Winner, winner.........!!!!

Well I almost forgot about my giveaway....eeeek!

I was babysitting my granddaughter yesterday and I was so exhausted when I got home I completely forgot:)

Anyway not to worry....the names where written down, placed in my special red tin.

 I then had my wonderful son draw a name.

MARY ANNE !!!! from Magpie's Mumblings

Congratulations:) I've sent you an email.

I wish everyone who entered could be a winner but there's always the next time.

Take care.

Some news........and, a giveaway....

A short while ago I was very fortunate to win a giveaway from a lovely blog called Middle of Nowhere belonging to the wonderful Gretel Parker.

Gretel is a professional children's illustrator, toymaker and a wonderfully talented needle felter.  She is currently featured in a new book called Mollie Makes Feathered Friends. She had a giveaway for a copy of the book and I won:)

I received the book from the publisher yesterday:):):):):):)  So many lovely projects. I can't wait to try some of them out.

 Other news........

I also have a copy of a delightful new cross stitch book called What Delilah Did presents Storyland Cross Stitch

Go here to Delilah's blog to see more about the book and better pictures:)

It's a lovely little book full of really adorable and fun cross stitch projects. At the back of the book there is also a little freebie gift.

I love the table of contents.....Projects for beginners, Practice makes perfect and my favourite...Projects for the brave & determined...:) That's me.

Now you are all probably saying to yourselves...So what!!!

I have TWO copies of the book. Well I don't need two books the same do I? No I don't:)

So I will just have to give one away and share my good luck. Right?

In order to win all I ask is that you leave a comment on this blog post and that I can get in touch with you via email. Easy peasy.

I'll leave this open until August 10th and then I'll pick a winner.  Good luck everyone!!!

Take care:)
