Hang out the Bunting! 200th Post Give Away!

Hello all, today is all about bunting!
Quite appropriate really as this is my 200th post!
So....Lets hang out the bunting to celebrate!

I wonder if Sandi will recognise the little teacups that I have appliqued and then free motioned around? (some months ago Sandi generously sent me a bundle of beautiful teacup fabrics all the way from Oz saying 'she wondered what I would do with them!')

Well I hope she approves.

I think they would look scrummy hanging in someones pretty kitchen or across the front of a country dresser.

Look, once I got started I couldn't stop. 2 sets of teacup bunting and 2 sets of rose bunting. All very girly of course, but that got me thinking...what about the boys?

So here is a something a little more masculine but just as cute for them.
Camper van bunting!
I think I better explain the two items creeping into the top corners of the photo because I know all of you eagle eyes out there will be wondering what it is. All of my pretty bunting is for sale in Karens lovely cottagey shop Milkchurn Cottage and this is where I took the photo of the camper van bunting (last minute as usual). On the table with the bunting is a pair of lovely old cast iron weighing scales and the woody-birds-nest looking stuff is a gorgeous natural heart wreath. There you go, all cleared up, well I wouldn't want you losing sleep over it!

Well so far that's bunting for the girls and bunting for the boys and now here's some bunting for YOU!
Yes, as this is my 200th post I thought a little celebration bunting giveaway would be in order to say thank you for your support and friendship. It never ceases to amaze me how generous and caring our little blogging community is. Your always there with a kind word or encouragement and you always, always make me chuckle!

If you fancy some MarmaladeRose bunting for your dresser or kitchen or childrens bedroom or...anywhere else for that matter, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post. Couldn't be simpler!
(Don't forget to make sure I can contact you if you're the lucky one.)
I'll pick the winner in a weeks time.

(yesterdays view towards Hawes from Bainbridge in Wensleydale)

P.S. Please note the bunting on offer is the pink and green cherry-on-top (food) design.

Beautiful bunting and I love the bunnies too. We're moving to Oz next year so could take the teacups on a trip to their homeland and it would be lovely to have some very English bunting to make the place look more like my home. Congratulations on your 200th post :-)

I love all of these buntings, they are so gorgeous

The Weaver of Grass said...

Your sewing goes from strength to strength Fiona - have you thought of running workshops in our area - surely you would get plenty of takers. I would come for starters - why not try it one day - there used to be sewing classes in Leyburn but sadly the lady that ran them died suddenly. Have you ever investigated the possibility?

Kim said...

Wow what stunning bunting. Hi there - I've been lurking on your blog for a long time now but was too shy to leave a comment(!)

Love the fabrics you're using. What a lovely giveaway. Best wishes xx
