I'm a Winner!

One of the nicest feelings you can get after a shitty day, is a phone call, text message, email or the like from a friend.  Even just a little "Hi.  How you going?  Thinking of you." is enough to start seeing a little sunshine peeking through the clouds.  So, imagine my joy when I awoke at 3am (ugh!) and had an email from the lovely Lucy (yay!).  What a nice surprise.  Thanks chicky.

But then it got even better as she was also writing to let me know that I'd won her latest giveaway - a free embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching.  Yippeeeee!

I have been meaning to start a new embroidery project for a few weeks now so this might just be the kick-start I need.  I mean, I haven't done any stitching since finishing this owl waaaaay back in January.  Shocking!

Of course, before I could get started, I had to first choice a pattern but - Oh. My. Gosh. -  with sooo many lovely designs they sure do make it difficult!

There's these gorgeous critters...

Or how about a little bit of caravan love...

Or maybe you'd prefer this cheeky guy...

In the end, though, I had to go with my original choice...

I just can't get over that little minx.  Makes me giggle every time.  I just can't wait to get started on her.

Thanks to Lucy for a fabulous giveaway and to Sublime Stitching for the gorgeous designs!



  1. woo hoo!!! Congratulations and you picked a great one :) Happy stitching!

  2. Oh good! I'm so glad you won this so I can see more awesome embroidery. And, I would've picked the fairy too!

  3. See these people that skid in under the wire and win, I don't know... ;o)

    Looking forward to seeing these all sewn up!

  4. Congratulations! What a cool pattern to go with! =D
