I'm going to be joining in on the fun, will you be?

Just recently, I popped in to see what was happening over at !Insights from SewCalGal and I noticed she was talking about National Quilt Day, and how she thought it should be International Quilt Day....OMG, how exciting.....SCORE.....I messaged, she messaged, and voila, the day is now extended to a weekend, to incorporate all the different time zones, so we can all be a part of it, and the clever lady made a button, which is over on my side bar.  But if you want to grab your own, click on the button below

If you want to read more about how you can help promote our special day/weekend, then please click HERE.

Have fun, and don't forget to enter her Blog Hop Party giveaway whilst you're there, if you're quick enough that is!

Oooops, I'm not sure what happened, but the buttons weren't linked properly, but they are now.  I've already made a couple of things....what will you be making?

I never knew this.....till today!

Did you know that you can type the following link into the address bar, and it'll show you if any images off your blog have been pinned on Pinterest?

Obviously you need to change it slightly once the page opens....but here's what I found had been pinned from my blog....quite interesting as they were not necessarily what I'd have pinned if I was a stranger visiting my blog lol

So there you have it, my little bit of knowledge for today!

Winners, Winners.....calling all winners.

Having done a quick head count over on FB (some people were unable to leave a comment, I couldn't work out why, so accepted their entries via my plugs for the giveaway on my wall), there were 30 names in the draw for the tablerunner, 22 for the pincushion and 21 for the keyring.....I did use to do the draw, got all excited and forgot to save the screenshot, then spent about 20 mins, trying to get the same numbers to come up again, but sadly it wouldn't, so you'll have to just take my word for it.

This person had a bit of a shock yesterday, but was an all round hero.....she helped keep a little girl calm, who'd been in a bus accident, that happened out the back of her house, so please, make sure you congratulate CHRIS H who is going to be the owner of the tablerunner.  Congrat's Chris xx

Next was the draw for the pincushion, and that goes to ROBIN of RS ISLAND CRAFTS...congratulations Robin xx

Third prize was the keyring/bag tag, and that goes to THE PATCH CRAFT congrat's hun xx

All winners have been emailed (at least they will have once I've published this post) and I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the entries.  Stay tuned, I'll be hosting more giveaways, and maybe even a sew-a-long a bit later in the year.
