New pattern launch and a giveaway!

Thank you SO much for your very kind words about my free Christmas design (as blogged about yesterday!) I am so glad you like it. :-) I received lots of comments from lovely ladies wanting to make them for their grandchildren to hang on the tree this year… and that really touched my heart! When my sweet little daughter hangs our ornament on the tree, I will think of you! :-)

I’d love to see your finished creations so please drop me an email with a pic! Or better still, you can upload photos to the Among the Gum Trees flickr group. :-)

It’s Giveaway Time!

To celebrate the launch of my two new designs, I am having a giveaway! {{{How exciting!}}}

So without further ado, let me introduce you to my festive notebook entitled “Seasonal Notes”

Seasonal Notes cover with copyright

Do you like it? I think the Red Robin is singing a very pretty song to the happy snowman. Just check out that smile!!

“Seasonal Notes” is a felt and fabric covered notebook with detachable rings – so you can write your Christmas shopping lists… or make notes for your letter to Santa… and still use it next year when all the pages run out – because they can be replaced. :-) It has a double use too – because when you’re not writing in its pages, you can sit it on a table or shelf and admire it as an ornament.

My second design has a serene beauty about it… I was doodling one day and from the end of my pencil came this beautiful young mother nursing her baby… and the scene unfolded around them. This stitchery design is called “A Mothers Love”

A mothers love cropped

I think it would be nice stitched into a cushion or pillow – perhaps a wall-hanging - or even a journal cover for an expectant mum-to-be.

I have decided to give away both patterns for these designs to three lucky readers. All you need to do is leave a comment on THIS blog post. If you do not have a blog, no worries, just make sure you leave your email address in the comment so that I can contact you.

The giveaway closes on Saturday 21st November, 10am Melbourne Time.

Warm wishes – and Good Luck! Vikki x

Hi Vikki

These are just beautiful... the snowman is very charming and the stitchery is very heart warming... my husband and I were just reflecting the other day about how much fun our daughters were when they were little - not that they're horrible now or anything... it's just different...

Cheers! Shari
