A lucky win

 I was lucky enough to win a giveaway at Swirlyarts recently, and as she was doing a makers fair relatively close to where we live she said that I could go along and pick my prize if I wanted, which I did, and she was massively generous. She gave me four cards, 2 sets of large envelopes, a notebook, 2 sets of gift tags, 1 set on mini envelopes and 1 set of stickers. I felt really guilty stealing that much from her stall, but she was insistent that it was what I had won, so I fely really lucky as well! She makes the cutest stationery, all of it 'upcycled', so the envelopes are made from snoopy comics and story books, the note book is an underground map, they're just all absolutely gorgeous, I was so excited to win. I'm planning on donating some of it to my step mum to be, because she does more paper craft that I do, and will make better use of it, but it's all so cure that I just had to share on here first.
I also bought this off her, a little chicken, which she describes as perfect as a paper weight or pin cushion, and as Ben's forever complaining at my for using the arm of the sofa as a pin-cushion, I thought that he would be perfect.

I haven't managed as much stitching as I was planning to this weekend, and absolutely none on Winter's Majesty which is my current rotation, I kinda got distracted by my mystery new piece of stitching.

That's such a lovely lot of goodies to win, so clever how she makes things out of old comics and maps.

I think your chicken is lovely!
