shhhh, its a little giveaway

This is what I did in 2007.

I am not sure what 2008 will bring in my craft world. I have ideas (and doubts) but I'll keep you posted.


Arriving very very late to the party, I have just signed up and organised bloglines, seriously!!! What was I thinking, checking all my favourite (over 80) blogs every day.........it took so long. Now I just check in and read the blogs of people who have updated. I can't believe I didn't do this months ago. It also means I have added more new blogs to my ever growing list.

I have been having a bit of sewing time - I popped over to Flower garden the other day to make bags. Annie's daughter and our other craft friend Sue was there, we each made a bag.





It's not hard to guess which is mine is it?

I am determined not too keep everything stored in the sewing room this year so this little bag is up for grabs. Just leave a comment today and I'll pop back this evening or in the morning and choose a winner at random.

Ok enough with the teapots I know - this is the last one I promise.

  4. I agree, the teapots are fantastic, as is the bag. I'm really struggling to find sewing time lately.

    That has to change!

  7. Wow, look at all those things you did/made! And there can never be too many teapots! I've got your tutorial on my list - I love them, and the girls will too (and one of them will go beautifully with the chenille cupcakes and cake). I just got onto bloglines about three weeks ago too - it makes such a difference! A huge time-saver!

  17. Ooh ooh, I don't want to miss out this time, so please count me in (if I'm not too late already!)

    I too haven't sorted out any bloglines and spend ages clicking on blogs to see if they've posted .... maybe sorting that ought to be my New Year's resolution.

    The photo montage looks fab, btw.

    :)

  19. I don't think I'd get any housework done if I didn't have bloglines. Plus it stops you looking like a stalker on your favourite blogs. The New Idea bag is so cute.

  27. My mother collects teapots and having this tutorial is going to make birthdays so much better. I appreciate all the "trial and error" that went into this. I also have a nearly 6 year old who has decided that she NEEDS one or five. Hope your year stays creative.

  31. I'm going to try making one of these teapots for my Mother-in-law (ok, and maybe one for myself). I'm also wondering if it would be possible to make one into a pin-cushion.....but I don't think I'm clever enough to figure that one out lol!

    Happy new year!

  32. I need to get on with bloglines too...it woul save me a job every day, and therefore I could spend more time doing real life things, like parenting!!!! I love the bag (I want to win!!) and I am going all gooey and quite pathetic over that spotty teapot, red and white spots has that effect on me, y'know!
