When I started this blog in 2008 it was really just a way to connect with my family who at the time were living nearly 300 miles away.

I wanted to share with them our progress as we knocked our home into shape, and photos of the children following the adoptions.

I had no idea that I’d still be doing this 400 posts later, even though my family all now live within 2 miles of me!

I hadn’t anticipated that anyone else would read my ramblings, or that I’d connect with so many talented women all over the world.  Women who inspire me to be a better and more creative person.

So to say thank you for being there for me I’m excited to hold this, my first ever, giveaway:

This is the Lazy Daisy Shawlette by Orange Flower Patterns knitting in Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in hot pink.

It’s so soft and cosy.

And it’s could be keeping your neck toasty warm this winter.
