Brrrr. IT'S FREEZING!! Because the weather's so cold, I thought I'd hold a winter warmer giveaway to warm at least one of you up. I'm giving away the rest of the turquoise sweater knit fabric that I used for my raglan sleeved dress.
There's about 1.8 metres in total, but one end does have a chunk cut out of it so I'd say there's about 1.5 metres of usable fabric. That's still a decent amount to play with as it's wide (60 inches). You could make a cosy knit dress, or a Renfrew or a nice woolly skirt, and most importantly you'd be warm!
This is not a simple 'leave a comment' giveaway though. Oh no. This time, just for fun, I'm going to turn into Ealing's answer to Rumpelstiltskin and ask if you can guess the name of my dummy.
Who else loved Ladybird books when they were little?
I deliberately didn't give my dummy a name when I bought it as it didn't really look like anything in particular, it was just a dummy (it's a standard Lady Valet by the way). Over the years however, one particular name kept popping into my head whenever I used her/it and wouldn't really go away. There's absolutely no story behind the name, it just appeared one day and seemed to suit her. But the big question is, what name is it? To narrow it down a bit (otherwise we could be here for years) I'll give you one clue: the name begins with the letter A. There, aren't I lovely?!
In fact I'm so lovely, I've decided to throw in a second prize, which is a delightful 50's-style half apron made by my own fair hands. It has an awesome dancing print on the front and contrast blue polka dots on the reverse. Perfect to wear when you're cooking all that warming winter soup. Mmmmm soup.
Before you ask, no, that's not a pigs trotter holding the fabric. It is in fact my porky little hand!
Don't worry if the name you had in mind has already been suggested by somebody else. If there are more than two correct answers then I'll randomly choose the winners. If nobody manages to guess the name, then I'll still put all the comments into a hat as usual. There will still be two winners whether the name is guessed correctly or not. The giveaway is open worldwide and closes at midnight GMT on Saturday 19th January 2013. Please make sure you leave your email address if it's not linked to your blogger profile so I can contact you if you're the winner. Good luck everybody - I'm intrigued to see if anybody manages to guess correctly! x
