Heather, as you're a "No reply" commenter, I can't contact you, so please e-mail me to let me know your snail mail address, so I can post the parcel of goodies off to you. (You have until 13 April to make contact.)
Thank you to everyone who entered. It was a fun week reading all the lovely comments. And welcome to some new followers too. I might have to start thinking about another giveaway, now that I'm on the way toward 400 followers!
Now for a look at that piece of silk!
I'm very pleased at how this little project turned out - sweet elegance with a touch of class is how I would describe it!
It will be off to a Australian Country Craft & Decorating magazine shortly, so a sneak peak will have to do for the moment.
Handmade magazine has a bag issue out this month and my little girl's Flutter-by bag is in there:
I want to thank all the lovely people who sent birthday wishes. I had a fabulous day with people I love around me. My husband gave me a gorgeous embroidery book - think he knows me after 45 years of marriage! Our daughter and her husband, our son and his wife, plus seven of our grandchildren all came to visit. We shared a great party tea with all the food I love and which I don't normally have (because most of it is bad for me!!!)
This week we have two of our grandchildren staying with us during school holidays - two boys 10 and 8. There won't be much sewing done, but we plan at least one fishing trip which will be a first for them! Can imagine we'll spend a bit of time untangling lines!
Hope you have a great week.
