Give-away !

I've been thinking about doing one of these for a little while, but then I felt a bit shy...and then I couldn't think what you might want to receive.

However- I've put together these little gifts for your enjoyment ,one for the compulsive crochet disorder sufferers (we have a lovely support group over on flickr), and one for those who just like pretty things.

For crochet addicts- a little case for your hooks, and a copy of the shrug pattern that I enjoyed so much.

For lovers of pretty things-a notebook adorned with Spanish ladies in their corsets from an old advertisement and this little tray which I think is adorable. I wish I'd got one for myself it would be so handy to keep my glasses and my scissors on when I'm making things. It could be handy on the dressing table too.

It's easy to enter, just leave me a comment and sign up as a follower. Don't forget to tell me which you would like to win. I'm very happy to post to anywhere so don't be shy if you live in Australia or somewhere even further away ( is there such a place ?) I have chosen things that are as light as can be !

I'll leave you with these beautiful passion flowers from my frind Ursula's garden, she gave me four, one for each of us. They are so beautiful but sadly only last one day...

I will pick a winner on the 5th July( My Mum's birthday).

Have a lovely weekend

  1. hello Louise, Of course I would love to win the set for us in the CCD-group :-)
    I am already a follower as you know.

    By the way I love the flower in your picture.


  2. Don't be shy Louise, I'm not! I'd unashamedly love to enter your giveaway please!!! :-)

    Whilst I'd love the little crochet needle case, I think the shrug may be beyond me so I should like to be considered for the 'pretty things' draw - the tray is just gorgeous.

    Pretty passion flower; so sad it only lasts a day though. Isn't that peculiar?

    Hope you're ok.


  3. Hi Louise! I just found you yesterday, and added you to my blogger reader. I am afraid I live quite far away, but not on the other side of the US. I'd love to make the shrug for my daughters, so I'm going for that side.
    Lovely things you and your ccds group make, it makes me positively gungho to start crocheting again!

  4. This will be fun for you to do. I had a blast with my last few. You know I would love to play. That flower is stunning. That's it enough playing for me, I need to get serious about taking some more pictures of flowers.


  5. How could I possibly choose, if I am lucky I will be glad of either. Think I already am a follower, but I will check. I want as many chances as I can :-)

  6. Greetings from USA! I love your blog.
    Please visit me at:

  7. Ooh Louise, what a lovely giveaway! Choices too....hard choices. If I won I'd like the eh......notebook and tray please!
    The flowers are beautiful!

  8. Hi Great giveaway, I would like to enter for the crochet hook roll please !
    Thanks for your message about the hooks, I will dig them out and get back to you hopefully in the next couple of days. selling (hopefully!) at school fair this afternoon so a bit manic here !
    Thanks Sue

  9. I love your blog and love the beautiful things you have made. I would love to win your giveaway. Thanks Emily

  10. Hi, Louise! While I don't crochet (my fingers turn around and look at me and ask 'WHAT do you think you're trying to DO?') I love the tray! I think I'm a follower...we do communicate! Thanks for taking the give-away plunge.

  11. Hello Louise....I thought I had already started to follow you, but just found out I hadn't. Silly me! Too much hooking and flickr-ing makes the old brain lame! It must be the CCD!!!
    If I win I would like the little tray, and I would like you to keep it for yourself!! I always buy things and wish I had one.....
    the flowers are beautiful but fleeting, it's a shame isn't it?
    Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing who won what!! :)

  12. Though I visit often I am now an official follower. I am going to Learn -to-Crochet lessons this week so your lovely pattern would be a lovely prize for me to start on ( hope it is not too difficult!)
    Keep up the interesting posts

  13. I was shy when I did my first giveaway at Easter but I really enjoyed it!
    Have a lovely giveaway!
    Warm Wishes,

    The passion flower is beautiful, what a shame it only lasts one day.
    Best wishes,
