Spring Giveaway!

 The sun is shining, lots of spring flowers are blooming and once again it is time for my springtime giveaway....each year i put together a few little gifts at this time of year to say a special thank you to all my lovely readers............
 .............there are four parts to the giveaway this time.......the first is a tiny sugar bunny handmade by me, with a pretty little skirt and a tiny cardigan made from lace weight angora yarn.......below are some of the ingredients for making this sugar bunny :) .......she was made from the pattern in my book pretty patchwork gifts and is half the size of the bunnies i usually make.....perfect to hang on the easter tree............
 ..............the second part of the giveaway was bought at hill top, beatrix potter's house in the lake district seen in the pictures below that i took on our recent trip there.............
 .............the gift shop at hill top was selling peter rabbit mugs personalised for hill top.....i just had to have one and i thought you might like one too..........2016 is 150 years since beatrix potter was born so there are lots of celebrations going on.......you can find out more about her wonderful lake district conservation work and her lasting legacy of paintings and children's books here.....
 .............the pictures below are of hill top when we visited there in summer 2012......there were roses and rabbits and a beautiful abundant garden to enjoy.........
 ..............the mugs are a lovely idea because you can buy them to personalise with children's names...

 .............the third and fourth parts of the giveaway are crafty ones....we always like to include something you can craft with and today there are some fabric covered buttons in spring green shades and some wonderful variegated dmc perle cotton which you can use for embroidery or to quilt with...you can also use it to tie tags onto gifts as it is nice and strong and looks pretty..........
 ...........the giveaway is open until sunday 20 march....just a short one this time so i can send your gifts before easter........it is open to everyone anywhere in the world.............
 ...............all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post.....and if you are a follower of this blog, or a follower on facebook, you are welcome to have a second chance by leaving me a second comment to tell me so :)............
 ...........this week i am doing patchwork, sewing, drawing and crochet.....also sowing seeds ready to grow in the greenhouse (so excited about this!) and making a couple more tiny sugar bunnies for our easter tree..............
 ..........today is the mildest, sunniest most spring like day we have had so far this year and the blossom is just beginning to open......such a gorgeous time of year.......
...........thank you for all your visits and kind comments dear readers......i will leave you with a picture of this sweet little wild primrose and with lots of good wishes for a happy week......good luck in the giveaway everyone :) ................back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

How delightful! your giveaway is really pretty. the little sugar bunny is so tiny and delicate and the mug - well, I am a huge Beatrix Potter fan and would love to drink tea from this pretty mug. The buttons and thread are so pretty, just the inspiration for a bit of Spring sewing. I would like to win, of course, but am trying to restrain myself from shouting 'me, me, choose me'! so good luck to everyone else too as I am sure there will be a lot of entries just as keen as me!

Hello Helen, what a fantastic giveaway. I love your little bunny she is adorable. I love Hilltop Farm, I took my daughter there a couple of years ago, but the house was unfortunately shut. We did get a look around the lovely garden and shop. We will have to go again. I think its really magical and so easy to imagine all the characters from her books hopping or waddling about.

Happy Easter to you, Helen. I love it when your posts arrive in my email box. What a wonderful spring giveaway. I love everything Beatrix Potter.

Frances said...

Helen, this spring giveaway that you are offering us is so lovely! Many thanks for your generosity.

Perhaps I have mentioned to you before now that back in the last century, for a number of years I was a fully paid up member of the Beatrix Potter Society, having found out about the organization while visiting a BP exhibit at the Tate. I regret that my UK traveling schedule never allowed me to be in London for any of their meetings. I think that these meeting were held at the Explorer's Club on Exhibition Road.

Everything that you've shown us in this post sings a very sweet spring song.

Dear Helen.. what a wonderful giveaway! I got the whole set of Peter Rabbit books to read to my grandchildren. And I watched the movie about Beatrix Potter.. so that mug would be such a special thing to win since I may never get to see the Lake District and her wonderful home and farm. And to have a Sugar Bunny on my Easter tree - dreamy! Count me in, my friend. You are so kind and generous. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Bee Lady said...

Hi Helen,

What a nice idea to have a give away this time of year. Spring is my favorite time of year, and Easter is the Holiday I have for our family. (well Easter, and July 4!and Christmas Eve!) Anyway, I love Beatrix Potter so much and I would love to visit there some day. You are very fortunate to have seen her farm. Even though nothing at our place looks like her farm, (I have a book) we named our place Hilltop Farm. And the boys I used to watch who are now 16 & 19...I bet they can still sing, "Tom, Tom, The Piper's son!" That does it, I am getting out the old tv with the vcr player and I'm setting it up in a room so I can play those video tapes for Easter Sunday! I love all of your creations and yes I am a follower.

Sending a big hug and good luck wishes to all!

Helen, what a lovely giveaway for Easter! I love the flowery ears on the little sugar bunny. I've only made one bunny from your book so far, but the next one will have those darling ears! I have a little soap dish with Peter Rabbit on it and it has been so adorable by the bathroom sink for years. I love to sew, esp. Patchwork and am currently learning how to knit!

Your words are such an inspiration, you breathe the essence of Spring into me and many others, reminding us of so many facets of colour, texture and all the things of Easter memories, though I may have made a mistake... in sowing my seeds already. June Howard

Karen said...

I don't know if this giveaway is open to your U.S. followers but it doesn't hurt to try. I love your style and all that you do. I too like to do all the different types of needlework, crochet, knitting,cross stitch and quilting, even needle punch and rug hooking, but I love to garden. After visiting France one year and then England two years later I saw both cultures and the landscape. The land and my environment is very important to me and I love being and living in the country. Now many women love France and french style. But I liked visiting England more. I liked the countryside what little I saw of it and would love to go back to visit!

Thank you Mrs. Helen!! I love all the little bunnies and buttons and floss. Everything you touch is so beautiful! I absolutely look forward to reading your posts. I have your books and my next project is the scottie dog mini quilt.

How timely! I just watched "Miss Potter" starring Renee Zeleweger. I have a sterling silver spoon with Peter Rabbit on the top the handle...I think it must have been made for that mug! The sugar bunny, crafty things, and your blog are all lovely. I don't miss a post!

Just hopping in to say, "Hi," and thank you for another beautiful post, Helen. Thanks for your generous giveaway. It will be fun to see who wins your lovely gifts :) I just posted about the four happy days I had at the beach crafting with some friends. I'm so glad you got to enjoy time near Beatrix Potter's home...she left us such wonderful artwork to enjoy, didn't she xxxxxxx

What a lovely giveaway. I love your sugar bunny, so adorable and I love the Peter Rabbit mug. This year I started collecting Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit figurines for my 3 1/2 year old Granddaughter. So far I have Peter, Mrs. Twiggy-Winkle and Old Woman in the Shoe. I love your blog Helen and I look forward every week to see what you are sewing or crafting.

What a sweet little giveaway -- everything is just beautiful. And 150 years! It hardly seems possible. I've been saving some Peter Rabbit baby sets (that I bought when we lived in Germany 35 years ago) for someday grandchildren. This is the year -- it will be so fun to give a set to the new babe in the 150th year!

Thimbleanna said...

And, of course, I'm a follower -- I LOVE your blog!

Hi Helen what a lovely give away.
These would make lovely presents for anyone.
Now I'm retired I will have time to make all these lovely things from your book.

Rhona said...

What a wonderful spring time feeling to your post. I still have the Peter Rabbit dishes that my children received as babies (quite a few years ago ;) )
the cup and saucer didn't make it through the move to the US, so a mug would be a fantastic addition....thanks for the chance to win a little bit of the UK.
