400th post giveaway!

I can't quite believe that I've made 400 posts to this little blog of mine. To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway. Leave a comment before 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on 14 May and you'll be in the running for a secret surprise!

+++++++++++

Good news: hard work pays off. I received 90% for my paper. Too bad it is only worth 20% of the overall mark! Now for the second paper, due in three weeks - this one's worth 40%. Let's hope I can do as well.

+++++++++++

And in crafty news, I've finally made a start on a long-promised cushion cover for my friend Kate, whose beloved husband died in November 2007. It's a photo cushion and I've found it very hard to get started. I keep putting it off for some reason - it's very confronting having his face staring up at me from my table, now that it's printed out on fabric. I need to get this finished and sent down to Kate. She has forgiven me so far for being so tardy in making it, but I feel terrible for not making it sooner. I had better go and get it finished then, instead rambling on in here!

Gosh Lily - I'm first to comment - so unusual for me at the moment as I don't seem to get round everyone like I used to - congrats for 400 post and good luck with the cushion, I can imagine stitching something with such a a strong reminder of an absent friend would be very difficult but I'm sure she will appreciate it :o)

Congratulations Lily, 400 posts is a huge milestone! I've enjoyed catching up with your lovely blog and seeing all those gorgeous pics of Tristan and Romy, I can't believe how big Tristan is and how much hair he has (Owen is still pretty bald!)
Well done on the essay too, it sounds like a challenging course.
I'm still keen to catch up one day soon, but just waiting for the dust to settle after going back to work part time - at the moment life feels completely chaotic!

Congrats on 400 Posts, who knows maybe you get 400 comments for it too!
Well done on the 90% you are a genius with all the duties you juggle.

i am surprised on how well you always fit all the crafty stuff in, and eventhough it is 18mths later, it is a wonderful gift you do for your friend. i am sure she will appreciate it a lot, esp. that long after he passed away and everyone moved on with life, but she is still grieving.
You are a dear friend.
