A Little Giveaway and a Happy New Year!

Wow, I started my blog exactly a year ago (actually it was the 3rd, but what's two days), as a place to record my attempts at being creative. And I must say I am very proud of everything I have done, from my first pin cushion, to creating my own recipe for gluten free almond and lemon cake, to selling my makes at a Christmas fair.
 Last year (seems weird saying that) a lot of my Christmas gifts to family and friends were handmade. I've actually amazed myself with my growing crafting skills. They were far from perfect, but everyone loved their homemade presents, which included tote bags, zipped make-up bag, hot water bottle covers, apron and more. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos before giving them away...I even made a padded camera case for myself without a pattern and it turned out okay. I hope to make even more gifts this year...
I received lots of lovely gifts to help me along my creative path, including scissors, ribbon, glass jars for storing buttons etc, and the 'sew!' book by Cath Kidston, which has loads of wonderful projects for me to try out.

 So, to start the New Year I'm going to do my first ever giveaway!!!
The prize will be a handmade lavender heart cushion in your favourite colours.


To enter you need to follow my blog and leave a comment letting me know your two favourite colours. That's it! 
Closing date is on January 14th. A winner will be chosen at random the next day.
(updated on 3rd Jan. If you do not have a blog please leave your email address)

Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you  xx
