100th Post Giveaway

I can not believe that I have reached a 100 posts!!!
However I have been absent from this blog for the past week due to work. Sounds rather boring I know, but unfortunately true. We had a our annual review which causes worry and concern even for the most level minded person. well it is over for another year unless something else crops up.
I have been able to make a special item for my give-away which I finished last night.

You may remember this lovely fabric that I could not bring myself to cut into and that looking at it was my prefered idea.

Well I have taken the plunge and taken the scissors to it and...
made this...
It measures 18cm wide x 13.5cm deep. The pink ribbon line indicates the start of a pocket and I am putting a special double sided white popper there to hold the deep pocket in place.
Fully lined with white cotton.
A runner-up will get a hand-made felt keyring similar to this one......
I have decided to take my flower theme in clashing colours further and I am busy making a load of these keyrings to compliment the others in my Etsy shop.
Deadline for the give-away is Saturday 3rd May 2008 then I will be able to send if off on Monday.
Just leave a comment on this post and the winner will be announced on Sunday 4th May.
I have been working on some book covers. I have several made in denium ones and completed several orders for fabric covers as presents and leavers gifts. So hoprfully some pictures of those tomorrow.
Best go and do some stitching which has had to sit on the back burner this week.
Best of luck.

PS Added on Sunday 27th.
Silly Billy Me, I can't send it on 4th May because it is a Bank holiday (here in the UK) and I am doing a craft fair that day so how on earth that slipped my mind goodness only knows. So posting on Tuesday 5th May instead, hope that is ok. I think I need a lie down!

hello dear!
lovely peaces!!! :)
I'm sorry, but I can't help you on the translation issue! I'm portuguese and my second language is english. I don't know any of the other languages you have on the translator well enough to tell you if it is good or not. But I think you shoud add portuguese because it is one of the most spoken languages on the world. although this translators are usually really bad. I once had one in my blog and I gave that up because nobody could understand a thing. The translation made no sense.
kisses :)
