This week it is my 8th blogaversary and this is also my 500th post – how exciting 🙂
I was going to post this a little earlier in the evening but was distracted by an incident where I went into the kitchen to fetch more wine, turned on the lights and there was a very loud bang accompanied by a shower of glass.
Turned out that a lightbulb had exploded, taking with it the glass surround on that part of the light fitting. So a little bit of a clean up ensued and I will remove the remains of bulb and fitting in daylight tomorrow.
Anyway more of the real excitement, 8 years of lovely blog activity and 500 posts, mainly about my fabric fettlings so I am celebrating in traditional style with a giveaway.
This will be not only for some ornaments maybe something like the ones in the picture below but also since it is a double celebration some Christmas fabric as well, maybe even some of the lovely Makower stash.
To enter just like this post. I will close the giveaway next Friday the 11th to give time to put the winning gifts in the post.
I will return later on with an update on the latest batch of ornament finishes, meanwhile stay safe and avoid home accidents! Thanks for visiting.

You make the most gorgeous
Christmas ornaments Alison. 🙂 x
Thank you it is one of my favourite things to do and I think I will just carry on into Jan and beyond as there are so many lovely ones I still haven’t done.
Sorry to hear of your adventure – I hope it wasn’t too destructive!
A bit of a pain as I expect I will have to buy whole new light fitting now, don’t think they sell the lampshades separately, at least no-one was injured!
