I was lucky enough to win a prize in the virtual Masquerade Ball held by author Prue Batten at the beginning of the month… and it arrived today:
I’ve tried to take a close-up photo so you can see how careful and dainty the stitches are, but the picture (unfortunately blurry) really doesn’t do Prue’s stitching justice:
And those berries are all 3-D and wonderful – they’re lovely!
I’m carefully examining Prue’s stitching so I can improve my own.
Thank you, Prue – what a wonderful prize. Now I just need to find a special use for it …
(Do go and read Prue’s blog – there’s a very interesting conversation going on there about the current direction of the publishing industry and, like yours truly, she’s a stitcher as well as a writer with a great imagination.)
