1 year old today

My blog is 1 year old today!!
84 blogs, some 11,000 visitors and many new friends. So a VERY BIG THANK you to all who have left comments in the past.

I knew this milestone was coming some days ago and have been thinking of how I could mark the occasion - in my youth the 'birthday child' would receive lots of lovely gifts from friends etc (great can't wait!! :-) ) however these days it seems to be the party attendees who seem to expect a gift in the form of an over-flowing goodie bag! So - OK I give in - it can't be an over-flowing goodie bag, as I am broke, but it can be a bag!! One of my favourite gifts is the 'pocket bag' I make, sell and offer workshops on - They are made with Silk carrier rods which I dye - so each one is unique. They are just the right size to hold a pair of glasses, a mobile or as I do at exhibitions both! I have seven colours - Rainbow, Green, Autumn (rusty), Blue, Turquoise, Purple and Yellow.

I will give away 10 bags - to the first 10 people who leave a comment between today and Wednesday 24th - it's pot luck as to the colour you will receive!
Once again THANKS for being blogging friends.

Anna, you are such a generous person. "Happy Birthday" a few days late. Sad to say I lost a week somewhere and you aren't the only late Happy Birthday on my part this week.

The bag are beautiful.
