Thank you and a giveaway

I thought it was about time to have a giveaway, and when I checked my list of posts, I realised that it was my 6-month blogiversary a couple of weeks ago, so what better reason?

Writing this blog has been a lot more enjoyable than I'd expected. Not many of my "real-life" friends are crafty, so I really enjoy the contact I've made with a community of super-talented, inspiring people. I read and appreciate each of your comments, even though I don't always have time to respond to you individually.

So to say thank you, I'd like to host my first giveaway. This sweet little cat has been keeping me company on my sewing table for a couple of weeks, but it's now time for her to go to another home. She is made from new and thrifted cotton, denim and acrylic felt. Her face is embroidered and she is filled with polyfill. She is willing to travel anywhere in the world to her new home.



If you would like to go in the draw, please leave a comment below. I will draw a random number next Monday, May 28th.
