Ever so occasionally, someone bursts - or rather, pootles - onto the blog scene and you instantly like the cut of their jib. Do you know what I mean? Exactly a year ago, I popped over to thank a new follower, Kate, for a lovely comment she'd left for me. She'd just published her first crochet post on her own brand new blog, Just Pootling. One look at that blanket, and the fact she made me laugh, and I was smitten!
Kate held a giveaway to celebrate her first bloggiversary recently and I won!
It was a little like Christmas when the parcel arrived. I leapt on each item like an excited child. Look at those gorgeous wash cloths! And the yarn! And a Tulip Etimo crochet hook - my favourite!
Thank you again Kate. I'm so extremely glad you're here in Blogland.

A Little Happy Place is a fairly new-to-me blog and it's a joy. Sarah recently published an absolutely super patchwork bag tutorial which I bookmarked instantly - it's one of the best sewing tutorials I've ever come across. Up for grabs was the actual bag she made. I was tickled pink to win that too!
Sarah also has a fabulous online fabric shop and the darling girl kindly included a few extras.

Right-o. I'm having a bloglet break for a month. Just to regroup and stuff. We may squeeze in a beach holiday too!
I'll be back in August. Pinky promise.
As always, thank you so much for your kindness. Look after your little selves.
