Just a quick drive by to say hi and also to say a very big Thank You to Nancy and Mary Joan for their great giveaways that I won. Both parcels arrived in the mail on Friday.
Now lets have a look-see at what sweet stash additions I won...
1. Nancy at The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe has these amazing giveaways and I was lucky enough to win one of them. The giveaway prize was some gorgeous hand dyed flosses. Stunning colours! I love the oranges and purples, well love them all really! I now have to try and find just the right design to stitch so that I can use these lovely threads. Thank you Nancy!

Before I go a bit of blog maintenance...
There has been lots of chatter on blogs lately about the new word verifications and how hard they are to read. I have to agree with that especially when I am reading blogs on my iPhone. I often give up trying to leave comments as the words are just too hard to decipher! I have now taken word verification off my blog as well - at least I hope I have!! I did start to have a play with Bloggers new interface format but as I couldn't find the setting to turn off word verification I have now gone back to the original interface format. I think I will stay using the old interface format now.... it is much better and I can find my way around so much easier!!
Welcome to my new Followers! It is lovely to meet you and I look forward to catching up with your news as I wander around the Blogosphere!
I have also been reading that Google followers is possibly going to disappear at some point as well.... Most of the time it doesn't seem to work on my blog and at the moment the only place I can see my Followers is on the laptop - any other computer that I use just won't show them! I have now found another "Followers" widget called "Linky Followers" which I have decided to give a go. It is a free "Follower" system and hopefully it will work and stay around!! I have seen a couple of bloggers already using the system for their followers... now I just have to go back to their blogs and follow them through Linky! If you get a moment and would like to also follow my blog through "Linky" please do so. I will leave both systems in place until Google Followers disappears.... which may yet be a long way off!
Blog maintenance issues over and put away til next time! I will leave you with a lovely comment from my 6 year nephew!
6 year old to his Father: "Dad, when I grow up I want to be just like Poppy."
Father to 6 yo: "Why's that son?"
6 year old to his Father: "Because I want to be able to take my teeth out and hold them in my hand while I clean them!"
Out of the mouths of babes!
Til next time, happy stitching
