100th post!! a giveaway, and other bits and bobs!


Wow... i can't quite believe i've reached 100, posts that is!!! I thought i'd be doing well to do a dozen or so!! I haven't done many lately for reasons you will all understand - rushing around like a headless chicken, trying to do all shopping, cleaning, etc. to make it perfect for christmas - but i have realised that i don't do perfect, so i have calmed down,written endless lists and decided to chill out!
Here are a few pics, in random order as blogger is playing up, which i took this morning, and which make me feel very christmassy indeed! The one with me in it shows how bl...y freezing it was!!! The little horse tree dec is one Em picked to add to our stash and she decorated the tree whilst we watched, and sang to, Love Actually!





As its my 100th post there will be a giveaway and all those who've commented on my last couple of posts and this one will be included and the winner will be announced after christmas. The prize will be either some lovely yarn or some fabric and a few other bits and pieces!


I'd better go now as have just a couple more things to get and as the word 'snow' keeps being bandied about i think i better get a move on.
I just want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and to say thanks for all your lovely comments over the last year. Hope you all have a fantastic time!
Love and hugs
xxxxx

Happy 100 - well done you! I reached my first 100 reasonably quickly, but the second toook a lot longer - it'sa bit like brithdays now, I've sort of stopped counting or I feel bad about how infrequent they are these days!

Hope you're keeping warm and snug.

I love the pictures you posted of your horse...he seems a bit chilly too...

I also scrolled down and saw your wristwarmers...very nice...wish it wasn't so hot in Florida...then I'd knit too! Merry Christmas!

Geez you look like you're f-f-f-f-freezing!!! Hmmm, I'm wondering how my kids are going to handle it over there for Chrissie??!!?! I tried to tell them how cold it would be but I really don't think they 'got' it. Bet they do now though he he he.
Love n hugs,
Joy :o)
PS ... Oh I LOVE your horsey tree!!!!!

Brrrrr! Isn't it chilly! The children have just been playing out in a fresh snowfall - even though some of them were in their p-js ready for bed! Just hope the bunny is tucked up warmly enough! Locket xxx

Congratulation on your 100th blog post Maria. Wow, it seems so cold up your way. Here in Australia, east coast NSW, we are celebrating because of the heaps of rain we had over Christmas. We are on a little hobby farm and our water tanks were down to about 1/4 of one tank, now they are full again thanks to that lovely rain.
