Time for my first December post and also a little giveaway....

Alrightly Then - Guess What? I am having my very first giveaway - but first you have to sit through some other stuff first before we get to the giveaway...
You may have noticed that I have been working on the Homespun BOM - It's Time For Christmas, well I have NOT finished it so don't get too excited but I have completed the top...

This is probably as far as this quilt will get this year...so quilting will be left until next year...sorry but I am not putting myself under any delusions about having heaps of time to finish it - and the fact of the matter is - my mojo has not come back...so I am just casually going with the flow of things (and no I haven't taken up drinking although that is not a bad idea)..

On Friday I spent the day at doctors appointments and cleaning my sewing room up (I am sure someone else is making a mess in there because it couldn't have been made by one person)..
Anyhow my spirits lifted when my parcel from Chookys Secret Santa Swap arrived...yippee...
Now do I wait or do I open the little one first..nah who can wait...
My parcel came all the way from Sweden...(I don't know if I am allowed to put up who my sender is so I will wait until I put the main pressy up to reveal this)...
 We decorated the house this weekend and so I was able to put up my decoration straight away..
I love it...thank you secret santa - I am so looking forward to opening the main present on Christmas day...and thanks Chooky for organising the swap, I know how busy one can get at this time of the year.
Ok now is time for me to reveal my giveway....why you may be asking yourself - well its Christmas and that's a good enough reason than any...
I have four gifts for you to choose from...and I suppose we will need some rules...
Lets see - rule one - You must be a blogger and a follower to enter..
                rule two - Sorry but being my first giveaway - I am only posting within Australia..
                rule three - Leave a comment on this post and also include the number for which gift you
                                   are interested in..  I will have the kids draw names from a hat and will eliminate
                                   the gifts one at a time...I will send an email after the drawing.
                rule four - Yes Tuesday Girls - you can enter (I have kept these gifrts a secret even from
                                  them...
                rule five - and its and easy one - the date for the drawing will be Monday the 9th Dec -
                                 so get your entries in before then.
So do you want to see what I have to giveaway???

Number 1.....A project bag and a Marg Low - Country Garden Thread Holder (with four threads)..
 Number 2 - another Marg Low project - Dilly Bag with matching Needle Keeper.
 Number 3 - A book by Suzanne McNeill and a Marg Low Country Garden Holder with
                           two buttons inside...          
 Number 4 - Well to tell the truth - number four is a booby prize - it was a book that I purchased
                     on line and when it arrived it just was not my cup of tea - and so it was put
                    aside waiting for a new home...I didn't feel it was up to scratch for a gift so hence -
                    the boobie prize...maybe someone (other than me) would appreciate it - so here it is..
 I have included a photo of one of the pincushions inside - you will notice it is called FLAT CAT - I think this says it all...lol  So if you think this would be a great read then include the number 4 with your comments...

 You can add several numbers if you like - just put them in order of preference. 
Well that's it for me...have fun...I, as well as a lot of other people this weekend, have put
up my chrissy tree and decorated the house...but those photos can be added at a later date..
Goodnight all and I hope you all have a great week, oh and good luck with the giveaway...cya  xx
Oh and spread the word about the giveaway...
