Sew Grateful Giveaway Winner

Sorry, I am so late in posting this. I was out on Monday evening and last night I’m afraid to say that pancakes and The Great British Sewing Bee took priority!

I had 21 entrants to my giveaway in the end, which I was rather pleased about! There were actually too many for the glass bowl, and a jug had to be substituted as the “hat” of choice. The independent adjudicator (husband) did his official bit… and pulled out the following from the hat, sorry, jug:

Congratulations goodpurlgonebad! Please get in touch with your postal address etc.

Now, for fun, I had asked you to tell me about instances of you being thrifty, the more ridiculous the better.  You are seriously inventive, thrifty and, like me, sometimes just a little bit daft, so I just had to share some of my favourites! I haven't listed them all, but feel free to go back to the original post to see the rest!


I have done this on so many holidays!

Not funny, but doesn’t this sound so delicious? Danielle, we are all coming round to your house!

And my favourite by far, which genuinely made me laugh out loud. At work.

Thanks to everyone who took part, and I’m sorry you couldn’t all win.
