Giveaway!

Hello! I am rather excited right now because I have some very lovely and gorgeous treats for you in a giveaway today. I don't say this enough: readers, I thank each and every one of you who visits my little corner of the internet for your support and your friendship. Your comments bring me much happiness, and the connections I've built with other bloggers around the world have been nothing but joyful and rewarding. Those who pop in but don't comment - I love that you do that too and I thank you for it.

So. We have Giveaway A which includes a beautiful Emily Peacock "Kiss" tapestry kit, a rather gorgeous Greengate tea towel and a little cashmerino crochet garland made by my own fair hands. I thought the colours went quite nicely together.


And in Giveaway B we have an Emily Peacock "Hug" tapestry kit, a delicious Gillian Kyle tea towel made from the nicest, softest-feeling unbleached, organic cotton, and a print with a pretty great quote by Nikki McWilliams. I agree with the sentiment and feel that, while a cup of tea and a Tunnock's Tea Cake might not solve everything, they may make it all easier to bear.


I am happy to be able to offer you these things; they are products which are very definitely "me" and things which I would gladly buy or make and want in my own home. My first ever blog post was about my own "Kiss" tapestry kit which I started when I was pregnant with Angus and, to my shame, never completed. My mum took it off my hands last year, finished it, framed it and it now looks very nice in her living room. And that is why I offer these kits these to you - I would never finish them!


Please note that the kits are exactly that - kits - and include canvas, wool thread and a colour chart. You can then make it up into a cushion or frame it when you've completed it. These kits are the smaller of the two sizes and would usually cost £54.99. Thank you Emily Peacock!

The tea towels are from the pretty marvelous online shop All Tea Towels. I have a bit of a thing about tea towels - I really love them, probably more than is normal. We have everyday ones, old ones for drying up things like the roasting tins, nice ones and then Tea Towels Which Must Never Be Used, like that really expensive one I bought in Anthropologie a few years ago, my treasured Emma Bridgewater limited edition Coronation tea towel and now this one. It's ok, John is fully trained on which tea towels are actually for use and which ones must simply hang over the oven door handle looking pretty. Whether you actually use these tea towels or just admire them is up to you of course. If you share my tea towel love then do visit All Tea Towels and have a browse. 

The Nikki McWilliams print is from Chirpy, an independent lifestyle and interiors shop here in Leeds. I sort-of know Harriet, who runs it - we met about a year ago through a mutual friend and she was in the process of setting up Chirpy then. It's been open for nearly a year now and it's a triumph, a treasure trove of beautifully selected and displayed products by independent local and UK designers and craftspeople...if you are at all near Leeds, do pop in. Thank you Harriet!

If you'd like to enter, then please:

1. Become a follower of this blog, either through bloglovin' or Google Friend Connect or Feedly, or by signing up for an email alert - whichever is your preference. If you've already done one of these, just let me know in the comment.

2. Tell me whether you would prefer Giveaway A or B in your comment.

That's it. The giveaway will close a week today, on 8th October at midnight and I'll announce the winner shortly after. Good luck!  

Edited to add: This giveaway is open to international readers too.

*********************************************************************

EDITED TO ADD:

This giveaway is now closed.  
Many thanks for all your comments.
I'll announce a winner in the next couple of days.
Thank you!

Louise said...

what a lovely idea for a give away :)
With the difficulties of full time teaching alongside full time PGCE this year, I really relate to the cup of tea and tunnocks tea cake thing! I wish they really could solve everything, but tea does certainly keep my brain going just that little bit longer! Tea fuelled me through my degree a good few years ago and I think it'll help me through this too, if I don't drown in paperwork first!

I just joined up by email. I would like giveaway B, if I have a choice and win. Thanks for including international entries.

If I was lucky enough to win, I would love prize A because it has your lovely garland in it, but either would be a wonderful thing. I love to do tapestries! Thank you.

Ruby Lu said...

Ooo how exciting. I already follow your lovely blog and am excited to read about your giveaway. How to chose between A and B though? Difficult decision. Do I prefer a hug or a kiss? Well, your bunting swayed me - please can you enter my name for Giveaway A. Thanks for the opportunity Gillian.

Lucy Cunningham said...

As I am blogless at the moment, although thinking about setting one up, I have signed up for your e-mail alert as I enjoy reading your blog. It is not just me then that loves tea-towels - I have a Greengate one that I am going to frame for my kitchen wall. If you could put my name in the draw for the Tunnock's Teacake Teatowel she said alliteratively, I would be ever so grateful. Thank you. Lucy x PS I may be the last person in Britain without a dishwasher, so I need a teatowel (although it would not get used for drying dishes really).

Jo said...

I'm already a follower and would be thrilled to win either set of prizes, they're all so lovely. I shall make a note of Chirpy and pop in the next time I'm in Leeds.

Howards House said...

