November Giveaway



Exploding Sewing Box My Creative Spirit Graphic 45
omg...... in all the excitement of Harry coming home at the weekend I completely forgot to schedule the November Giveaway post to go live on Friday, so huge apologies if you called by.  Harry has gawn home (had to laugh when he said that) and we're all back to what seems to be normal until next month.  I can't believe how much he'd changed and grown too.  Both bambinos tower over me these days; Fireworks were exploding all around on Saturday - it was a freezing eve but no rain.  Hope you had a great time if you went off to an event or held one yourself. 
I've had a real crafty day prepping one of the projects for my retreat next weekend.  Let the countdown begin.  

11 sleeps to go ladies ................. 

until 30 of us meet up at the Holiday Inn Kenilworth for a right old crafty escape.  I'll be sharing one of our Friday projects over the next couple of days...... it just needs a couple of tweeks. 
So on to our giveaway for November.  The Exploding Sewing Box kits are on their way so I thought we'd give away one of those.  They come with full assembly instructions too.  The samples have been altered in papers from the Cafe Parisian collection by Graphic 45. (Can you tell I love stripes lol!) If I'm not wearing them I'm crafting with them. 
The kit is also available from our website - click here to view 
If you're new to my blog and would like to take part, just leave a comment below before midnight on 30th November GMT.  Our winner is announced here on the blog on 1st of the month. 
Good luck if you enter. 
I've just looked at the clock and can't believe it's gone 7pm.  It's back to the craft room for me - I'm on a mission to finish off some instructions before I call it a day.  Enjoy your eve/day what ever you're up to and look forward to catching up again shortly.

  31. Hello Claire,

    I have seen you on Hochanda and was impressed with all the items you brought to air. This sewing box is outstanding. I once knew someone who stitched and made a similar box. But I think your box beaats the stitched one as you get a much neater finish. The use of black tape to finish the edges is inspired. The items you make look sturdy too. Thanks.

  45. What a terrific box! This would be the ultimate gift for the experienced sewer(such as myself), or a beginner (a daughter or a daughter in law, granddaughter) to start their own journey. But don't forget the bachelors out there, you can add needles, thread, buttons and anything else as for an emergency kit, only make the box masculine. Love it! Lori in Pennsylvania, USA

  55. Hello I'm newly signed up to your newsletter and subscribed to your YouTube :) My mom loves crafting and I never know what to gift her for Christmas but this would be really unique! I'm entering because I'm still in high school and I find it hard toget my parents gifts as I would be using their money, which is really defeating the point ❤️️❤️

  57. It's really pretty; I like Graphic 45. Right now I do cross stitch only, but I would love to also learn to do embroidery (I have a couple of Anna Griffin's kits, but have never learned how to do them.). Btw ... I'm from the U.S., if that matters in your giveaways.
