Holiday Freebie

I am officially on holiday :-)

This morning I had a haircut and went shopping for new make-up and pyjamas and I spent the afternoon putting holiday notices in my shops...I decided to leave them open so people can still order if they like, but I won't be posting any parcels until I'm back, which is 6th October!

Tonight John and I are off for a celebration dinner with a group of friends (3 birthdays in one week!) and then on to the comedy club in Brighton, and tomorrow we'll be packing and then driving down to Dorset....we're so excited :-)

I've decided to have a complete break and am not taking any sewing with me *gasp* but I did manage to squeeze in a little bit of sewing today, and I made a freebie prize ....

SO if you'd like to enter & try and win an owl brooch just leave a comment on this post ...I will pick a winner when I come home, so you have a whole week to enter.

See you later alligators!

Oh Sarah, he is so cute and reminds me of my childhood in the 70's. Where did you get the fabric??
