Birthday Giveaway !

Well, it's here!  My little, humble blog has turned one!  I can not believe it has been a whole year since I started writing all about what I get up to in my sewing room.  There have been lots of ups and downs with milestones and obstacles all to work my way through.  I thought that the best way to celebrate would of course be with a GIVEAWAY.  I have put together a little Easter inspired gift for one lucky winner.
The winner will receive a Bouncing Bunnies Felt Kit, 2 felt Easter Eggs, a bag of buttons and some ribbon to match.  This will get your Easter gift giving off to a great start. 

All you need to do is go over to my Face book page and check out the Photo Galleries.  Tell me what is your favourite item and leave a comment on this blog.  Entries will close on 24th March, 2011 at 7pm (WST).  Make sure I can contact you through your comment and I am happy to post internationally.  The winner will be chosen via


In theme with Birthdays I have been spying lots of lovely things on the net in the past week which have now made my own Birthday Wish list.  I'd though I'd share them with you:

1.  Top, top, top of my list is this new Camera Bag 
I came across this store - Epiphanie and fell in love immediately with these Camera bags.  How wonderful that I can now extend my regular Handbag Obsession to include one just as adored and loved for my new Camera.  (Hubby if you are reading I would really love "Belle" in the Turquoise colour!)

2. Next on my list are some new supplies from Sublime Stitching

I do have some of these transfers and would like to get some new ones.  I think these would be great to do with my girls and just because I love sitting and stitching.  They may help pass some time on an upcoming camping trip.  I am especially after some transfer pens and paper.

3. I have had my eye on a few books recently.  Those who know me well know how I don't normally ready anything longer than a Recipe (except for the Twilight series!).  Craft books are one exception and I love borrowing books from the library and growing my own library of craft/sewing books.  I love flicking through the beautiful pages and photos for inspiration.  These titles are top of my list!

Thanks for sticking by my for the past year to all my readers.  It is humbling to think that others out there take the time to read my ramblings and see all I get up to.  Here's to a wonderful year ahead!
