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.
