1 year / 18 month giveaway!

Cor blimey, how did that happen?   My little blog that I started after Felix was born, was actually one year old on the 8th of December!! Now, I can't even boast 100 posts cos this post is my 95th according to my Google dashboard, but still, I'm pretty proud that I made it this far...and since today is actually Felix's 18 month birthday, I thought I'd do what is customary and have a little giveaway.

The prize?  Hmmm..I've been thinking about this and because some of you like homemade and some of you like fabric (don't we all!) so I've decided to give away a two-pronged prize!

Part A) one of my make-up bags - like one of these..



I'll make this part of the prize to order so you can have some choice about what you get!

And part B - fabric!
- A generous fat quarter of  Melody Miller's Ladies, from the Ruby Star Rising Line


Two fat quarters of Lotta Jansdotter's line, cos I just ordered it from M is for Make and it's yummy!


Plus a half yard of this funky IKEA flower power fabric which is great for bags.


So, no hoops to enter, just leave a comment, and I'll pick the winner by some kind of random method after the 16th December. International entries welcome and followers get an extra entry if they like, just to say thanks for reading my waffle, but please don't feel obliged!

Oh, and as the timing is perfect, I'm also linking up with SewMamasew's giveaway day, so a big hello and welcome, if you're visiting from there!

Thanks for sticking with me/ visiting my blog!
