Monster Giveaway!!!

Yes,I'm giving away two monsters:-)

both monsters ( as yet nameless) come complete with a small handmade gift from the Toy Museum on the Isle of Skye.

Monster no 1 comes with a Skye Winder toy


Monster No 2 comes with a set of fivestones recycled from a whisky barrel.

all comments since the beginning of the holiday photos will be entered along with any further comments posted in the next week.

We have been regular visitors to the museum in the past and were happy to see it open again in spite of a devastating fire a few years ago. If you are ever on Skye, we would recommend that you stop off and have a play with the toys.

I'm off to batten down the hatches, make a hot toddy and try to get rid of the cold that's had me laid low for the last few days. The radio is on BBC7 with reruns of old comedy programmes and the spinning wheel has been oiled and tweaked so hopefully I can sit and have a play with it. I've never tried a double drive wheel before and suspect it may take a while to set it up how I like it.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend :-)


Later.. had a quick count up and 33 wonderful people are already entered to win a monster although that does include Biker Ted who has me a bit concerned at the moment - check out his latest post that seems to include bells and hankies and dancing!!

Hope you shake off that cold soon Sue. I used to play 5 stones when I was small, often with a set of metal stars or jacks.

ginger and pepper tea is what I drink when I get a sore throat and cold.

Love the monsters.

I drink either hot Ribena or Lemon and Ginger tea when I'm feeling under the weather.
Isn't BBC7 wonderful. I'm addicted to The Navy Lark and Hancock's Half Hour. Everything stops in my house on a Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtime

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Great monsters, I created my own monster (or rather "wild thing" for my new grandson's "Where The Wild Things Are" quilt. You can see it in my photo album "Sandy's Projects" in the machine_needle_felting forum. Thanks so much. Sandy
