Stitchy Giveaway

To celebrate my return to sewing I thought I'd have a giveaway on the blog as it's something I've not done for some time.  I'm also amazed to learn that I'm nearing 100,000 hits - amazed because I started out as a sewing blog and veered off in other directions over the past couple of years or so. 

So, I have this 'fox in a scarf' pincushion and a Great British Sewing Bee Sewing Apron for the lucky winner.  The fox is ironic in that one of my most popular posts is of me in a fox scarf, albeit a knitted one.  The apron is quite snazzy - it's in a half apron style with pockets in the front to store scissors etc while you're sewing.  I think the GBSB series has actually inspired me to start sewing again.

So if you'd like to be in with a chance of winning, just tell me what's the longest time you've ever gone without sewing?  Please leave me a comment and I'll pick an answer at random in about a fortnight.  I'll also need a contact email.  Good luck!  


  1. Since the sewweekly days I have sometimes gone weeks without sewing. But that's all. Before that I went maybe 18 years. I made a dress when I was 16 or so on my mother's machine. Then I didnt have a machine at all until I was in my 30!

  2. Ps if I am lucky enough to win youcansend me a facebook message;) fingers crossed xx

  3. It's yours Charlotte! Glad because we've stayed in touch ever since those first Sew Weekly days ... Enjoy!
