Pin Win

I’ve entered a number of giveaways over the last few months and I’ve finally won a handmade item – Grand Fleur Pin from Left Bank Shop!

This brooch is made from many layers of heavyweight art paper petals assembled by hand into a flower form. The flowers have also been sealed to protect them from the elements. It’s just gorgeous.

Coincidentally, the brooch is exactly the colours of my first hand dyed yarn. I’m thinking of creating something pretty with the yarn and pin the brooch on it. 🙂

Amy, who owns the Left Bank Shop, also has another shop – ShopAmyGurumi I bought silicone thimbles from her and they have saved my finger tips from my sharp embroidery needle! They’re soft and flexible and feels like second skin. Can’t recommend them enough!

I’ve hinted several FOs in this post which I’m very excited to talk about in future blog posts. Stay tuned by getting updates via email or RSS. See you soon!

    Congratulations! I’ve only ever won one internet competition. It was a huge Christmas giveaway on a really popular blog and I won one of the weekly prizes, but after six months of waiting for it to arrive, I emailed the blogger who told me the prize maker had gone out of business, so I wasn’t getting anything.

    I was sooooo disappointed, especially since I wouldn’t even be getting a substitute prize (and of course she didn’t mention anything on her blog about me not getting my prize, so everyone thinks I got it). Bleh. Sorry, that was a bit of a rant!!

      What! That’s outrageous! The least they could do was to email you and let you know. Is this popular blog still around?
