OK - so it's not me who's fifty! (not yet anyway)
But I have 50 followers - hoorah - who would have thought it?
And to celebrate I am having a give away. It's simple - just leave a comment telling me a joke, and I will pick a random winner, not based on the quality of the joke - don't worry, by this time next week (Thursday 19th Jan). The prize will be a hand made item, with some scraps and chocolate in it!
While I'm here, I want to show you some photos I've taken of my brilliant Christmas present from my Mum.....
This photo doesn't do the basket justice - it's quite lovely, and unusual being round shaped.
I am going to replace the dodgy lining with some bright patterned fabric, and use it to store all my cottons in. It's right up my street as it's full of second hand cottons and lace and buttons and wool and ribbons and unusual vintage things that will make their way into my sewing projects.
And, as I'm on a roll now - I have taught myself how to do mosaics with my photos (thanks Flutter Kat for the tutorial)
Here is my mosaic of pouches for the mouthy stitches swap
I am getting quite excited about this swap - as it is making me learn to use flickr and groups over there etc. Can't wait to see who my partner is.
