Blog Fairy

Well.... as you can see I visited the Blog fairy and used one of the fabulous free templates to jazz up the old blog a little.... I like it.... ok, so it's really the dummy's guide to redecoration, but quite frankly, when it comes to computers, that's about the extent of my capabilities.

Do let me know if you find it obscenely difficult to read wont you??

If you check out 30 Days, you will see that Mique has a fantastic blog makeover giveaway going on... so if you fancy a makeover, and you are more on the ball than me.... why not enter... you never know, you might just be the new author of the trendiest blog in blogland.

So.... I have no pics of the mans jumper... which isnt finished...though it almost is. Other than that preparations are insane and we are about to move house....tomoro.... oh and did I mention that we are hosting christmas for 20 people.... yes... I think we might be mad afterall.

Wish us luck... and lots of good cheer!

Wednesday Winner

Wow.... I was overwhelmed to see so many people visit my blog. I hope that you all had a little look, I have checked out so many new blogs over the last week and really had a lot of fun.

I randomly selected a winner from the 230 comments.... it's Beth...

Beautiful fabric choice, I have a SIL who knits every where she goes, and this would be great for her needles.

I'm sorry I can only give it away to one person (there's only one roll) however, because of the response, I thought I would put a tutorial up over the next week or so, and then you have some help to give it a go yourself, so keep an eye out for it ! .....I had better go and email Beth.

Hopefully I'll see more of some of you.

Handmade Giveaway

Well, here it is, my giveaway for 3rd of December.

It's a needle roll made of canvas. The floral fabric is vintage fabric and the interiors are thick contrasting canvas

It's going to be able to hold needles, pencils, brushes or other notions of your choice. Here's a look at the inside.... with my needles and hooks to show you how what it holds
Once you get the needles in... flip the flap....

...Roll it up...

....And away you go....

To win the needle roll isn't hard, just leave a comment, take a look at my shop if you like or browse around the blog and leave me a message with your email or blog URL or some way of contacting you if you win.

I'll draw the winner on Wednesday the 10th of've got almost a week...

And dont forget to check out the Sew Mama Sew giveaway List!

There are jumpers and there are jumpers

Hmmm... well... just a short post.... not yet the giveaway post... I thought I should clear something up. You see I'm making a jumper for my husband.... To me, 'Jumper' conjours images such as this...

Not my pic (or my hubby in fact) but you get the idea.... rugged, manly and so on. However, as a good friend pointed out (with a giggle) this is what the word 'Jumper' conjours up for her....

As you can see there's rather a significant difference there...

A quickie

Well... I've been busy, the hubby's jumper is close to finished (pics to follow eventually) and I made a couple of purses for the shop and a pencil case (with terrible pics).

The Sew mama sew giveaway is on tomoro (check out the button on the side ---->) and I am taking part, so feel free to take a look at what is on offer tomorrow.

Sorry about the dreadfully dull post... see you tomorrow.
