one year

During my blogging break I missed celebrating a whole year of blogging.
To be honest I really didn't think I'd stick at it this long, but I have. Mostly because I enjoy being part of a fab community of strangers who are friends! Its a bizarre situation and almost unexplainable to people who aren't involved......I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!!!
Also I noticed at the weekend I had 50 followers...now 54.....its lovely to think people want to read my blog :)
I must apologise though that I haven't visited everyone who has become a follower, not because I don't care, just that old chestnut 'time' again!! I do appreciate you visiting me :)
Over the past year, it has been fantastic to share things with people who 'get' it!! Where else can I take a pic of something frivolous and pretty and people actually want to look at it. Just as I love to visit other blogs and nose at all your crafting, pretty new purchases and beautiful homes.
I've probably said before that blogland proves that there are people left in the world who are nice! Swaps are proof of this, I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people, and I just love choosing and making for somebody who you just know is going to enjoy opening something handmade just for them...
So in honour of my sticking at something for a whole year and as a thank you for encouraging me to sew and craft more than I probably would, I shall have a giveaway.
I am making some more tea cup pictures - a bit like the one below that I made for bibbitybob.....it'll be the same...but different!!!
Just leave me a comment if you would like to take part and I'll randomly pic out a name in a weeks time.
Don't be shy, even if you have never commented before, say hello!!
