I won!

Not a brilliant picture but this is my Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler showing off its two first prizes and a cup from the St Clears YFC show. It won 1st in the Cross Stitch - Open class and was also the Best Craftwork Exhibit! Whooppee!

OK, so the St Clears show isn't the largest in the country (or even the county!) but I was born and bred in St Clears so it's my "home" show and I was chuffed to bits to win :-)

Two weeks late

but still within the cut-off date. I hadn't really realised that I'm more than half way through the final part of the sampler. Hopefully my June update will be a photo of the complete design :-)

Where have you gone, stitching mojo?

I've hardly stitched anything in May or even through most of April, sadly. I even forgot to post on WiPocalypse day which I'm really mad about. I have, though finished (and sold today on eBay!) a sudoku card which I'm really pleased with:

Also remembered to take a photo for TUSAL - not much more than last time, obviously, but at least it's growing a little :-)

Hopefully the rest of May (and the rest of the year!) will be a bit more fruitful...
