Tea....and an award nomination!
More tea....this time peppermint tea!
These blocks are stitching up so quickly....I can't believe how much I'm able to get done each week.
I did change some of the lettering on this one.....I just hope that the designer Krista Hamrick doesn't mind. I altered the letter 'p' so that they were both the same....she had each one slightly different and my OCD just kicked in :) It's not a huge difference and I'm happy with it, which I guess is what it's all about!
So, on to the surprising news! This little blog of mine has been nominated in the British Craft Awards for the category of Best Cross Stitch Blog.....wow!
I'm thrilled and humbled that of all of the wonderful stitchy blogs in blog land that my little blog has even been noticed! So, if any of you dear readers would like to vote for me, please click here. You can vote from anywhere in the world. Please click on the Cross Stitch category and there are a couple of other questions to answer (all about cross stitching) and will take literally less than a couple of minutes of your time. It would mean the world to me if you could do this. Please do check out the other nominated blogs.....they are all fantastic!
And some other good news.....look what arrived from Lion Brand.....
The replacement yarn! So not only did they replace the six balls that I had originally purchased, but they added another ball just to make sure that I had enough yarn of the same colour batch to complete the project! How awesome is that? So another big shout out to the customer service team at lion Brand....especially Ben who co-ordinated it all for me....Ben you are wonderful!
