I've finished the stitching of the rainbow butterfly and I think it looks lovely. I'll make it into a bag and then post a photo for you.
But the best news is that I got an email this morning saying World of Cross Stitch would like to publish one of my designs in their April edition next year. I have the contracts and everything, unlike last time when it fell through (with a different editor). So I'm very pleased to finally get a break through there. And I'm sure that is the kick I need to get more cross stitch designs under way (I've been fiddling with textile art for an art show in November over the last day or two).
Just wanted to share that lovely news with you
