I'm back with the prizes finished and ready for my first blogiversary giveaway :-) So without further ado, tada!!
I was playing around with a new idea for mushrooms at the weekend and loved how flat embroidered ones work for hanging decorations so I'll be making more of these to put in my shop. I am giving the first two I made in my giveaway along with an adorable amigurumi owl and a pretty pink heart keyring too. Here's the mushrooms front and back close up,
While making these I had the idea of making a string of them as bunting and adding the letters of 'HIPPYWITCH' on the roofs instead of spots to put along the front of my stall at fayres :-) I'm halfway through the embroidery on them and them just need to put the fronts and backs together and it's done, look pretty good and I'm loving making more mushrooms!
I seem to have a 'thing' for mushroom cottages and I think (in my best psychologist mode) I know why. When I was little I had a plastic Smurf House that was a mushroom cottage and I adored it!! Then when I was 11 my little sister was born and a couple of years later my Mam gave her the Smurf House as I was 'too grown up for it'. Little sis trashed it and covered it in felt tip pen.........I've just about forgiven her now twenty seven years later, lol!
So to enter the giveaway my usual rules apply, be a follower and leave a comment on this post, I hate rules so that's it :-) The winner will be drawn by the boyfriend out of a hat (or bowl actually) on Sunday the 4th March, good luck everyone!
