Easter Weekend Giveaway

It has been a while since my last giveaway - and I felt the time was just right, now that my new textile designs are coming to life - yes, it is time this Easter Weekend to give a small thank you to you for reading and visiting my blog.

So, if you would like to own this new design - one of my new knots brooches - please leave a comment here and to make it more interesting, and as this is traditionally here a weekend of gardening, please let me and others know your favourite flower! It can be garden or wild.... This is open to anyone, worldwide. (please note: the antique dolls house chair is not included in the giveaway).

You have until Monday evening 7pm (UK time) to leave a comment to enter the random draw. If you cannot leave a comment or are feeling a little shy then you may email me (ccullis at gmail dot com). Or you can follow me over at Instagram and leave a comment there - my Instagram is: Thread7

I'll be spending a little time in my tiny garden over this bank holiday weekend but mostly I'll be continuing on with my new work - I have many more knots to make! A new selection of textile designs - including a selection of knots brooches and handwoven pillows will be in my Etsy shop next week - more detail to follow.

I look forward to pulling a name out of my Easter bonnet on Monday evening! Until then, many thanks and enjoy your Easter....

I've still got more work to do, but here's a small look into my new collection of textile designs.... I am working with my own plant-dyed, handspun wools and wool/silk yarns, creating small pillows and brooches and more....

I am currently working on a much larger knots piece - and I'll hope to have that completed to share with you in a few days.

This new collection of work will be ongoing - I'll start to add new pieces to my Etsy shop when it re-opens next week. More details to follow.

More soon.
