Sorry for keeping you waiting a day but I've been a bit busy with the "mile a minute" blocks project. I think I may be hooked! I've never done so much sewing in a space of 24 hours!
Anyway, enough of that. In true blogging fashion I accosted a third party for my Scrappy Crow draw. There were 19 entrants! Thank you all for your lovely comments and support. I think you're all very brave to keep coming back for more of my bimbling and burbling :o) but I do appreciate every visit and every word you leave.
All the names were written onto paper slips and put into the box.
The disinterested third party otherwise known as my poorly sick DH put his hand in the box,
a name was drawn out and it was
Yay! Kate!! Congratulations Kate! I have your address so I'll be popping Mr Scrappy Crow into the post asap.
Now I feel really bad because I couldn't give everyone a scrappy crow. They are really easy to make tho'. Just cut out 2 vaguely bird shapes. Decorate with scraps of fabric, felt, yarns, ribbons, beads, buttons, anything to make them fun. Stitch the 2 halves together, either by machine or by hand and add a little stuffing before you finish the stitching. The yarns for the head feathers can be caught by the stitching as you join the 2 halves together. I also trapped a ribbon to hang Mr Scrappy with. Go to town! Have fun!
I've been working on my bag today and have been making a few more "mile a minute" blocks with step by step photos so I'll try and get that posted tomorrow or Wednesday. Probably Wednesday cos I'm going to see Mamma Mia tomorrow!! At Last! I must be the only person who hasn't seen it yet! Yay!!!!!!!!
PS My poor DH has been sick for nearly 2 weeks. You won't want to know the details but suffice to say something unsavoury has been sent to the hospital path lab today to see if he has food poisoning or what. We're on a very boring diet of chicken or fish and boiled rice at the minute, even worse than my normal boring diet. :(
