Fred & Ginger: A Giveaway to Enter!

by Helen on December 6, 2013

I haven’t had a giveaway here on my blog for quite a while so I think it’s time to put that right!  But before I tell you what it’s all about, I really must show you a picture…  In my last post I mentioned the problems of effective time management when living with two furry friends who feel that my life should be spent giving them everything they want.   In Daisy’s case this means playing and lots of walks.  She has developed a habit of sitting next to the table as I work and if I ignore her then she begins to stare – very hard indeed!

DaisyIt’s very hard to concentrate when she’s doing this, which of course is the whole point!  ”Work not going too well Mum?  Let’s go for a walk instead, or perhaps a nice game of tug-o-war will help refresh your brain.”  Little monster!

Fred & Ginger

But back to my giveaway….. I’m a bit of a Strictly Come Dancing fan (how dare they eliminate Ben?!?), and my Saturday evenings are filled with tinsel and twirling – on the TV that is – not me!  So I thought it would be nice to include a Strictly-inspired pattern in the next issue of the Bustle & Sew e-Magazine.  And here are Fred and Ginger, the two little ballroom dancing rats, seen above in profile, and below in all their glory ….

Fred & Ginger

 The giveaway is your chance to win a Fred or Ginger kit (your choice) that contains everything you need to make your very own little dancing ratty!  They’re quite large – about 12″ from ears to toes with moveable joints – buttons and strong threads and lovely button noses.  

Caption Competition

 To enter all you need to do is leave a comment on this post and, just for fun (not essential), suggest a fun caption for the picture of Fred and Ginger above.  The winner will be chosen by random selection.  The giveaway will close on Thursday 12 December and winner will be announced the following week.  I will post your Fred (or Ginger) kit anywhere in the world – and hopefully it will be with you before Christmas!  

Good luck everyone!
