Celebrating with a give-away




Blogger's dashboard is telling me this will be my 198th post [the sidebar seems to differ ???].  So.......to celebrate, I am having a give away.  I will announce a winner at post 200.  Wow, I didn't think I'd ever get this far.  I could not have imagined how much support and friendship I would have, so thank you to all those lovely people who read what I go on about.

The photograph above shows the little things I've been playing with lately.  I have made a glasses case, and a comb case [with wide tooth comb] - there are two things I just can't stand, not being able to read the menu, and having untidy hair...........LOL..  I've taken two photographs, one inside with the flash, and one outside with natural light.  It's hard to show the correct colour.  Suffice to say, they are browny/reddy/goldy/bronzey with some stitching, and glitter for good measure.  I've made them slightly different in size, and one has brown felt lining, the other black.  I thought that might make them easier to sort out in one's handbag.  They are quite blingey [I suppose you guessed that already].  Now, I must own up.  They began their life as two dried up baby wipes.


If you would like them as a gift, please leave a comment.  You know the usual drill.   I hope someone will like them.

My hair is always untidy-refuses to obey me, but I do like to be able to read, so glasses are a necessity and a case like yours is wonderful.

Congratulations on all the blogs.

Two dried up baby wipes? LOL! You never stop to amaze me, Linda. I am still using baby wipes on my grandchildren, when needed, they are so practical. But I will never look at them in the same light again, LOL!!! Well done :)

Thank you ladies for the quick response. I had to come back just to assure people that the wipes were 'unused'...........LOL...... Thought I should clarify that!! I might try colouring some more with brighter colours.

Linda, I meant to comment the other day but I am not sure what happened. Never mind - as usual gorgeous work. Nappy wipes are still used here in the traditional way when I am minding the twins but I will have to think of other uses.
