giveaway win

Yes, that's right, I won another giveaway! Whilst my luck in my personal life continues to get worse and worse (house still falling down, builders taking their sweet time getting us quotes, let alone starting the work, insurance company refusing to pay up, insurance company refusing to renew our insurance for all the reasons it's denying when refusing to pay the claim (bunch of criminals - oh, might as well name and shame - it's American Express Insurance Services, avoid at all costs), car still trashed, health still bad), my luck at winning giveaways, and apparently my talent at writing entire-paragraph-sentences, continues!

I won this lovely book over at Alison's blog.  It's one of those books I'll be flicking through again and again as it's gorgeous.  There are several projects I want to attempt (wish that WIP list would just disappear along with my to-do list!).

This lovely mirror is one.  I'd never thought of doing an embroidered mirror.  And this cushion is just so cute.

Bookends!  Genius!  Such a lovely book, Alison wrote a proper review, if you want to read it, it's here.

Thanks Alison, I'm thrilled!  And yes, I have added it to the craft book list.  The number is getting quite scary!

I'm sure you'd swap your win for a smoother ride in life at the moment, but as you can't... enjoy yet another win.

Congrats on the win! Sorry to hear about your insurance issues though. It's such a joke. Why bother having it?

Glad you still have some luck in at least one area of your life ;)
The ideas in that book look great - a bookend! Hmm might have to try that one ;)

Some definite eye candy to take your mind off things for a little bit.

I shall definitely avoid THAT insurance company!
