The momentous and special day which I mentioned yesterday is my blogiversary. I am 1 today!
To celebrate 1 year and 154 posts I have a blogiversary party bag give away. The party bag so far consists of a selection of fabric: felted wool blanket pieces, cotton (some Cath Kidston) and linen, and a book called 'creating sketchbooks for embroiderers and textile artists'. I may add a few more bits tooIf you want to be the recipient of this party bag just pop a comment on this post between now and 6pm on Tuesday 13th May and this little pile of goodness could be yours.
I've also realised that monkee maker has her blogiversary today too. A double celebration. Happy Blogiversary MM.
I've been sewing like a crazy sewing lady today, and I've also spent about 2 hours trying to figure out why my sewing machine wanted to chew all the fabric I was attempting to sew. I changed the top and bottom tensions countless times, replaced the bobbin case, cleaned the dust out of it and changed the needle, and finally it seems to be behaving a little better - it's a good job too because I was coming to the point where I wanted to have a tantrum and throw it out of the window.
It's been a lovely day here again today. I spent a bit of time out in the garden and took a few pics whilst I was out there - everything is starting to bloom and looks really lush and healthy:
