101 things, giveaway wins and thank you's

Hi friends,
So firstly a quick update with my 101/1001. I wrote my letter to myself, that was a bit weird to say the least. I've brought a couple of notebooks to keep a journal of my progress. Me and the Kids visited The Hive which is the new city Library and History Centre. The design has split opinion locally, but I kind of like it and it is such a user friendly place and doesn't feel like a library at all.

I won a giveaway over on Laura's blog. She had a stash sort out and gave away 3 big bags of stash and I was lucky enough to win one of them. Laura also included a pair of earrings and a cute little seal ami.

The bag was full of charts, stickers, ribbons, teddybear fabric, threads and other crafty bits and bobs too. There was also a lovely handbag cross stitch kit too.

Lastly I made a little something for Laura and Steph as a little thank you for sending me beads for my friend Jennie in Thailand. I'm sure the kids there will have fun making jewellery with them.

So I made Laura a little needle felted piggy. Here he is sat with a little parcel of fabric I sent Laura for her Hexagon quilt.

And I sent Steph a little needlefelted russian doll as she also sent me a huge pile of felting goodies with the beads for me.

Right I'm off to put the finishing touches to my Giveaway prize, hopefully I'll get it launched this weekend. Woo Hoo!!! xx

  4. Aw lovely goodies for Laura and Steph :-) I have no clue about needle felting, never tried it and plan to not do so either, I already have way too many crafts to cram into my days without more creeping in and getting me hooked, lol!
