Look what I've got!

Sorry no stitching to report as yet , well , not my own anyway lol.
Yesterday was the first ever fund raising event for the charity group I belong to . Stitch for Pleasure , Stitch for Charity (link on sidebar).
We went along , and had a great afternoon. I got more stash(like I really need it lol) , charts ,a couple of kits , mags and some other bits and bobs. My kids came home with lots of goodies too.
The highlight of the day was my lovely hubby winning first prize in the raffle , and then handing it over to me. I was absolutely stunned(still am) as I really really loved it and wanted it but never dreamed I would end up with it.
"We" won an afghan , designed by Lucie Heaton(and signed by her) that was stitched as a model for the magazine when the chart was published , and it's absolutely beautiful. I am so lucky to own this.
That's us with it at the prize drawThis is a picture of it laid out on our bed , just because I have to keep looking at it.And some close ups of a couple of my favourite designs , though it is all stunning and so well stitched.All I can say is WOW!
