200 Follower Giveaway

Hi everyone,
I mentioned in my last post that I was approaching 200 followers and that my next post would be a giveaway to show my appreciation of you taking the time to visit my blog and for the lovely comments that you leave.
I've made this little set before and a lot of you seemed to like it so here it is again
a tiny sewing bag, needlecase and round pincushion.



Here's a picture showing the inside of the needlecase. All of the fabrics used are by Australian designer Lynette Anderson.




I made a little coin purse to give as a second prize for the runner up
The front has a stitchery design from Lynette's Quilting Cats and Dogs book.



The back of the purse and the inside are finished using the same fabric I used on the bag set




When I told my friend Angela I was doing a giveaway she kindly offered a couple of her beautiful pinbooks to include with each of the giveaways.
These little pinbooks are printed onto good quality cardstock and gently distressed for an aged look.
The insides are finished with wool felt, a tiny bow for decoration and three marking pins.

The winners may each choose one from this selection



inside looks like this



If you're not lucky enough to win one Angela makes the pinbooks to order. She has a wonderful range of designs as you can see here. If you're interested just contact me and I'll put you in touch with her.



So if you'd like to enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave your comment on this post only. I'll draw two winners on 28th February. Good luck!

Margaret
