One World One Heart - Giveaway



I just heard about this event, which is masterminded by Lisa Swifka, from Jenna Louise at Quiltcrazygal and decided to join in. I thought it was a wonderful idea, and also, I've never done a giveaway yet, which is really shocking! This seemed a good way to begin, and hopefully make some new friends into the bargain.

So, I am giving away 2 books - Cloth Dolls by Brenda Brightmore, which I mistakenly bought 2 copies of! It's full of wonderful characters, more traditional in style, beautifully made and wonderfully explained, a really lovely book. There is also the Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery by Val Holmes, which I bought to try and improve my relationship with my machine. Well, that didn't work! But that is no reflection on this brand new, never been used (apart from the initial flick through, with me making "ooh, that's really clever" and " how interesting" noises!) book which is chock full of machine embroidery related tips and good ideas. I'm back with my trusty embroidery needle in hand.

I would also like to seek a home for poor Mrs Heffalump and her little son Sunshine, who are so very bored - as they have been wrapped up and put in the cupboard since they were "born", and are desperate to find someone to love and look after them! Could that kind person be you? They would be so grateful.


To re-home the Heffalumps, and add these 2 books to your craft library, all you have to do is to leave a comment on this post. It's that easy ! Please be sure you have a working blog, or if not, then do leave your email address when you comment - so I can let you know if you are the lucky winner! The Ride completes on 14th February at Midnight GMT when the winner will be drawn.To find out more, or join in, please click on the logo on my sidebar. There are some amazingly talented and creative people taking part!

So do climb on the Magic Carpet, and enjoy the ride!

Thanks for dropping in, and good luck.
