It's My 1st Blogiversary and a Giveaway.....


I could hardly believe it myself and had to double check!

Has it really been a year of my random ramblings and the odd photograph thrown in?

I hope I haven't bored too many people but I would like to say a very big thank you to each and everyone of you who have come to visit me at my little spot in Blogland.

I have made some wonderful friends and been to so many countries in Blogland, learned so many new things, laughed with people, shared with people. The world is such a big place but its nice to feel a part of things and that really I can be in any place in the world with only just a click.

The lady I have to thank (or is that to blame) for encouraging me to inflict myself on you all is Sheila from Australia. Sheila was my Secret Stitching Angel 2008 and as I didn't have a blog then Sheila encouraged me to start one and here I am. Thank you Sheila for introducing me to the world of blogging and holding my hands in the early days.

To celebrate this momentus occasion I have decided to hold a giveaway (also open internationally). I have been lucky enough to win a few in the past and I hope you will enjoy one from me. I am working on a few ideas for the giveaway and I will post them as soon as I can.

*UPDATE - the giveaway will be a bag made by me, photo to follow later*

All you have to do is leave me a comment and I will draw the winner on 31 August 2009.

I so enjoy looking at your bags. As I too make many bags and some quilts. My family has also learned that I love to sew and sometimes that makes dinner late. LOL Happy Blogiversary!
