First Prize and Pearl Pouch finish

It has been so long since I last wrote an entry for my blog. Time just flies by ....
I have some good news to share with you...., please may I brag, just a little?
I have been away for a few days. 

Our Women's Agricultural Union held their annual Area Conference the other day, and I am excited to tell you that the Poppie lampshade has been judged on County level and that it won "First Prize".
I still cant believe it. It will now go on to Provincial Level where it will be judged again in May. 

During the Conference we stayed in a lovely lodge with tented accommodation. The tents had all the amenities, including an outside shower. (What a lot of fun) A whole bunch of ladies from our Chapter went and we had a ball of a time. Lots of laughter, good food, wine and friendship. It was a perfect stay.

On the stitching front I have a finish to show you :)

This is my version of the "Lacy Pearl Pouch"
Design by : Chameleon Threads
Pattern: Lacy Pearl Pouch 
by Via Laurie

It is worked in Hardanger on 28ct linen using Via Laurie's space dyed threads.

The pouch is made with dupion silk fringed with lace.

I added some Antique seed beads......

and made up a charm from odds out of my beading stash.

And that's all from me today. I am still working on the Mountmellick embroidery and I have started to knit a Bolero. My surprise X-stitch is still far from finished and I am actually sorry I even mentioned it to you.
 (I feel the pressure, hehe)
You'll have to be patient, this week I am going to Johannesburg, (450km one way), to fetch my dear mom from the airport. She is coming to stay with us for 2 months. I am very happy!!!!!

I live in KZN and was wondering if you do postal orders? And what type of stock do u carry eg what threads and fabrics, beads. Or do you have a website concerning your shop.

Thank You
