Huge thank you to April and fabric musings


I wanted to say a huge thank you to the lovely April at Cake makes the world a better place

for her 100th post giveaway, which I was fortunate enough to win. She sent me some absolutely lovely cross stitch pieces that she has done - a notebook and bookmark. And she also sent some beautiful pastel buttons and beads.

They will all be well used. Thank you, April. Her blog is such a good one, aside from one of the best blog names I've found, so take a read if you haven't already discovered her.

Now, I've been doing some more stitching...can anybody guess what I'm making...




I've been so encouraged by everybody, and I'm enjoying my new discovery of sewing so much that I've made a big decision, but I'll post about that when I'm feeling braver!

I also wanted to show you a little itsy bit of one of the lush fabrics I found in France on holiday. Can't wait to get going on it.


More to come, but got to go and sort out new school shoes now for the three little ones. Gulp. Have a lovely day everyone.

Gorgeous fabric!
Would you be making a fabric bucket by any chance?
Lovely giveaway prize.
I don't envy you buying school shoes, I always find it a nightmare especially when they get home and change their minds!!

I say a fabric bucket too, though I don't think we've seen nearly enough of the yummy french fabric.

Thanks for the lovely comment you left for me.

Love and blessings
