We have a Winner

Hello people, Happy Monday! Absolutely horrified here, to see white stuff, commonly known as snow, falling from the sky.  Yuck!

A big thank you to those of you who gamely entered the craft-it-forward, today is of course, the big draw day!  I was a bit surprised that so few people entered, to be honest; going on previous giveaways, the entries were in triple figures but I guess the "carrying forward" bit made a difference. So, a big thank you to those of you who did enter and were prepared to carry on spreading the crafty love.




So, the random number thingy came up with J's Happiness/Simple Things  as the first winner of the red goodies and Cheryl/Time to Craft as the second name, who therefore wins the pink goodies.  Ladies, as soon as you let me have your addresses, I'll be pleased to get your parcels off to you.  (Leave me a comment with your address on this post, please, it shall be "for my eyes only".)



My trusty handyman has taken up residence again from today to work on renovating the shower room on the top floor.  My crafting time has been chopped down by ordering of materials and so on, and I am accompanied by banging and clanging but all in a good cause, of course.  I have managed to finish making over my latest vintage sewing basket for sale, and funnily enough, it has the look of lurrve about it too, very appropriate.  Sadly, it's a little late in the day for good photos now so I shall hope for brighter skies (and more hours in the day!) tomorrow so that if someone takes a fancy to it, I'll be able to get it posted asap.

  1. sorry I missed this giveaway, looks like some beautiful prizes. I did a pay -it-forward type giveaway on facebook a month ago. NO one was game, I was bummed. Guess people are busy.

  3. Like you I had very few takers for the CIF too, well probably far fewer, like about 9 I seem to remember! I put it down to doing it just before Christmas but maybe you're right some bloggers are just readers not makers.
    I did toy with the idea of putting my name back in the hat because the prizes were so lovely but thought that might be a bit cheeky!
    Loving the sewing basket too.

  11. I would have loved to enter ... and enjoyed paying it forward, but it was only open to bloggers. I think you will find that a lot of your readers are generous makers!

  13. Thanks for your comments. I don't see how the carry-it-forward would have worked for those without a blog?

  15. Congratulations to the winners even though I didn't win. I'm really surprised you didn't have many entrants when you were offering such wonderful prizes. Still there's nowt so queer as folk as they say. The new sewing basket looks fabulous. Philippa x
