A Rather Fab Giveaway

COMMENTS ON THIS POST ARE NOW CLOSED.

Thanks to the very lovely people at Love Crafts I have three signed copies of Mel Clark’s Knitting Every day Finery to give away to lucky Bakers and Makers. Consider it an early Christmas present and a thank you for all your support and encouragement throughout the year!

To be entered into the giveaway draw, all you need to do is leave a comment here, telling me your “most wanted” crafty gift this Christmas (I can’t make any promises, but who knows, maybe  your loved ones will read this).

The draw will close on the 6th December at 12 noon (UK time) and I’ll announce the winners on the 7th.

Mr T will oversee the draw and ensure fair play.

This draw is open to everyone, but because of postage costs, overseas winners will have their book sent surface mail.

Good luck everyone x

    Oooh, I’d like a whole selection of different exciting wools, to try out lots of different projects with and see what exciting things I can create with wool.

    I am coveting lots of British breed wool and wool dyed by Brit dyers. It’s all part of my plan for next year to knit only British wool and support the local. ;)

    What a beautiful blog page. I think my only crafty related wish is to have something to organise my needles, especially the circular ones because the cables tend to unravel and look messy, and the tips tend to roll all over the drawer where I keep the whole lot!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
