And the WINNER is........

Here it is at last! The big "50" !! And without further ado, it is time to announce the winner(s). I decided to do two drawers so there will be one winner from Australia and one from amongst our International friends. Like I said, the prizes will be revealed after being received.
Thanks to everyone who entered, it was great to have so many entries.
The Australian winner, whom I can surprise with a parcel if she doesn't read this post, is "Helen Stubbings" from Hugs from Helen. I already have Helen's postal address as I won a pattern from her blog draw only a couple of weeks ago.
The International prize goes to "Ulla" from Ulla's Fiber Blog. Ulla is from Sweden and is also one of my PIF pals, so she will receive 2 gifts from me when I get that one done too.
So that's it for now. Will have to spend a bit less time on the computer and get some more stitching done so I have something more to show off.
Thanks again for all the comments and congratulations to the winners. I hope they enjoy their prizes. = )

Last Chance......

I've been posting so much in the last fortnight, I can't seem to find anything crafty to show, so here's a photo of Rachel who wants to do the draw of the giveaway. This is a whacky photo from Christmas last year.

So this is it! Post number 49 !!! Last chance for comments to go in the draw! I will draw on Sunday and announce it if my computer allows me to turn it on, otherwise definately Monday on another computer. Seeing as I haven't finished getting the prize organised, I've decided to keep it to myself and not show it until after it has arrived at it's destination, that way it will be a surprise for the recipient. Thanks for all my comments so far!!

Back soon!

Happy Blogaversary To Me.......

Lookee at the blogaversary present Narelle gave me. A new layout!! I wasn't quite game to attempt it alone, and have seen on other blogs how some had lost there sidebars etc., so I asked Narelle to give me a hand. This is post number 48 girls! I will follow this week with 49 and then it will be the draw. Thanks so much for everyone who has come by and left a comment. It's nice to hear from you all.

Narelle and I also had a nice day out on Saturday. A nearby quilt group incorporated a show and tell with Australia's Biggest Morning Tea so that made for a nice day out, nice food and nice quilts while raising money for a good cause. Then we came back to my place for a bit of stitching. What bliss!


OK, that's it for now, keep those comments comin in and I'll be back real soon!

More Dolls to Show......

This country angel was made by my sister and was given to me for a prize for our girls night in last year. How lucky was I to be able to bring her home again. This young lady is "Sweet Sally". I made her for a Christmas gift from a Country Threads magazine. Her dress is made from fabric I purchased from my trip to Bali.

I'm very happy to be receiving some entries in my giveaway. Keep those comments coming, not time for the draw yet.

Something to show.......

This was my entry in the blankets of love competition in "Down Under Quilts" in 2007. I was looking through the photo folders for something I haven't shown. Remember I'm sneaking up on the 50th post for my draw, so don't forget to comment! It mustn't be long till the magazine announces the competition for this year. I look forward to doing it again, I enjoy the challenge. The feature fabric for this one was the yellow. It was much easier to work with than last years.

Annie Louise.......

This young lady is Annie Louise. She is the Annie doll that I made for Lindi at Quilty Threads. I also made the gingerbread man and hanging ornie too. Lindi said in her profile that she liked gingerbread but I couldn't find the real thing, so stitched one for her instead. I thoroughly enjoyed making this Annie for Lindi and was thrilled with the one she made for me too. These blog swaps are such fun! This little cupcake pincushion was another little something included in Lindi's parcel. It turned out so lovely! I made it from a pattern that I was lucky enough to win from a giveaway on Shelley's blog, Angels Come to Play. It was easy to make and is so cute, I plan to make some more real soon.

Now, talking about giveaways..... it just so happens that the 15th of May was the one year anniversary of my joining in in blogland. I will also be up to my 50th post very soon. So, with these things in mind, I figure it is my turn to give something back to blogland. From this post until my 49th I will count any comments in the draw. 13 is the highest number of comments I have received before, I would love to beat it and to get some idea of how many sneek a peek at my blog. I would also love the opportunity to give something back, perhaps, to someone that I have been lucky enough to win from, or have had the opportunity of meeting through the many swaps I have taken part in.
So, that's it. All you need to do is leave a comment from now until post 49. Oh, and if I seem to go missing again, don't despair, I am still having intermittment computer problems but will return, and will make the draw as promised. And the prize.....well that's not quite decided on yet, so it will be a surprise too!

Welcome Annie Sunshine.....

I've been without my computer for three days, so after ringing the computer shop for some advice which provided a simple answer; here I am posting hurriedly before it decides it's not working again. We'll see.....

So without further ado; I'd like to introduce Annie Sunshine. This little Annie was made for me by Lindi of Quilty Threads. Aint she just so sweet!! She has brought with her her pal Marmalade and also some gifts too! Thank you so much Lindi! This has been such a fun swap thanks to Aunt Pitty Pat!

And if you happen to be passing by's a sneaky peek of a little something which is heading your way as we speak...or type....and you'll just have to wait and see...

back soon......hopefully..
