I have been published and Lee's beautiful giveaway has arrived!

Hi everyone, thankyou for all of your lovely comments on my recent giveaway, it seems that you like my felt brooches! I have tried to reply to all comments but some emails are set as 'no reply' which makes it difficult, but just to let you all know I really appreciate your comments. Welcome to all of my new followers!

I have some exciting news, I have been published in The World Of Cross Stitching Magazine for the first time, I was so excited when my monthly magazine dropped through the letterbox! I have known for quite a few months but I wanted to keep it secret until I was published. I am quite shy at showing my photograph but the magazine preferred me to publish a photo of me, so for the first time you all get to know what I  look like, lol!!!!!
They have shown photos of some of my recent creations and they very kindly published my blog addresses.

Here is the front cover
and here is the article I contributed to: 
The Do's and Dont's of cross stitch. 
That's me on the right!

My sister nearly fainted when she saw a photo of me in the magazine, she thought I would not be able to keep it to myself, but this proved I could! lol I did not tell my Mother or my sister as  I wanted to surprise them!

Another exciting gift arrived in the post, it was Lee's giveaway, and oh my did this take my breath away, Lee is one very talented lady, thankyou Lee I love it, and I am sure everyone who see's the photo's will too!
These will be treasured always.

Check out Lees blog at 
Notes From Under the Mountain Blog here  

Beautiful notebook, embroidered bag, beautifully beaded pomegranate and
embroidered heart!



A close up for the detail!



Told you all it was worth the wait!

A cute pin cushion

I attached a swarovski crystal bead
and a sweet 'made with love' tag on the reverse 

I am also planning another giveaway which will be posted within a few days of announcing the winner of this one, so there is still another chance to be a winner soon!


Thankyou for your comments and happy stitching!

Oh well done Lynn I am so pleased for you, your stitching projects are so nice I am not surprised you are now showing in this stitching magazine. I sometimes buy this one so I will make sure I do grab a copy to see you.
I have followed your blog for so long now, and I have been stitching more myself now as you have inspired me. I am thinking of stopping my knitting to concentrate more on sewing.
Anyway well done, I have entered your giveaway thank you for that.
I am off on my hols next week so will catch up with you when i get back.
best wishes Julie.C
