A Winner

Well I am back, a little later than expected but back anyway.  Sorry for the delay, I hurt my back yesterday and my only thought was pain management.

Now we only had 2 commenters on the Traveling Treasures Giveaway

This is what they were playing for

So I have to draw a winner. There wasn't much of an ask for Mr Random Number Generator so I tossed a coin.

Heads = Creative .1
Tails = Cheryll

 That is Tails.  So  CONGRATULATIONS CHERYLL.  I will email you for your snail mail address.

Thank you both Cheryll and Creations.1, I appreciate your entries.  For anyone else who is interested in Travelling Treasurers, watch Cheryll's blog for information on when she will pass it on.

A travelling Giveaway

Earlier this month I was the lucky winner of the Travelling Treasurers Giveaway by Jenny of Elefantz posted about here.

This parcel was started by Debbie from Sweet Little Cottage and I was the 4th person to have the 'Treasure' visit them.

When the parcel arrived at my place from Jenny of Elefantz, it contained these treasures
A piece of handkerchief linen, 2 lovely patterns, a set of 3 flower buttons, a gumboots fat quarter, a Christmas panel and some cute Christmas trim
 I decided to keep the Handkerchief Linen, Christmas trim a sewing pocket pattern and the cute gumboot fabric.
 I have replaced this with a 
"Kit in a Card" Treadle sewing machine stitchery kit; 
2m of cotton lace
a fat quarter of French General fabric.

so when you pop it with what I left in the parcel
A Christmas panel, a Jenny of Elefantz pattern and a set of 3 flower buttons

 You get this yummy looking stash.
This photo below is what the next person will receive as their Travelling Treasure.

Would you like to be the next participant in Travelling Treasures??
You MUST have a blog.
You MUST take what you want from the parcel.
You MUST replace it ensuring there are at least two patterns and one fat quarter in the parcel.
You MUST run the giveaway/handover on your blog.
You MUST have it posted on your blog at the beginning of August.
(This is meant to run month by month.)
If you can do all of that, leave me a comment on this blog post and I'll draw a winner next Monday 8th July 2013. Then I can post the parcel to you in time for the next monthly travel.
I am excited to see where this parcel will travel.  Unfortunately this parcel is going to remain in Australia, so Australian entries only please.
Good Luck and share the love with your friends.

My head is in a whirl and I am missing sewing

Well I mentioned I am in a whirl.
We are buying OUR FIRST HOME
and it is finally unconditional, so as of 12 July this lovely house will be ours

So I have not managed much sewing.

I did finish a few fiddly tasks though.

This ugly chair belongs to the Special Education Unit at our school
 It needed some washable covers, so after sitting on my sewing table waiting for  a strap, here they are.
Flowers on the snow
 and frogs on the pond
 they are a happy and practical solution.

Next a fun "lets just see' project to do on Tuesday nights at craft.

Square in a square


Stitched into a flimsy on display at my market stall
This photo is just to make you smile.
Check out all the quilts on board HMAS Toowoomba - Aussie Hero quilts. How cool
and another Tshirt transformation for my T.
Pop back in the next 24 hours.  I am hosting a Travelling Treasures giveaway and I will tell you how to enter.
