A selfish brag post… giveaway win!

Yep, this post is purely to show off. Well if I can’t show off to you, who can I show off to?
The lovely Sharon at Creativity & Family ran a fantastic giveaway last week. And, yes you guessed it – I won the sewing bundle!
So here I am showing you all what I got…
It came wrapped in fabric – wow, my daughter and I were impressed by that idea! The ribbon was actually tied in a nice bow, but I untied it before I thought to take photos.

I love the chalkboard tag! I’m keeping that! πŸ™‚

And here’s what was inside:

Sharon is always leaving lovely comments on my blog – and she must be just as lovely in real life because she even thought to add a little knitting doll for my girls! Well, Sharon, my eldest was very happy with that as you can see – and we’ve started her off already πŸ™‚

Look at all this prettyΒ fabric!!

I’m going to use it to make things just for me! One piece will be made into a sunglasses case. As for the others… suggestions?! I realised I’m not used to making things for myself anymore!

My photos are a bit rubbish, but if you zoom back up you can see a pack of pretty floral buttons, too. This package oozed girliness!

I had a surprise gift, too, which wasn’t detailed in the giveaway post.

Ahhh – I have been wanting some of these scissors! I’m so pleased. I do like a bit of embroidery!

Do you see that adorable little cat attached to the handle? Awww, what a lovely touch. The giveaway entry rule was to comment with the name of a cat – I chose Sonic and Shadow. (I got two entries; one for being a follower of the blog). Sharon’s son chose the winners and he chose Sonic. So that is the name of the little cat on my scissors!

That’s the end of my brag post. I hope you’re not too jealous!

  1. That is one cool bundle. Lovely fabrics and the packaging is very impressive. Speaking of giveaways, I don’t know if you’ve seen that you have also won the Emery dress pattern giveaway on my blog a few weeks ago. I don’t think I had your details but since I was away the pattern is still with me, so if you still want it, send me an e-mail with your address so that I can send it to you.

    • OMG I haven’t seen!!! So sorry! Must have been at a time when I wasn’t reading blogs for several weeks. Ahhh yes I would love it, thank you so much! Will head over to your blog now…!


  2. How exciting! What a lovely parcel to receive. I had one of those knitting dolls as a child – we used to produce yards and yards of knitting in assorted colours from leftover yarn! I can’t remember what we actually did with it once it was knitted!

  3. I’m glad you enjoyed your parcel Beth. It’s lovely to see your daughter so pleased with the doll, I had a lot of fun with mine when I was a girl πŸ™‚ It’s great you are thinking of making something for yourself, I shall be interested to see what you make. I’ve just myself a little sewing ‘book/case’ so I guess that could be one idea. There are probably loads of ideas out there for makes with FQ’s (what would we do without Pinterest!!) Enjoy. Sharon x

    • I think there are loads of ideas and sometimes that’s the problem! πŸ™‚ At first my daughter was like “but I can’t knit” but she soon realised that she can with the doll! I used to have one as well – I had to have a go too! πŸ™‚ x
