A winner & a finished UFO!

Hello there from a very sunny north of Scotland!
Now it's not often I can say that ;-) We have been enjoying some beautiful days of bright blue skies & cold temperatures, the frosts in the mornings have been so gorgeous! I will share some photos of it with you soon but today I'm popping in to announce the winner of my very first giveaway!
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered & also to all of you who have taken the time to comment on my posts over this first year of my blog. I really appreciate your support! I wrote all the names of those who entered on a piece of paper...
...folded them & put them into a bowl...
...shook them all around & about and asked hubbie to pick one out...
...and the winner is...
Congratulations Mary-Grace! Your stitchy goodies will be on their way to you soon :)

Today I can also show you a stitchy finish. Back in this post here I shared my stitchy plans for the year with you all & whilst I haven't quite managed to spend a whole two days a week working on The Snowman this month I have spent more hours on it than I otherwise would have. In fact I was pretty surprised at how quickly the top half of this came together & last week I put the last back stitch in! YAY! So here is my finished Snowman...
Sorry for the slightly odd angle of this shot, I was trying (unsuccessfully) to capture some of his sparkles! I will have to go look for a frame to put him in now... Next week I hope to start my last gingerbread man on my Christmas stitching day & restart Ladybird fairy on my UFO day. Thank you for dropping by to visit here today, I hope you have a lovely week whatever you are up to!!
