THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
I’ll be drawing the winner this afternoon!
Yup, that’s right. For the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway I’m offering not one, not two but….drumroll please…THREE prizes!
What’s this generosity in aid of, I hear you ask? Well, apart from the SMS giveaway, I’d been planning to do a giveaway this month to celebrate 2 years of Made in Oxford. 2 years! Hardly seems possible.
And the third prize is because three things makes a post, right?
So here they are:
Aren’t they pretty? I really want to send them off somewhere that they’ll be loved and put to good use. Let’s have a look at them, shall we?
This is for the yarny types amongst you. Regular readers of this blog will probably know that I’m a massive fan of The Yarn Yard yarn. The yarns are beautiful, the colours are always stunning, and they’re just a joy to work with. This is a skein of Machair 800, which is a laceweight mix of 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere. Yes, it’s pretty much as soft as it gets, and with that silk in there, it’s going to have amazing drape. As you might have guessed from the name, there’s 800m in this skein, and the colour is called ‘Smoke gets in your eyes’.
I think you can see why. It’s got soft variegations of pale purple and grey and is just the kind of thing you want to sit and hug before winding. Wearing anything made of this is going to be like wearing a fluffy cloud!
Now, I know yarn isn’t everyone’s thing, so I’ve also got some fabric for you. These are from the Etchings collection by 3 Sisters for Moda and are all in the Slate colourway. I’m not sure how they’ll show up on your monitor, but to me, they’re a lovely soft tone, cream and grey and really making you want to reach out and trace the patterns. And one is a map of Paris. How cool is that?!
And I promise they’ll be pressed before they go in the post!
Why three? Why not!! This is your bonus prize and was a fab find of mine recently.
It’s a Liberty jewellery roll in their signature print. Smooth and soft and pretty as you’d expect. And in case you were worried I’m fobbing you off with a cheap knock-off…
Isn’t it lovely?
