"Congratulations."

Hello,

Congratulations to Anthea, who is the winner of the "Tending the Garden" present. Anthea has won a $20.00 voucher to spend at Bunnings. Now I know Anthea tells me that she doesn't have green thumbs.  I 'm sure Anthea will be able to pick up some storage items for her craft room or something similar.

If the winner was from overseas I was going to arrange a on-line voucher to a sewing related store. With the postal charges going up all the time I thought this was the way to go. You sometimes pay more in postage than the actual parcel is worth.

I haven't had much time to sew with all the gardening going on but I did manage to try out some machine embroidery samples that I had downloaded from the net. It is always best to test these before doing them on a project. Tensions etc can be a bit tricky sometimes. I will be putting some of these in the post for Fiona today. I am not sure if you will ever see them on her blog!

Happy days.
Bev.

Hi Bev,
Thanks for sharing Fiona's blog. I enjoy see what other crafters are doing. Always inspirational.

Tension is very important, I've learned the hard way. Even with different decorative stitches. I'm enjoying some sewing projects at the moments. Hope you will be finished soon with your garden work so you can play in your sewing room.
Have a wonderful Day. Blessings.

Hello Bev,

I see you have been very busy this past Winter. As I was glancing thru you older post I saw the most incredibly beautiful Rose cake I have ever seen in my life. What a talented lady she is..

Have fun doing your Winter Gardening. As always you had some beautiful flowers in your garden..

The book mark is very unique.

Happy Spring to you. Hugs Judy
