Celebratory CUSTOM embroidery GIVEAWAY

The beginning has begun!
And I'm feeling pretty amazing right now! :)
 ....though if you'd asked me yesterday the mood was somewhat different...what with having the most elated drive home from work, then walking in the door to tantrums,tears and a very "thrawn" Stu! Nothing like parenthood to bring you back to earth with a thud! :)
Anyhoos as always balance is restored to "normal" for now, and I'm basking in the JOY that is this new step in my life....embarking on my creative biz dreams...which is definitely worth CELEBRATING! 
fabric journal for my sis!

"Say Cheese" available in my etsy shop

"Walkies!"
So.....As you'll probably gather from my growing collection of sewn people..I slightly enjoy doing it!! :) I think it's the simplicity of sewn lines catching little moments that makes me smile the most....

"Bounce!"

Pattern is available here in my bloom and sew shop!

And I was wondering if maybe YOU would like a sweet memory stitched of your own? Would you like a photograph/image that captures a treasured moment for you to be simplified in stitches and "quirked" up with a little  loveandpeas?! :)

Sooooo if you want to join in this FABBY! custom embroidery giveaway all you need to do is be a follower (if you aren't already) and leave me a comment below. If you announce it from the rooftops (or your blog!) you'll get 2 entries....and any other bit of promo of ingenuity gets an exta entry too!!
I'll be randomly drawing the winner in 2 weeks time (Fri Feb 10th) and then will await the image of choice until I get stitching away!
I can't wait to see what treasured moment I'll be stitching up and wee Jeanie my Machinie is revving up ready to get going too! :)xx

    1. Jenny, I have been a follower of your blog for a long time and I have loved watching your business and you grow. I truely love your stiched drawings of people, they are amazing and completely your own style. You know they are your work as soon as you see them - that makes them unique. I hope things really take off in your new venture. Meanwhile, I can't tell you how much I WOULD LOVE to be the very proud owner of one of your pieces of precious work. It would make my heart sing and I can't promise to do start jumps like you because gravity keeps me grounded, but I'd be doing them in my heart. Thanks for the chance of being picked. x

  18. Hello Jenny, have just found your wonderful blog and what luck - am in time for a giveaway! From a fellow textiley person, I am in huge admiration of your stitched people work - I find it impossible to get the proportions right so never ever try to do people/animals anymore, and instead stick to cupcakes and flowers! I would be honoured to receive one of your beautiful works of art if I were to be the lucky winner :) Jenny x

  25. I thought I had already posted! I am not sure what happened, but I love these, really love these. I can think of so many things that would look great as an embroidered postcard from my own life - like the children paddling or boogey boarding for the first time, flying kites, leaning into the wind on Chesil beach, ice skating outside, roller skating and skateboarding or even snuggling up with a book. Thank you for entering my name in the giveaway

  27. Embroidered bags, apparel and home items are highly desired, but many people don't have the skill or the time to complete projects. If you enjoy embroidery projects and have the equipment, you may consider starting a part-time or full-time business selling your work. Establishing appropriate and huge discounts will help you entice clients and get your business off the ground.Custom Embroidery
