Magazine Winner, and an Amendment...

Thanks for the welcome back and for all the entries for the magazine! 


I popped you all on a list and copped out with the random number generator and the winner is:

Congratulations, if you could email me your address (kandipandi{at}tiscali{dot}co{dot}uk) I'll post out this week with a few little bits added in.

I have been spending even more time at the beach this weekend, I'm just scared summer will be gone in a flash and as my youngest boys are now 12 there will not be many more summers that they will want to spend on the beach; we need to make the most of it!


I did manage a bit of crochet on the beach, lots of people come to talk to me when I'm knitting/sewing/making outdoors it's always a good conversation starter.

Been in the kitchen this weekend too making more melts and candles, these are quite popular in my little shop, my home smells of lemon meringue pie and bubblegum, yum!



Ooh before I forget, I made a little mistake in my little hexie tutorial and one of the measurements is wrong!  Poor Judith follwing my instructions to the letter got confuddled and thought it was her brain not getting it when infact it was my dodgy measurement. The change is as follows:

Next make a cushion back. You will need;

· Two large rectangles of cotton 18” x 17”

Should read


· Two large rectangles of cotton 9” x 17”

Sincere apologies for any confusion.

Right, must finish up my magic ball swaps, almost there.  I posted my Fabric Swap to Australia today, hope it gets there soon Kerri!

My sister said she'd hurt me if I knit on the beach....I'm still going to try. It's much easier to people-watch whilst knitting than reading....

Good for you! No matter where I am I can be found crocheting or knitting. I was on a bus journey with the kids a couple of weeks ago and started to crochet on the bus...a few eyebrows were raised! Cx
