200 times I've gone blah , blah ,blah !



Have you noticed that of my now 200 posts the majority of them have the label of "not much ",
 I think that says a little about me !
I don't want to turn this into a mushy post but I would like to say a big thankyou to all who visit and take the time to comment , I do appreciate it .
I also want to thank the girls who send me naughty emails as they seem to come at times when I really need a big laugh .
 A huge thankyou to the girls I have become phone friends with as well ,
it feels we have been friends forever .
There you go , more blah , blah , blah !
 Let's get on with the giveaway .
200 posts is a biggie (to me anyway) so there will be 3 prizes .
1st entry drawn will be any 3 of my patterns .
2nd entry drawn will be 2 of my patterns ,
3rd entry drawn will be 1 of my patterns .
Now if you unsure of my designs and you would like to see them in more detail hop over to my shop .
Don't jostle in there ladies it is only a small shop , I'll wait for you here .
I'll just have a cuppa out of my new teapot
while admiring my new canisters both bought at Vinnies this week .

I hope you had a good look and still would like to enter the giveaway .
Just leave a comment please .
I hope to be back early next week with the winners and lots more blah , blah , blah !
