There will be 333 petals

Giveaway Winner (Finally)

I'm very sorry for the late post. We went to Phillip Island for the long weekend and I could not get enough 3G reception to blog from the iphone. Was sitting upstairs right next to the window trying my little heart out (in the dark for some reason!) to get it to load, with no success :( 
So finally, the winner is Polka Dot Daze
Could you please email me your details and more importantly which prize you would like! Thank you to everyone for entering. I'm sorry I didn't not reply to all of your comments, have been a little unwell. Think I may be lactose intorelent, so are going for the tests next week but in the meantime are being very careful with what I eat! Had a couple of bites of DJ's Chicken Kiev last night and ended up in bed sick less than half a hour later. Not very fun!
Have finished a couple things over the last week, but the all ended up in the shop before silly me took pictures of them. Hopefully take some today and post them later tonight. 

Off to wait for the postie to arrive. Silly volanco, don't you know I need my Kaffe book!

An 'almost' Finished

Tilda Bear from So Sunny Homestyle. About to make herself at home on my bed.
And as promised a couple of pics of my Birthday presents....

Gorgeous ring from Nicole.

Cuckoo 2-tiered cake stand (Wedgewood!) from my brother, two tickets to the Melbourne Zoo from my sister.

And he took the hint! This gorgeous book is in the mail on it's way (hopefully) to Me! Also got Peter Alexander scarf (with pockets "to put your craft stuff in" instead of having needles pinned all over me!), and two gorgeous bottle of wine to add to my collection. (My collection of wine really need a post of it's own!).

Don't forget to comment on my giveaway, hopefully back sometime tomorrow to let you know who has won!

My Creative Space....

My Creative Space is getting someone else to do all the had work, while I get to do the fun stuff, like picking gorgeous wool.

Then getting my beautiful friend Nicole to turn it into this....

Only 200 or so to go....

Make sure you enter my giveaway! It ends tomorrow...Someone is going to get beautiful Tilda book or one of my pincushions.

Look what just arrived in the mail....

I'm so happy because my pins had to move out of their Kaffe pincushion yesterday! Look at that beautiful packaging as well, love the Chez Moi. I'm off to the Moda bake shop for inspiration.

Thank you so much for all the Birthday love. Hoping to do a post later today on some of my gorgeous presents.

Because I like being a tease.....

My Pincushion

Finally I can show a full picture of the pincushion I made for my swap partner Cat.
 I love it so much that Cat was lucky it had her initial on it, or I might have kept it! Lucky she seems to have loved it as much as me. Make sure you enter my giveaway to get one of your very own. I really need to make one for myself sometime too!  Lucky I just happened to have these bits and pieces laying around!
Off to decide what to make first out of my Tilda book...Maybe the bag? 
I'll try and take some photos of the inside tomorrow when the lights a bit better.

My Creative Space....and a GIVEAWAY!

Playing with my new Tilda fabric all the way from England!
The store where I work imported them in and I grabbed them quickly off the shelf. Can't decide what I want to do with them yet so just keep re-arranging them into different piles!

In celebration of my Birthday I'm going to do a Giveaway! You can have the choice between a handmade pincushion like the one I have made for the Foxy pincushion swap (in colours of your choosing) or if you are a follower of this blog, the brand new Tilda book which is not released yet but I have a copy of! 

You know how it goes, one entry for a comment, two for comment and follower, three entries for comment & follower & write about it on your blog. 
I will leave it open until next Friday (23rd).
I'm off to go play with my fabric and stop myself from buying more!

After last year....

After what happened last year...
 We were away and he forgot my Birthday. This was my handmade card, there were no presents (He did make it up to me big time!). 

I thought I better give you some ideas for this year....

1. Owl Bobby Pins 2. Matryoshka Art Doll 3. This Bag and This Book (or you could put the book in the bag!) 4. Smooching Button (I do love the "I'd rather be smooching my crafty girlfriend" too) 5. My Favourite Spot in Spring Cushion

Ps. It's this Friday.

What happens when I get a little OC at work...

All the felt ends up in a nice little rainbow pattern and the fabrics get put in order from lightest to darkest!

Thinking about doing a giveaway for my birthday next week...

My Creative Space...

Trying to get this finished...

I think I have found that I really am a hand sewing kind of person, it just has not 'clicked' with me yet. Although I can't wait to get it finished. Unfortunately it is going straight into the stop where I work as a sample and not on my bed (yet).

Almost finished my pincushion for the swap...

 Sorry I can't show you more but I have personalised the inside of the oval and I think it may give it away if I show you any more. I am really hoping my swap partner likes it.

For more Creative (and Gorgeous) spaces pop over and see this lovely lady! 

Ps. Why I needed to join in with the pin cushion swap...

At least it's in Kaffe!

Grenfell Door Steps

Gorgeous door steps in Grenfell....

This bottom one is my favourite. Love to make a quilt the same (in my spare time!). Hope you had a fantastic Easter weekend. I did no sewing what so ever so need to buckle down this week and finish my pin cushion. Still have to background fabric for DLN quiltalong so just keep gluing down the edges of my petals. Are loving this quilt on DLN flickr.
