So this is my big thank you. I have had so many lovely comments, so much encouragement that if once I doubted my wisdom in doing this blog I certainly don't any more. You may only be internet friends but I have felt some real warmth and reading all your lovely blogs, found some fantastic shops and been inspired by some great projects.
I have always thought how lucky I am, good health, lovely family and a home of my own, but now I feel even more blessed with all the new people I am 'meeting' every day.
So keep it up ladies (and gentlemen) you would be surprised how the smallest cheerful comment can brighten a dull day.
........ and now the little bits on the side.
I am pleased to have joined in a couple of little projects. The first is to make a raffle prize for Caithness Rare Breeds.
Just a couple of my needlecases but embroidered with a sheep theme..
Why don't you pop along there to see all the amazing prizes that have already been donated. I am in awe and will definitely be buying tickets when they release them, hopefully any time now!
I have also joined in with pip at Meet me at Mikes in her decorated envelope giveaway.
What a top idea and lucky the person who eventually receives what now appears to be a mountain of stuff. Got my fingers crossed....
Heres my effort and a peek at the goodies I've enclosed.....
I have really enjoyed painting the envelope...perhaps I should learn to do my blog banner and make it really individual....Now I am getting carried away I think!!
However there's one thing for certain that I have learned from all this, that I really do enjoy giving as much as receiving.
Off to do a bit of ironing now before I have to go shopping for new clothes as they're all in the wash!...Don't think hubby will wear that one though.........
