We have a winner.
It's Caz of Never Knew who lives a long long way from me indeed!
My bundle of goodies will be travelling all the way to North Queensland, Australia. I 'never knew' they'd be going so far :o) Congratulations Caz xx
Thank you to everyone who took part ♥♥
Here's my August sampler which you can also see on my sampler page . I've put up a Cornwall sampler too.
Well, tomorrow my children are all back at school. I must say it has been a good summer holiday which has just whizzed by. I was just looking at the 'to do' list I made back in July. Instead of teaching both sons to cook three dishes each I only managed to teach one son to make one thing. Instead of decluttering my daughter's room with her I did it by myself and it now looks exactly the way it did before I started. I did manage a trip to Witley Court with daughter and two of her friends though.
Younger son's buddies did not come round with loud musical instruments, shoe buying was a breeze and we all had a lovely relaxed six weeks.
I am so looking forward to a solitary trip to Waitrose tomorrow though. Simple pleasures :o)
Granny Triangle Bunting
Some of you asked for a tutorial for the bunting in my giveaway. I pinched the pattern from Carina's Craftblog. I followed her instructions but didn't use the 'magic circle, to begin the triangles. I just made a chain of 4 stitches and slip-stitched it together before proceeding with the rest of the pattern as outlined by Carina. To join them into a string I followed Carina's tutorial here. They were very easy to do if you have experience of making granny squares ;o)
