5 minutes of Fame..

 
It was with great surprise I received an email last month from the lovely
Fiona Smith, Production Editor for the World of Cross Stitching magazine.
 
Fiona announced my little blog would be featured in their next issue
and needed me to write a few lines about myself.
 
Here it is, issue 215
Blogger of the Month!!!



I've been waiting impatiently for the new issue to come out
& now I have my copy!
- insert Cheshire Cat like grin on my face -

I'm so happy!!

Happy Stitching!
Mii

  47. Congratulations! They have been doing this for a while now (mine was just over a year ago now) but usually they surprise the person who has no idea they have been chosen. They also don't tend to read the blog very carefully and have said some inaccurate things so maybe this is why they have changed to contacting the person first?
    Last month they completely misunderstood the WIPocalypse SAL!

    Enjoy your moment of fame, it is well-deserved :-)

    1. Thank you Jo! I had no info about me showing on the blog, so maybe this is why they've emailed me... I know this has been going on for a little while but as I don't always buy the magazine, I apologise, I wasn't aware you was a lucky one too!! :) Saying this, they asked for some info but haven't use it really.... Oops & yes I'm taking part in the Egg Change because... I've organised it!! :D Yep, not too accurate but I forgive them, after all it was nice of them to feature Mii Stitch!! Have a lovely day x
