win an Easter bunny!

Over on my Facebook¬† page there has been a lot of enthusiasm about my little Easter bunnies, so how about a giveaway? If you would like one of these little bunnies…they are only wee, just 13cm to 15cm tall depending on the type of wool and the length I cut the ears…just leave me a comment here or on my Facebook page.

I will draw the winner on Sunday afternoon and announce the winner here and on my Facebook page. If you would rather make one yourself, you can sign up for my newsletter which will have making instructions!

* these little bunnies are only for decoration – they are NOT toys and are made with beads and trimmings that could be a choking hazard for a child.

let the festivities begin…with a giveaway!

My business sewing is pretty much finished for the year and now I feel I can take a breath, finish off a few Christmas gifts and get on with a bit of Christmas baking. A few of my Christmas presents may actually miss Christmas, but should reach their recipients early in the New Year. I have made some Christmas and floral Dalek pincushions as gifts but have a few more things to finish.

For us it’s just not Christmas without a trip to the American Museum at Claverton. It’s decorated for the season and this weekend there is also a craft fair and a sale of Christmas decorations.

Mark and I bought each other a Christmas decoration, although my choice may well stay out all year long. This beautiful glass toadstool is about 10cm tall, and very elegant.

Mark chose something more seasonal…

Mind you I am already excited about next year’s makes. I am waiting for an order of red velvet for some little red riding hood themed items to start my fairy tales range, and some tin boxes in which to make miniature fabric scenes for Spring and Valentines Day, and this strange parcel arrived from Plush Addicts

I am very excited about using the chalk cloth (in the tube) to make storage boxes with labels you can write on and bunting where you can change the message at whim.

FREE GIVEAWAY!!!

First things first…with the New Year looming I thought somebody might like a free calendar. I love taking photos and these calendars (one wall calendar and two desk calendars) are my chance to sift through the hundreds of photos to pick out some favourites. If you would like one, just add a comment here or on my facebook page and I will pick the three winners on Friday 20th!

Deerey Me shop is now open!

I am a little shakey and I am not sure if it excitement or nerves, but my shop is now open on Etsy:

It is surprisingly difficult working out prices and postage and wording for listings…and I am sure I will be doing some editing over the next few days and weeks…but the shop is open! I would like to ask a favour and if anyone spots any spelling mistakes or the like, please let me know. In return I would like to celebrate the milestone so if you comment here or on Facebook (I will accept a ‘like’ too https://www.facebook.com/DeereyMe), next Friday morning I will randomly select someone who has commented or liked to receive this Liberty print lavender heart (filled with lavender harvested last year from the lavender we have in the garden.

Now is the time to enter, while the odds are in your favour…who knows how many likes and comments there will by the next giveaway!

I really appreciate all the support my family and friends continue to give me…

…just a shame the cats can’t be a bit more helpful! I spend half my time making sure there is no cat fur where there shouldn’t be.
