  3. Congratulations!!!!! I love that Turtle design and mentioned that to you several posts ago, no wonder it was chosen for the book as it was a beaut!

  7. Good Afternoon Rose, Firstly, let me say congratulations to you for having your work featured in the Sweet Living Magazine. What a thrill it must be for you.
    Your punch needle embroidery is so beautiful and the colours are gorgeous. It was hard to choose a favourite name for a colour as they were such lovely names. It was between Cinnamon Twirl and Nostalgic Rose, but I plumped for Nostalgic Rose, as roses are my favourite flower.
    I popped over to take a look at the Sweet Living Magazine and it was so very interesting, I loved how the cameo cupcakes were created and the hydrangea cupcakes were just too lovely to eat. It is a very inspirational magazine.
    Enjoy your Sunday.
    Best Wishes
