Giveaway win and a gift of cake-bunting!

I was really lucky to be the winner of the giveaway over at Hookin with laalaa,
it was the book 'Make!' by Cath Kidston and I love it!

Thank you Lynda! x

There are so many lovely things to make in it, including some gorgeous greetings cards (there are a few birthday's coming up soon..!) which are so cute.

I love this embroidery on this cardigan, it's so pretty and would be a lovely project to do...when I finish my other WIP's!

Aren't these egg cosies so lovely and pretty..!?

A couple of weeks ago I received a lovely gift in the post, from Jooles at Sew sweet violet.
Isn't this cake bunting just gorgeous, it's so sweet and will look perfect on Rose's 1st Birthday cake... okay, I know Jauary is a little way off yet..! But it is beautiful :-)

Thank you Jooles! x

  5. Hey Ashley!oh, I might just have to get Make! now, it looks great. Are you still considering getting an SLR? I 'inherited' my husband's older one ( he just got himself a shiny, new, amazing HD this and that one) a couple of weeks ago. It's great, although I haven't got a clue about most of the functions on it. The only downside is the size of it. Lugging it around is a pain, unlike just throwing your little digital in your handbag. Worth it, though!
    Have a good day! Kx

  6. What lovely parcels to receive through the post. Make looks to have some gorgeous things in it, I wouldn't know what to have a go at first. The bunting is so cute, it will look perfect on Rose's cake.

  7. What a lovely win! Enjoy the crafting! Cx

  8. Wow what a fabulous giveaway prize...hours of fun in there.
    thank you for your sweet mention Ashley, I am so glad you liked the cake bunting, i feel honored that it will grace little Rose's 1st birthday cake x
