I can't believe that I have been doing this now for one whole year! This time last year was one of the hardest weeks emotionally that my little family and I have ever faced. So what did I do ... take on another project! Thinking back I must have been delirious!
I never could have realised how much this little space would enrich my world. I've made some good friends who have opened doors for me I never believed possible. I've gotten to know some amazing women from all around the world and it's been so nice to share little bits of our lives and our passions. You guys are pretty cool!
This little corner of the web has driven me creatively ...
So what was I working on last week ....
It's a Puppet Theatre. I first made one of these for Megan for her 5th birthday and the kids have all had so much fun with it over the years. It hangs above a door jam on a couple of hooks. The kids hide away behind the theatre using the stage to present their latest hilariously, ridiculous production. Once you remove the dowels it packs away to nothing.
I have driven myself loopy over this for quite some time now ... I have finally decided to take the dive into the retail world. Today I am officially launching Don't look Now! patterns ...
well actually it is only one pattern but providing I sell more than one ... there will be more :).
Of course with every new pattern and blogaversary there must be a giveaway!!! I didn't intend to have three giveaways in a row so I hope that you aren't 'giveawayed out' (OK ... I know that's not a word).
If you leave a comment here between now and mid night Australian EST on the 17th of January you will have the opportunity to win either one of two patterns or a Puppet Theatre. Anyone who has left a comment here on my last 10 posts will get an extra entry.
For the time being I intend to only sell my patterns from an online shop. They wont be available until the 18th ... no point buying one until you know for sure you haven't one one! :) This will be all up and running on the 18th of January after the winners are announced.
Thanks for your support over the last 12 months! I hope you keep coming back ... you guys literally have made my year!!!
And just so you know I haven't been sitting around doing nothing all week...
Have a great weekend!
PS. The latest copy of Homespun found it's way onto the newspaper stands this week! Our Miss Megan took the prize of runner up in her age group of the Homespun Young Designer of the Year Award. She won a magnificent Brenina sewing machine plus over $3000 worth of other amazing prizes! This really is a spectacular competition for young Australians and incredibly well sponsored!!! Thanks Homespun from a very overwhelmed little, big girl :) ...
This is where her design began.
Congratulations my girl!
