I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Wonderful people and some fantastic giveaways

Well, hello again....

It feels like a very long time since I was last here, and it's even a longer time since I did some blog "stalking".  There are over a 1,000 blogs in my Google Reader... oh my goodness, how did I ever get so far behind! 

The answer is easy - I have been so busy at work over the last few weeks that I haven't had time to spend me customary 1/2 hr or so at lunchtime catching up on everyone news, and the weekends I have been too tired to even turn the computer on.  So, today I have been making a very concerted effort to catch up and visit as many blogs as possible.  And I will do some more catching up tomorrow...

While visiting blogs today I have seen that there are some very lovely people out there having the most wonderful giveaways.  I have posted links to some of the ones that I found below:

Giveaway Number 1:
Bec at Bec's Cross Stitch Creations is celebrating achieving 100 followers by having a lovely giveaway.   Lots of lovely things including a really pretty stitched biscornu and bookmark. Wander on over and sign up before she announces the winner on Friday 29th July 2011 (Aussie EST).


Giveaway number 2:
I found this blog today via Joyce's blog (Random Ramblings).  Measi at Measi's Musing: Ramblings of a Geeky Witch is having a summer fun giveaway.  Why not pop in and visit Measi and sign up for her giveaway.  If you also post a mention of her giveaway on your blog she will enter you for a second time in the draw.  This giveaway ends on 31st July with the winner being announced on 1st August.


Giveaway number 3:
It's party time over at Lady of the Floss.  Gabi is having a giveaway to celebrate her blogoversary. The giveaway is a gift voucher of $100 to spend at Anita's Little Stitches!!!  $50 of the giveaway has been sponsored by Anita.  What an amazing giveaway, you could have lots of fun spending the dollars at Anita's on-line store.  Again if you mention Gabi's giveaway on your blog she will enter you a second time in draw. 


Giveway Number 4:
Ok, for all you quilters out there why not have a look at Lily Pad Quilting.  They have this seriously amazing giveaway - there are fabrics, gift vouchers, needles, thread, tools, and the list goes on.  (Hubby, take note you must enter this one!)


Hope everyone enjoys the weekend, will see you all again soon.  Must go and pick up hubby from the train station!

Til next time happy stitching,
