This is a little about me and my hobby which I am so passionate about at times, well all the time really.
I thought as I hadn't done a giveaway for quite some time and as I am getting truely fed up with the winter I would do a little giveaway for a softer, warmer time - Valentines Day!!
Now I do have a couple of little rules for you and these are:
1. All you have to do is leave your name in the comments part forTHISPOST only if you leave a comment on another post I'm afraid you won't be entered, and neither will email entries
2. I also need to know how to contact you in case you are the winner! Please don't forget to leave me YOUR NAME & EMAIL details when you post in the comments (as again I will not be able to enter you into the drawing)
This is open to everyone even if you don't blog, and wherever you might live.
I will draw the winning name ON Thursday 21st January (usually between 15:30 - 16:30 GMT), so check back to see if you have won.
Now you are probably wondering what I'm giving away well its just a little trifle and I reall hope that you like it and want to join in ............
...... The designer is Heart in Hand and its called 'Roses are red', I've stitched it on 32ct Antique white linen, using Gentle Arts thread - my own choice as usual LOL! and I have added a little ribbon rosebud (I know its not red, but I only had the dark pink), then its finished as a little ornament with a satin ribbon hanger, sewn on with a mother of pearl button on the back.
Thankyou for your kind concern about my gum abcess, I have ended up off work for most of last week, my face swelled up on the right side - it was huge, my top lip looked like I had had botox (with half a trout pout) and I looked like a cross between Quasimodos sister and Churchill the dog, (Uk'ers will know who I mean for the dog) not at all attractive I can tell you, and usually I need all the help I can get to look part ways nice - most of the swelling has gone down, though there is still a bit there today on my top lip and under my cheek bone, but the antibiotics have certainly started to work, its been quite painful too, I can't lie on the pillow with my cheek on the right side (which is my normal way) as it gets much to painful and wakes me up. But I need to work so I am braving the banter of the guys I work with and going in tomorrow with plenty of pain killers and killer retorts LOL (I hope LOL)
So even though I have been off I have done little stitching apart from my giveaway and nothing on 'Finch Song', but I have stitched something for a friend this weekend to celebrate her grandsons christening, which I'll show later this week when I've done the finishing
