|Ready ... Set ...|
Even with a few interruptions I managed to get 2 bouts of sewing done. It is very satisfying seeing the stitched fabric folding up at the back of the sewing machine.
After a trip to the park, dinner, bath & bed for Miss M I set myself up for the evening.
The movie was very enjoyable (as were the chocolates & champers *grin*) and I managed to finish my butterfly and start a mushroom on my current hand stitching project.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us again this month. With 44 people joining in it's lucky she has a big house (*wink*).
Now, for the Christmas giveaway. I confess to being a die-hard Christmas-holic. I love everything Christmas, particularly our family traditions, although I do think the commercialism of Christmas nowadays can detract from the overall experience a bit. That doesn't stop me getting excited though!
So to celebrate the imminent arrival of the 2014 festive season, and the joy a hand stitched gift can bring, I am very excited to be giving away 1 copy of Gail Pan's 'Simply Christmas 2014' book. There are some gorgeous projects and patterns in here and hopefully you will have enough time before Christmas to make 1 or 2 (or more).
To enter the competition just add your name to the list below and leave me a comment telling me your favourite thing about Christmas. The competition closes on Wed 1st October and the winner will be drawn at random on 2nd October.
Good luck! I'm off to check out what everyone else got up to for FNSI. You can see all the activity on Wendy's blog here.
