I have a new friend!

I won some money in a competition last week and chose to spend some of it on a new sewing machine.

The one I had was kindly donated by my mother in law and I've wanted to choose one of my own for some time but could never justify the expense when I already had one that worked perfectly well. Some unexpected cash was the perfect opportunity to treat myself.

It arrived this afternoon and I have had a little play around with it but thought I'd share my excitement before getting really stuck in. It has 40 different stitches to play with! What fun!

A random number generator picked a winner of the giveaway and it's Crafty Helen!

Please send me your details so I can get your goodies off to you!

Was going to post without a picture but it looked naked so thought I'd show you my new bath hat! Very, ahem, happily modelled by Miss. P!

Pretty Useful

Some things are necessary and useful but it doesn't mean they can't be pretty! I have some lovely round cake tins but they are no good for loaf and square cakes so when I saw these in Tescos I knew they were essential for my kitchen! A bargain too at only £6 for the set!

Spending my hard earned pennies need not be so painful when I'm using a purse that makes me smile every time it comes out of my bag (which is far too often)!

Hope everyone is having a lovely easter weekend and don't forget to enter my giveaway here!

Been Unfaithful + Giveaway

I'm sorry to say I have been cheating on my hobby with another. (Please note that was hobby and not hubby)! My new camera has been getting lots of attention and it has left my sewing machine feeling rather sorry for herself!

I did make a sock monkey for my brother's birthday recently and he was quite a giant! I forgot mens socks were bigger than ladies!

I managed to get the Rosali bedding I wanted although it took me forever to decide between the white and the blue!!!

I even managed to get a bag from Primark when a kind blogger by the name of Claire over at Dolly Dollop spared me from my misery and sent one to me!

Now, as way of apology to my poor neglected sewing machine I am doing my first giveaway! Plus I need to give something back to blogland as I have won a few giveaways and been on the receiving end of the kindness of bloggers.

Not sure exactly what will be going in the parcel yet but definitely something handmade along with some other bits.

So leave a comment on this post by Friday 9th April and I will draw a winner after that.
