a little lucky and a lot happy :)

Normally February is a boring and depressing month for me,
bored of the grey skies and the cold and rain,
just getting desperate for spring to come
i got a lovely little boost to start the month :)

my cotton reel button stamp was featured
in this beautiful French magazine

there are loads of lovely things in it
{i'm on page 90}


i also got lucky when i entered a few of my cross stitch designs
in a competition over at Cut Out + Keep
{if you don't know this site do check it out - it has hundreds of crafty tutorials}

my "how to frame an embroidery in the hoop" tutorial
won me two Cath Kidston craft books
how exciting eh?
i'm looking forward to them arriving
and having a good read!


now i just need to crack on with my Tim Burton Swap
someone give me a kick up the butt!

You're too wickedly good at crafting! Your swap partner ought to know that her wait will be worth it! :)

wow . so fantastic. But that's because you are fantastic! You are so wonderfully talented and a fabulous 'pretend' friend too. I can't wait to see what you make next!
