And the winner is... and blackwork flowers

Greetings to you all on this rather miserable day.

Today is the draw for my lovely Rhodes Butterfly Biscornu and goodies. I've entered all you who took the time to follow me and to leave me a coment. I got my 6 yr old to draw the winner and...

The winner is... HIPPYWITCH!!!

Congratulations to Lori and I've sent you an email. Thank you to you all for entering.
I showed you all the blackwork wall hanging that was done as part of a round robin last summer, well Kayla gave me a chart of another design that complimented the one she had stitched so over the weekend I stitched it and finished off the hanging. I'm so pleased with the overall look. The final design is a Mary Hickmott design from the New Stitches magazine.

Here's the full hanging. It's the only stitched stitched piece in my lounge apart from the bowl of biscornu and is one of my favourite stitched pieces all that I have. Another big thank you to Debbie, Kayla and Laura for stitching on it.

I started stitching one of the pieces for my 2012 challenge, The Japanese bookmark. I only did a tiny bit as I'd had a migraine all day but was feeling very frustrated that I couldn't do any thing. I stopped after about 50 ish stitches when I realised I could barely read the chart. I've got an idea for a family biscornu so I'm going to spend sometime designing the layout for that.

Thanks for reading and have a fab week everyone. xx
