And the winner of the 250th blog post is............

Aha! You didn't think I'd let you know straight away did you???

Of course not!

First I've got to bore you silly with some more Locketland News.

Well, I would, if I had any!

I've been busy all week making a present for a good friend's very late baby - I was panicking at the beginning of the week because I had only started making it when she was already a week overdue, but I am quietly confident that I will get it finished today and the baby is still not here!

I don't want to show you a photo of it until I have given it to my friend so you will have to wait - but I can tell you that it is very, very BRIGHT!!!

Instead I will show you some of my new-ish fabric purchases.


Like a lot of other people in blogland I have been unable to resist this gorgeous bird fabric and I managed to find some fabulous black prints to go with it - maybe a bag or a fabric scarf?

I also treated myself to these lovelies from FabricRehab


my favourite is the owly print - so cute!

Daisy and Fred have been having fun this morning playing with their Playmobil


The horse stable has been set up and raffle tickets written for the characters to have a chance of winning a horse - they had to buy the tickets of course. At 2p each. Not bad when the prize is a horse and 7 out of 20 tickets were winners!


Meanwhile Dot was busy in the kitchen making our lunch! How fab to have an 11 year old daughter!

And finally, the winner of the giveaway..................


as chosen by the lovely Mr Locket is......................


MONKEE MAKER!!!!!!!

I'm just hoping that this prize will tempt her away from knitting severed horse's heads!!!!

I have no need to win your competition as that wonderful smile from Fred has lit up my whole afternoon. . . . .How gorgeous is Fred?

Gina said...

Well done Monkey Maker! Lots more lovely fabric there Mrs Locket!

Hi Lucy,
I definately love the owl fabric! It reminds me of my grandma. She had dishtowels that had a print similar to this one.

Have a great evening!
Deanna :)

Hurrah!! Thank you lovely Lucy and lovely Mr Lucy! I guess this means I'll have to put away my crochet hook and dust off my sewing machine .... if I can find it underneath all the severed horses heads that is ....

I can't tell you how envious I am that Dot cooked your lunch - next you'll be telling us she tidied up after herself as well, and that would just be too much!

Thanks once again Lucy .... do you need my address so that you can send Dot round - I mean the fabric round??

;)

Farmyard Crafts said...

Congrats to the winner! Loving your new fabric too!!

Thimbleanna said...

Wait! My name's not Monkee Maker??? I'm sure it's the internet -- after you typed my name, it scrambled all the letters. It's ok though -- there's still time to explain the mistake to the real Monkee Maker (who, btw, I suppose, does deserve some congratulations!)

Michaela said...

I love the owl fabric too. You never offered me a chance to buy any raffle tickets, I always wanted a playmobil horse. Bother.

But as to those severed horses heads, I'm with Trashy...

Great fabric treats - I had a look at Fabric Rehab but after 'spending' about a hundred quid in my head had to drag myself away!
Well done MM!

wonderwoman said...

gorgeous fabrics Lucy and congrats to monkey maker, but am slightly concerned about the horses heads!

Kitty said...

Well done to MM! Can't wait to see what she does with that delicious fabric. The new stuff you got is rather fabby too - I'm off to check out the links now. Should I worry for my bank balance?!

Lovely to see the Lockets playing together. My two so seldom do anymore :-( x

Leanne said...

Well done on the 250th congrats to MM.

Moogsmum said...

Congratulations to Monkee Maker!!

I bet there are some folk out there would suspect the draw master was bribed. Not me though....oh nooo.....

Lovely fabrics Locket. Hurry up and make something lovely with them and then you can buy more!!

p.s. I'm sure Fred Locket's Horse draw was all above board ;-)

Need to keep up with the posts. I thought Trashy knew something we didn't about your sleeping habits - Glad it was only severed horses heads. Congrats Monkee Maker, please don't try and crochet with the fabric though!
