squishy mail and giveaway.....

I tested a pattern for a bloggy friend - I had a great deal of fun doing it and it served me well, given I had already planned to make a quilt for a friend who has just had a baby..........so, win/win all round...........but Joan upped the ante!!!

I found this beautiful package in my postbox......

A beautifully printed pattern, enough fabric to make it (with thread too!) and a beautiful journal - how incredibly generous - thank you Joan - I keep petting the fabric and I have already popped the journal in my bag - it's an ideal size to take with me whenever I'm on the go - one never knows when one will get a scathingly brilliant idea!!

Now, I already have the pattern - obviously I needed to know what to test - so I'm thinking it'd be an ideal giveaway to share the love :)

Don't forget to jump onto Joan's blog to have a look around and to see the pattern made up 3 ways.

If you'd like to be in the draw to win the pattern only (sorry, I'm keeping the fabric and journal!!), please leave a comment on this post - mmmm, a theme for the comments - tell me what your latest surprise was.......entries close on Friday 3rd August at 12 noon EST and I'll do the Random thing when I get home from school - good luck :)


  1. Love this pattern! Now you have me singing "We're going to the Zoo,zoo,zoo, how about you,you,you?" which is what my parents used to sing whenever we went up to the Melbourne zoo when we were kids:)

  2. My latest suprise has been the joy I have had in coordinating the FB page Rainbow Charms Squares and More swaps!. It is wonderful talking to so many ladies from around the country who sew.. and get such delight from sharing. Also the generosity has give me the warm and fuzzies ;)
    All the best Sally.
    PS come join in our group!!

  3. My latest surprise was my hubby arriving home a day early. I had been at work, arrived home in the dark and he was inside sitting on the stairs when I entered the house. I got a bit of a fright but a nice one:):) A huge surprise as he had been away for weeks.

  4. My latest surprise was a £25 premium bond win last month!!
