Yay I won something!

Just catching up on my emails and such as I have been busy and found that I'm now the owner of the Treasure Hunt prize on UKSwap!

This is the same pic that is on the UKSwap site but aren't they beautiful?! I love the bags in this etsy shop.
The fabrics are so gorgeous!

Thankyou to the UKSwap team- Delle and Roo for hosting the swap this year and for (albeit randomly) picking me for the winner!

OK, too tired to type anything else but will post soon. As soon as I find the USB lead for my laptop I'll be able to post about my own achievements with my very own photos!

Contain yourselves....

.... for the big news I have.
I'm a qualified Biomedical Scientist! WOOOHOOO!

There said it. It's been a darn hectic few weeks hence the lack of posting or online activity. I'd pretty much banned myself from using the internet whilst working as I get distracted and 2 hours later I'd still be looking at yarn and patterns and no further ahead. Lets get the formalities out of the way first....

This weeks UKSwap Question:
Films is the topic this week:

Do you prefer to watch films at home or at the cinema?
Both. I love going to the cinema and scoffing popcorn, drinking far too much coca cola and almost fainting when the guy at the pick and mix stand tells you how much it is. Also.. I love watching an old fave on the sofa with my favourite blanket, cuppa, sweets/biscuits/cake.
What is the last film you saw?
Embarrassing..... In her shoes with Cameron Diaz in. I'm not usually one for heartwarming dramas that make you cry but I loved it and yes I cried at the end!
Have you seen any films more than 10 times? If so which ones and why.
Any of the original Star Wars... Armageddon (close to 50)... xXx anyone who loves Vin Diesel will know why ;o) fact anything with Vin Diesel in I've watched at least 10 times!... Coyote Ugly... Usual Suspects... Dogma...
What film do you recommend that people should see?
That's a tough one... Dogma. Funny, weird, has a message.
If you could be any character from a film who would it be?
Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)- She got to snog Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Lush (if now about 70)

Any other news? Er well no. I haven't had much of a life lately so not a lot going on really. I've joined the Secret of the Stole 3 KAL which I'm excited and nervous about. I'm not mega experienced with lace, but I thought that the staged KAL might suit me. However, I do think I'll fall hopelessly behind and be lagging behind all those experienced people. Ah well.

I've chosen plum Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight with a mixture of lilac and irredescent clear beads, got my 1mm crochet hook, completed a swatch in malabrigo whilst waiting impatiently for yarn, started another in project yarn. Almost ready! The first piece of the pattern is out Friday 15th August.

Well, I'm catching up on Private Practice (Grey's Anatomy spin off) while Seth naps.... oh the quiet!
