Giveaway time



Hello,


 not much making going on around here over the last week or so.   Not feeling too great, nasty Fibromyalgia flare up.   So I thought I would potter and sort my Studio a little.   My little workroom was very cluttered with everything everywhere. A good sort and clear out did me the world of good.  I feel inspired to try some new ideas and feel much more refreshed.
~0~

So, as promised, here is this month's 'Giveaway'.  A Bunny handmade needle case and a handmade brooch, with miniature embroidery.   To be picked by the Random Number Generator thingy, next Monday 5th August, UK time.   Please just leave a comment, to be entered into the draw.


~0~

I have places left for my Workshop at Weston Park, Shropshire on August 24th, for hand stitched bracelet/cuff.    More details HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by. x

Sorry to hear you've been feeling dodgy but a forced change of activity can often be just what is needed.
Please pop me in the random generator thingy for a wee chance of winning.
Hope you're soon on the mend and enjoying the sunshine, Ax

Bee Lady said...

Don't know if this give away is good for people in the United States but this seems as good time as any to tell you I love your work.

Sorry about the fibromyalgia flare up. I was told I have it too. Seems to hard to think positive during those 'times' but you seem to be doing well with it. Keep on puttering away...the flare up WILL PASS! They seem worse during cold weather or stressful times.
