WOOLLIE - SWAPS AND WINS

I am very privileged to now be the proud owner of work from 2 very talented ladies - Jade and Tine.

A while ago I fell in love with one of Tine's picture sequences - Jonathan and Emma - pictures of cute seagulls standing on the beach! My mum is the chairperson of a local charity which is called the Seagull Trust, which provides free canal cruising for the disabled so seagulls always catch my eye.

Tine and I decided to organise a little swap and I posted off some yarn and things and Tine sent me this:



It is now sitting happily on my mantelpiece! I was supposed to give it to my mum but I am not sure I can!!



Then I was lucky enough to win Jade's blog giveaway!! I was so excited! My first ever blog win!! Less than 10 days later - all the way from Australia, the beautiful apron arrived. I apologise to Jade for my poor photography - trying to take a picture of myself wearing it was not easy! It really is beautiful! Thank you so much for choosing my name out of your hat!

Per caso sono passata di qui e ho visto il blog simile al mio....
Ci accomunano alcune cose oltre il blog: io ho 2 figli nel tuo stesso paese; ti visitero' spesso cosi' mi sentiro' un po' piu'.....vicino a loro!
Complimenti per i tuoi lavori, anche se non so la lingua, mi sforzero' di capire meglio....
Ciao, a presto
Luciana
