My first surprise was an e-mail from Yiota asking if I would review one of her kits. I was surprised and honored to be asked and of course spent the next few hours browsing her website http://www.yiotas-xstitch.com/ trying to decide which one of her lovely kits to choose. I finally decided on this one.
Then when I got in from work tonight I had received my copy of Cross Stitcher Magazine in the post and I have had a letter printed with a photo of the poppy brooch which I stitched for my sister.
To top it all off it was the letter of the month and I've won a bunch of flowers!
