Competition Winners, and Bloggoversary

Well hello there. You're looking good today!

I'm sorry I have still been largely absent from the blog world, but am hoping to come back properly soon.

I am also sorry if I haven't responded to your lovely comments, but I have read and really appreciated them. Thank you all.

This week I went for a drive, and took a walk by the sea, which is always a happy place for me. 

I used picmonkey for these photos, I have always wanted to try the Instamatic look. 

I really love the look, but don't think I would permanently want to use it, as it takes all the colour and sun from the photos!

I have not edited the last photo deliberately, so you can see the difference!

So, anyway, it's April 3 today, which means it's a year today since I started my blog and wrote my first post.

I have really enjoyed the process of blogging, it has helped me look at the world around with a different eye, I have really enjoyed chronicling things I have made, and most of all, I have really enjoyed meeting all of you.

You guys are great, you really truly are. 
I love getting your comments, and feedback, it really makes my day.
this is the unedited version- how much brighter are the colours??

Anyway, on to the Pay it Forward Competition.
I have decided to add cards to all the prizes, since they were clearly the favorites.

Prize No 1- the flower fairy crowns..... goes to Madeleine from Yarn Madness

Prize No 2, the cowl goes to Cuckoo, from Tales from Cuckoo-land

Prize No 3, the cards goes to Robbie from Knitxcore

If you can all email me your addresses, I will get them out to you quick sticks.
Take care
