Thank you giveaway.

GIVEAWAY TIME!
 Hello all. At last it's giveaway time. YAY! It's my way of saying thank you for taking time to read my little blog and especially for leaving all of your lovely comments. Don't underestimate the power of a kind word, I don't share my 'down' times on my blog as this is my happy place. This is the only little corner I have any control over and I like to keep it as rose-tinted as possible but recently small parts of my life have been unfairly 'overcast', so to tippety-tap into blogland and have such lovely feedback from you all has been a real tonic. I appreciate the time you take out of your busy day to say a few kind words that make my days so special. Yep, you make me smile, you make me chuckle but most of all you make me feel that my craft and artwork has value. Thank you. 
So I've made something especially for this giveaway.
One of my most popular 'makes' usually selling for about £30 but this one is a little different.
I hope you like her as much as my normal embroidered bunnies. She's made from the most gorgeous Sanderson fabric. I discovered a small piece folded up in the bottom of a basket and quickly snaffled it up as if it was a Faberge egg at a car boot sale.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this pretty bunny is to leave a comment at the bottom of this post. Simple, just let me know you'd like to re-home this bunny. There are no hoops to jump through.
II
Best be sharpish if you fancy your very own Easter Bunny!
I'm not telling you how long you have ;)
Once again thank you all.
love  Fi x

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous, and I think that bunny would sit very nicely in my home!

daydream in colour said...

Oh that bunny is so beautiful that I would LOVE to have her. She'd be all mine and the kidlettes wouldn't be allowed near her!

Ana Reyes said...

It's so beautiful and cute that I'm afraid I won't have original words to impress you...If it was mine I would put it close to the sofa where my mother spends her days (90 and with Dementia). She doesn't pay much attention to many things but she loves the animals I crochet for her (teddy bears, your cat, ducklings, ladybugs, etc.)
I know I promised you sometime ago to translate your pattern to Spanish but the last year Mom has had lots of trouble with her health and she takes almost all of my time. But it's on my TO DO list...

Gorgeous bunny- I am sure she will be loved in her new home and the lucky winner will cherish her for years to come.

Claire said...

Hey Fi, another lovely bunny and those polka dot ears are too sweet......

I would love to have a bunny from the Dales find a new home in my neck of the woods...

Hope the lovely, Spring weather is holding out, I imagine you are going on some beautiful walks at the moment. Enjoy your weekend,

Claire :}

Annie said...

Oh! I know a little girl who would dearly love that sweet little bunny.

Danette said...

All I can say is I'd love her FOREVER! And since I can't live next door to you like I wish I could, I'd love to have a little bit of you here with me....

Cheryl said...

Oh. (Jump up and down excitedly.) Your bunnies are all gorgeous. We'd promise to give her lots of love.

Maggie Ann said...

What a beauty...when I think give-a-way...I wonder if I could part with something so lovely that took up some of my life to craft! Whoever gives your bunny a new home, she will be loved for sure. I've enjoyed your blog very much, and the way you talk to us. I too want my blog to be 'upbeat' and cheerful. You make us smile too!

cupcakejojo said...

Me, me! Please pop my name into the hat for a chance to give Bunny a home! I completely understand your rose tinted wants for your blog space. It's total escapism isn't it x

Jo x x

The Vintage Gardener said...

Please count me in too. I already have one of your embroidered bunnies and all bunnies need a bunny friend. Hope that doesn't sound to greedy!

Jacquie said...

Hi Fiona, I LOVE you Sanderson bunny :0) She is gorgeous and the blue polka dot ears are perfect. I would love to be entered in your wonderful giveaway.
Jacquie x

Ioana said...

Wow, she is beautiful! I'd really love a chance of keeping her :) x

jill said...

How beautiful is bunny,I have a little space that would just suit her in my sitting room where everyone could see her but only my 3 grandsons could cuddle her they would love her.Im sure where ever she goes to live she will be loved.Love Jill xx

carrad said...

