I WON!!!!!!!.....Something Great!

One of the Facebook groups I belong to recently had a competition. Just post our WIPs for the world to see and be entered into a draw to win a chart from your choice of three design companies:

Well, today I was notified that I'd won, and the design above is what I chose.
This is Apocalypse Princesses, from original art by Tess Fowler.

I've had my eye on this design for quite some time and to get it as a freebie is an absolute joy!

I've only ever won 3 things in my life.
A cuddly fish for writing a logo for toothpaste (I was kid! And, no, I can't remember the logo OR the toothpaste!).
A cross stitch kit - through a magazine (that was 'White Magic' who will be appearing shortly on my 'Previous Projects, Part 3' post).

....and now this!

I would like to thank the Administrators of the Crazy About Cross Stitch group on Facebook.
Tess Fowler for creating such a brilliant design in the first place.
And, the amazing Sarah Paine for doing such a brilliant job converting it to cross stitch.

Imagine me doing a courteous bow a la Mr. Darcy and you will see my gratitude!


  1. Congratulations! Esther is the greatest. I love your choice, this one is one of my faves!

  2. I'm so glad you got what you wanted Neil!! And thank you for your compliment, Kathy. :)

  3. Great choice of pattern! :)

    1. I agree Margie! Sarah has a lot of amazing designs on her site, but this one has always been in my mind. My partner isn't a fan (sorry Sarah) but, I finally didn't care! :-)
