enjoyment and a very lucky winner

It is busy back to school time, life is really stressful but thank goodness for pretty things to sew. I have been working on my star flowers and am loving how they look:


It has also been quite a long time since I have done any embroidery so I started working on this piece; it is written by Jodi, she kindly gave me permission to stitch her beautiful poem.



And now to the winner of my giveaway...




Huge congratulations Catrin! I'm sending you an email.

For the sake of being honest, I had to draw again because the first winner was a no reply blogger and you were warned to leave your email address! Gah. That is so annoying.

Thank you again to all the sponsors and to everyone that entered and left such lovely comments. I hope you enjoy discovering and supporting these great companies:

  
    


I'm off to enjoy more sewing :)

  8. Bugger. Followed that link and my eyes are leaking at work. I'm a bit soft this week since my kid's away on a school trip all week - the house is empty! Good luck getting back into the school routine!
