First, thank you and hello to all my new followers. I am so pleased to meet you and quite taken aback that you want to listen to my ramblings, but very pleased as well. I do check out all your blogs if there is a link to do so.
Secondly a very special thank you to Muddy Puddle Crafts for your kind words on your blog and for linking to me. Go have a look at her blog and the lovely things she makes. Her hand painted signs are great.
Finally and by no means least, I was lucky enough to win Vintage Vicki's giveaway, my first, and to say I was amazed when I opened her parcel today is an understatement. I was just expecting my new dolly friend Amy but I also got a whole host of other goodies!
Super cup cake moulds, which I don't have, a Yankee candle, a cupcake coaster, pretty spotty buttons (can't wait to use these), a notebook, some decorative stickers, fabulous postcards ( I must find some frames to do them justice) and a super little floral dish. So many lovely things. thank you Vicki so much.
I am in awe of all the lovely parcels that I have seen and received since I started this blog and so have decided that as soon as I reach 100 followers I will have my own giveaway. I do hope that isn't too long away, but have started to gather and make my little presents anyway. I am thinking of a fairy and toadstool theme. I have already needle felted a tiny toadstool pin cushion and started on a needle case, and I will be scouring my CBs and CS for interesting, hopefully vintage bits and bobs to go with them. I also hand make fairies for the top of the Christmas tree, complete with embroidered wings, floral garlands in their hair and ballet shoes on their feet. I will make one of these and the winner can choose a colour scheme! Pictures of this at a later date.
Not a good photo of the work in progress but it is a bit late.
Anyway hope this stirs some interest and I'll be back to tell you all about Bath very soon
