Lucky Me!

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway for one of Hannah of Chicken Willow's beautiful iPad cosies a few weeks ago. Now I don't actually own an iPad but it looked so beautiful I couldn't resist entering the giveaway. Look at that gorgeous fabric and how well it's made.  Just amazing!

Click on this picture to enlarge it and check out that beautifully neat stitching!

It has been reinvented as a camera cosy. I regularly take my camera out with me in my handbag and worry about it getting bashed about. Now it will be all snug in that fleece and I'll be able to grab it a lot quicker too so thank you Hannah!

I was also lucky enough to have my friend Joanna at Little Minx think of me while she was out op shopping. She found this incredible 20m long tape measure and wondered if I might like it. That would be quite an impressive tape measure rose brooch! I'm really looking forward to the challenge of making it. I think it will have to be a display piece as I don't think even I'd be game to wear something that big! Thank you Joanna.

Joanna's planning a Rosy tea party for her little girl's birthday and has been out collecting the most beautiful teacups and saucers for the party. I can't wait to see the party plans unfold over the next few weeks. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

There's a peek of sunshine through the clouds out there today. I've actually managed to get some washing out on the line today. It's been so wet lately. I really can't wait until it gets a little drier and warmer. Come on Spring. Hurry up!!