I'm already a follower and love reading your blog. Both kits are gorgeous and I'd be more than happy to receive either, were I to be lucky and win, but with my littlest boy being called "Hugo" or "Hugs" for short, I think I should choose B.

I am a new follower but have fallen in love with your blog! If I cam luck enough to win I would prefer give away A. Even if I don't win thank you for your generosity, this is an amazing gift to give.

Leanne said...

Good grief, but that's a lot of people entering your giveaway! Can I too please? I think both A & B are great, but seeing as you live in Leeds and I have very happy memories of going to the Burma garage opposite the Hyde Park pub at stupid o'clock in the morning to buy cigs and Tunnocks Tea Cakes.... option B would be lovely. xxxxx

Susan Smith said...

It's lovely of you to have a giveaway, but please don't enter me in it as being in Oz, it's way to expensive in postage, but thanks for the comments on my last post. Take care Susan.

Julie said...

I have popped onto your blog every so often for a while now as I love reading your posts & seeing your lovely photos. Your very generous giveaway has spurred me on to 'officially' follow you - my first one ever!
If I should be lucky enough to win, please could I have Giveaway A - I am 3/4 way through my own Hug cushion (only taken about 10 months so far!) and would love to have the pair (eventually!). I also already have a number of Gillian Kyle Tunnocks items, I knew we had similar tastes :) Thanks for the chance to win Gillian & I'm looking forward to keeping more up to date with your posts.

veronica said...


L ovely giveaways - both of them, and I would love to win either - your choice! I am a follower .I haven't done any tapestry for quite a while but these are so tempting.

Anonymous said...

I have been a follower for a while now, I would love to win kit A. I have to say though, having 2 boys if I actually made a cushion that said kiss they would probably hit one another with it and then say "I was just giving you a kiss!"

Blods said...

I have been reading your blog for a long time and have just signed up to be an official follower, which is a first for me! I would love to enter your fab give away and would love set A if I were lucky enough to win as my daughter has been longing for one of these cushion sets for ages. Just wanted to say I enjoyed your Copenhagen post so much that we ended up spending a week there this summer, which was absolutely fantastic, so, many thanks for the inspiration!

Anonymous said...

Oh Gillian what a fab array of goodies, I would love to be entered to have a chance to win A. I follow you through bloglovin but do not comment as often as I should. Wishing you a wonderful day. Hugs Elisa xx liseylou1971@ymail.com

Carolyn Pryce said...

Ooh just discovered you via the lovely Chirpy store, lovely site! I'd love set B mainly as a cup of tea really DOES solve, well almost, everything! Especially with cake.... x

Petersson13 said...

Hello, I've been following you for a while on Blogger...does that count? I hope so! I've been yearning for these kits for a while, but if I have to choose, I'd like A....who could resist your fab garland?! Btw, I hope cable and cotton have thanked you, I reckon you are single handedly responsible fr a massive hike in sales!!!

larryjaybee said...

hello, what a lovely giveaway! amazin! have been following for awhile now on blogger but did recently follow through bloglovin too. i would LOVE "B" as i already have the kiss embroidery as my 90 yer old granny did it for me and my husband as a wedding present, its framed and hung with pride on our living room wall. x

As I have completed 'Hug' (though yet to make it into a cushion) I would very much like to win giveaway - thank you

Caroline Keen said...

OMG I love this blog. Have been having so much fun looking through your blog I almost forgot to enter the competition.
Giveaway A please :)

Feisty Tapas said...

I would love to win A (although to be honest would be just as happy with B, what a fabulous giveaway). Following through Google Friend Connect (discovered your blog because Emily Peacock shared the giveaway on her page)

Nutcracker said...

October 11th is my birthday, I hope to win option A please, many thanks!

Mary Wild said...

I followed on Google :) Although I have been here before and sure I was already following but hey ho! How am I supposed to choose between A and B? Either would do me nicely! But if I had to choose . . . . . . . . (long pause) B. I think.

Hello,
I recently discovered the wonderful world of blogs a couple of months ago and was lead to yours and have been a secret follower ever since! I have about 10 crafty blogs that I check daily in anticipation of a new 'fix' of a post. This lovely giveaway has given me the impetus to sign up to bloglovin which will change my blog habits for sure! This is also my first comment! I have been umming and aaaahing about creating my own blog, and if I won here, this could be the start of a blog for me! Both of the tapestries are stunning but I would have to go for 'hug' with the Tunnock's tea cake tea-towel. My Scottish husband introduced me to them and they are enormously popular in our house. Whilst I am here I want to thank you for your brill coverage of Yarndale, you really captured the essence of it and I loved the post 'a dry spell'- it was just how we felt after our holiday and it made me chuckle that we weren't the only ones! Thanks for your blog-I really look forward to your new posts! (sorry for the essay!) All the best, Michelle M