I'm not sure I deserve your beautiful bunny as much as some of your other posties but I would so much love to win her. My two grandbabies would adore her (from a distance, of course!) Please add me to the list xxx

Inthesky said...

Bunny! I am sure I could make that bunny feel at home :) Hooray for Blogland and Rose tinted spectacles :) xxx

April Cottage Ramblings said...

Good Morning Fiona, what a beautiful bunny. I know exactly where she would live. My daughter is one of the kindest people I have the pleasure to know. She has several rescue rabbits, and any spare cash she has goes towards a local rabbit rescue centre. She also helps out there when she can. So I know your bunny would have the best home ever living with my Katie.

lemonade kitty said...

Your posts are always full of all the lovely things you make and that bunny is gorgeous. I used to have a pair of curtains in that very fabric but I was persuaded to leave them in the house by the new owner and I've always regretted it so to have a bunny made in that very same fabric (even at my age!!) would be heaven. Thanks for such a lovely giveaway, Lucey x

Monique said...

I love all your bunnies and like to participate in your give away. This bunny would fit lovely in my bedroom!

Groetjes, Monique

samantha said...

ooh lovely. would sit very nicely on my bookcase. samantha xx

The Krafty Cupcake said...

What a fabulous giveaway! Bunny is lovely and I would love to provide a new home for her. As I am moving soon too it would be lovely to share our new adventures together x Sue x

daydream in colour said...

Oh Fi, I know I've already commented but if it's a random number and I happen to win, please give it to Ana Reyes. She's so deserving and I would love to know it helped make her mother happy.
xx Susan

The Weaver of Grass said...

Love your Sanderson bunny Fi.

What has happened to Milk Churn Cottage - we came through Hawes and it seemed to have closed down. Do hope not as you had such connections with it.

Betty said...

Your bunny is beautiful, I would love it and cuddle it often and it would have a spot on my pillow. I hope the cracks in your real world are small ones and can be mended. I love your blog, it is escapism for me too, a few moments of prettiness, inspiration. lots of admiration and even a teeny bit of envy for the things you create. Bettyx

Boxoftrix said...

She it totally adorable! and the best use for such a beautiful piece of fabric. This easter bunny would get pride of place in my little studio. I know I wont win her, there are too many posts here but I wanted to tell you any way how lovely she was.
Luccky you getting so many posts for a givaway! I put out a post about doing a givaway and got zero response....felt qute sad about that...but Im over it now, I can totally relate to your blog being your happy place, for some it is their happy place to visit :)

I just love your blog, have been visiting quite a long time but never left a note, I'm sorry for that. It always makes me feel so good to read about your life and your creations. I hope everything is getting all right.
Sandra Sanderson seems to be an adventurous bunny - I'm sure she would love to live near the Alps, don't you?

Wyrley Bird said...

I absolutely love this little guy! i would love to give him a home, he would look gorgeous sitting on my bed but maybe better still on my settee where everyone could see him, he is way too lovely to hide away!

karmaperle said...

Know just the place for her :-)

mckinkle said...

Morning!

Personally I think the Sanderson Bunny is just the best! Id call her Sandy!

I'd just love to be in with a chance to rehome her as I'd love something just for me instead of me giving away all of my homemade things! A tad selfish I admit! She'd accompany me here in my crafting pod and keep an eye on me!

Hoppy Easter Fi
Keryn x

Petunia Pill said...

Your bunnies are all adorable! I would love the chance to make her a part of my family! Annette

Sam said...

My son said he would like to re-home your bunny because his carebears need a bunny mummy to look after them when he is at school lol xx

Milly said...

Oh how absolutely adorable your bunny is, my new baby grandaughter would surely love to have him close beside her always as she grows. She is far to young for chocolate at Easter time but a Bunnie would be just perfect......Thank you for the chance x

Kandi said...

Wow she is stunning, please add me into the hat I would love to re-home her. There is a cosy space on my bed between my cushions where she would be right at home ;0)
Kandi x

Judith said...

