Celebrating 400 Giveaway

Saturday, August 6, 2011
I am so encouraged to know that there are people out there in blogosphere who actually like to read the bits and pieces I talk about on my blog!  I am amazed that I now have 400 followers, so of course there has to be a Giveaway.  I have gathered together a few bits and pieces for a prize:

"My Sewing Room" wall hanging.

A selection of 14 fabrics in 10 inch squares:

and a pretty mug bag:

(Accessories not included)

The rules are simple - no jumping through hoops, no hanging from the ceiling, no walking the tightrope - 

 If you are a follower of my blog, (or become one this week), then leave a comment at the end of this post if you wish to enter the giveaway.

Giveaway closes midday Saturday 13 August (Eastern Australia time).  Please ensure I am able to contact you if you are a "No Reply blogger".

I made a couple of things for our daughter's birthday recently:

I won the pattern for this sweet bucket from Joy and of course daughter put her order in for me to make one for her!

Then I've still been in the crocheting mode so I whipped up a little bag for her:

Daughter has also put her order in for covers for all her kitchen appliances - food processor, breadmaker, popcorn machine, coffee grinder, toaster etc. I've made a start - sort of, by drawing up some paper patterns.  Some of the shapes are quite challenging which means the sewing isn't going to be straightforward either!  The things we do for our daughters!!!

Susanne from Denmark very kindly sent me photos of her version of my Fun and Fruity mug rugs.  Aren't they gorgeous?

Thank you for sharing them, Susanne - I especially love those colours! 

I've had a couple more projects in magazines this month, but I'll keep them till next week to share.   Talking of next week, keep an eye out for the next instalment in the Consider the Lilies free BOM pattern ... which means I'd better get my skates on and get it ready for you!!!

Happy Stitching.
