Giveaway winner

I honestly didn’t forget that I was supposed to announce the winner of my giveaway at the end of February. Honest. But I did forget that the 28th was the day before I travelled back home and that packing is really quite stressful.

Then everything was a mad whirlwind that is only just starting to settle down now. One thing I can say for jetlag – I’ve never got to sleep so quickly in my life, it’s magic!

I’ve decided I’m still not going to reveal what the prize is (I just love surprising people too much!) until the winner receives it, but I will give you a hint. It’s something useful as well as beautiful, and it contains a bit of paua shell.

Paua shell
Aren’t they gorgeous

 

So I’ve totted up everyone who liked and commented on the post and there are 13 entrants, my favourite number 😀 I plugged them in to random.org and let it do its random thing.

And now, the moment you’ve all probably forgotten about because it’s taken me so long to sort my life out: the giveaway winner is…

 

 

 

Karen of Nothing But Knit!

 

Congratulations!! Drop me a message with your address and I’ll get your prize sent out to you this weekend 🙂

 

Sorry to everyone who didn’t win, but there will be more giveaways in the future so there will be more chances for sure.

Thanks for playing!

Stitching santa 2017

The final part of my stitching santa gift finally arrived on Friday so I’m ready to box it up and send it out!

I was actually waiting on the smallest part of the gift, but it’s also my favourite part!

It’s this here polymer clay, teeny tiny yarn skein!

Isn’t it cute!! I’ve threaded it with some ribbon to make a pretty necklace

Also going into the box will be:

This adorable little bauble

Some suitably Christmassy candles

It’s not Christmas without chocolate

A variety of tasty tea sachets (no photo, sorry!)

And this little guy

It looks far less like a skeleton octopom in real life. Honestly.

And I’ll stick in a skein of actual yarn or two, because that’s what we all truly love.

My secret santa was also organised so I’ve actually received my gift already! But I’m running off to choir now so I’ll have to post about that another day.

Has anyone else received their gift? Are you part of a secret santa outside the blogosphere? Let me know in the comments!
