Countdown to Christmas: Giveaway

Thanks to the lovely people at ICHF events I have 2 tickets for the Crafts for Christmas Show in Birmingham to share with you.

This fabulous show runs from 8 – 11 November 2012 at the NEC Birmingham.  I love these shows, so much inspiration and a chance to see all the latest gadgets and tools essential for us crafty types! This year, you also get entry to the Festive Food and Drink Show, Hobbycrafts and Art Materials Live – you can see why this event is already on my calendar – how could I miss it!

If  you would like to be in with a chance to win 2 free tickets, just leave a comment on this post (everyone who leaves a comment will be entered). If you aren’t lucky enough to win tickets, you can book in advance for £9 via the website, where you’ll also find details of show exhibitors and loads of inspiration to kick start you Christmas preparations. Well worth the investment for a great day out.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Entries  will be closed on 21st September and the winner announced on the 22nd. Comments on facebook or twitter won’t be counted – but if you retweet this post or share it on your facebook page after you’ve left a comment  I’ll enter you twice!

Finally sewed buttons on this crochet cardi, despite having a drawer full of buttons, I ended up using a scrap of liberty print to cover some blanks. Yarn is @thefibrecompany Luma, which is so soft. The blend of natural fibres  make it perfect for baby makes. I buy mine from @tangledyarnuk . Teeny scissors were bought from @beyond_measure_uk

Yes, I know "everyone" on instagram sleeps under crumpled linen duvets, but after 30 years we're still using the king size Thomas the Tank Engine duvet my mother in law made as a house warming present. The other side has a more femenine print so we can take turns. Secretly, this side is my favourite!!

There's something about this colour palette that makes me want to get my knitting needles out - and another part of me that wants to be prepared & find my recipe for oak gall ink!!! Yes, still early August, but part of me is already embracing autumn!!
