Today I spent a day at an agricultural show with my daughter and grandchildren. It is annual show not far from us and it is nice to take the children to see various farm animals.
When I returned home, tired, after a long and hot day, I found a parcel from a fellow blogger. Some time ago she won this beautiful book in a competition on Country Bumpkin site, http://countrybumpkin.com.au/. Due to some error, she ended up with two books. So, being a very generous person, she decided to run her own competition on her blog, http://kiwidutch.wordpress.com/, via Country Bumpkin Forum, with an agreement of Country Bumpkin. I am not normally a person who wins anything, but I entered anyway and to my huge surprise, I won!
So, I am now a proud owner of this beautiful book, signed by the author Susan O'Connor. Not only is this book full of beautiful embroidery, but there is also an interesting historical background at the start of the book. It is a book to treasure.
Thank you, Kiwidutch, for your kindness and generosity, and thank you Country Bumpkin for publishing such a beautiful book. And of course,
I am grateful to Susan O'Connor, for writing the book on the first place.
