Giveaway winner!

Did you enjoy the Royal Wedding? We loved every minute...and no wondering if they were really in love. They were quite obviously besotted with each other. Long live the future King and Queen! \o/
(...and may they be blessed with a large brood of children!)
The winner of my 1400 Followers giveaway is Mareille in Belgium!!
Congratulations Mareille!!
Please email me your home address and I will send the apron and tea towel off to you this week. 
Thank you also to everyone who entered, and all those who are followers of my blog. You always bless me! 
Today Mr E and I will head off for a short ride down to Mingela for lunch, then it is back to work on the piecing of my new quilt design. It is looking lovely so far, and of course that excites me because a new design at completion is like a new member of the family you want to show off! 
I'm also having a play with some exquisite vintage lace I have been collecting...
It will be used in some very special projects later in the year, and I'm pretty sure you are going to want to make them as well. It's all tied up with the new direction of Elefantz later in 2011. Be prepared.... :-)
Lots of lovely things on my sewing table and in my sketch book - I'm sure the cool autumn mornings have reignited my creative side, but with lace like this you cannot help being inspired to design.
Do you remember last month when I won Lisa's giveaway? The gift was a $50 voucher to spend in Sarah Flood's Etsy Shop where she sells some truly lovely pieces of silver jewellery she has designed and made. I chose two pieces from the voucher value, and purchased a third jewellery item because I had such a hard time choosing! 
They have arrived and I love them! So fine in detail, and lovely to wear. 
Thank you Lisa and Sarah!
It is May dear grandmother's favourite month of the year. Today I am thinking about her, my dear departed Phyllis May Matchett, who raised me from a 3yo and always made me feel as though I was the most wonderful child. You are missed, nana.
Have a lovely Sunday,

The wedding ceremony was filled with the message of love that we all should be offering one to another. You do this so well in your profile that allows us to see the woman that you are. Congratulations on your win and your new project.

Congratulations to the winner! And congratulations and best wishes to William and Kate. I missed the wedding but from what I saw on the news reports all was as beautiful as could be. They make a wonderful couple and appear to be well suited for each other.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

I loved the wedding! It was so nice! And they look so very much in love, it's just wonderful. I'm an incurable romantic, so of course I was up at 5am my time to catch it live. :o)

Peace and Laughter,
