100 posts ~ must be a giveaway!

I've made it to 100 posts!

Taking a big breath.. I'm so glad Lucy encouraged me to blog. I love being part of this community.

It inspires me, I find great projects to work on, and I have even met some lovely bloggers in real life.

So thank you! And here is my giveaway. A little bag designed by Cinderbery Stitches, and a new pattern call Stitchers Trilogy (great for all those stitchers angels out there..) and a large pincushion made from my Amitie blog vip fabric mailout this quarter.

The kids think the pincushion looks like a big strawberry, but if you would like a free pattern for it, it can be found here.

Just leave a comment this week and on Friday 12 September is will ask Ayden to randomly pick a number. Yes Ayden - he will be back from his term at King Island on Thurday 11th September. (a big smile just thinking about it..)

Have great weekend everyone! x Rachel
