Happy Sewing Birthday To Me :)

As hinted back a few days ago, I am now about to announce a surprise for not me but my readers.

Its my sewing birthday today........... yay!!!!!!

I am 1 year old today as on the 9th of December 2008 I bought my very first sewing machine and sent my family into a spin. My loving hubby into shock as he thinks I'll never complete another jumper for him ever again....lol

In the last 12 months I have not only found a passion I didn't know I had, but also learnt you can teach a young dog new tricks.....

Twelve months later I belong to the most fantastic sewing group and I love you girls so much.

I have joined a great forum who have supported me and watched me grow as I learn new tricks. They are kind in their advice when I post photos of where I go wrong. Love you gals too.

Thank you also to you, my readers. For your comments and support over the last 12 months.

So now the speech is finished lets unwrap a present.

Naaa...... lets sing a song first....you ready???

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday dear Lucky....

Happy birthday to me.


Okay what is in the give away........

Behind door 1 is


Ricrac and ribbon. A wonderful embellishment for those little or big projects.


Door 2




Buttons and a lacy butterfly. You are very honoured to get 1 of those butterflies as it took me 11 months to find them.


Door # 3



Woolen yarn..... maybe for a doll you have made.


Door number 4




Fat 1/4s and note 1 of them is green. I love green material. Love animal material and farmyard and flowers and oh heck the whole darn quilting shops material.


Need something to store the goodies in as they are mailed to you????? Course you do.





I made you a little bag to keep them all tidy until they get to your place. Then you can use it to store what ever you want in it.

Mine sits by me when I am sewing in the lounge room in the evening or on my sewing room when working in there. My sister Deb made me a beautiful green one for my birthday back earlier this year.

Like my present I don't get to keep???

If you would like to win it, its so easy.

Post a comment for an entry, on this post only.

Post my give away with a link to it, on your blog and let me know, so I can check......thats entry #2.

If you become a follower that would be real cool....... and for that another entry.

So all up you can enter 3 times.

I'm going to pull out a winning name on the 17th of this month.

So all the best and remember....

Your only limited by your imagination.

Liz to post a link back to me is easy:0)

Write a spill about my give away and copy and paste the post from the address bar when my blog is pulled up. Then go along the bar of icons on your blog page when you are writing about what ever and click on the link to the right of the "T" and colour box. Post my page address in the box and the link is there:)

Good luck and thanks for entering.

Congratulations and Happy Sewing Birthday. Since i have found blogging i have read your blog when i get on and blog hop. I have enjoyed seeing the joy that you have had from your machine and just love how you have come along and your sewing has grown. I look forward to 2010 and seeing what you create. With that i had better get on over to my poor blog and tell people to come and see you.
Big Hugs
