Look what I've won!


Well the last couple of days have actually been a bit rubbish... Nothing major, just lots of little things seem to be going wrong! Mainly my sewing machine which after 8 years of being good as gold, now seems to be on the blink. Have spent a long time faffing about changing fuses and lightbulbs, with a couple of heart stopping moments when I thought it had packed up for good! It is working at the moment, but for how long is anyone's guess. Yesterday I also managed to hit myself in the face with the freezer door, broke my favourite unpicker and got rained on when I went to the Post Office, so not a great day in all. However, there was one thing to cheer me up in my times of woe... this cute little hamster!



A couple of weeks ago, I entered a giveaway on Emma Thomsen's blog It's All About The Fabric. It was an unusual giveaway as the challenge was to work out what a 2D pattern would make when it was all sewn up. To be honest, I'm not very good with patterns, and I quite often just make things up as I go along. My guess (and it was a complete random guess) was a mouse... and it turns out this was the closest to the correct answer, which was a hamster! So Emma has very kindly made up this little chap for me. It is all handsewn and you can really see all the care and attention that has gone into making it; such a cute and thoughtful giveaway prize, so thank you very much Emma! x

You hit yourself in the FACE with a freezer door??? That's a special kind of skill! :) xx

p.s. If it makes you feel any better I bit my lip in the summer when I bent down to have a sniff of some washing that had been out on the line and got a bit too close to the chair it was all sitting on... but it was such a daft thing to do I had to have a little chuckle to myself.

Haha, yes it's true, I managed to hit myself in the cheek with the corner of the freezer door! I meant to open the fridge section, but evidently pulled the freezer bit instead! hurt a lot:( it was kind of funny in a way though, such a stupid accident!! x

Thanks for Blogging the Hamster, he looks so handsome 'on film'! I'm glad he cheered your day up! And again, thank you so much for your patience. :)

He's so cute! Would put a smile on anyone's face after a bad day :D I'm sorry to hear you're having so much trouble with your sewing machine, maybe you need to put a new one on your Christmas wish list this year!
