My letter in Cross Stitch Crazy

Got my copy of Cross Stitch Crazy today (issue 149). And my letter and picture of GD's birth sampler are in it!
It's not a brilliant picture of the mag, but you can see the sampler and the letter is above it. Have to scan it and keep a copy of it for when I do her scrapbook for her first birthday.

It's been cold and very wet here today, so tomorrow I think it's curl up and stitch time!

My Prize

Remember I mentioned all the goodies which were coming my way from Crafty Devils competition?
Well they arrived - here's a snap of it all laid out on my sewing table. There's Country Companions, Cupcakes, birds, and loads of co-ordinating papers, buttons, flowers, stamps & ribbons.
I've put some to one side to give to my daughter; some into a box for when I make my GD's scrapbook for her first birthday and I've already made 2 cards this afternoon including one for our anniversary next week!
XS might have to wait for a couple of days while I play!

A GREAT week this time!

Hi all
On Thursday this week I heard that I've won £120 of DoCrafts goodies in a prize draw. They were posted out yesterday, so when they get here I'll post a picture of them all.
Then on Friday I had a phone call from QVC. I've had an on-going battle/discussion about my Slice die-cutter which is 18months old and had developed a fault with the card reader. When I contacted Making Memories (the manufacturer) they told me I'd have to pack it up, send it to US and pay for them to investigate if there was a fault before they'd tell me if it could be repaired. As it was out of their warranty I was prepared for it in some way, but wasn't too keen on the costs involved in shipping it to the US but they didn't have a way to investigate the problem here in the UK! When I contacted QVC, they contacted their distributor, and QVC have agreed not only that they will take it up with Making Memories, but they are sending me a BRAND NEW machine (complete with a hands free kit) at the original price!
Maybe I should go out an buy a lottery ticket today too!
My egyptian piece is coming on; I've been working on it slowly this week.
And then I finished this cute topper for a card - my first 2011 finish!

Hope everyone else has a good week
