Well Lovely Folks I am here to apologise to you. After I had written the post yesterday I was busy getting on finishing the second giveaway but something was niggling in the back of my mind. The thought kept on niggling me most of the night and then hit me - how silly of me! When I had written up my post I had said that the flowers were Sweet Williams. Now, Sweet Williams and Stocks are my two all time favourite flowers and I must admit I try to buy them together when I can. I couldn't get any yesterday so just bought the Stocks instead. So why did I call them Sweet William on the post - no idea, maybe there is some deep Freudian explanation which is beyond me. All I can say is sorry for confusing everyone about this - the flowers were Stocks! Apologies to all of you and of course to the flowers.............
I managed to finish the second giveaway last night and both of them shall be filled with goodies according to whoever wins them. This is so I can send the winners gifts which hopefully they will be able to use. I love the colours of this one and only wish I could send the flowers - which are Stocks in case you didn't know! - to everyone. I have put some beading around the dresses and the necklines and on some of the ladies' heads.
This is one side of the bag in more depth so you can really see the beading. I do hope you like it.
This is the inside of the bag which has a tray cloth from the 1930s as part of the lining. It wouldn't cover all of the inside of the bag so I have had to piece it using the main fabric.
Here is the second giveaway which you have already seen and it is another tea towel as is the first giveaway. This one is new to Marks and Spencer so hopefully the winner will be on trend.
The interior of this one is very busy so I hope the winner approves! I must admit that I do tend to go over and beyond with my sewing work.
Well Lovely Folks I cannot believe that a whole year has passed - what did I do with my spare time before blogging - heavens only knows. The benefits for me are meeting so many talented and warm hearted people in all of you. It has also made me progress with my sewing and other crafts as I have felt under pressure to make things to show you. For me this is the best way to learn as it really makes me leave time to progress with what I love doing best - making something special.
I will pull the names out of the hat on Wednesday evening - if you have left a message on your own blog about my giveaways then please tell me and I will make sure that you have two votes. Good luck to everyone and have a lovely evening/morning depending on where you are. Keep smiling and above all, be happy. Sending you all lots of loves and hugs. Dorothyxxxxxxxxxxx
