A Christmas Giveaway

I have mentioned before that I have some friends who are really talented and creative when it comes to sewing, quilting, craftwork, crochet, knitting and so on. One of those lovely friends has asked me if I would like to have a little giveaway on my blog and she has made a couple of beautifully made potholders which would be so very useful in the kitchen or to give away for Christmas.

 

 The potholders are 100% cotton front and back with one layer of Insulbrite plus one layer of wadding and measure about 19cm (7.5 inches ) square.




Aren't they a beautiful colour? 


 You would have already seen some of Judy's work as she gave me a couple of crocheted dishcloths at our Home Maker's Forum get-together in Caloundra in July....





...plus she created her version of the Stay Put Towel which is quite ingenious especially if your towels tend to 'wander'. 




She also surprised me with this beautifully made mug rug for my birthday. Whenever I am feeling down which for some reason seems to have happened a lot this year, I reach for a mug that has been given to me by one of my friends and that tends to make me feel a little better. So now as well as my 'comfort mugs' I have a lovely mug rug to sit them on as well while I drink my coffee and contemplate the issues of life. 

Back to the giveaway now....unfortunately it is only open to Australian readers. To enter just leave a comment below saying you would like to enter and if you can't comment, as I know some people can't, then leave a message via the Contact Form which you can find on the right hand side as you scroll down towards the bottom of the page. 

You have until midnight on Sunday 3rd December to enter and the next day a name will be pulled out of the hat and you will be notified ASAP. Then, if I don't have your contact details you can send me your address via the Contact Form and I will let Judy know and she will send the prize off to the winner and hopefully Australia Post will deliver the potholders before Christmas.

Thanks so much to Judy for being so generous. I am sure someone is going to be really blessed by winning these potholders.

    1. Nil unfortunately Australia Post has increased its postage costs and reduced services so posting overseas is quite expensive.

  17. Hi Chel, Wow, what a talented and very generous friend you have in Judy. The blues on her pot holders remind me of our NZ Paua shell, which is just gorgeous. I'd love to go in for a chance to win those. Please thank you so much for her generosity and yours for allowing them to leave your home and not keep them. Cheers Lyndie

    1. Ha ha Lyndie, the potholders didn't get this far as Judy is posting them to the winner from NSW to save double postage costs. Otherwise I might have been tempted to keep them :-)
