Happy Blogiversary To Me!

Hello there!
I hope your week is going well... I'm just posting quickly to-day because there are great celebrations afoot
To-day I'm celebrating (courtesy of my son's marshmallow/dairy milk/smore concoction) a one-year milestone... it was one year ago that I started out on my blog journey. I'm amazed, overwhelmed and so thrilled to have spent the last year with you all... especially those of you who have taken the time & effort to leave me comments, each one of which I have treasured (& I confess to have read over & over again!)
To help me celebrate, I would love to share some of my favourite things from the length & breadth of UK with you
First up is some gorgeous Liberty fabric.... I'll say no more :)
Next is some lovely fine tweed from Wales - perfect for a wee pouch if you're that way inclined
Here are some pretty buttons & beads made here in the Emerald Isle (some by me!!) - well, everyone needs to accessorize, don't they??
This Scottish hand-dyed wool & felt is so beautiful.... I can imagine lots of wonderful things to do with it!
Some delicious Orkney fudge from the Scottish Island to keep your sugar levels up while you're stitching (this is something I used to love as a wee girl... a long time ago!)
And last, but certainly not least, a charm pack of Lucies wonderful Summerville fabrics
I'd love to give this lot to you, if you are a follower... you certainly deserve it!
So to enter (only if you are a follower please) just leave me a wee comment.. anything you fancy will be grand! I'll close the giveaway on Tuesday 3rd July & announce the winner on Wednesday 4th.... good luck!
Thank you again to each one of you for your inspiration/encouragement/quirkiness & kindness.... I really appreciate it all!
Karen
