Hello! I've been wanting to do a giveaway post for a while, but couldn't figure out exactly what to give away...after much thought I decided I'd give away something that I'd enjoy winning - and I hope you agree! So to celebrate almost reaching fifty followers, I'm giving away this pair of crocheted button-flower hair slides!

They're crocheted in fine cotton purchased from a charity shop, with buttons from a local haberdashery and comfy hair slides. The flowers measure 3cm across and the hair slides 6.5cm.

To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is:
- become a follower
- visit my shop (here!) and leave me a comment on this post letting me know which item is your favourite
- also in your comment, describe what kind of blog articles you like to read most - tutorials, reviews, recipes, general discussions, Folksy and Etsy favourites?
- don't forget to include a way of getting hold of you if you win!
- leave your comments before midnight (GMT) on 14th March

The winner will be chosen in three weeks on March 15th using!

Good luck!

I said in my last post that I'd been crocheting lots and here is the fruit of my labour so far! It's crocheted in a treble stitch with a raised treble to make the ribs - the front is really easy and a quick row to complete, but the back is a bit fiddly as you have to turn the work to raise the stitch from behind (if that makes sense!), so it's taking some time but it's the perfect craft for doing in front of the television, and it's really transportable, unlike card-making!

Look at my cute stitch marker! It came with the original wool I bought, and I only just figured out what it was...clever! I think it goes perfectly with this project!

Good luck with the giveaway!

Hi Sarah
Great blog and what lovely work you do!
I love the little lime green thrifted button crocheted flower brooch :)

I'm a big fan of tutorials. I tried crocheting before and was pretty bad at it so the more basic tutorials the better!

Love the giveaway - have something similar on my own blog so be sure to become a follower xx
