have overdone it - my right wrist feels a bit wonky... Yesterday I bought one of those wrist support thingies but it`s too big so it doesn`t do the job - practically it does as much good as a pair of white gloves (on the upside, I look like Audrey Hepburn when I put it on). Maybe I`ll try to sew along one edge and make it smaller...? Yay, more stitching for me!
