Give-away Winner & Stitching!

Thank you to everyone who has joined in my give-away. Joey giraffe was very excited to help choose the winner.


Pretty colours, who will win shaking the jar is so much fun!



Who will win, who will it be, hurry up I want to see!



Michelle, Michelle, Michelle it;s YOU, can I come in your package too!



It;s just not fair, Lainey says no,she;s not going to let me go!



I tried my best but it;s not to be, so I guess it;s now good-bye from me!

Congratulations Michelle I will  mail out your package later this week. I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to leave a comment on my ramblings. I have selected the 5 top people who regularly leave me a comment and a little thank-you package will be going to the winner. I want this to be a surprise so I will announce who it is when they receive the package.


This is my SAL piece for September. Just need to add a button and then it will be added to my finishing pile. I;ve got so many now and it takes me so long to make them up into an ornament, pillow, cube etc I;ll need a few weeks off work to get them done. I;ve also got side-tracked again and should be stitching another autumn piece but I;ve started another Halloween one. I really need a kick in the butt..lol.


I read this book on my break last week-end. It took me a few chapters to get into it but after that I couldn;t put it down. A good thriller with a twist in the tale. Rachel Lupton is a new author who I will definately be adding to my book list.

Well once again my week-end is nearly over and I haven;t done a great deal of stitching. I've got lots of housework and paperwork I need to catch up on this week but I must make some stitchy time or I will go insane..lol.
Happy Stitches everyone. Hugs!

Congratulations to Michelle! I know just what you mean about stitching keeping you sane--I haven't had much time at all over the past month and I'm really feeling like I'm going through stitching withdrawal or something!
