Giveaway Update, SAL and Stitching

Hi everyone...sorry I've been away. It has been a week and a half.

Anyways I have decided on my giveaway prize to be drawn September 14th (as long as I remember rofl).  The Prize will be a gift voucher for either Sew and So or 123 Stitch depending on the winners choice.

All you have to do is like the blog, comment either on this post, or the previous post for one entry.
Share the giveaway on your blog/fb page for a second entry.  On the 14th I will put everyone's name into a hat (or names if you get more than one entry) and draw the winner.

Simples...and who doesn't love a bit of online retail therapy!!

The Halloween SAL is going well.  Here is a small selection of some the stitching wonders I have had photos of so far.  There are several free charts as part of the SAL and a competition to stitch and name a lots to keep people busy. I hope you  enjoy seeing them !

There are two witches, so some stitched for the pair and some stitched for just the one (shhhhh Shebafudge).....

And look at what is all finished up!
Yup, the maids.  Thank you a million times Elaine, super model stitcher extrodinaire!!!

And together they will look like this: 

These were a begger to design: lots and lots of detail in a little itty bitty space rofl.  Stitch size (approx) in inches
14 Count = 3.6 x 5
16 Count = 3.1 x 4.6
18 Count = 2.8 x 3.9

Right well today has been a bit of a strange one.  My son's 'free' education cost us another 200 plus euros (over 600 spent so far) and I had some amazing news which is wonderful but I can't share it with you yet.  And no, I am not pregnant.  Don't look innocent..I know at least one of you had that thought spring straight to mind!  It is a biggee though and whilst I was celebrating earlier, I think I'm in shock now.  I will have to sit down with a glass of wine and my stitching to get my head around it.

To celebrate I am having a 25 percent sale on my etsy shop with an added bonus if  you spend over 6.00 euros  (assuming I got the codes right rofl)...right. is calling.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Chat soon hopefully xxx
