Explore, Dream, Discover

I've been experimenting lately with some ideas for framed textile artworks. This one captures the words from the end of one of my favourite quotes - EXPLORE, DREAM, DISCOVER. I really enjoyed making it and have a few ideas for some more, which I hope to make once half-term is over.

I just need to get a frame for this one now and put it up on the wall in our lounge. A nice positive and inspirational thought in times of doubt.

A little mention

I was very excited yesterday to have been given a mention by Accidental Vix in her Heart Felt Folksy Friday post. Thanks Vix! She listed this felt envelope...

Talking of Folksy, I've decided to have a bit of a sale in my shop, so all of these items (and more!) are now reduced...

Hopefully this will give me the incentive to get making and add a few more items in the next few days, including some more baby quilts.

And the winner is....

Firstly, thanks so much to everyone who entered my giveaway for my 100th post!  Using the old-fashioned method of writing all the entrants names and putting them in a mug - the winner is....

Well done Lissy! If you could send me an email via the contact us page of my website with your contact details and let me know the colour you would like your felt envelope and the stamps etc to be and the wording that you would like on it and I will get making!

I will also be sending Lissy some fat quarters of a few of my favourite fabrics.

And a bag of home grown Whitstable lavender (cut back from my neighbours garden back in September and dried by me!). There might be a couple of other bits and pieces in there too!

Thanks for entering everyone else and I should say thank you to Hannah at Bubblebay as I think she did a link about the giveaway as according to my Stats lots of people found my blog through her. Unfortunetly, I can only see the header of her blog and none of the posts!  (something to do with shabby blogs not working with Internet Explorer I think...but that is another story!!!).

A Love letter giveaway

I had planned on doing a giveaway for my 100th post, but I haven't been very organsied and got another post in so this giveaway is for my 99th post! The felt I have been sewing with recently has been making these sweet Valentine envelopes and for my giveaway I am offering one of these envelopes, personalised with whatever wording you would like! 

You can choose between red, pink, yellow or purple felt and any of those colours for the stamp and heart. They are perfect to keep a lovely handmade card, photo or letter inside or you could even fill them with sweets, jewellery or make-up inside.
Also as part of the giveaway, I'm going to sort out some fat quarters of a few of my favourite fabrics and probably a few other little bits and pieces too.   

Time is running out though as I need to get it made and posted in time for you to give to a special somebody on Valentines day, so to enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave me a comment before 6pm (UK time) on Monday 7th February and you are automatically in the draw.
Please spread the word! Many thanks.

Ps if you don't want to enter but would like to buy one, they are currently on sale in my Folksy shop!
