What makes the world go round?


For my blogaversary in April, I had the chance to give back to this wonderful blogging community of ours and offered a giveaway. Two months later (gosh, I'm terrible!), the winner Karoline received her goodies. I'm pleased to say Karoline loved what I sent, which is always the aim :)
Here's what was in the giveaway parcel . . .

I stitched up CCN's The Tea Room and finished it into a pin pillow. That's what took me so long to get the parcel out, I'm rather slow at finishing things.

Appropriate backing fabric I'm sure you'll agree!

Here's what the whole parcel contained . . .

I would love to do more giveaways. But next time, I'm going to FINISH the intended prize before I offer it away :P

And kindness was returned in my direction when Sadie from Stitching Up a Storm offered to send me the chart for a design I'd been admiring on her blog. I'm such a lucky Lion! I cannot wait to stitch up LHN's Moons and Stars - thank you so much Sadie!

Extra shifts at work have been keeping me busy, but I'm finding plenty of time to stitch. I'm hoping to get a couple more finishes ticked off my list on my day off on Tuesday. 
Back with a stitching update soon!
Best wishes,
