In an attempt at an uncharacteristic non-convoluted giveaway drawing, let’s get cracking and straight down to business.
Take one enthusiastic small person, two tickets to the Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show, an appropriate looking bag and all those entries up top.
Ask enthusiastic small person to pick out one ticket and stand vaguely still, so that Mummy can focus and photograph (nice try) and in so doing inform CLAIRE from MATCHING PEGS that she is Ticket Winner Number One (absolutely and entirely literally).
Request enthusiastic small person, who is beginning to demand her rights, draw a second Stitches & Craft Show winner...
Everyone stand on your head, or take my word for it that CAT from LADY BUG CAT is Ticket Winner Number Two.
Congratulations happy tickety winners! I’ll have ’em in the post as soon as I have your details.
Now for those of you who were feeling disappointed, geographically challenged and entered for the Cheer Up prize, think Julie Andrews, hold your heads high, SING to the sky...
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;
Brown paper packages tied up with strings;
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the dog bites,
When the bee stings,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad
I put together a few of my own favourite things for the Cheer-Up prize (no posted whiskered kittens though), along a Stitches & Craft green theme, which shall be duly brown paper ‘packaged’ and tied up with string:
1. Fabric and felt (hand dyed, 100% woollen deliciousness) and embroidery floss...
2. Vintage, (including some originals inherited from Eunice) and newer buttons from the button bowl...
3. A Myrtle & Eunice tea towel, that looks sort of more green when it’s not a gloomy, wintry old day – not that drying dishes is anyone’s version of a favourite anything (sorry).
Let’s go kid...
MEGAN from SOMEWHERE ALONG A WINDING PATH, cheer yourself up! Channel your inner Julie Andrews, locate a green hill, prance about – then email me your details.
The kid ended up on strike, but I reckon the giveaway draw when the dinosaur got involved, or when the chook packed the suitcase, was more convoluted by a kitten’s whisker...
PS. The Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show is on at the Caulfield Racecourse, from May 5 to 9. Download your guide here...
