a winner, a thank you, a new day & a new friend

 Hello lovelies
I'm back
feeling a little battered and bruised by recent events
but also heartened and thankful
your kind words really and truly mean so much to me
I feel like I have been scooped up and given a huge hug
I feel so lucky
Thank you

x these are for you x

"Hello and welcome" to my new followers
it's so lovely to make new friends

Today is a fresh new day, the beginning of a fresh new week
so let's get on with it shall we?

The winner is .................... comment number 46
The lovely Daisy from Lazy Daisy Jones

I have only just met daisy
and am looking forward to getting to know her better
her blog is beautiful .... go take a peek
I will be in touch shortly Daisy
the Mollie makes Christmas book 
Master Wally Winterbird are yours!

I have a new friend
 a Bernina 330

sooooooooo excited
I gathered together my earnings
and splashed out!
we haven't had much time together just yet 
but on first impressions
we will get on like a house on fire
(now I've typed that it sounds a very odd saying, doesn't it?)
I will let you know how things go if you like

Well I hope you are managing to stay dry
the weather here in the UK is mostly VERY wet

Thanks again for your kind words

BIG love

  1. I am sorry I am only now catching up with your last couple of posts but I'll add a big, fat BOO to the nasty 'Anonymous' commenter. I sometimes think it would be good if Blogger did away with this option! The copying to sell is terrible - I was discussing that very issue with the writer of a crafty book on Saturday. It's probably no consolation, but the ones I've seen on Etsy (had to have a look) aren't a patch on yours...Hope this week is filled with exclusively nice things.

  2. Congrats to the winner. :)
    Oh I do love your new baby, how exciting ~ enjoy!!!!!
    This little corner of the UK is thankfully dry but very, very chilly!
    Happy Monday,
    Vivienne x

  3. (((hugs))) just read your last posts, what a silly comment, just ignore them if they can't even put a name! Your creations are amazing and I would be annoyed if I made such wonderful things only to have them sold by others. Your new machine is lovely and I'm sure you'll be the best of friends :) xx

  4. Ooh congratulations Daisy! Love your new friend Jooles, she looks very fancy :) glad you are feeling better too.
    Victoria xx

    And congratulations to Daisy of course!

  7. Congratulations to Daisy! I am glad you have perked up a bit now.I think it was so mean for someone to have a go at you like that, anonymously at that. Your makes are beautiful Jooles, such an inspiration, sadly my homemade stuff isnt a patch on yours but I do love to do it!

  8. Hello Jooles
    Thank you for the lovely flowers they brighten up a grey wet day
    ...congratulations to lovely Daisy!
    Now for your new acquisition she looks the business! I am sure you will get on just fine
    Happy Monday

  16. Congrats to the winner! Hope this new week is much, much better for you xx

  17. Jooles, I'm appalled that someone could call you Mercenary and leave such a nasty comment. When you made the gorgeous bunting for my daughter you were so lovely and understanding why I hadn't paid as my mum was so ill at the time. It reminds me of the saying 'If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!' Love Sharon X

  18. Congratulations to the winner, you lucky girl!
    Jooles I love your new machine, enjoy using her xx

  19. Lucky winner!!!
    Looking forward to seeing your first projects made with your new machine.....

  20. OOOOOOh Jooles Just sat down to check up on the givaways and update my side bar thingy and Hurrah I won!!! Luck lucky me!
    will nip over to my emails and contact you,
    bestest wishes ever
