Gifts and giveaway!

i have just opened the most lovely gift from Penny, just look at these tea towels, and iv'e tried to do a close up because Penny has stitched "Sarah's Kitchen" on them, although these are far to nice to actually use and they are going to be just for show !
In my fav colours too!

right, heres the giveaway, my pics have all come out the wrong way round,but here goes, Penny you are going to be so proud of me..... i have at last worked out how to do the little crochet things and this is my first one, although she's not spot on perfect i am very pleased with her, so just leave your comments and we will do a draw for the winner of her.
Next up is the last of my order for the tea and cake room, its baking kits made using calico fabric, inside is childrens baking things and then tied up with rope and a cookie cutter added to the tie.
Here's my new camera bag from Penny also, do you remember the wrap up bag i had made with the same fabric, well now i have this great camera bag to go with it, i LOVE it, check out Penny's blog, i think she may have some in her shop.
inside has extra padding and a little pocket to store your memory card in etc.

Also these came from Penny, i just love crochet dish/face cloths and Penny has made these two for me, again i dont think i can bring myself to actually use them,lol, too nice.

Thank you so much Penny.
Also the babushka keyrings in the last post, i am making some more of the fabric flat ones, i have had a few emails asking about them so i will try and get some more made up this weekend.

lovely tea towels and face cloths, although I don't think I could use them either, they are so pretty! - You are so clever to have crocheted that little doll (I will get past the chain stage one day I hope!) Hope you are ok and the dentist wasn't too bad - Natalie x

You are a lucky girl, you are right the tea towels are to beautiful to use for such a mundane task like drying pots!

I love your camera bag and those tea towels are way too nice to use.
Strangely enough I have just got a pattern for Russian dolls like yours and have made 3, will pop them on my blog later. They are very cute.
Keep my name out of your hat, I'll wait to do the Christmas swap instead.

Wow, what lovely goodies!! I love your camera bag. So much prettier than any you can buy.

Your little crocheted doll is beautiful - I love the colours you've used :)

I think we'd all enjoy washing up much more with pretty tea towels like those.....what am I talking about? Nothing could ever make me enjoy the washing up!! I'd have to keep those teatowels to stroke and admire too :)

What a lovely blog! So pink and so delicious :) I love it. I guess we both have giveaways at our blogs in the same time. It seems that you like pink colour and cupcakes, so you may find my cuppy cake giveaway tempting :)
Anyway can you please put my name into the draw too?
I'm adding you to my Bloglines and will be coming back :)

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

All so so so darling! I love all of them. I do have a little soft spot for the crochet doll. She's lovely. But a camera bag would be nice. You do just such lovely work.

The little crochet doll is lovely. One day I WILL learn to crochet. Most of my teatowels are for show since the arrival of a dishwasher but your new ones I would have to frame!!

What lovely things - I love crochet, but have only managed squares and rounds. I'd love to try a little friend. And I wouldn't use the dishcloths either!
