Life Happens

Remembering Sadie 1920 - 2010, my mother-in-law.

There have been a few cheerful incidents this last couple of weeks and one of them was receiving this give-away from Fiona in Australia
I was only expecting the blackwork box that you can see at the front right but Fiona included all the other beautiful things too.  Thank you Fiona, you are too generous!!!  It's amazing how receiving these things from fellow bloggers adds that bit extra to our lives.  Another example of how the internet can be a good place.  Apart from the occasional virus, when it became the fashion for idiots to try and ruin the internet experience for everyone, I can't say I've had any negative contacts and now that virus checkers and fire walls are much more sophisticated there is less chance of being infected by these morons.  A bit of common sense helps too, where scams and such like are concerned.  It's meeting people like Fiona that make my life more interesting.

So, to celebrate the all-round niceness I've experienced with friends I've made through the internet, I'm having a give-away too.

You can never have enough of these project bags!!!  They are so handy for all those projects that you have on the go or all those bits and pieces that need to be kept together.  This one includes the pincushion and strawberry shaped scissor fob.  The scissor fob is my latest addition to the accessories I enjoy making.  I was going to give a link to the tutorial that I used but of course I can't find it now.
Just leave a comment and I will draw the winner on 6th June
