Drum Roll Please...

Now I know you're all going to think I cheated here, but honest I didn't. The winner of the grand prize giveaway is that completely barking mad Monkee Maker. A shoe-box of goodies is on its way as we speak - hope you like them. You'd better, the blooming postage was a fortune!

Just in case you don't trust me though, I pulled another random name out of the hat (actually it was a glass dish) - so Daisie if you send me your address, I can put prize number 2 in an envelope (no Daisie, I am not sending you my FCS, you need to finish yours!)

And you all know how I love clever knitting don't you? Well this little bag is cleverness itself. Shadow knitting. I love it, but blimey, it was a bit of a nightmare remembering how and when and where. I made this ages ago, pretty don't you think? (No Monkee Maker, this is not in the shoe box. This is mine. All mine.)

Has anybody out there bought the new Kaffe Fassett book? Or the new one from Martin Storey? If so, let me know what you think, I'm wondering whether to treat myself as a blog birthday present. Or should I just stick with the wild and wacky needles from Harmony? Will they be available at Ally Pally, or do I sweet talk Clara into posting me some over here?

Decisions, decisions. I'm too tired to be decisive tonight, someone else please choose for me.

A shoe box of goodies?? How exciting!

Hope I really was first out of the dish and you didn't just take pity on RBD1 for not having a home-made birthday cake! (or for having me as a Mum)

Thanks so much Michaela, and a message to our postman/lady :"HURRY UP!!"

Congratulation to Monkee Maker : )

ps: Take it from me, when Michaela sends a shoebox of goodies - it really is a treat!

ps: M - Place your order, I'm happy to send anything you'd like. (Well, maybe not too happy if I was asked to send TLG...)

Thanks for your comment on my blog - a pirate morning with little ones sounds like great fun :o) I work with teenagers - sometimes they're great, but other times I find myself wishing they were a bit smaller and significantly less stroppy (although I know littlies can sometimes be just as stroppy in different ways!)

Fab package sent to Monkee Maker!

Heavens to Mergatroid - I'm STUFFED!! That heavenly chocolate creation is too moreish!

It's such a good job that I don't live at your house - I reckon I'd be the size of it before long!

Thanks so much Michaela, I'm loving the goodies .... oops, chocolate on the keyboard again
