Look at this!

24 December 2008
Yes, I know I said I wouldn't be blogging over Christmas but I just had to tell you this.

I entered a giveaway draw at the lovely blog - the long thread a few days ago and have just been told I won! The giveaway is a pair of beautifully embroidered white linen hand towels. Many of you know I love such very simple linens so I'm really happy to have won them. Thank you Ellen!

If you have some spare time over the holidays, make sure you visit this site because Ellen is a very talented craftswoman and I'm sure she'll inspire some wonderful projects for your home. I have linked to Ellen before but she has much more than the little recycled fabric Christmas trees I showed you previously. Your small children will love the free paper toys she blogged about today.
