Give away and old photos

One of the reasons I've not been sharing much is that during our home upheaval I've lost the card reader for my camera to upload photos, Vista won't talk to my poor old camera.  I've lived in hope of finding the reader but hope has faded with emptying the final boxes of junk/household necessities.  So, I must do something about replacing it or installing a permanent one in the computer very soon, not being able to share is very boring.  I'm dying to show the results of recent time spent with grandkids!

No card reader means no photo of my
give away :(((  I'm so sorry!!  I hope a description will suffice.  The first name drawn will receive a crocheted bear called Buttons, he is very closely related to Butterscotch who can be seen here  Buttons has his own little comfort blanket to take with him to his new home.  Second and third names drawn will receive a crocheted surprise, shabby chic style.

The draw is open to anyone who has commented on this blog previously and who says a quick hi on this post.  I love all your comments so your name will be included as many times as your previous number of comments, to show my appreciation.  I will make the draw on the last day of April during the evening Australian time.

Till I can share new pics, here are some old ones.


  1. I would love to have my name added to your give away. Your crochet is wonderful! All of it! I've so enjoyed spending this evening reading thru your blog and seeing all of your gorgeous miniatures. The crocheted items are my absolute favorites. Do you create your own patterns? If not where do you get them? I know a lot of people adapt full size patterns into minis. That seems so difficult to me! LOL! Your teddy bears are just the sweetest things! Thank you! Carolyn

  2. How exciting Susan, please count me in!!! Yipee!

    Hope you get your camera issues sorted soon :)

  3. I suffered horribly every time I misplaced my reader and 6 months later I learned my laptop had a port that just had a plastic tab waiting to be taken out and used directly... ERRRRRRRRRRR! CM

  4. "The "old" pictures are beautiful.
    Wonderful your give-away and it makes me curious.

  5. Yay!

    Love, Susanne

  14. Oh my, so many lovely messages! Thanks for dropping by, your posts are making me excited!!

    To answer questions:-

    Carolyn, Mostly I make up my own patterns. Occasionally full size patterns will work in miniature but you need to work out thread and hook size of course.

    My Realitty (CM), My husband is trying to find a new card reader today. The reader in his small laptop doesn't like my ancient cameras card!

    Laura, My camera is truly Antediluvian, Noah used it to update God when he finished each section of the Ark!! No drivers. Old card reader had 4 different size slots, new readers are supposedly "one size fits all" don't actually fit this card. Dilemma!

  15. Your soft toys are amazing. So tiny and perfect!

  19. Oh, my goodness, count me in as well! I love the crocheted items. I never learned to crochet and just bought a book to learn but combined with my lack of time between my part-time job and three busy children, I may not get to try to learn!
