My Second Blogiversary Giveaway

On August 23rd, next week, it will be my second blogiversay.

Two years ago on that date I sat down and wrote out my first blog post.

You can read it HERE if you'd like to.

I had no idea back then that my blog would come to mean so much to me, and that I would make such wonderful new friends through blogging.

You have been completely amazing.  You have made me laugh, given such wonderful support, been fantastic friends and have brought so much sparkle and glitter into my life.


To say a huge thank you I'd like to host a giveaway.

Here's the prize...

A brand spanking new copy of Cath Kidston's fantabulous book "Sew!"

A couple of my friends in the States have mentioned that they can't get Cath Kidston, so I thought, well, if that's the case, maybe we can bring St. Cath of the Kidston to you by way of a giveaway. So, this giveaway is open to UK followers and all overseas followers to give you a chance to get some Kidston love.

Sew! is chock full of gorgeous ideas of things to make, with complete instructions and full sized paper patterns.  All you have to do is provide your own pretty material.
It is just lovely to sit and peruse over a pot of tea and a bikkie! 
I have my own well-thumbed copy of this book and made this little treasure from it a while back, do you remember?

Steve will pick the winner on Tuesday 23rd August, my blogiversay.

Good luck!
