Spring, things and a Blogoversary Giveaway

It has felt a lot like spring this last week, I even managed to find a few wind blown daffodils and some pussy willow in the garden, and I couldn't resist buying the campanula and white muscari at the florist's.


This display just makes me happy every time I walk into the kitchen.


Not much stitching to show this week, I've been working on an exchange piece and can't show it yet, but I did knock up this bit of daftness for Eloise, a cuddly toy Shroedinger's Cat.
Ah, Geek boards on Pinterest,
you have so much to answer for...

Naomi has been Pinteresting (is that a verb?) too, and made this wonderful picture from wax crayons.
She also made this attractive abstract art installation on the conservatory floor. I suppose I should be glad it wasn't the lounge carpet.

Anyway, a week ago was my 5th Blogoversary, (which I managed to miss, oops!), so I think that calls for a giveaway.  No pictures of the prize as I shall make something specifically for whoever wins, I promise it won't be a dead/alive toy cat (unless that is what you want of course).
If you want to take part, please be a follower and make a comment on this post. If there is something I've stitched or crafted recently that particularly appeals to you, let me know in your post and I'll try and make something like it, or you can be more Karmic about the whole thing and I'll surprise you. Either way I'll take sign ups until next Sunday (11th March). Good Luck!

Thanks for the spring flowers photo, Christine! It is snowing here today so I appreciate it all the more :)

I'm not on Pinterest (afraid of yet another addiction!), but it sure is fun to browse through and see other's creativity...

Wow! 5 years--congratulations to you and your blog! Here's to many more happy blogging hours :)

Your window looks wonderful!! It makes me long for spring. That wax crayon picture is so neat! A very interesting idea.

Pinterest is extremely addicting, lol. I spend way to much time on there!

Happy belated Blogoversary!!

Congrats on 5years blogging.
Super poc by Naomi, I lie that, shame about the floor though.
Funny kitty.
I have a kitchen windowsill that looks very much like yours, a smile comes to my face when I step into the kitchen and see the spring flowers.

I'm going to be serendipitous about the giveaway! Something will just "come" to you if I win.
I think I've found a great thing for you too, now I just need to stitch it!
Love your cat (shouldn't he be in a box?).
The crayons look fab, I saw a "recipe" for heating crayons in an oven and reforming them into rainbow crayons but I'm too scared of setting fire to the kitchen to try!!

It is lovely and springy here but the chickens have eaten all my flowers..so it is lovely to see yours! Thank you for sharing..and I would of course love to join in with your giveaway xx

Pinterest - such an addicting site! I've grown to love it as a way for keeping track of all those neat ideas you see on the web, and its just less paper being printed off and filed.

Congratulations on your 5th Blogoversary!

Spring here in Holland too Christine! It is really nice today especially and I have a drive full of new herb plants to decide on where to place in my garden. :-)

Congratulations on your 5th year of blogging! Isn't blogging wonderful. It brings us so many friends we would otherwise not have met in life ... like me 'meeting' you!

Hugs from Holland ~
Heidi
