Amazingly, we have been blogging for a whole year now. A little over a year since the conversation whilst driving back from a Devon beach in which we decided that it might be fun to have a try at creating a blog together. Neither of us realised just how much blogging would enrich our lives and how many lovely people we would meet along the way. What began as a dialogue between two friends about their crafting endeavours has expanded to include comments and inspiration from crafters all over the world. We really would like to say a huge thank you to all our readers over the past year. Every one is truly appreciated.
Not only is it our blogging birthday, but this week we reached the dizzy heights of 100 followers. 101, in fact. Two friends, two crafts, two cities and now two fantastic reasons for a giveaway. It goes without saying that we have for you two prizes, one from each friend and one for each craft.
A copy of The Knitted Home. Recommended in the latest issue of Mollie Makes, this book is filled with lovely things to make for your home (including several crochet projects). Personally, I'm very taken with the tea cosy and matching mug cosy! Also included in the prize is a pretty skein of organic wool and some matching vintage needles and buttons.
A copy of Scandinavian Needle Craft, I love the idea of embellishing sewing projects with embroidery and this book looked perfect for that. I have included a fairly random selection of material from my stash and some vintage buttons. All the material is cotton except for the pink spots which is oil cloth.
If you'd like to enter, just leave a comment on this post telling us which prize you'd like to win and letting us know either:
1. Which has been your favourite Nimble Fingers and Steady Eyebrows post so far?
2. What would you like to see more of on the blog next year?
If you feel like sharing the love by mentioning the giveaway on Twitter, or adding the button in the sidebar to your blog then we'd be most grateful! If you do, pop back and let us know and we'll give you an extra entry.
You don't have to be a follower to enter, but if you'd like to become one then we'd love to have you.
We'll keep the giveaway open for two weeks and draw a winner on Saturday 5th November. Good luck!
Annie and Laura
