Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a super day. I enjoyed a glorious day of sunshine while putting my house in order for the week ahead.
I’m pretty excited about announcing the winners of my latest giveaway draw to welcome 2017. As usual, it’s been interesting seeing where in the world my readers are. I can see in my blog stats how many hits I get from the different countries of the world. So, without further ado, the winners are …..
Jane Budd – Redcar
Martina – Switzerland
Helen Hollybush – Derby
I will be contacting you in order to get your postal addresses and I will be posting as soon as I can get to the post office. Congratulations to you all. I hope you enjoy your prizes.
As you may remember, one of my new year’s resolutions is to learn something new every day. Learning something new every single day isn’t always easy but I’m doing a pretty job of it so far. The most recent thing I have learned is something internet related. Did you know that there are search engines that do not track you? This means that you can travel the internet leaving no trace of yourself. I don’t know how it works. Or even why anyone would need to do that. I suppose some people have something to hide and do not want to leave any tracks. Some people like to sneak around and I suppose it would be a very good tool for a stalker. Goodness only knows. So, that’s my most recent discovery. Interesting, isn’t it?
Now let’s go on to some sewing news. There isn’t much UFO progress to report after finishing my winter block on the weekend. However, I have chosen which small UFO project to work on next. I’m going to turn this little hand quilted quilt into a cushion cover. It matches the décor in my bedroom and I think it will look fab once I have turned it into a cushion cover. So, watch this space for news of its completion.
I’m still making progress on hand quilting my Sweethearts Dozen, albeit slow progress. I am now quilting the outer border of appliqué blocks. I’m keeping it really simple by hand quilting diagonal lines. As it is quite simple and not overly dense it is progressing nicely.
So, it’s been a pretty good Monday in my little world. My weekend guest headed off to work this morning. And I spent a little time putting the house back in order. The washing machine was whirring and the vacuum cleaner has collected any dirt from the floors. I’ve gone out and collected any rubbish that has blown into the garden. And in between all that I even had a chance to sit down to write this post. And all that happened while the sun was shining. Glorious sunshine.
So, for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious quilt maker will be doing some more hand quilting. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing some you truly love doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥♥
