200th Post!! Crikey giveaway time!!....

Well, 200 posts sort of sneaked up on me even though I was trying to keep an eye on it. I have taken some photos but light etc does not seem to be on my side....

I bought this great new magazine and decided to subscribe to it. So I signed up and instead of getting issue two I ended up with another issue one which is shown above. Typical but there you are. Issue two has since arrived but more on that another time. So this is part of the giveaway as I thought it might be of use to someone else. I am making the recycled pillowcase into a tote bag at the moment. So another part of the giveaway is this....

So, I am including a (new) pillowcase in bright pink for you try out this idea from the magazine. I bought a pair so I have the other one. I am also including a pincushion from my webshop. I shall also include some little surprise bits such as some nice buttons that could be used to decorate the bag. I do not know where you can find even vintage pillowcases as lovely as the blue one featured in the magazine. It is very eye catching, just my colour.

I want to post this before the Christmas rush so I am having quite a quick deadline of next Sunday 7th December at Midnight (UK time, my blog clock is not right and I am having problems trying to change it! ) so that I can post it next Monday 8th/Tuesday 9th.

Open to everyone by commenting on this post. You will get your name in the hat again if you tell someone else about this giveaway and they tell me that you sent them. So if you pass three people on plus your own comment that is four times your name in the hat. Does that make sense? I hope so, it is after all Friday night and it has been another long week. The brain is starting to go.

The Christmas Decoration swap is gradually coming to an end and there is a link in the side bar to see swapper entries on the Flickr Pool and for participants to ask for an invite and I will sort it out. A lovely entry from Summersadie!

Have a great weekend. Sophie has a ballet lesson then it is Christmas shopping for a few last bits then I have finished. Just the wrapping to do.

Take care xx

Congratulations on 200 posts. I think I'm not even up to 150 yet - mind you, I ramble on so much, that's probably a good thing!

SummerSadie's ornament is stunning, and I was pleased with the photos - thanks for putting them in the pool. I'll blog it this weekend.
