July Giveaway & a Very Happy Camper

Love at first sight!
I'll be stitching here...
I can't believe it is already July. I have to say I am a very happy little camper (please pardon the pun) as hubby and I finally bought our campervan. Because I was so stubborn and wanted what I wanted we were having difficulties finding 'the one' But "TA DA" We found it this weekend. I am so very's not new (4years old) but very well kept and lots of extras thrown in and the model I wanted. So I am starting to believe we may actually get to the 'Alice' & Sth Aus. All we can think about now is "Where first???" We had so many great times in our old ones and driving holidays are what we really enjoy.

July Giveaway: because July means lots of special things to my sons Birthday, My Birthday and ****Christmas in July****I have a 1st draw with 2 Christmas patterns "Down Reindeer Lane" quilt & "Christmas at Ann's" Banner, a piece of fabric and some Christmas ribbon. Draw 2 & 3 will be a copy of "Christmas at Ann's Banner each. Just leave me a comment to be in the draw and I will draw it Monday 11th July, 2011.
July Giveaway
Happy 4th July to all my USA friends.
I hope everyone has a terrific Monday,
Blessings Michelle xxx

  19. Congratulations on finding your camper van, sounds like you have many memorable occasions to look forward to. I was just doing the tea-cup hop and it seems we have a few things in common. Firstly, happy birthday to you and your son. It's both my husband's and my birthdays this month too. Secondly, I too love old country rose and was given the dinner set for my 21st birthday, so that is a very treasured possession. And of course, all things stitchy. It has been great visiting your blog, I will definately visit again.
