Fun, Fun, Fun.

oh dear!
Full of good intentions.
I had fully intended
to post the winner of my giveaway

But you know how it is
when you have a new camera.
You just have to
get friendly with it.
Find out what makes it tick.
More importantly
find out how it works.
So that's what I was doing yesterday.
The sun was shining,
the flowers were blooming,
the buds were budding.
So I got clicking.
But I'll keep those for another day,
maybe tomorrow.

This is what was on offer.
I've been using the new camera
for important things too.
A little felt picture.
Embroidered flowers and trees
on handmade felt.
I made the felt on a workshop in Cumbria last year.
I had in mind when I embroidered the felt
that it resembled
an English garden in a Swedish forest!

I've been busy making hexagons too.
And turned some of them into a pincushion.
The front.

The back.
As it is it's a pincushion,
or add a ribbon,
and it's an ornament.

It was lovely reading all your comments,
much appreciated.
Thank you.

All the names went into a hat.
I mean a basket!

Mike was honoured to do the honours.
And Sandi's name was pulled out of the basket!
Sorry to be long winded about that but the link button doesn't work!

So this little group of goodies
will be travelling
half way across the world to Australia.
Just as soon
as I pop them in the post tomorrow!
So congratulations Sandi,
I hope you enjoy them.
And thank you to everyone else for joining in.
I've enjoyed it so much
I will have to think of another one!

Of course I should have said
that I really wanted to send you all a little something.
But apart from it taking me ages to make the 'little somethings,'
I think the cost of sending all the 'little somethings' would have been a bit too much for my little purse!

Hi Lynne,
Isn't it great when you've got a new gadget, AND the time to play with it! You have a new spring in your step! Congratulations Sandi on your lovely gifts! Ros

Lynne said...

Yes I feel it Rosa-Munda, a spring in my step to match the new Spring season!
