Me? I am giving TraderVic what he wants - I have promised to sit and watch his beloved Tigers play a footy match tonight. Romantic, hey?
I am taking part in the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Each of us taking part in the blog hop is given a Sweetheart photo at random, we post it on Valentine's Day and then we visit each other's blogs looking for our photo and make a comment when we find it.
Such fun! Here is the gorgeous heart pic I was given - I wonder who was the talented stitcher who made this?
You can check out all of the fun at Jo's blog Serendipitous Stitching.
Now, it is time to tell you all about the Travelling Treasures. This is a treasure trove of stitching goodness which is travelling around Australia. You can read all about it on Debbie's blog Sweet Little Cottage - where it all began last March - or you can click on the Travelling Treasures pic on the top right of my blog.
So, I was lucky enough to win the Travelling Treasures from Melanie of Pinnylea Creations.
Now, the idea is that you take a few gifts from the Treasures and add a few and then pass it on.
I am taking two items - this handy thread catcher and this gorgeous wall hanging.
.... and here is what I am putting in....
Fat Quarters from my stash in sunshiney yellow:
A Heart scissor fob:
Two Cross Stitch patterns - Birdhouse Row by Diane Arthurs and Cat lessons for People by Lizzie Kate:
Some sweet buttons from The Friendship Tree:
... and three skeins of my favourite hand-dyed thread from Cottage Garden Threads:
Now, to be eligible for the Travelling Treasures you need to live in Australia and have a blog (or a friend with a blog who will post for you) and just comment on this post to let me know you are interested.
I will keep this open until Tuesday, 18th Feb and announce the winner on Wednesday, 19th Feb.
Good luck everyone!
Don't forget to to join in the fun of my Grow Your Blog Party Giveaway, entries close on Feb 15th, you can join in the fun on this post. It closes tomorrow - when I will reveal not only the winners but what the actual gifts are! lol!
P.S. TraderVic's beloved Tigers are winning so far (it is half time) and look at the gorgeous Prairie Roses he bought me and he even remembered my favourite colour!
P.P.P.S The Tigers just lost - oh well, it was only a practice match!
