CTTY Winner & A 'Fair Goodies' Giveaway...

Thank you so much to the ladies who linked up last week with Christmas Through The Year... you will be glad when December comes, to have a little collection of gorgeous gifties on hand!
The winner of this months little prize is *MARIA* ! Well Done Maria! I will be popping a little something in the mail for you...
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
In my last post, I mentioned about 'stay tuned'... well...
Among the things I bought at the Fair on Saturday, I also bought some things to
GIVE AWAY!
These two fq's were just too sweet & juicy to leave there, & I have added some other little things too.
(Sorry, the table topper is not part of the prize!)
All you need to do to enter this giveaway, is leave a Comment on this post... easy!
It's open internationally & I'll announce the winner on the 31st.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
So pleased to say I am still on track with the stitcheries for my 'Tis The Season' wall quilt...
this month I have stitched 'Elfin Sleigh'... he's obviously the strong silent type, having no mouth!
 It seems to be such a small thing to do as my plan for "1 Xmas Item A Month" this year, but it's very enjoyable to just work on a project bit by bit & see it slowly progress.
If you would like to get some inspiration for making Christmas things, pop over here, where you'll see the works of lots of Elves under the guidance of our Chief Elf Narelle.

Well, I'm off to do some blog reading & sewing today - yay the house to myself - it happens so rarely these days!

Love the elf stitchery. Your new light pad will be put to wonderful use I'm sure. I enjoyed your craft fair post - I actually went with a friend during the week. Neither of us had been for years. We both liked the Garden Party quilt - I'm excited that you'll be making it!

Your little elf is cute Anthea. They are such sweet stitcheries by Natalie. You'll be so pleased once you have done them all and made them into a little quilt (or whatever you decide to do).
