My 100th post giveaway!

I am very excited to have reached my 100th blog post; it feels like quite a milestone. I am enjoying myself enormously writing this blog, having a place to explore all the things that are of interest to me.What is really lovely is that often they are of interest to other people too. Like every blogger, when I wrote my first few posts I was not sure if they would be read by anyone other than me, or my mum and dad - thanks mum and dad! So it is great to find other people reading and commenting, I am really liking this getting to know people through comments and chats. It turns out that blogging is really rather sociable and I like it! So, as a thank you for sticking around so far, I thought I would have a giveaway and my 100th post seems like the perfect opportunity.

In the background there is a beautifully embroidered vintage tray cloth and on top of that is a pretty floral handkerchief. To the right is a sleep mask.

Here is a close up of the lovely embroidered baskets of flowers and the bunches of flowers on the handkerchief.

The sleep mask is lovingly handmade by me from a 1950's pattern. The reverse of the mask is navy cotton with tiny white polka dots.

I thought that there needed to be a selection of knitting patterns.

Lots of great options here and time to make them before the cold weather comes!

This pretty lacy top and the next three pictures are from the Needlewoman and Needlecraft magazine.

The next two patterns are found in the Woman's Owen knitting booklet for 'you and him'!
