Day Twenty Five and an Advent blog give away

Well I made it all the way through - a blog post every day until Christmas Day! Congrats to all those others who kept it up too. It was more of a challenge than I expected, especially as I couldn't share everything I had made in case the recipients had read it! Pics will now follow over the next few days as all orders/gifts have been safely delivered.

And to say thank you for sticking with my (sometimes inane) ramblings, I have decided to give a Christmas give away. I have been through the studio packing together some little bits of treasure as an inspiration pack. I have chosen two of my favourite colour ways -  purple and turquoise and you can see some of the items below:

These include beads in a tiny kilner jar, various pieces of wool, cotton, silk fabric, silk rods and cocoons, some small cabochons and a small piece of worked felt.

All you have to do is leave a comment between now and New Years Eve for one entry, or blog about this give away for a second entry. I don't mind which post you comment on, and if you link through please do make sure you leave a comment so I can add you to the 'hat' twice! If you win I would love to see what you make!

The draw will take place on New Years Day.

So all there is to say now is Merry Christmas to you all, and may you have the season you wish for, wherever you and your loved ones may be!


  1. Merry Christmas!
    My children are opening their stockings and eating chocolate (ages 16,18 and 21!) and the turkey is in the oven. Is it too early to start the damson gin?? after all the temperature is -11!!!

  2. Merry Christmas Sarah and well done for blogging every day. I hope you're enjoying the day. We've had our pressies and dinner is in the oven. Time for a sherry! ;-)
