Lovely Stripes

Happy Handmade Monday everyone!  It's that time of the week again already!  

The followers free prize draw closed on Friday night and bright and early on Saturday morning I drew a name out of a hat.  And the winner is.... (drum roll...) ... Mick from Shpangle!!!  I contacted Mick over the weekend and he requested a cat bookmark so here it is ready to be posted this morning.  I hope he likes it.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for me on Enterprise Nation.  I reached my target on Saturday.  I actually have 6 votes more than I need!  It's a shame I can't transfer the extra votes to one of the other applicants...  Anyway I should be getting my money in the next couple of days and will have my shiny new sewing machine by the end of the week!  Woo!  If you have a bit of time free and would like to help out a fellow crafter it's worth visiting the Enterprise Nation site.  It's so simple to do and it means a lot to the applicants.

Today it's all about stripes and everything on my blog today can be bought off Etsy.
