A winner... or three!

On the weekend my DP went to the Sevens hosted here in Wellington... It's become an iconic event here for 2 reasons. 1 - everyone gets dressed up and it becomes one giant party, the atmosphere is pretty impressive and 2 - every year Wellington manages to turn on the heat and we have a cracker of a weekend! This weekend was no exception!! Click here for a link to see the DP and his friends dressed as plastic soldiers.

DP took the camera so I was camera-less last night when Ollie helped me put all the names into the peg basket. I let Oliver pick a name out of the basket, but instead of just one name he pulled out three... so I thought it was only right that all three should win a prize!

The first name he gave me was bellaandmolly, then EmileeHope followed by Georgia!! Tracy you'll win the first prize and EmileeHope and Georgia I will put together prizes for you too!!! Thank you to everyone for leaving me a comment and for those who have become followers too :)

I am very excited to report that I have been given business approval to attend a course in Phoenix Arizona! I can not wait!! I depart on the 21 February and arrive back in Wellington on the 26 February! I'll get 1.5 days to shop and take a look around. I've already googled fabric stores!!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!


  1. Awesome !! What fabric store are you going to visit? I'm jealous :-)

  2. How exciting. I can't believe that I won.
    Thanks so much! You will love Arizona. One of my BFF's moved there a few years ago and I love to visit. It's a whole different world. Take lots of pictures.

  3. Woo woo! Thanks Ollie. ;-)
    If I were going to the US (lucky you!) I would do exactly the same thing - visit the fabric shops! A little obsessed you think???

  4. Congratulations to the winners! I like how Oliver draws names. :)

    Hope you can hook up with one or two of the ORBC ladies while in Phoenix (or a least get a recommendation of where to shop). Such an exciting trip!
