The best title I could think of to sum up what I wanted to post about today was a simple 'thank you' to everyone who has left me lovely comments over the last few days. I can hardly imagine myself inspiring anyone at all, but it's nice to hear that I do. Rebecca.did.it, I'm pleased you felt so inspired that you bought a new sewing machine :o) (please don't send me the bill tho). So many of you have de-lurked from the farthest corners of blogdom too, thanks you for showing yourselves - at least now I know of some of the people who pop by to read my ramblings.
The winner of the blogiversary party bag is....Comment number 17, Emma and SpannerEmma said 'Congratulations! I love your work and your blog, when I'm having a duff day I always swing by for a peek at your lovely creations.
Threaten your sewing machine with a replacement - this has kept mine on it's best behaviour for the last ten years!'
Emma, please contact me at monda[at]homecall[dot]co[dot]uk with your address details and I'll pop the party bag in the post to you.
And now for something completely different, just a very small sneak peak at the mini quilt I have been making for my swap partner JodieI need to put the finishing touches to it this evening so must pop off and do that now too.
You'll also be pleased to hear that our little stevie had her stitches out and her buster collar removed (the cone thing that she had to wear to stop her licking her stitches out). We've had to keep her in the house for 10 days so it was a blessed relief when we could let her out again - I tried to take a picture of her enjoying the outdoors, but this is as good as I got - she's been non stop enjoying her new found freedom!
