Did I show you…?

UPDATE  

KATHY WON HER COMPETITION. WOW! WELL DONE KATHY! ENJOY YOUR PRIZE!

…the lovely gifts I received from my Swap-bot partner for the Gingham sewing swap I hosted? I was over the moon with them and never expected to get as many items. My favourites are the tote bag and apron, shown below, but my partner kathy also made me a wrist pin cushion, a needle book (both of which I have been using) and a beautiful photo album with a pink gingham cover. I am still deciding what I will use it for – travelling teddies is one option. The tote bag is delicious. I am using it to store my knitting and crochet projects just now, as I don’t want to spoil it by using it outside. I’ll use it in the spring and summer when it is less likely to get wet and dirty, though it is easily washable. The apron is an unusual pattern, with a flared section at the bottom and the fabric is gorgeous. All in all I did well out of that swap and I’m very gratful to Kathy for spending so much time making and sending me these lovely things.

Kathy has her own blog spot http://www.kathymomofmany.blogspot.com, which is well worth a visit. The banner at the top is wonderful as it shows Kathy’s beautiful family. How lovely to see such a happy and healthy family, when so many images these days leave us feeling miserable, disappointed or dispirited. They do you credit Kathy. At the moment Kathy has entered a competition to win aprons for four family members, and I know she would love to win, so please, help me to thank her for her delightful gifts and vote for her, (put a vote in every day if possible) at

I think she truely deserves to win, but even if you don’t Kathy, you are a winner in my book!

Please vote folks!

Good luck Kathy…I’m away to cast todays vote! 🙂
