Hello again! What's this I hear you say, 2 posts in as many days! (Well, truth be known it is really 2 posts in 1 day... I have just cheated and used the post options to schedule this post to pop up in your readers at 9am Saturday morning! I do so love that feature :o)
Ok dear readers, so what's this title about - more Giveaway Wins for me! Yep, that's right this lucky little doer has won not one but two giveaways this week!!
Firstly, I had an email from Nancy at The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. Nancy has had a number of giveaways running which I have been entering in an attempt to win some of her gorgeous hand-dyed threads, kits, etc. Well, guess what - I won!! So what did I win - I won part of Nancy's Valentine's Day giveaway - 10 skeins of lovely hand-dyed floss. Ooh, I so can't wait to see this turn up in the post box. I will have to put my thinking cap on and try and find the perfect projects to stitch with these special threads. Thank you Nancy.
So after doing a happy dance about the lovely floss from Nancy, I then had an email from Mary Joan at Mary Joan Stitching. Mary Joan had a giveaway to celebrate her 4th Blogoversary. The giveaway was a selection of 7 lovely charts/booklets from her stash. And yes! I won this one too.... Oh my goodness, double happy dance! There are some lovely Christmas charts in the stash additions she is sending which I can't wait to get my hands on! Thank you so much Mary Joan.
How excited am I this week - two giveaway wins and two delightful packages on their way to my little post box. February has been a good month :o)
I have been thinking about a giveaway myself but so far I haven't come up with a cunning plan.... but in the stew and fog that is supposed to be my brain an egg of a plan is beginning to hatch! So as they say in all the good editorials - watch this space. I just can't guarantee how long you will have to watch for?!?!!?
Now speaking of giveaways, I have been updating my sidebar with giveaways as I see them, but I am a bit behind with my blog maintenance this month so I think I have missed one or two... sorry. But hopefully I can get back to regular maintenance plan soon! I know that there are some great giveaways out there at the moment - Nancy at The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe has regular giveaways and currently has a couple of different ones going on as we speak.
Remember I mentioned that Kaye from Kitten Stitching did a post where she asked everyone what she was dressed up like and I had guessed correctly that she looked like a Gondolier. Well, the little gift arrived from Kay this week. She sent me a lovely Laura Ashley shopping bag, a Lizzie Kate chart, and 2 momento's from her trip to Hawaii. So sweet - thank you so much Kay. I will enjoy using them all and think of you often :o)

But... while at the moment I don't have a photo to hand of some strange places I have found the cats asleep - like Oscar curled up in the bathroom sink in the middle of the night! - I do have a couple of photos that I took of Felix on Friday. I had the feather duster out as I was doing some dusting - now please don't fall off your chairs - yes I did do some dusting! Housework and I don't agree with each other but occasionally we do have to live and work together!!
I had finished wrapping the duster around the venetian blinds a few times and came into the kitchen to make a much needed cup of tea and left the duster on the kitchen bench. Next time I saw it, the duster was on the floor with the tea towel and Felix was playing with it..... and subsequently sneezing!

Well that's it for another post! Hopefully March will be a month of more regular posts and blog maintenance and lots more stitching!
Til next time, happy stitching
