A Celebratory Giveaway

Good Morning all. I thought it was going to be a dreary old day but the sun has appeared beautifully and has brightened everything up considerably. It was quite chilly here yesterday and we had our Yoga class with the wood fire going....it was lovely and meditation was so cosy.

On the sewing front I have finished another red work block for my as yet unnamed Snowman quilt.
My little blue version of my birds stitchery is finished and all ready to make it into.....ahm..not telling!
I am also up to date with my July block in my little stitch-a-long with my stitching friends..
I am actually a little ahead..sssh! don't want to spoil their fun with what is coming next.
Now about this 'giveaway' Mean making you wait until the end I know. LOL!
As some of you may know I am having a birthday very shortly and as I feel very blessed to have been around in this old world THAT long and have such beautiful family and friends I decided I would like to share a little something with you to help me celebrate. The draw is open to my followers only....and I do know who you are!!!!! I will have 2 draws the first is for my Aussie followers...
In the giveaway is my new Cup of Friendship cushion pattern, some sweet buttons and pretty pink spotty scissors from Fee's Shabby Shack, a charm pack "Sew Stitchy" by Aneela Hoey (don't you love it..hexies and everything), a sweet butterfly clip and some pretty pink ric rac braid. For my lovely overseas followers I will only have a copy of the pattern in the second draw (sorry but the postage is a bit prohibitive) I hope you understand and will enjoy it anyway as I just couldn't leave you out :)
So there you have it....leave me a comment and tell me where you are from...Aussie or Overseas friend and I will draw it next week if I am not toooo full of cake or haven't left to follow all the nice fireman home who came to put allllll my candles out. Good luck to you all.
Lastly Congratulations to Will & Kate on their new Son.
Blessings Michelle xxx
