Grow Your Blog and Giveaway

WELCOME
Thank you for finding and visiting my blog.  Today the `Grow Your Blog´ Party begins which is hosted by Vicki at Vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com and is a means of finding new blogs to visit and read and meet new bloggers and followers.  Firstly I must mention something about myself.  My name is Sheryl, I am British and I live in the North of Spain.  I have two children and three grandchildren.  I started this needlework blog two months ago as a means of keeping a record of my work and to find others who share this same hobby.  While here I hope you will have a quick look around and if you like what you see, maybe become a follower.  My other interests are genealogy, gardening and reading.
I love embroidery





 
 These are small scissor pouches.  They also have a little embroidery on the reverse side.



The insides are lined with silk or satin.


I also enjoy knitting and crochet

 
 
 


Love patchwork and applique


 
I wish I had more hands and that there were more hours in the day to do all the needlework I would like to do. I think most of us crafters feel the same.  Here is the giveaway.

 
GIVEAWAY
As a thank you for your visit which I hope won´t be the last, I am hosting a giveaway.  It is EITHER: one of the embroidered mermaid scissor holders seen above (the orange or the blue without scissors) OR one of the embroidered compact mirrors as seen above (pink or purple)
All you have to do to enter the giveaway, is to leave a comment here on this post.  You don´t have to have a blog or become a follower, all may enter.  Be sure to mention in your comment which item and which colour you would like if you are the winner and to include a way of contacting you.  One winner will be announced on the 15th  FEBRUARY.  Good luck to everyone.
 
GIVEAWAY  NOW  CLOSED

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you have fun with the blog hop and will return here again soon.  Click on the above link which will take you to Vicki´s blog and the other participants.
