If you want to let everyone know that you're taking part in the fun, I've created a little 200px button for you to display on your blog as well -
I've also started a Flickr Group for my patterns, so feel free to upload your makes onto the group board so I can see them (I'm nosey and I wanna see them!).
And finally, I had actually planned to get this post up on Friday, but alas, some major renovations have just started on our house and so I've been without a bathroom the entire week and for most of it, without lights, some power and the internet. Oh the joys of renovations, I can't wait for them to be finished! For those of you who are interested, I have actually started a little blog following our renovations over here if you'd like to have a nosey. There are only 2 posts up at the moment, but I'm planning rather a few more, especially after this week, the change has been rather dramatic (albeit dusty and messy!).
