I would just like to say thankyou for all the wonderful comments I received on my first
anniversary giveaway, I am delighted that so many of you liked it. I am currently replying to everyone who left a comment, however some comments do not permit me to respond because of the setting on your email reply.
I have visited all of your blogs and I must say I have seen some beautiful creations out there, you are all sooooo talented, I have found lots more inspiration.
Don’t forget that I will not be announcing the winner until this Saturday (5 September ) as I am currently putting all the little bits of paper into a bowl!
Because so many of you commented I am contemplating adding a few more prizes, I may make some more rose pins but I will keep you all in suspense for now! Lol!
I am planning another giveaway, hopefully in time for Christmas, I hope you will all return for that and join in the fun.
My free pattern
As you can see I have posted the free pattern, it is the first time I have used my cross stitch programme so I really do hope you can download the picture, I really struggled to know what to do with it. My husband bought me a cross stitch design programme for my birthday in April and I am just about getting used to it – watch this space for more free cross stitch patterns.
Whilst I was away I bought a few things for my stash, I will be taking photo’s this week to show you all. I bought some really pretty boxes that I have not seen in England, (I am certainly looking forward to decorating them) and I bought some fabric, it was so much cheaper in America.
Holidays and meeting Wendy
I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy from Wendy’s hobbies blog, we had a lovely little meeting and exchanged gifts, I made a pinkeep and Wendy gave me a cross stitch kit, I will be posting pictures in my next post.
The weather was 95 degrees, phew it was too hot for me, I had the factor 30 sunscreen on, I am really fair skinned so I am pretty much the same colour as when I set off on my holidays! Lol!
When I am on the beach someone always says to me ”oh you are so fair skinned aren’t you” mmmm like I don’t know already!!!!! If I had a pound (or a dollar) for every time I have heard that I would be rich!
Thankyou once again for all of your lovely comment’s and encouragement, I will be back Saturday with the winners names!
