Six months!

I know I haven't posted very frequently, or very regularly, but this is the longest that I've stuck with any kind of journaling. Well, except for my grade 10 year when all I wrote about was boys...

So, here's the promised giveaway: a wee purse.


It's pretty small... about 8" wide by 6" tall, and a 2" wide base. One little pocket inside. Mostly linen on the outside, and cotton on the inside. I've appliqued a bird on the front and added some free-motion embroidery. The handle is 24" long, so it sits nicely right under the arm.

To throw your name into the hat, just leave me a comment. If you link to me on your own blog, I'll give you an extra entry.

Best of luck, and thanks for reading :)
