Good morning dear readers,

 Today I thought I would do a Giveaway. I have been meaning to for quite some time but never quite got to do one. So here it is. If you would like to win the items below just leave me a comment and be a follower and I will add you in the hat. I will pick a winner next Sunday folks so get entering.

The giveaway includes a crochet kit, a hand embroidered scarf, some vintage buttons, knitting needles and a ball of eskimo drops wool, I will also add one or two surprises.

I received two crochet flower frame kits as a gift so have included the extra in the giveaway

I also received this summer cherry brooch which I will be keeping for me, looks fun to do.

I have a finished Ta daaaah dear readers. At long last I have finished my socks that was a knitalong in the begginers knitting group on Ravelry.

What do you think? Do you like them? Admittedly one sock is slightly bigger than the other but you live and learn and I shall definately love wearing them.

I thought I would spring clean my ravelry que, projects and make a start on long forgotton things. So this afternoon I am casting on to find the right needles by doing a gauge. I will be making short cable socks. It is an eskimo drops wool in a lovely red colour. They remind me of christmas time and will be saved to wear over tights to keep my feet exta warm this winter time.

What do you think? Do you like the colour?

Moving on to lovely gifts I have received. I long to learn quilting, I follow a few blogs on the quilting front and just love, love, love all the inspiring things. I received this book and when I have a few spare pennies I am going to have a go. Here is what is inspiring me

Rather a lot to go at there, but they are so stunning.

Just thought I would share my latest read with you, it is a funny read looking at different characters within village life.

And lastly I thought I would leave you with some flower photo's. They really did leave my living room with the most delicious scent.

Take care dear readers and have a lovely week and thank you for reading xxxxxxxxxxx
