Hi de Hi Campers!
I’ve an announcement to make: It’s my birthday & as there are some lucky threes going on here I decided to give three things away in a giveaway to you lovely readers. OK, first of all you have to tolerate me accounting for the threes before I get onto the goodies.
- 3rd February is the obvious one – the date of my birth;
- 3 day weekend for me as I am taking Friday off – a fantastic reason to celebrate I declare!
- Er, well, there is a three in my age this year too. (And it’s not at the beginning!)
And that makes three lucky reasons for three prizes.
So, what’s up for grabs? I thought quite long & hard about this, in fact I have been doing lost of creative thinking about you gorgeous bloggers out there, & will have something else exciting to test on you later this month, but for now, let’s get to the
mercenary bit! reward…
Up first, in lot 1 is my signature ric rac. I am spreading ric rac love in zigzagination & will make it easier for you to join in with 3m each (brand new) of red, bright yellow, black velvet as well as some gigantes white (which would look lovely at the hem of a summery skirt methinks) .
Lot 2, can you guess what’s coming? Happens to be a brand shiny new pattern.
New Look 6000 for those of you who have been admirers of NL 6000 Fest’s party-goers !! Woo hoo!! Just make sure when you make it you tell me & we can have another party update If you haven’t seen the wealth of inspiration brought by other sewsters out there go check out my roundup.
And lot 3 is a book, but rather a special one. You know I like making jewellery, well I bought this book for me ages ago as I loved the pretty flower jewellery. Beautiful Handstitched Jewellery by Emi Twakiri is ideal for anyone who can sew a bit or crochet but doesn’t have pliers & tools for normal jewellery making. This is very much fabric & thread based. The designs are unusual, crafty/ arty & very pretty – bobbles, flowers, crochet cherries, tassles- gorgeous.
I really do love the designs & have earmarked some of them for “another time when I feel like it”. But it’s as new for someone else to take on & be inspired by.
If you want to be entered into this giveaway please leave me a comment telling me which prize you’d prefer to win (yes, you can enter all if you want!). I’ll run this giveaway for about a fortnight, closing it on midday 18th February. And I’ll post anywhere !
Oh, & I’m not likely to get replying to any comments as I’ll be SO busy being birthdayed so can I say in advance, you are all lovely, I do appreciate any comments you leave everytime you leave them- thank you for sticking with this ol’ badger & encouraging her! I cannot describe how much pleasure I get from the online sewing/ knitting/ crafty community xxx
