Bit of a milestone

Lots of people have had their 100th post recently, and now it's my turn - well, it's actually my 101st but I wanted to get the little hats posted in time. Thanks for all the hat love and I'm heartened to hear people will be having a go! Rather more bobble angst than I was anticipating though - if I can get my act together I'll do some photos of how I do mine.


Anyway, for a celebration you have to have cakes, so ...

Yes, that is glitter - edible, not toddler - and I just couldn't help myself.

So, to the traditional giveaway. I have made a couple of things - a pincushion from Last Minute Patchwork Gifts, and a little pouch featuring my favourite colours:


The pouch has an embroidered motif on the outside that also appears on the lining fabric. I've put a packet of tissues in mine, but it's big enough to carry a few bits & pieces - maybe a tiny sewing kit?


The package will also contain other treats - some edible glitter (but not baby pink since Splat have sold out - bother), certainly chocolate, maybe wool, maybe fabric - we'll see what I can fit in.

Anyway, if you would like a parcel of pretty things, leave a comment and I'll draw a name from a hat this Sunday (7th) .

  3. I can't believe you have given me a link to a shop which sells cookie cutters and sprinkles. Did I not warn you about my addiction??!

    You really need to pick me out of the hat now, to make up for the large credit card bill I am about to incur...

    But seriously now, happy 100th and here's to many many more.

  8. The cakes look really yummy! I am on yet another pink round of small bobble hats and finding a tapestry needle the easiest way of wrapping wool around insanely small pieces of card. Look forward to seeing your hats.
    Happy 100th!

    ps. I need a tissue holder, Kitty's got an awful cold. Do I get the sympathy vote, shamelessly exploiting my children??!!

  23. Happy milestone!
    Considering I just received a super package from you recently, you need not put my name in the hat. Not to mention that crazy postage. But some other lucky, lucky person will be so happy to be chosen :)
    Congrats! And many happy returns. ? You know what I mean.
