LSHD Blog Hop day Five and 100 follower candy

Wow! This hop has been great. I've enjoyed popping over to all the blogs and seeing what everyone has made.

Sorry for taking so long to announce my winner from day 3, but I have hardly been around my PC, or even my home over the last 2 days. I've used my own random generator (terence. org... I called out "choose any number from 1 to 27", the first answer was 15. I counted down the list of comment, and my winner is Lisa from

"Lisa said...Love the calendar. Great job. TFS"... Congratulations Lisa! Please contact me with your address and I'll send your goodies to you... :) (Just remember it's coming all the way from South Africa so it may take a little while...)

Unfortunately my little birdie did not make it, but at least her suffering is over and she'll be free to fly in that big birdie heaven in the sky.

I don't have a fully completed item for today, so I'm going to share a paper piecing I've done from Little Scraps of Heaven (and for my South African followers, available from my online shop)
I adore this bear. It's so cute, as are many of the other patterns available from LSHD.

Well, as I'm typing this blog, my followers are standing at 99, so perhaps by the time this post goes "live" I'll be at 100 (or more) ... woohoo!!!

My friend Theresa, has sponsored a goodie bag for this blog hop, so I decided to coincide it with my 100 follower milestone.
The candy consists of a few sponge stamps, some a4 sheets acetate, some stickers, bling, u&l/c stencil, a heart shaped chipboard album, black sequins and an assortment of satin ribbon.

And to this candy, I will add a paper pieced bear holding heart balloons (as above).

See you again tomorrow (Inga's blog is next)
