3!

*** The Giveaway is now closed***

Three years ago I began imposing my daily ramblings on the unsuspecting public.

I never imagined I would stick at it, and I certainly wouldn't have believed that so many people from all over the world would choose to stop by and take a took, and then come back time and again!

I definitely did not foresee the effect it would have on my life.  Fellow bloggers are the people I now call my best friends; I have met, virtually and in reality the most wonderful, inspirational and completely daft bunch of ladies and I want to thank every one of you who have made my sewing and fabric obsession seem completely normal.

So as is traditional, it's got to be giveaway time!!!

I have taken advantage of the slightly cooler evening and made these Liberty pretties already...


... and I will add some other bit and pieces from the weekend coming.

So let's go for one comment, one chance, no hoops.  It's too hot for hard work.

Just say something nice!  Simple as.

Make sure you add your email address is you are No Reply Blogger, or it could be your loss!


I will use Random.org to pick a winner in a week's time, Tuesday 23rd July 9pm BST, because I am going to be a little bit busy between now and then.

Open to all, but please do not expect a reply ;)

Good luck my friends xxx

  68. I believe I found your blog via sewmamasew's giveaway day or thru verykerryberry. I was struck by your rocket name. You are an amazing commenter - your names crops up on a lot of my favorite blogs. More importantly, i liked your voice -the uk-isms and the slight snarkiness.
    You also blog everyday and sew everyday which is amazing to keep up for three years!
    Finally, it's good to know recorder concerts are the same the world over.

    Congrats!

  97. I just received the Liberty Love book, so I've been having fun perusing and learning about Liberty fabrics! Your small items look so nice with the fabrics!

    Once I joined IG, I think that's when I realized the treasure of community that we have here - I don't have a lot of people around me ~irl~ so it's so great to have a supportive group online. So many new friends since I've started sewing again!! Congrats on 3 years, here's to more!
