46 -Good times all round.

Well a few exciting type things have happened in the past week...ish that I thought I should share with you and realised I haven't yet. Woops.

First of all I won a blog competition. I never win things I enter online so I was most exited! The competition was over at Campfire Chic and I won a lovely printable calender from Batzy! Very cute, so I will definitely need to be digging out the printer again.

So while I was quite excited to have won that today I found out I had won another competition. What? I never win stuff online. Point disproved I guess. This was over at the lovely 30 Days of Lists blog. I won four (count them four) sets of printable lists from my total blog crush Wild Olive! I could not be happier. They are so amazingly cute. I just love the stuff on Wild Olive. Everything has little faces and smiles and it just makes me so happy, and now I actually own something. Woo! Again, printer needs to get set up pronto. **EDIT when I got the email from Mollie I got six sets of printables! Eeeee! Too excited. I also received an office based set and the Food Friends set.**

And as if all that wasn't good enough my octopus bag  was featured on the round-up post of Feeling Stitchy's March Stitch-Along. Apparently a lot of people had decided to stitch on a bag so my photo is right at the top. Exciting times yes?

Finally, here is a picture of the other cat iPod case I made for my high school friend Emma because she liked mine so much. She has apparently named him Jim already.

So he will be getting passed on to his new owner on Saturday. I did him a little different from mine and therefore the tutorial, just to experiment with how I made him. This time I sewed him inside out so the seams were hidden and I also used heat n bond on his ears so I wasn't fiddling about with sewing. Unfortunately CSI distracted me and I almost glued the heat n bond to my iron because I had it facing the wrong way. A lot of cleaning and swearing later I got it all off and he turned out great. I'm thinking if I make him again I might try lining it but I'm not sure. It's fun to make things multiple times and do it a little different and hopefully a little better each time.

Tomorrow is the first of April and lots of exciting things will be happening on the blog this month and going into the next I think. I'm very excited about it but it does mean I'm quite busy on the blog/craft front. You should see the amount of to-do lists I've got going, it's crazy. :)
