March Already!

Well, don't know about you guys but it doesn't seem five minutes since Christmas, or is it just me getting old?  No, please don't answer that.

I have been lucky and won another giveaway, I won a $50 gift certificate in Patsy Thomson's Anniversay giveaway.  Here is what I ordered



Tidings by Nancy Halvorsen and its yummy!!  Thank you Patsy for such a generous giveaway, I absolutely love it.

I also received some books yesterday that I ordered from Play.com you can get some really good deals through the Playtraders that sell through Play.com.  These books cost me between 4 and 5 Euros each including delivery, they may not be the most recent but they still have some lovely patterns and ideas and I am well pleased.



There is also a giveaway over at Vignette in Stitches I won one of the magazines in the last giveaway and I am certainly entering this one, it's for 15 FQ of  Where the Wind Blows by Melly Hurlston.


Would so like to add this to my stash.

It's turned really cold here again, it's like winter has returned, we are off this afternoon to a local woodyard to collect another metre of wood, hope this is the last we are going to have to buy ...... I really want to see that sunshine soon.

Thought I would give you a quick update on Sam.  He is doing really well, the hair has now completely grown again on his back and derriere, he is showing no side effects from his two operations...oh except for a good one.....he now doesn't find Lady "attractive" any more  - if you get my drift!!!!

Enjoy your day wherever you are and whatever you may be doing.

Hugs Linda xx

Love your choice of fabrics from your win. Have fun with them. And of course good luck in the next comp! Great idea with the book purchases, too. Looks like you have lots to keep you very busy for a little while.

You selected some wonderful fabric! I look forward to seeing what you will create with it. The books may not be a brand new publication but they look like they have some great projects. Glad to hear Sam is doing well and has lost some of his amorous feelings.
