suprise in the post and a giveaway

Tomorrow my blog will be one year old so here's a little giveaway, its a placemat made with calico fabric trimmed with some cute Japanese fabric, just leave a comment on this post.
Today i got a lovely suprise in the post, i wasn't expecting any parcels so wondered what it could be. As soon as i saw it was from Penny..... I ripped open the package and inside was a early birthday present.
Penny had made this lovely crochet bag and inside was a book full of patterns in crochet, i dont know which one to start first. Thank you so much Penny !!

Oh that Penny! She makes the nicest things, doesn't she?

That is one cute placemat! I love Japanese fabric, but refuse to let myself buy any. We'd go broke in New York minute!

Happy Birthday too! This will be your 21st, right?
