guess again!

Giveaway! Crochet pincushion by Emma Lamb

My apologies, I did mean to drop in over the weekend with this clue but yesterday I woke feeling a wee bit squiffy and today I have a full on stinking head cold, ugh!

Anyway, onto a clue - I can tell you that after 63(!) guesses no one guessed correctly yet and she has a 'y' somewhere in her name...

If you are going to hazard a guess for the first time remember to check my original post for the rules of the giveaway.

Now I hope you all don't mind, but as I'm feeling quite poop I shall wait til tomorrow to bring you this weeks colourful collection of inspiration. Wishing you all a wonderful monday and good luck with your guessing!

Emma, x

  2. ...and finally - how about - Milly?
    Better stop now, fingers crossed
    hope you are feeling better soon, our family have also been down with the dreaded lurgy and urgh we've been wading through tissues aplenty!

  3. Well my first guess had a 'Y' in it so won't mention that one again. This time I will go for Sybil. Not sure why just popped into my head!

  4. omgosh we could be here some time.

    How about Kitty?

  5. What about Elly? I hope you feel better soon.

  6. oh emma, it sucks I hate colds... now I can't resist giving you a couple of dubious remedies :P

    #1 is garlic (ok I'm french but that has got nothing to do with anything) preferably raw of course. I gave my other half a whole clove to add to his already garlicy meal the other week, worked a treat (+ added bonus of making me giggle although I realise that won't help you...)

    2# the obvious one, a swifty shot of whiskey with tons of lemon, honey and cloves. To be had while watching a good film, crocheting optional.

    Oh, and is it Lily?

    Get better soon xx

  7. I'm going to guess Evelyn this time around.

  8. Hoping that a good rest, and lots of fluids, will have you feeling much better soon.

    Your posts are always a delight!

  9. how about Amy?

    Think I'm coming down with some vile lurgy now!

  12. I'll go with Poppy

    Hope you feel much better soon.

  15. Hi Emma, my guess is Granny.

    My e-address is:

  16. As you seem to have previously used all the names of my chickens and cats except one it must be - Mary!

  26. But then again, if she's likes to keep current, she could be an Olympia. lol

  27. But no, she's probably a good old-fashioned Gladys.

  28. Feel better soon.
