>Happy Dance, Surprises and The Winner Is….


Had a lovely surprise in the post when i got home yesterday, as i won a giveaway on Sharon’s blog, and its perfect. i have also got my very first hand dyed thread, so I am itching to start using it, i may have to incorporate it into the LK Friendship chart, Thank You Sharon!!

I have also done my very first project on the sewing machine that i had to follow using a pattern. I bought the fabric on a whim as i loved the colours and to be honest i don’t know about it now, but i still love the finished product. I used Amy Butlers swing bag pattern and it was really easy to follow. i haven’t put a bow on it, i think its fussy enough, but this is the start of the bag making for me, so i won’t have the hubby moaning on about wanting another handbag.

My hubby was surprised i chose a easy pattern to start with, as he says i always jump straight in. When i first started cross stitching, my very first thing i stitched was this Country Companion’s design, i had never stitched a thing and it was a challenge but i soon got into it, i think i will have to go a little slower on the sewing machine though, there’s all these terms that i have to keep looking up what they mean, so no dear hubby i wont be making you a jacket for fishing, not just yet! lol

Oh i forgot to mention Kim I need you adress to post off the LK easter Samplers to you as your name was picked out!
