Every Cloud and a giveaway

This week has been difficult, but as they say every cloud has a silver lining. Here's mine :)

I won a giveaway from the delightful people at Modern Retro Textiles. Yeah. I need fireworks here. LOL
As the camera is still missing "sigh" I have had to pinch these images from Modern Retro Textiles blog here. Still enough of that, sighing I mean...I'm sure (hopeful) it will turn up, but in the meantime I have these goodies Woo Hoo

Giveaway: As I have got one of these designs I thought I would share the pleasure with someone else. So I will giveaway the duplicate pattern, but you have to guess which one I've got already :)

Not only that but the lovely Sue Niven of I Purr-Furr to Craft has given me a blog award "big smiles"

Now I believe I have to tell you 10 things about myself.

  1. I have 3 sons, 27, 24 & 5 that I adore
  2. Kris is my one and only love
  3. I love being a mother...sorry boys you are stuck with me :)
  4. I have agoraphobia, but get stir-crazy staying at home
  5. Honesty is very important to me. I hate people who play games
  6. I am a shocking chocoholic, I have been known to pull apart freezers, & dive in cupboard in the search for that elusive chocolate I've attempted to put out of my reach.
  7. I procrastinate, put off, forget & lose things all the time
  8. I am a loyal, if sometimes negligent friend (though I love them dearly)
  9. I'm in the mailbag section of this months issue of Homespun ( a few seconds of fame LOL)
  10. My youngest son has and is making me a better person

and then nominate 10 fellow honest bloggers. JUST 10! NOT FAIR
Well here goes (in no particular order)
  10. http// (actually I am cheating a little here as this is a collective site for more than one designer, but I love the fact that they've got together in friendship and mutual support and thats always a good thing, but it did mean that I had to leave my lovely friend Vikki off the list as she is a gum tree designer :( "sigh")
But my best silver lining was a christmas card for Liam from a kinder friend and his Mum...

Best Wishes to all,



  1. First of all, I hope all your days will have a silver line, if even for a short while. Hope you are doing well!
    Well, and I think you have the Jingle Cones double and if not that one, then the Christmas Buckets. To me, those fit best to you, having visited your blog for quite a while now!
    Have a lovely day, dear Sharon!

  2. I am going to guess Jingle Cones as that is the one I would have...
    Thanks for sharing...

  3. Hi Sharon,
    Congrat's on the honest award-lovely learning more about you and everyone that recieves this award.

  4. Hi Sharon i would guess that you would have the Very Merry tree skirt.

  5. Hi Sharin I am guessing the Jingle cones.
    Have a great Christmas

  6. Hello beautiful Sharon!

    It's lovely reading about your life and loves... Liam is a beautiful and delightful little boy and I often think that the worlds that are not "normal" (I hate that word, too!) are often the more fun and loving places to live in!

    Love you sweetie!!! Vikki xoxo