This rabbit is every bit as beautiful as the embroidered ones you make and I just love her! Please include me in your draw as I'd love to win her - no young children to play with her and pull her ears - just me to love and cherish her. Judith x

Tracy K Nixon said...

Oh my!What a gorgeous little bunny! My family would love to adopt her! We have lots of love to give, and as a house bunny, she would never be lonely!

Unknown said...

She is a beautiful bunny. Full of the promise of the pretty flowers of spring. I would love to home her in my daughter's bedroom. I have only once sticthed a soft toy - a pretty bunny too in delicate greys, pinks and yellows- for my daughter's birthday. This bunny was much loved and used to sit on the window ledge just above my daughter's bed. Now my daughter has left home and taken the bunny with her. I miss it sitting there and would love to put another one its place to make the room welcoming for when she visits.

Unknown said...

Oops my name is missing from my comment above, sorry. liceIts A

SharonK said...

How pretty the little bunny is. If I was lucky enough to win her she would take pride of place on mt mantlepiece for sure. btw I love your blog and have been reading it for years.

Eli said...

This bunny is gorgeous and if she came to live in our house we would name her Sophie (my daughter calls all her cuddly toys and dolls Sophie) and make sure she's well looked after. She could sit and look out over the garden and maybe even come out for a picnic with us; if she's good, that is ;-) she would definitely be loved.

mrspao said...

She is a gorgeous bunny! I love seeing the wonderful things you make.

Vanessa said...

She's gorgeous - love the spotty ears! V

The Fairy Glade said...

I am swooning, just the thing to go on the mantle shelf with my bunny garland. Dev x

Kay said...

How beautiful she is!! My daughter would love her forever, to replace Holly her rabbit that died at the grand age of 7. So kind of you to specially make her for us to look at and dream about.

Sonia said...

Oh she (because obviously she's a she!) is just gorgeous! If I were lucky enough to be able to give her a new home she would be all mine and put on a high up shelf somewhere where the littlies couldn't reach!!!!! In fact, I think she'd be right at home in my little craft room where she could snuggle down amongst scraps of fabric :) Happy April, Sonia x

scrumpy said...

Awwww forever home offered here, absolutely adorable bunnykins x

Susan said...

When it's warm and sunny and the sky is blue and the clouds are fluffy white, she would come and sit on the shelf in my shed and watch me making porcelain buttons.

pam said...

I am not about to turn down a chance to win a beautiful bunny made by your hand. Please include me in the drawing, and If by some remote quirk of luck I should be the winner, i promise she will have the best home ever!

I live in Auckland, New Zealand and check in from time to time. I grew up in Lancashire and then lived in Holmfirth and your blog helps me connect with my homeland.
Your little bunny will be a tangible link to home.

Absolutely beautiful bunny, as always. Winning isn't everything as your blog is such an inspiration to us all. I have rediscovered my sewing skills since reading and find that I can do most things, the only thing that is defeating me is crochet but I'll get there!!
Keep it up Fi. I live in Yorkshire too, aren't we lucky!!

Claire Glover said...

What a lovely bunny! I love the idea that it was made from a scrap of fabric that might otherwise have been thrown away but you have put to good use.

You have now inspired me to look through my own scrap basket to see what I can find!

alisonb2 said...

Oh boy! Soooo many people! I may be too late but I know she would be very welcome here. Take care and have a Happy Easter.

knittienora said...

Noelle the dreamer said...

I was just 'visiting' Lemonade Kitty and spotted your site (the name reminded me of the many things I am homesick for!). I would just love to add my name to this giveaway if (now) living in the Pacific North West Coast is not an obstacle?
Much obliged (I just know the little girl who would love this bunny!).
Happy Easter! I plan to stop by again!

Linda said...

As the person who inspired my to start felting, how could I not leave a post? If I have a short space of time to visit blog land, you are one of only two sites I make a point of checking regularly as you do truly inspire me to find that 'few minutes' to be creative whilst I'm doing my teacher training. Keep calm and keep creating !! Linda x
