Stitch it for Christmas: A Giveaway to Celebrate the Start of Book Month!

Remember that big pile of craft books I blogged about earlier this autumn? Well, I've got so many lovely books to review that I've decided that November = Book Month! Throughout the month I'll be sharing a whole bunch of crafty book reviews, and there will be some giveaways too (with my regular mix of random posts in between). I hope you'll enjoy it :)

To kick us off, I've got two copies of Stitch it for Christmas by Lynette Anderson to give away...


Stitch it for Christmas is about 50 pages long. It includes a short guide to the quilting and embroidery techniques you'll need, and 7 "festive projects to craft and quilt".


There are larger projects like this cushion (pillow) and table decoration...


... and smaller ones like these star-shaped Christmas ornaments...


... all with a country-style patchwork/quilting base to them and embellished with one of Lynette's quirky designs in either applique or embroidery. And of course you could also stitch the embroidery designs on anything you fancy making, or just on their own to be framed in an embroidery hoop as part of your festive decor.


Stitch it for Christmas is published by David and Charles. RRP £7.99. It's available from Amazon UK and Amazon USA, and from RUCraft. The fabrics used in the book are from Lynette's own festive fabric range, which is also available at RUCraft.


And I've got TWO copies to giveaway. Hurrah!

Just leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win. The lovely folks at David and Charles are happy to ship this internationally, so anyone can enter. Leave your comment before 10pm on Thursday 8th November, and I'll pick the winners at random on Friday 9th November.

Please make sure you leave a name or pseudonym (no anonymous comments please!) and leave a blog link, Twitter username, Etsy username or email address so I can contact you. If I'm unable to contact either of the winners within two weeks, I will pick someone else.

Apparently some people are having problem leaving comments on my blog at the moment. If you're unable to leave a comment here on my blog, you can enter via my shop's contact form instead. Please make sure you say which giveaway you're entering!

[P.S. The Amazon links in this post are affiliate links which means if you click on them and then make a purchase I get a very small % as a referral fee.]

This giveaway is now closed.

Oooh yes please I would love the chance to win this book... Ok, so it would probably be used for next year's projects, but given that I've not yet finished the advent calendar wallhanging I started in April, I should probably get going for Xmas 2013 very soon!

Love your blog,
Becky
