Hard to believe it’s nearly the end of summer, and what a glorious summer we’ve had! Although I really, really love autumn and all the nesting, baking, preserving and crafting that accompanies the season, a wistful part of me is sad to know that my days crafting in the garden with a glass of Pimms are numbered...
I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, so to add some cheer to these final days of summer, I’m hosting my very first giveaway!
Following my review of The Hand-Stitched Home, the kind folks at Caroline Zoob’s site offered me a copy of the book to give away!
The Hand-Stitched Home is a gorgeous book; you will love it even if you have never attempted embroidery but are interested. I wanted to sweeten the deal even more, so I have put together a little craft kit so the winner can make the heart key fob like the one I made, which I added in the photo below (the finished heart fob and key are not included in the giveaway – I need them to get in my door!):
This giveaway bundle includes the book, two John James embroidery needles, 60cm each of the three shades of embroidery floss I used to stitch the tree, 60cm of twine to attach to the heart, and finally, a bit of the vintage tea towel I have used to make my key fob, the teacher gift, and the thank-you gift.

But I’m not stopping there...coming up in September is my first Stitch-A-Long, so that even if you aren’t the lucky winner of this giveaway, we can all link up and do some embroidery together.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thank you to all my followers!
