*****My first give-away!*****

I'm having a give-away to celebrate getting 50 followers... well, now actually 60! So we'll celebrate that number instead!

Hello to all my new followers, lovely to have you here.    :-)
It's such a nice feeling knowing that people do actually like to read my blog, I've well and truly caught the blogging bug and love it!


The giveaway goodies include:

* Cath Kidston needle case
* Cath Kidston tissues
* Cath Kidston make-up case (you could use it for anything though!)
* A brooch that I made from one of my Mollie Makes flowers.
* A string of granny bunting that I made
*A pretty purse from Accessorize


To enter you must:

* Be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post.

* If you blog about this giveaway on your own blog, let me know and I'll enter you twice for the giveaway.

* Feel free to enter even if you live outside of the UK.

* The giveaway will finish at 9pm on the 9th of August 2011.


Good luck!

  46. Hi Ashley! In ref to your question on my blog, I wet felt a large circle of felt, cut off the outside edge about 7cm deep and simply roll from inside rose to the outer petals. This makes the large roses. The smaller roses are made from the bit left in the middle of the circle. I'm going to do a little tutorial for these on my blog soon. Have fun - they are very easy!

  54. Thanks for your lovely comment on my post. We rent too. I love renting as you don't have to cough up if anything goes wrong with the heating etc.
    We owned a flat and sold it as it got too small with two kids but now love renting and are in no hurry to buy.
    Plus we couldn't afford to buy what we are currently renting and the kids are so happy.
    Hope all well in your world and big kisses for Rose

  129. Hi, first time to your blog and I'm addicted. The granny bunting is absolutely gorgeous, I would love to be able to make something like this. I'm new to crochet but I think I could become addicted, well that is if my 7month old son will let me! Better start with something a little more simple, me thinks. Found you through CocoRoseDiaries, a fantastic, eye catching blog from another super talented lady.
