It’s time to announce the winner of the Craft Hope: Handmade Crafts for a Cause book! Firstly, thank you for all the wonderful comments left on this post. I encourage you to read each one if you haven’t already. There are some fantastic ideas in there about how we can craft for a cause that is close to our heart. A single person CAN make a difference in someone else’s life – sounds cliché but it’s true! Some of the stories are also very touching – thank you for sharing them with us!
Congratulations Thouraya!! I will be in contact with you soon! Thank you to all who left comments – I hope you’ll consider buying a copy of the book from your favourite book seller. As mentioned previously, $1 from every book sold will go to Global Impact.
I managed to squeeze in some sewing time over the weekend and this little fella is almost done – just a few minor tweaks and hand-sewn details needed:
Here he is taking advantage of the lovely breaks of sunshine that Melbourne had over the weekend:
Hopefully you’ll be able to make him yourself early next year when the pattern is published:-)
I started a new job last week, after just over 12 years spent at my previous job! I’m really enjoying it – the people are fantastic and the new office is an enjoyable place to work in (fancy-schmancy coffee machine and cafe-style office kitchen for the win!). The only real change in my routine are longer office hours – I’m learning to juggle things better and obviously time with my girls takes precedence when I get home, so blog posts may be a little sparse for a while and it may take me longer than usual to reply to emails or respond to comments :-)
I’ve got another giveaway lined up for all you wonderful readers next week, sponsored by Mooo! More details soon!
