And the Winners are....



Hello my lovelies. 
Well...What an overwhelming response to my little give away. Quite a surprise really as my blog posts over the last 12 months have been a bit a hit and miss and I thought you must have all got fed up of waiting around, teehee. I should have known better, what a loyal lot you are. 

Thank you for all of your lovely comments, I enjoyed reading every single one of them. It was especially nice to hear from so many of you who already own a piece of my work. I take it the felt handbags are holding up well and the wall art still raises a smile each day? I do hope so ;)

Firstly I must just give you the link for 'embroidery' magazine as I know it was requested and it really is a fabulous publication. If you like textile art, this it the cream of the crop, I really feel honoured to have my work in it. 

Secondly, Lillian, I'm sorry there is nothing in my Etsy shop, I am trying honestly. It's just that I never seem to be able to make enough! I am hoping to at least have some cushions available in there at some point this year. I have been working hard, as well as exploring digitally printed fabric I'm also in the middle of trying to find someone who can make some prints of my work. Not as easy as it sound as textiles are not easy to reproduce, you seem to lose the texture and vitality so it's all a bit up in the air at the moment.  I  also have my first event of 2015 on the horizon...
The Designer Makers Market at the Witham in Barnard Castle, County Durham. This is to be held on Good Friday and Easter Saturday, it's a great event with the best craftspeople in the region selling their own high quality pieces. Honestly, I'm sure I only just scraped in ;)

Right! I won't keep you waiting any longer. 
A drum roll pleeeease....
For the first prize of the 'Violet Hare' cushion cover, a copy of 'embroidery' magazine and one of my little hand embroidered felt brooches (everything in the picture at the top of the post). The winner is comment number...

Thankyou to everyone who left a comment.  I wish I could send you all a little gift but I think the postage would bankrupt me!
To Marty and Leslie, I'll email you shortly to arrange delivery of your goodies.

Till Next time
Love Fi x

Are there any books you can recommend that show how to do the felted pictures like your gorgeous hares? I'm the proud owner of one of your bunnies, bought a few years ago and still residing on top of the bookcase as in the photo I sent, and I've long admired your work and would love to give it a go - working on the theory you might be able to teach an old dog new tricks!
