For the past few years I’ve held a giveaway on St Patrick’s Day in honour of my Irish grandmother.  But this year I’m afraid I haven’t had chance to arrange one – not only am I busy with Rosie’s wedding, but – and I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before – she and Dan are moving into their first home of their own this week, and I have been nominated as decorator-in-chief.  So lots to do!  However … all is not lost!

My friend Jacqui, of Flapdoodledesigns, is hosting a wonderfully generous giveaway over on her Facebook page.  She’s offering the chance to win one of her beautiful patchwork fairies – created especially for you and handpainted in the colours of your choice.  To enter please just pop across to her page and leave a comment.

Before announcing the winner of my Valentine Bunnies giveaway, I’d like to thank everybody who entered.  The weather here has been so grey and stormy, but I’ve felt so cheerful reading all your lovely comments and dreaming of warmer days to come ….

Rather like my naughty Miss Daisy – seen here snoring gently after a morning’s play with her best friend Lionel.  I’m sorry I don’t have a prize for everyone – I so much wish I did.  But after working the random number generator I’m pleased to announce the winner is comment number 3 – that’s Kathleen Robertson.  Well done Kathleen and as soon as you send me your postal details your prize will be on its way to you!  There’s still a chance to win my completed Valentine Bunnies stitchery over on my Facebook page though …..

And finally a quick peek at another project coming in the March issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine

Hope you like it!

Valentine Bunnies Giveaway

by Helen on February 1, 2014

Phew … the February issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine has been now sent out to everyone (if you are a subscriber and haven’t seen your copy in your in-box please be sure to contact me soonest so I can make sure you receive it safely).  

The description for the February issue in my store says that it  ”celebrates the earliest signs of spring, with projects for Valentine’s Day and some Easter bunnies too”.  Which is completely true.  However ….  even as I was typing this, I was thinking to myself,  ”Why should bunnies be limited to Easter?  What about some Valentine’s bunnies too?”  And so I have adapted the bunny template from this month’s magazine to create a giveaway for you….

A chance to win two adorable little patchwork bunnies applied to a vintage cotton panel surrounded by a sweet spring blossom garland printed ready for you to stitch, with space below the bunnies for you to stitch names or any text you choose.  The finished garland is about 6 1/2″ in diameter.  And … as well as the panel itself, I’m delighted to be able to include two cute thread bobbins generously donated by the lovely Sandy from her wonderfully named Etsy shop “Giggle Snort Society!”  Please do pop over and take a look at her selection of designs – they’re pretty and practical too!

To enter my Valentine bunny giveaway please leave a comment below and – just for fun – please tell me your favourite sign of spring!   The giveaway will close at 12 midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 5th February and I’m so looking forward to reading your comments!
