Yes, that’s right! A real, live book!! And it’s out now!
Way back in August 2011 the lovely people from Penguin contacted us to ask if we’d be interested in contributing some crafty projects to a new Christmas book. Of course we were super surprised and delighted to be asked, and we jumped at the chance! We were very busy bees at the end of last year, getting everything finished for the deadline in early January, in between working our day jobs and doing all the usual stuff like looking after this little blog. All up we contributed six projects to Handmade Christmas, including some crochet baubles and a crochet snowflake garland by Reuben, as well as some little terrariums, reusable teabags, ornaments and a tabel runner by Katie. We are so pleased with the finished book and we still can’t quite believe our work is in it! It’s a little bit surreal seeing our names on the list of contributors.
Of course it wouldn’t be right not share a little of our joy with you guys, so to celebrate our fancy new roles as “book contributors” we’ve got one copy of Handmade Christmas to giveaway! To enter, simply leave us a comment telling us your favourite thing about Christmas. We’ll select a winner at random next Wednesday the 10th of October.
Wishing you all a sunshiney weekend, full of good things and happy faces!
