Giveaway time!

It's time I hopped on the bandwagon! I have been the very lucky recipient of a number of giveaways recently and I have decided it's time to give some karmic goodwill back! However someone with a much broader following base as me has kindly offered to 'host' the giveaway, so go on over to The Clip Cafe for all the details.

Up for grabs is two little drawstring bags, his and hers for little people, if you like. Featuring giraffes and elephants, these bags are lined and big enough for those must have treasure when out and about!

Thanks to The Clip Cafe for doing a little interview with me after the Softie Swap and doing all the actual work on the giveaway! Well, all bar the sewing of the little items you see here that is!

Bullion embroidery bits and pieces, ideas needed!

In my previous life where I had copious amounts of time and patience, I did wool embroidery on baby blankets. Then I ventured into some bullion embroidery, and this was the result. The 4 pics are on one bassinet size woolen blanket piece in each corner, and the plan was to add another 4 designs on each side and one in the middle. I ran out of steam. So now the blanket is a bit sparse as is, so am wondering what I could do with these little panels if I were to cut the blanket up. Dolly blankets? Sew them onto the belly of a little bear? Any ideas graciously considered!
