After a couple of weeks of things going wrong, something wonderful happened! I was the winner of the HAED chart from Pull The Other Thread blog giveaway! Woohoo!
I'm not one of these people who can say 'I never win anything' as I did once win something. When I was about sixteen or seventeen (many moons ago!!) I won a T-shirt and I was sooo excited about having won something, but as I got handed the t-shirt there was also an apology of 'sorry we didn't have any small t-shirts left but here's an extra large one!' It turned out to be an XXL size - totally useless and I was so disappointed.
But there's absolutely no disappointment this time! The very generous prize was to pick my own chart - so you can guess how I spent my weekend! Yes, I was glued to the computer trying to decide which Heaven and Earth chart to pick - no easy task, I can assure you.
I finally decided on this one...
Isn't it delightful? I just love these little dragons and this design reminds me of my children when they were younger and used to play make believe. (Now they just fight and argue!!!)
I have to say the service from Michele at Heaven and Earth Designs is second to none. I cannot praise her highly enough. I had a problem downloading the charts (all my fault!) and contacted her explaining what had happened and she responded almost immediately. You may not think that this is anything exceptional, but you have to realize that this was on Sunday afternoon! What great service. The chart is now safely downloaded and saved to my desktop.
Now I'm trying to gather all the threads and fabric that I will need to stitch this design....more fun!
I've also got my eye on another couple of Heaven and Earth designs (naughty me, as I've just started a new piece! More of that later). So be warned...browsing this site can be addictive and add greatly to you wish list!
Anyhoo, this is what I'd love to stitch
and if I live long enough, this one as a companion piece...
...although I've no idea where I would get fabric big enough to tackle these designs...or how I could afford the fabric and the threads! I'd better start doing the lottery!
So once more a big thank you for my prize from Pull The Other Thread blog and also Michele at HAED. I'm one happy bunny!!
Until next time...happy stitching!
