Six month blogiversary draw

Today is my six month blogiversary and I do not know where those six months have gone to! I would like to thank everyone that takes time to visit me and leave such lovely comments and what better way to show my appreciation than to have a draw. Up for the prize is the Quaker Biscornu (shown above), together with a little goodie package. This is the biscornu that I stitched for May's Monthly Finishing Challenge (for those that haven't seen it before go here). You have 7 days in which to leave a comment to say you would like to be entered in the draw (on this post only) and I will make the draw on Monday, July 7. So, don't be shy, leave a comment - you have to be in it to win it!

I have no new stitching pictures to show today although I have been stitching a little.

I have already lost 5lbs on my healthy eating plan - slightly more than my planned slow loss of lb per week.  Yippee!

Eggling is doing really well as he has 14 flowers out, with more buds to open. Do want another photo or are you bored of him now? He really wants re-potting but I need to buy one as the ones I have are either much too large or too small. My strawberry pot is wonderful now and has some rather large green strawberries. I can't wait til they turn red - yummy!

Thanks for visiting
Take care 

Edited: This draw is open to anyone who leaves a comment, including new visitors. Just leave a comment and you are in!
