Yesterday was a lovely day – Rosie and I went along to the bridal shop for her final fitting and her dress is absolutely perfect. It is the most delicious confection of …. aha – you thought I was going to give the secret away didn’t you? But no… I promise to show you lots and lots of wedding photos afterwards, but until then the only thing I’m giving away is a Bloom and Grow embroidery kit.
I only had a very limited edition of these available for purchase (I was unable to obtain any more of this fabric), but I did keep just one or two back – until now…..
Yes, I have one of my Bloom and Grow embroidery kits to giveaway to a lucky blog reader. The kit contains all the ingredients you need to create the “Sound of Music” inspired stitchery above – all you need to add is a hoop and some lovely stitching time.
If you ‘d like the chance to win a Bloom and Grow kit then all you need to do is to leave a comment below. I’m planning to put together some more Bustle & Sew kits over the summer months and would love to hear your ideas for the first few using some of my designs … would you like more embroidery or perhaps a softie kit? It would be wonderful if you had any suggestions if you could include them in your comment.
The giveaway is open for the whole of this week, until midnight BST on Friday 20th June. The winner will be chosen by random selection and I will post worldwide. Good luck everyone! Sorry giveaway now closed.

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 …..
