Blog Candy Winner!

Blog Candy Winner

Drum roll, fanfares, cheers and applause for the winner of my blog candy prize!!! 
No Vuvuzelas please.
You will remember the oppressive annoyance of the vuvuzela horns which wrecked the atmosphere of the last football World Cup. 
They were eventually banned at UK matches.
 Well it looks like we will have yet another annoyance to endure at the forthcoming World Cup in June.
Be warned the Caxirola will be there in full noise!
Here it is... 
the Caxirola Maraca

and the winner of my blog candy is .....

 Samski

 who, amazingly, was the first to guess and who was also spot on with 102.
I have since made another 40 pieces during my travels and thanks to easyjet delays! 
Well done to Sam and I will be making her a handmade needle case or patchwork covered note book. 
I'll be getting in touch to arrange the choices of fabric, colours etc.


More pics from my German trip.
The white building is the Rathaus in the town where my DD2 lives and it dates from the 13th century.



This is the Heinrich Heine Haus where my DD was married
 The wisteria was in full bloom a whole month earlier than usual.
We loved this little quality piece of graffiti and it looked somewhat like a Banksy.

Well done to Sam, fancy her getting the exact number! I love the photos - have to say that Sutton town hall doesn't look anywhere near as fabulous as the one in your DD's town!

I love your pictures from Germany! We will be going in June, stay for a couple days in Hameln with my brother and then go over to the island of Spiekeroog to meet with my husband's family.

Everything always looks yummy when you take photos in Germany... I think I would put more than a pound or two on if I visited!
