Stripy Giveaway Goodies Galore!!!

Well, my dear blogging friends, we're back home after five weeks of fun and sun in England and Italy!  And guess what???  It's raining here in Düsseldorf.  I'd normally be a bit disgruntled about returning to drizzle.  But, after two weeks in Tuscany with temperatures way up in the mid-30°s (and no air conditioning in our room, with windows shut tight to keep the mozzies out), the rain and 20° temperature is very welcome indeed!!!  Now I’m home again, I’m looking forward to visiting you all and seeing what you’ve been up to over the summer.  I hope you’re all having a good one! WAY back at the end of June, just before the school holidays started, I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from the lovely Moo and Mouse blog.  I was VERY excited to receive my prize through the post – stripy goodies galore!!! Would you like a peek???

some colourful, stripy string

some cute, stripy bulldog clips

some pretty, stripy washi tape

and a pincushion (sewn by fairies, I think)

Thank you SO much, Emma!!!  I know I’ll put all of my new stripy bits and bobs to very good (crafty) use!  I’ll be back again soon, to tell you about some of my holiday adventuring..... Carly
