Apologies for being such a slow coach but the past week has been very hectic with the minded children and then the grands at the weekend plus a sewing order to fullfil!
I've been racking my brain cell for something interesting for post number 200 and have come up with this .... I hope you like it :-)
Have you ever heard of the phrase "Six Degrees of Separation"??
Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the "Human Web") refers to the idea that everyone is at most six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare. (courtesy of Wikipedia)
In a strange way this has applied to me in blogland ..... I have met (virtually of course) with the daughter of the baby in the gorgeous picture that I use as my Avatar, Julie over at The Cloth Shed. Another virtual friend who lives miles away from me just happens to have lived a few minutes away from me as a child and attended the primary school where I take my minded children ... take a visit to Dancing on a Blade of Grass ... her photos are just fantastic!
With this thought in mind I would like to lay down a challenge for my 200th post giveaway ...... just leave a comment on this post, place a link to this post with the 6 degrees photo and undertake a post of your own on this subject.
The giveaway prize is a copy of the classic Reader's Digest Complete Guide to Needlework book ... a heavy tome with 504 pages absolutely filled with useful info on anything from Embroidery to Quilting (printed in 1982). I will also be including some vintage sewing, knitting & crochet items.
It's a very small world after all!!!
OOps forgot to say draw will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 30th August at 8.00 pm
