Blogoversary Giveaway...so sign up now for my giveaway!

Well I have been blogging for nearly a year, I am delighted to have kept going for all this time.. a year today to the day is when I had my knee op. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow.
It has allowed me to carry on gardening, although I don't bend it, I stand with my legs splayed like a giraff weeding and planting so I have aching muscles the next day but I can get it done which when it was very painful I couldn't.
Of course my knee and op allowed me to stitch more as I sat for three months and did nothing else!
And at that time I started this blog, so I am giving away some stitchy bits, don't know what as I haven't started yet so it will be a surprise to who ever gets them and me!!
The draw will be 14th August as I am away end of July, we are going to Essex as the tenants are changing in the house there and so we will be clearing up and gardening, no doubt!
Today I am off to see my grand children in Cambridge and my daughter said, bring your marigolds as still no dish washer, but what are Mums for???



This is my grand daughter lounging in my chair wearing the shirt she persuaded me to buy her after we had been to see High School Musical 3, well isn't that what grand mothers are for?? LOL

You didn't say whether you were limiting the drawing to your area due to postage expense or not. I would love to be entered in your drawing, but totally understand if it is not feasable for you to mail it to the United States. I know that some US bloggers state that the Giveaway if for only those in the continential US. This was my first visit to your blog and I became a follower so I can keep up with what you are doing. You definitely have many projects going there.

Happy Blogoversary!! Time flies when you're having fun!! Good luck with the clean up and new tenants...been there quite a few times with our rental house and you never know what you'll find...one time, there was hardly anything to do, while another, it was a major overhaul...so hope it's a small clean up for you!
