Mollie Makes Giveaway!



It seems like a long time ago when I made these little chaps - in our old cottage, back in the Spring before we moved. Cottages and houses really are the dominant theme this year.


 


And now at last, they are in the gorgeous new 'Mollie Makes' project series, published by Anova Books. I opened my latest mag to see this - and a lovely in-house photo of my little cottages.






The nice people at Anova have offered a giveaway of a free copy to a lucky winner - just leave a comment on my blog here, and I'll draw all the names out of a hat on Wednesday morning October the 10th - so get your name down before then, and I'll send the winner's email address to the publishers. Open to the Whole World. 

I've already got my copies - so many lovely things in there, I feel happy just looking at it.





Oh, and if you'd like a bonus entry, subscribe to Lovecraft/Anova Twitterfeed

      GIVE-AWAY IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ENTERING!

Thoroughly deserved Gretel. I would love to win the book - it would be fantastic inspiration for the children at school. I could adapt and possibly simplify the ideas so that we could have a go.

Frances said...

Gretel, here's a happy coincidence. After a midday visit to the Union Sq. farmers market, I stopped off at the nearby Barnes & Noble shop to pick up the MM issue with the buttons stuck on to the cover. (I don't buy each issue but liked the look of this one.)

So...now I see that the wise folks at MM have now included you in another of their publications. Please do put my name in that hat and give that hat a really good shake!

Over here, autumn is creeping in. Cooler and cooler, days shorter and shorter. I am doing a lot of knitting.

The Park is lovely just now...mostly still very green.

Sweet little houses....

Throw my name in the hat too please. I would love to open my letterbox and find a Royal Mail stamp on a parcel from the UK....too exciting.

landofbreadandhoney said...

Oh this looks good! It's funny, I made some felted houses not too unlike these a couple of Christmases ago - I'd completely forgotten about them till I saw these! Still seems too soon to be thinking about Christmas though :)
