Well, my shop update on Saturday saw my Folksy shop make it's 1000th sale...I am so proud, as I've only been trading on there for 2 years!!!
Thankyou everyone for your constant support of my work, both online and in real life, at shows... I really appreciate it, you know!!!
My other milestone is that I have been blogging here for 5 years...!!!!
So, to celebrate these two huge achievements, I am having a Blogversary competition... :D
Just leave me a message here, saying why my Blog interests you and keeps you coming back, and you'll go into one of my many hats and win a prize....
This competition will run for a week......

Yay! 1000! Congrats hun - you deserve it.

Think you should do a fibre club special to celebrate in style (hint!!).

Currently knitting myself a scrummy cowl form the custom fibre you dyed for me not long after I started spinning, and the Swedish knitting group I go to absolutely drooled over it - so you may well be getting some Swedish orders at some point!
