...and the winner is

TODAY IS GIVWEAWAY DAY SO I AM GIVING IT AWAY TODAY!!!!! (even though apparently you are suppose to wait three days...but mines been running for ages ...anyway rules were made to be broken and all that....

A complicated process took place this morning where I tried to add up the entries and who had followed and commented and twittered and what have and what not ...then I had to pick a winner between the number 1- 85 remember as some people had more than one entry so I phoned Chef and said tell me a number between 1-85.............. he chose I counted along my list until number 65 ( I was trying to avoid writing all the entries down and putting them in a hat- which it turned out would have been so much quicker!!)...

ANYWAY:and the winner is Melanie of the lovely blog M*so email me and send me your address so I can post the sensational package to you... I was so confused if this process was going to be fair ... I still don't know if it was but Mel - you won!

Do you ever do that? Try to take a short cut and it ends up taking twice as long.... I am notoriously impatient at times and this bull -at- a -gate mentality I have- sometimes causes me much grief...

Chef is teaching me to slow down- stop ramma- jamming ( I am one of those people that if, for example, I am trying to fit a square peg in a round hole I will push and ram until it breaks- and I get angry- rather than slowly trying to work out if it will fit....we call this ramma- jamming, or being a ramma-jamma, my friends family came up with this term as it seems to be hereditary)...I have learnt this lesson well with sewing- yes it takes longer to iron the hems etc- but then you are happy because they are straight...yes it takes longer to use pins...but then it sits together properly.....etc etc...

Also, thankyou thankyou thankyou to all those who sent me lovely emails etc about the flood, we are all fine.x


  1. glad you are fine and not under water!
    Congratulations to Melanie!

  2. Oh my goodness! I won something! I never win anything! This is so exciting! I am so happy! Thank you Thank you Thank you!

  3. It was lovely to take a look at your winner's blog too so a great link. And thanks for your comment on my blog about my clothes creatures - hope you dodn't mind the VERY pale imitation but I just love, love, love your work and couldn't help but be inspired...but don't worry, I don't think Etsy will be calling any time soon!!!!

  4. Ps...I am SOOOOOO impatient and rush into everything and never do anything as well as I see it in my head. I am starting up a new blog for my products (no, the creatues will not be for sale - nor will ANYTHING that requires sewing!!!) but I make notebooks/personlised hand-designed party bags/shopping bags/ all recyled materials etc and I am really trying to take my time with it because for once I actually want to get it right. But we will see....


what a nice person you are- taking the time to comment in this busy hectic world...Thank you!!
