Time for some winners from the p/hop competition.
The photoless hat from Rlynn has been claimed by Rlynn herself in echange for a donation. Givn we have more prizes than entrants I hope everyone's ok with that.

I will email/get in touch with everyone who left a comment asking them to list their top 3 preference of prizes, the sooner you get back to me the more likely you are to get what you want, and if you're in the states there's also an outside chance you'll get it before Christmas!

If you left a comment and don't hear from me please send me an email- hilltopkatie at gmail dot com
Calling Rachel A, you've not left anyway of contacting you, please get in touch!

A job has come up in Shetland. I was invited for an interview at a different school in shetland just before I accepted the job at my current school. AS some of you might have gathered from my tweets my current work life balance kind of sucks and is making me unhappy.

I'm wondering if it's fate?

PS. I hope you like the advent calender.

Real life is beating me around the head with a rather large shovel right now.
I'm going to extend the deadline for the competition until next weekend. I just don't have time to deal with the admin right now.
I'm extraordinarily sorry.

If you don't know what I'm on about it's not the previous post, it's the one before, you can win some beautiful handknits.... I'm contemplating entering myself, I need some more Christmas presents!
