I know, I am rather shocked that I have managed to find 100 things to say myself.
But before we get on with that, I've got more important things to do. Namely, blowing my own trumpet. Parp. There. You see, I got runner-up in the Folksy Upcycled Xmas Competition. In the Quality of Craft Work category, which I am really delighted about. This is what judge Louise Roe said:
"I’ve always admired the craftsmanship that goes into Stained Glass, and I particularly love this piece and the inspiration behind it. The colours from the individual bottles and glass sourced really compliment each other, and I like the fact that it is inspired by a Suzanne Vega song. Music is increasingly an integral part of the inspiration behind fashion and art, and there is fantastic expression in the little girls face."
Anyway, enough about that - more importantly, bidding has commenced and there are 146 wonderfully hand-crafted items up for grabs, with all proceeds going to Sue Ryder Care - when I last looked the total bids on items was up to £400, but I think we can do much better than that! Folksy are hosting the auction on Ebay for greater exposure and because people are more familiar with the format. You'll see I've added a link at the top of my sidebar, so when you've finished up here, go and have a little potter about over there and bid bid bid!
In fact, in order to check that you really are going to have a look, the proviso for my Giveaway is that you have to leave a comment telling me what your favourite item is (other than mine, obviously). And then you'll go into the hat to win a lickle wickle baby fledgling birdy. This one to be precise:
Everyone clear on that? Comments before 12pm on Wednesday 16th December please!
This is open to regular listeners and first-time-callers alike as well as far-flung-folk.
P.S. for some reason, I have decided it is now a GOOD IDEA to be on Twitter. So I am.
