Valentine competition ...


Miss Valentine is my latest bunny and she's looking for someone to love and take care of her.

If you think you would like to have her come live with you, there are no hoops to jump through to be added into the draw for her. Just add a comment saying you would like to enter my 'Valentine Draw' for her and a winner will be drawn on Valentines Day. 

Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you should you be the winner if your settings are set to a no reply blogger when you comment.

Santas Village had 2 evenings worth of stitching instead of just one. Poor santa, he'll have to remain headless till next Wednesday and I've decided that i'm going to change the colour of the chimney smoke from the charted white to more of a pale grey. I have an open fire and the smoke from my chimney is definitely not white!


Friday was the stocking-a-long of Nativity Stocking and I now have two and bit wise men. It's a nice project to stitch. I did have some problem with the fabric that came with the kit, there was the biggest fault right in the middle of it.  Thank goodness for technology,  I emailed a picture of the fault to the supplier and they arranged for an alternative piece to be sent out direct to me.  The fabric in the kit was a 14ct aida but i decided in the end to change it and went with a 28ct murano, its quite a stiff fabric and will be better for the stocking I think. The colour on this picture is as usual nothing like what it is in real life.


I've also been stitching on a secret project, all will be revealed with that next weekend after the birthday girl receives what i've made for her. I'm sure some of you will know where the parcel is heading. This lady is a very good friend of mine who will be celebrating a milestone birthday but I wont be telling you which milestone birthday it will be lol.

I hope all is well in your world and life is being kind to you.

Happy stitching, knitting and crafting.... and good luck to all who enter for the competition for Miss Valentine.

I have one of your bunnies but oh this one is so pretty! I am torn between being fair and just yelling out me! me! me! rofl. Santas village is looking great, as are the three wise men. I am a bit worried about who's birthday it is cus it means if it is someone I know then I have forgotten! Argh!!

gracie said...

I have the perfect spot for Bunny...please enter my name in the draw. I often have thought about cross stitching a stocking...then it does not happen! Looking forward to seeing yours finished.

The valentine bunny is adorable and would make a great companion to my boy bunny with the red vest, but I won't enter since I have him, I'll give someone else the chance to give her a home and enjoy her

Maggie said...

I've always thought your knitted bunnies so cute and i would love for you to enter my name in the draw for this little cutie!

I agree with your choice of grey for the smoke on santa's chimney, i think it would work better than white. Your stocking stitching is coming on really fast too :-)

Have a good week x

I know Mrs Ticklestick lives here but I'm sure Miss Valentine would be fantastic company for her - however if she is chosen elsewhere I do hope she keeps in touch via Needlecraft Haven.

missy said...

Ohhh this is really sweet of you and so selfish of me to enter your 'Valentine Draw' as I already have one of your sweet bunnies but he has been a very lonely boy in my craft room and could use a sweetheart for Valentines day.

Carol said...

Oh, if I didn't already own one of your adorable bunnies, I would jump at the chance to own Miss Valentine, Julie! You'll make one of your readers very happy :)

Glad you were able to get a replacement for the flawed fabric! Your WIPs are both so cute--good call on changing the smoke color, too...

Happy Valentine's Day!!

valerie said...

Oh what a cute bunny! I would love a chance at the Valentine draw. Great progress on Santa's Village and your stocking!

Linda said...

You're bunny is so cute - would love a chance of owning her. Well done on all your stitching this week - glad you were able to get the fabric replaced for the stocking without any problems.

Christine said...

Bwa ha ha ha! I LOVE the headless Santa. If that were my stitching I'm not sure I'd be able to resist the temptation to stitch the head on the snow next to him. I know, I'm sick ;D
The valentine's bunny is adorable, but I'll keep my name out of the hat as I already have Miss Blossom here and I suspect she is the jealous type!

Please may I join in.........?
Christmas stitching.....we haven't had Easter yet!
Julie xxxxxxx

Brigitte said...

Hello Miss Julie, Oh she is a smasher isnt she. If Seymore wasnt so in love with Rose I think he may be giving her the glad eye. The girls love her red dress and think she could be a the start of a new fashion statement.So I will pass on Valentine (which would have been my name if I had been born a day earlier.)Hope she gets a really good home.Good luck to all who enter.
Take care sweetie
