100 Posts & A Give-Away
It seems that I'm here today writing post #100. I suppose it just proves I can talk with my head under wet cement!!! In all seriousness, I have to thank everyone for the encouragement and support. I honestly didn't think I had anything to blog about, but I keep finding something. The piece of crazy patchwork in the above photograph is something I made some time ago. It is a sewing folder/caddy, roughly A4 size flat. To show my appreciation, I would like to offer this as a give-away, if you would care to comment here in the next few days.
The caddy actually folds in half and 'closes' with two satin ribbon ties. Fabrics used are silk dupions and velvet. Colours are black, silver grey, hot pink, purple, and jade. It has been reasonably heavily embroidered/embellished.
The inside is a little difficult to show. There are some black wool felt 'pages' for needles, three small slide in pockets, two larger slide in pockets, and one large zippered pocket [lining black poly cotton].
I have been fortunate to have been given the loan of a small digital camera until I can organize a new one. I can transfer the images to my computer with the USB cord, and don't have to install the software that belongs to it [a different brand than my now deceased Canon]. I have also managed to delete my photos from the card, so the very generous person won't have my silly things taking up room on their card.
Please feel free to leave a comment. I will do a draw and announce a winner soon, probably just into February.
Thank you all again for giving me a reason to keep blogging.
