Saturday Snippets and ..A GIVEAWAY!!

Early this morning, I was playing around with some small, pale green doilies and an old vintage embroidered tablecloth.
I cut around the embroidery...
I was not really sure what I was doing to be honest!
I think I was still laughing about the last blog post...LOL ;-)
I covered three pegs , found a selection of Easter ish/pastel papers
And thought...ah well what about an Easter giveaway!
So...just comment on this post and I'll get my mate 'Mohammed' to draw a winner on Monday evening!
;-)
The winner will get a pack of 20 scrapbook papers and...
a FQ of this Easter fabric..'A tisket a tasket'
Great for Easter crafts / cards etc!
I have two spare packs for sale (including the FQ), if anyone wishes to buy one.
£4 PLUS £1 p and p.
I scampered off to Exeter to see if there was any clue as to what would be taking up residence in The Orange Tree...!
Nothing!
Arriving home to my mail, I have to say that this softened the disappointment...



And I continue to live in hope!

Just read your last post...how funny but so true!!! Keep Terry away from the PC..LOL!!! How nice to have the new catalogue.... she's stopped sending me them...think she's seen my bank account! Not sure about the new laptop... I guess it takes time to get used to things.... I can't get my calendar on the new one & I'll be lost without it... I won't know if I should be working!! :) x

Oh, I can't wait to find out what shop comes in, even though I was totally incapable of thinking of a British shop which might be worth suggesting. I've just had a thought - I'll sugest a French one! How about L'Occitaine, which is a very nice local firm made good, selling lavender and violet-based organic skin products? I'll got for them.

I would love to be in your giveaway Sal. The papers look lovely as does the fabric. I wonder what the shop will be?
