Don’t forget….tomorrow I will be drawing my 2 year blogging anniversary competition at 5pm AEST.
Seeing as I’ve been buying up big on the embroidery threads in all colours of the spectrum (you can read more about that here), I thought I’d put a little surprise pack together with some lovely fabric for you as a prize!
All you need to do is write a comment, and if you’d like to follow me, that’d be wonderful too!
So don’t hesitate……entries close tomorrow 5pm AEST
(and I’ll share my latest finish with you then!!!)

A great find on Ebay kept me busy this week organising these beauties….
I just loved sitting there in front of the tv, winding away onto thread holders….but as you can see I ran out when it came to the variegateds!!!!!
But it got me thinking……out of all of our senses, I would hate to lose my sight….because colour is such an important thing to me….beauty is everywhere around us in colour and combinations of colour…..I don’t know how I’d manage without it…
there’s colour in the garden…
and in the sky…..
Colour choice needn’t be so hard if we just look to the world around us for inspiration…..I know, I’d be lost without my sight and the inspiration of colour in the world around me…..I’m very blessed where we live as we have beautiful and varied colour palettes given to us every day in nature that I draw from.
Now if you’ve made it all the way through my photos, I have a little giveaway. I just realised it’s 9 days past my 2nd blogiversary!!!! *oops* How did I miss that one!?
Anyway, to celebrate, if you just leave a comment telling me what gives you your inspiration or what sense you could not live without, you’ll go into the draw to win some colourful threads and fabric to inspire you too.
Just leave a comment, nothing tricky, and you’ll be entered into the draw where Mr Random Number Generator will help me pick a winner next Saturday AEST 5pm . Make sure you are not a No Reply Blogger though, because if you are, you will not qualify as I won’t be able to contact you. If you’re not sure, click on the link on my sidebar to show you how.
Good luck and I hope you’re blessed with a colourful world too
