Missed My 400th Post

I was so busy gas bagging I didn't notice that this is post number 402 so I thought a little celebratory giveaway is in order. This giveaway is only open to my lovely FOLLOWERS. You are such lovely people and I treasure your lovely comments and support of my creative endeavours. Also the help and answers to my dumb techie questions that seem to be like a foreign language to me.
If you would like to be in the draw for a copy of my "Stitchery Keepsakes" booklet, an oh so cute hand painted birdie from my gorgeous talented friend Tracey from Rose Petals Past, sweet fabric, William Morris gift card and a little birdie notebook just leave me a comment to that effect. I will draw it next Tuesday which will be officially ****SPRING **** and little birdies love Spring as do I.
A sneak peek in the booklet.
Good Luck to you all and thanks for being the nicest followers there are.
The postie bought me a special parcel last week and as it has been doing the rounds with friends and family I haven't had a chance to take a photo but I had my blog diary of our trip published and it's arrived.
It has been so much fun looking back over it all and Mr R and I are amazed at just what we got to see and do and how quickly it all went by. Our list in now 10 times longer than when we started of all the places we want to see together. So this is the reason you had to sit through all those holiday posts....Thanks!
On the sewing front I think I told you I had a little redwork project on the go because I go through withdrawals if I don't. Well here is a sneaky of it. Now I need to have another...just because! Am I crazy or what?
I have also been playing with "Merry Mistletoe". You may have seen some of my friends blocks from my private on line stitching group. I thought if some of my friends stitched along with me it would be a whole lot of fun. So I am playing with my blocks at present and I will be releasing a pattern when it's done...so watch this space.

I have finally decided on a bit brighter fabric for it which is so different from what I usually do but I quite like it.
Well that's it from me I should of been out of here half an hour ago.
Have a wonderful day people.
"Any day stitching is a good day"
