A hearty giveaway




So have you started making any Christmas decorations? If not, don't fear, I can help. I think it's about time for a little giveaway, to get into the Christmas spirit and to thank you for coming round here and liking me on Facebook. I'm giving away a Felt Heart Kit, which makes 6 heart decorations. You don't need fancy stitching skills to make them; good old running stitch works just as well as blanket stitch.

Anyone can enter, just tell me which was your favourite book this year, ficion or non. Remember to make sure I can contact you. And to say thank you for your support, blog followers and FB likers can get 2 entries each, just mention it in your comment. I'll announce the winner next Friday night, NZ time. Good luck!

Tough choice, but probably Handmade home by Amanda Soule, I've made many projects from the book and still have more to make. I'm a FB liker too!

My favourite book this year has to be Hairy Maclary and Zachary Quack!!! Yes, I have a toddler and no I don't have much time for reading, but I hope to change that soon.

Ohhh so hard to choose, but I have returned to 'The Art of Encaustic Painting' by Joanne Mattera a few times this year. I like how there is a mix of history, technique and contemporary artworks in the book. Joanne also has a great blog that I follow! I want to learn more about working with wax but fear it is not the medium for me...my messiness means my work space (the kitchen table)evolves into something resembling a crime scene. It is just not fun cleaning up wax drips! Check me out on Facebook, Lynn Taylor Artist.

I would like to say my favorite book I've read this year was something highbrow like Pride and Prejudice but really it was the historical bodice ripper with time travel "Cross Stitch" and Scandinavian Needlework. it has me churning out little nordic felt Christmas decorations and thinking that some of those stunning hearts would just add to the mix. Oh, and I am following on blogger

I loved The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas... what terrific characterisation. A very recognisable modern Australia. Jackie Kay's adoption memoir Red Dust Road is wonderful too.
