A giveaway

Hi lovely ladies, i am having a giveaway, i was making some aprons for the grandchildren and i had some material left over so i thought it would be nice to make some more and just simply give them away, the first one is a apron for a boy or a girl for gardening, painting or baking, it will probably fit 4 - 6 years, second giveaway is a little girls apron,which crosses over at the back and has little ladybird buttons at the front to do up, to fit 1 - 2 years, thirdly a little girls apron to fit 2.- 3 Now both of theses come with a bonus sunhat i say bonus because although they should fit, there is no guarantee most of you have children or grandchildren or nieces or nephews and i thought with it being it being Easter soon, something for the little ones would be nice, i also have to giveaway six vintage buttons with rather grand ladies on them there is also a whole unopened roll of cream trim, there is 20 metres of it if anybody would like to enter my giveaway all you have to is leave a message for which one you would like, it is open to anyone near or far blogger or none blogger and could you if you don't mind leave a note about the giveaway on your blog, to tell more people about it, this is purely optional, i will put the names in a basket and reveal the winners on Sunday the 5Th April. Right with that done we went to the car boot this morning and i bought this lovely little bench to display my rag dolls and inside there is a storage compartment i am so pleased i am going to do it up and i will show the results with my new doll sitting on it hopefully, i also got this darning mushroom, i will be covering it in material as i saw one done on another blog and it looked darling, i bought other bits and bobs but i wont bore you about them, my D.H has been a star all weekend taking over the household duties so that i do not strain my hands and i have been able to do a lot of sewing, here is a picture of my scissors, they are really good as you don't need to put much effort into cutting as they are spring loaded my daughter bought them for me from Dunelm they are about £15 they cut through quite a few layers so anybody with aching hands give them a try, they re easy to get used to and i wouldn't go back to the old method well i hear my sewing machine calling so have a good week ladies, best wishes pat x x

Off to squash the children so they can fit into your aprons. Beautiful - wish this had happened 2 years ago!
The spring loaded scissors look bit menacing though...

Please enter me in your give away! I love your buttons, but to have a hand-made item is always the best!

If you think the shipping would be too much then take me out of the drawing; I just like to visit your blog and see what you are up to! That is winning enough don't you think?

This is my first visit to your blog! I do enjoy looking around here..and I`ll be back!

Hi Pat!

Well, I looked very closely at the sizes for the aprons and much to my sadness they wouldn't fit my kids...So instead of a hand made lovely, I would ask to be put down for your nice buttons.

Thank you!
