Back from holidays and free pattern.

Hi everyone, I am back from my holidays and we all had a wonderful time!
I would just like to say thankyou for all the wonderful comments I received on my first
anniversary giveaway, I am delighted that so many of you liked it. I am currently replying to everyone who left a comment, however some comments do not permit me to respond because of the setting on your email reply.
I have visited all of your blogs and I must say I have seen some beautiful creations out there, you are all sooooo talented, I have found lots more inspiration.

Winners announced.....
Don't forget that I will not be announcing the winner until this Saturday (5 September ) as I am currently putting all the little bits of paper into a bowl!

Because so many of you commented I am contemplating adding a few more prizes, I may make some more rose pins but I will keep you all in suspense for now! Lol!
I am planning another giveaway, hopefully in time for Christmas, I hope you will all return for that and join in the fun.

My free pattern
As you can see I have posted the free pattern, it is the first time I have used my cross stitch programme so I really do hope you can download the picture, I really struggled to know what to do with it. My husband bought me a cross stitch design programme for my birthday in April and I am just about getting used to it - watch this space for more free cross stitch patterns.

Whilst I was away I bought a few things for my stash, I will be taking photo's this week to show you all. I bought some really pretty boxes that I have not seen in England, (I am certainly looking forward to decorating them) and I bought some fabric, it was so much cheaper in America.

Holidays and meeting Wendy
I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy from Wendy's hobbies blog, we had a lovely little meeting and exchanged gifts, I made a pinkeep and Wendy gave me a cross stitch kit, I will be posting pictures in my next post.
The weather was 95 degrees, phew it was too hot for me, I had the factor 30 sunscreen on, I am really fair skinned so I am pretty much the same colour as when I set off on my holidays! Lol!
When I am on the beach someone always says to me ''oh you are so fair skinned aren't you'' mmmm like I don't know already!!!!! If I had a pound (or a dollar) for every time I have heard that I would be rich!

Thankyou once again for all of your lovely comment's and encouragement, I will be back Saturday with the winners names!

Cute design, thanks for sharing.

Hi Lynn! Great freebie! If I were a coffee drinker, I'd be needing a coffee about now, but instead I am a Pepsi drinker and that is what I'm craving. I'm being good though and drinking water. Well, not actually drinking, but its sitting here should I feel the need for a drink!
I love the PS deer ornament/pillow you have pictured in the upper right corner of your blog. Very cute!
Happy blog anniversary!

Oh dear.. I got a blogger error when I tried to post my comment..

I just wanted to say welcome back! I hope you had a great time!

I was also wondering how to make the fimo clay roses? I think they're absolutely gorgeous, and found some clay at our local HobbyCraft a couple weeks ago and would love to learn out to make them!
