a give-away!

Hello everybody and a wave to december. I've been putting together a lovely give-away for you today.
You that has provided much friendship, inspiration and creativity, and also some well needed escape and solace!

November was a tricky month here in the little red suitcase house. Much sensitivity abounded, with trying and testing times for all. I'm sure this is also the case for many of you as we juggle all the different aspects of our lives.

I'm trying to be present in my life and create something here. I really have enjoyed all your comments and ideas. I try and reply directly back by email, which is why you won't see many replies on the comments. I am sorry if you are a no-reply blogger, as I won't be able to do that!



So without further ado, I would like to offer all the stars in my bloggy universe the possibilty of winning these my little red suitcase goodies. You will find the lovely 'Granny chic' book by dottie angel and ted and agnes. I managed to get a copy at a really good price and immediately wondered who else I could get a copy for!

I was sad to note that I could't think of any granny chic loving friends where I live, and made a note to myself to find some!! then I realised it would be fun to put it in a give-away. I will also put in some of my vintage stash squares. There are 18 in total, all different colours. They are 10 inches square and will hopefully encourage some happy making projects.



Lastly please choose your favourite heart from below and let me know in the comments.




They are happy to travel wherever they need to. Obviously not the suitcase or my lovely crochet cloth, where would I be without those! and it would be nice if it went to one of my lovely followers, if possible. So please follow if you can, and make sure I can contact you. So leave a comment if you would like to join in and remember to choose a heart. I will pull out the winner from my hat on saturday 15th december.
so good luck!

hope you find some deliciously sunny and crafty moments in your week,

Heather x

  16. I saw the Ted and Agnes stall yesterday at the Country Living Fair in Harrogate - they had beautiful things. I cannot decide between the 4th and 5th and then again I like the 2nd. If I really have to choose it would have to be the 4th one with the pretty blue edging.

  17. I follow you, but have never commented. I do love your crafty makes and lovely and sometimes courageous ramblings. I too am a stitchy sticher, a maker of handmade happiness and a blogger of sorts.

    I am at this very moment waiting for my copy of Granny Chic to be delivered by my trusty postie...I can not wait to get my making fingers on it :) Your offering of fabric is delicious and delightful, oh the possibilities are endless...

    I love all of the hearts an find it most tricky to choose but one...although I do have a soft spot for red crocheted trim :)

    Have a happy day

  26. I have discovered your blog through House of Humble and I am so glad I have. What an amazing giveaway. I have borrowed Granny Chic from the library and have been swooning over it. I love it and I really don't want to return it. I am hoping the library forget I have it. I would love the chance to win it along with vintage fabric and ornament (more swooning). :)

  35. Dear Heather,
    Oh I have been wanting to try patchwork for an age, but do not have the pennies to experiment. Your fabrics are so pretty and the book is on my secret wishlist. If I was lucky enough to win I would wish for the pale mauvey/bluey one second from the front. And then I would dig out the scary sewing machine from the back of the cupboard!
    I know what you mean about tough times, the last 2 years have been rubbish for me :sigh:

    PS, your little red suitcase reminds me of the baby blue one I had many many years ago, ie the 70s lol.
