Today-some great news.

In Stitch magazine at the end of last year, they published details of a competition in conjunction with Madeira threads 'Glimpses of Childhood'.  As I was working at the time on my piece for Art Van Go, I wasn't sure if I would have time to make something to enter.  Anyway, to cut a long story short, I managed to get my piece made and sent off in time. 
My memory of my childhood, is long hot sunny summer days, sitting in my wigwam making daisy chains.


I was so surprised when I got this letter in the post this morning saying I had won a prize.  My daisy chain wont be coming home until next March.
Tomorrow, I am looking after my youngest Grandson. I am picking him up from Playgroup, weather permitting a picnic in the graden and then we shall make some cakes.
