Sweet Hearts Giveaway!

Welcome to my blog today - and to my first giveaway!! I wanted to thank  all my sweet readers for taking time to visit my little bit of blogland, to read, to comment, to share and be a part of it...... so here is a chance to win a little gift - in fact a chance for two winners to win a heart each!
Both the hearts are hand made by me, with applique patches, a little cross stitch embroidery, and of course a few buttons....They can be hung almost anywhere you like.....
 ...or used as a pincushion - pretty to have around and small enough to tuck into your work basket....
 ....and on the back of each heart I've stitched my initials with one strand of cotton over one thread of linen - and added another button apiece too...
If you would like to be put in the draw to win one of these sweet hearts, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post!! So easy! The giveaway will be open until next Sunday, and I will announce the two winners on Monday February 14 - Valentine's Day!!
I'll be back here before then, of course...I hope you are having a lovely weekend - it's rather windy here but the sun is just peeking out and we're off for a walk soon. Enjoy your day! And good luck in the sweet heart giveaway!! xx

Hi Helen,

The hearts really are sweet! No walking for me today. Lots of snow fell overnight, so we have to shovel a path first LOL! Have a lovely weekend!

marigold jam said...

How pretty those little hearts are and how "you" in their colouring. Love them and would dearly like to be included in the draw for one of them. Hope the walk was good - bit dull here today but at least it is dry so I could have had a walk but I didn't in fact I had an after lunch nap instead!

Hi Helen
As I have come to expect in the short time since finding your lovely blog, there is always something bright and beautiful here! The hearts are so pretty, and the embroidered intials so tiny and neat - wish I had the patience to produce such exquisiteness!

Hope you are enjoying this glorious spring weather if in your part of the country!
