I received a package completely out of the blue containing a piece of beige Aida. I thought it was strange as I already have a large quantity of this and was worried that I had placed an order by mistake.
It wasn’t until opened it fully that I noticed in the middle was a letter from the magazine that I entered the Queen’s Birthday bunting competition with.
It was thanking me for my entry and hard work in researching the project and asking if I have any other designs as they would be interested in seeing some photos.
It was a big shock and I was really pleased. As it was only my first time in designing something from scratch I don’t have anything else completely new, but on my walk this week I did come up with a few ideas for when I clear all my current projects.
It has filled me with more confidence that maybe I do know what I am doing and more determination to figure out how to use cross stitch software to make my life a little easier!
