a prize!

Look what came in the post for me today, a lovely parcel from Rachel at contented ! I was one of the runners up in her recent giveaway and I was lucky enough to win one of her gorgeous bird brooches - the perfect thing for me! I didn't manage to take a picture before I opened it, I was straight into that gorgeous spotty tissue paper, and not all of the chocolate chicks that were in the parcel made it to the photo. (yum!) Thanks so much Rachel! And this notebook has finally made it way into my etsy shop, more are on their way very soon - some of which will go onto folksy as they have sold out there at the moment. I need more hours in the day, this evening I have mostly been fighting with my sewing machine, which inexplicably decides to go funny halfway through a long seam, which means I will be spending more of the evening unpicking! But this does mean that I am on the final stages of the baby quilt/blanket, which is a good job as we are going to see them on sunday!
