Ipad cover give away & last weeks winner!

Good Morning everyone, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. If you're in the UK enjoying an extra bank holiday despite the weather!

Did you guess how many buttons where there? The heart bowl had 243 cute little buttons.
The closest guess had only 10 buttons difference. Well done Jenny ! 
Contact me by email and I will make a tissue holder specially for you ! 

Today you will meet another talented lady and be in a chance to win an iPad cover.

My name is Margarida, I'm Portuguese (from the sunny and warm Algarve) and
for 10 years I worked as an executive secretary. I'm currently living (and
crafting) in London where (and while) I'm eagerly looking for a job.

Friendly and smiling.A dreamer and a fighter who sets up goals for each

dream.The 4 most inspiring women in my life are my grannies, my mum and my

sister - my father is my gratest fan!
What inspires you?
Sometimes too many things!!! Anything can be inspiring: a tree in the park,
the sound of the waves on a summer night, the reds and the oranges of the
sunset, a smile, a picture, a book cover, a sentence or a poem. And most of
all my grandmother - she is definetely my biggest inspiration!
What is your creative space like?

Well, now I don't have a creative space... but at home I have a very large

room with a window to my back yard which has a lot of fruit trees.

Sometimes it can be very messy (ooppsss!!!) and confusing, so when this

happens I have to stop for a while and sort of tidy it
Since I've moved to London I haven't had the chance to sew a lot (only when
I went home for Easter), so I've been working on other things. I knitted a
few things in January, then I started drawing and now I've just started
practicing crochet.
Usually I finish everything I start, but there's a quilt I haven't had the
chance to finish and it's stopped since last September!!!
What is your favourite thing that you’ve created so far? why
Difficult to say because every finished item is always my favourite :-)))
But if I had to choose I would go for a quilt I made for my goddaughter
nearly two years ago.Pink is her favourite colour and I wanted to make
something she would keep for a life time, so I made her a quilt which she
keeps on her bed since then. I'm sure that in the next five minutes I'll
think of something else, but that will make this an impossible question to
