Blogoversary giveaway

Rhona finally received the giveaway I put together for her to celebrate my blogoversary back in...er...March and seems to have quite liked it.

Gaynor (StitchersAnon) very kindly designed me a chart of a No Ironing chart which with finishing my degree off took me ages to stitch and make up.  On the plus side it meant that every time I went shopping, I saw little bits and thought 'ooh, that would be nice to add to the package'.  It started off as iron/candy and developed into other bits too.

So without further ado, here is the design before I made it up.  I think it is about 6" x 6" when stitched on 14ct. (Yes Jo, 14 ct aida...lol).

The bizarre thing is, and I didn't realisz it until I was ironing the fabric to make it up, the iron is pretty much the same as my iron in real life!

designed by
Gaynor French (Stitcher's Anon)
This is the wall hanging I made for Rhona.  It was really odd when I looked at it because actually in the quilting fabric there were red, blue and yellow irons but with the exception of a tiny bit of red iron here and there, the rest all ended up being the blue and yellow ones.  It wasn't planned like this, it just happened!  I forgot to take a photo of the other backing fabric I used too which is really cute.



This is a photo of the goodies I sent to Rhona, which I have shamelessly stolen from her blog as I forgot to take one of everything together.  Glad you liked it all Rhona.

Fantastic prize, the iron design is a great one. Now you have the perfect answer when people ask "what is the strangest thing you have stitched?"

I know Rhona loved all her gifts.
