Stash-Buster Challenge Update and a Big Welcome!

I have been contacted by Saga magazine to tell me that they have printed a round up of the best 50 bloggers aged over 50 for their September issue, and mine is one of the 50! wow how about that then. I feel very honoured to have been chosen especially as there are so many brilliant blogs out there. Only two of us have been mentioned in the Arts and Crafts section myself and Una of great balls of wool you can see the actual article here for a limited time only.
So if you are a reader of the magazine and are visiting my blog for the first time I would like to say hello and welcome and I hope that you enjoy your visit. You can find a list of more fantastic crafty blogs in my right hand side bar. Please take a look around and I would love to hear what you think. 

Stash-Buster Challenge Update

It's the end of the month again and nearly the end of the summer :( I am quite sad because it's been such a lovely one for once.  I'm hoping that the warm weather stays with us for a few more weeks at least.
So how has everyone been doing with their stash-busting? I would say really great! just take a look at the Summer link Party and you can see for yourself all the lovely things that everyone has been making.
I would like to welcome all the new stash-busters who have joined us during the summer, you can find their names listed here and their bogs featured on the right side bar.
If you would like to join us stash-busters just leave Ana or myself a comment.

Now as promised here are your favourite June projects.

Estella's Baby Cardigan
Regula's finger knitted scarf
Eileen's granny Patches Blanket Update
Judy's Mandala's

The Summer Link Party will be closing on Saturday evening so hurry and get those last minute Summer stash-buster projects linked up and don't forget to keep clicking on those beautiful projects, visit your friends and leave some nice comments.  I will be showing your favourites next month.
