GIVE AWAY NOW CLOSED
Hello all. As per usual I'm playing catch up and to be honest I think that's the way it's likely to be for the rest of this year. It's either catch up or no blog posts at all.
I do keep toying with the idea of taking a break from my blog as I struggle to find the time to post. On the other hand it would be like losing the Rose from the Marmalade, as to me you are all as much a part of MarmaladeRose as I am. Without you lot out there and this blog, there would be no MarmaladeRose, the very thing that has spawned my little business.
Can you believe we've been sharing creative ideas and chatting for SEVEN years! Seven years this week in fact!
Well, we can't let a seventh anniversary pass with marking it somehow so I thought I'd have a little give away, in fact two give aways. You'll have spied the brand new MarmaladeRose cushion at the top of the page, well this is my first prototype cushion cover that I have made using a digital print of my original felt work, on fabric. When I get my act together a selection of cushions showing prints of some of my original felt art will be available, probably later this year.
I have to add this cover isn't perfect as I was so excited when the print arrived that I made the cushion using a remnant of green check fabric for the back instead of waiting to source faux suede to compliment the front but if you don't look at the back it's quite passable. So... I thought I'd give away this cushion cover (you'd need to provide your own cushion inner)
I also happen to have received a couple of spare copies of the March/April issue of 'Embroidery, the Textile Art Magazine'.
Such a super-lovely magazine, full of the most beautiful textile art and embroidery that you could ever wish to see. So much gorgeousness on every page, I know you'll all love it. Well I'm not quite sure how I managed it but...
I seem to have
wangled a spot
on page 25!
Honestly, I didn't bribe anyone! There was no hard cash or chocolate changing hands... I swear!
Anyway the lovely people at 'Embroidery' have sent me a couple of copies, so I thought I'd share them with you.
I have two copies going spare, so there will be two winners. I thought I'd also add one of my little hand felted and embroidered brooches too.
So to sum up...
All you have to do to enter the give away is leave a comment below making sure there is some way for me to contact you (no contact link, no prize).
I'll only count one entry per person so leaving duplicate comments won't count cos I'm strict like that. ;)
I'll use a random number generator to choose the winner.
The first person picked will win the cushion cover, the magazine and a brooch.
The second person picked will win the magazine and a brooch.
You have until my next blog post (I have no idea when that's going to be) to enter. So what are you waiting for? Spit-spot, seize the moment!
Till next time
love Fi x
