the poll for this year’s blogaversary challenge has just been closed and the results are in!
by one vote only, the stitch enigma has officially won!! – win win, cause this means I’ll have to start something new pretty soon! WOOHOO!! 😀
I know it was part of my New Year’s resolutions not to start anything for a while, and I’ve been behaving for 3 entire months now – but if you’re asking me to do this, I guess I’ll have to sacrifice my good records for a good cause*. 😉
I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote and add suggestions for the blogaversary challenge, now I can’t wait for it to start and have fun together! 🙂
I’ll be busy preparing all the clues for this enigma, and I also have last year’s piece that I want to see finished before embarking on this new adventure, so I don’t think we’ll start before the official blogaversary date, May 3rd.
on the other hand I’m super excited about it, I’ve already chosen the secret project, scribbled down a few things.. it’ll be really hard to resist another whole month! 😀
I’ll write down everything you need to know to play the game, this way the rules, dates and prizes are clear from the beginning – and don’t forget that by sharing the news through social media you’ll get the chance to win an EXTRA PRIZE, so feel free to reblog, press, share, post, tweet, whatever the following icon and a link to this blog. 🙂

meanwhile, I’ve been busy working on an older project that is coming along really well and surprisingly quickly: Lizzie Kate‘s Halloween Mystery Sampler Club from 2012, Very Scary.
I’m working on the called for Weeks Dye Works linen, Tin Roof, in 35ct. using the silk selection made by the lovely gals at The Attic Needlework. I didn’t feel too smart about this at that time, cause I already had the entire sampler kitted up with the called for WDW, but I simply fell in love with these silks and now I couldn’t be happier I spent that extra money on them.
of course I learnt the lesson and now rarely get kitted up mysteries, as I’d rather pick my own colour choices and generally stitch from stash.
I found that with all the border done first, I managed to work on the three inner sections really quickly, here’s an update on part 3.
I plan to have this finished during the weekend, so I better get going! 🙂
