Giveaway Winner ! (and another snowman finish!)


Thank you all for posting and your entries. It certainly was a milestone that is worth celebrating. My son's friend, Danny stayed overnight and on Sunday morning, once everybody had surfaced, I arranged entries into the Pink Bowls of Destiny (love that term, thank you Edgar). Danny drew the following winners:

Post Office kit (plus): Margaret (Solstitches)
Bluebells & Daffodils (plus): Val Laird
Patchwork mags(plus): Beck
Various Charts : Nutmeg

I am finishing off the stitched item for my 100th follower today : Sharona
YOur prizes will be on their way by the end of the week - Congratulations!!!!


What I didn't show you was my purchase to celebrate Mum's birthday yesterday at the Antique Fair.
This little enamel teaset is not complete, although the 3 coffeepots all have their lids. I have 12 tiny cups, four saucers, four bowls, four plates. One cup is missing it's handle. They have some weight to them, I don't think that they are aluminium. I feel that there is some age to them - and they were just whimsical enough to appeal to me. (new mantra - I do NOT need to start another collection theme - doll's toy sets!!!!) I call them tiny, the coffee pots are just under 1" tall.

SNOWMEN - SNOWMEN - SNOWMEN

Another snowman finish for 2010
Bent Creek's Winter Row.
Stitched on soft blue 14count aida - using Needle Necessities floss for the most part - the orange carrot noses were an obscure hand-dyed found in my stash.
As this is rather a wide finish - it is not likely to end up as a cushion. However, I might fashion it into a wall hanging.......hmmmm the possibilities...
