And the Winner is . . . . !

Firstly thanks to everyone for entering my Giveaway - I appreciate it! Last night I got 'Little S' to pull a name out of a hat and the winning entry was  . . . ta  dah . . . Claire of Sweet Birdy Love - which is quite funny, but not a fix in any way I can assure you!! (we happen to be good bloggie-friends) - that's the way the cookie crumbles as we say - I will be getting to work on your 'tweedie' hearts Claire, as soon as . . . .  :) :)  

Thanks again to everyone for entering - I will try and do another one in the near future, and many congrats to Claire - I think I have your address details but I will be in touch anyway!

It's back to business as usual in more ways than one, 'Teenage Son' is back to school now that study leave and exams are all over - I will miss having him around during the day, I'm convinced my creativity had gone up a notch while he was around - just hope it doesn't take a nose dive now : /  'Little S' has taken my camera to  school today as they are doing a photography workshop this week - please everyone pray for it's safe-keeping and return - I have everything crossed today, Oh crikes!!

Never mind, here's some photos I took earlier - I hope I'm not showing the last of them!  Some more scrappy brooches from last week . . . 


Some wild flowers and some cultivated bluebells (self-seeded on the roadside from my neighbours garden!) picked last week on a walk out to the moor-road.  I collected them in anticipation of receiving some Harris Tweed in the post which I'd ordered earlier in the week - the colours in the tweed are not far off from the colours of these flowers, it's simply deeeeeeeeeelicious!!!!  It actually arrived a  couple of days later and I'm still drooling over it, hehe :)


It's lilac, lavender, mauve - whichever colour you call it - and I'm really looking forward to using it - but a little scared of cutting into it.  I have a little custom order from a work friend, which I think will look fantastic in this tweed though - so I have a good excuse to dive in to it!

When I looked out the kitchen window this morning there were 2 bunny rabbits sitting in my neighbour's croft - if you look closely you  can see one under each fencepost (to the far left and the far right of the pic) - they were like little sentry rabbits, exactly the same size - too cute! . . . 


Here's a wobbly close up of one of them . . ,. 


Well, I'd better get back to work and domesticities this morning - I may  be a little scarce this week as my Big Sis is visiting, Little S has commandeered my camera! and I have a craft fair in a couple of weeks (I hope!).   

Bye for Now

Oh yippee, I know just where I am going to hang that tweedie garland ♥♥♥.....Thanks Alison and Little S...

Your scrappy brooches look great, the colours are lovely. Sounds like you have a busy week planned with your sister visiting and a craft fair. Maybe you could give your sister a needle and thread and she could help with a bit of stitching, hehe....

Your new tweed sounds lovely, can't wait to see what you make with it. Be brave, take a deep breath ✂ ✂ away.....

Cute bunnies, as long as they stay clear of your garden. There were 3 little bunnies having a fine time in the moonlight when I headed off to work this morning....yes, it was very early.
