Not Much to Show

 I joined with Wendy and friends last night for a night of sewing
I did achieve quite a bit but cannot show to much  Its all very secret stuff
I did turn these bits into something quite lovely
Finally had a better day weather wise so did a bit in the garden which was nice
It has been a while

FNWF and a giveaway

 Because I had friends to sew with last night it got me motivated to finish this chair pad I have had on the go for ages and ages
Originally I found it in an OP Shop and liked it
Took it home to finish but needle turn applique is really not my thing all though I love how it looks
Any way did get it done so.very happy with it.
August is my birthday month so I have decided to have a little giveaway
Will have to sort out what  I will be giving away and will show a photo before the end of the month
Now to enter I would like you to guess  the date of my birthday and my age
A hint. I have a 20 year old grand son so Iam no spring chicken
The first person to get the correct answer will win
Also I will have another prize draw on Sep1st
Pulled out of the hat
To enter simply leave a comment on this post only
