Faith Hope and Giveaways!

Right lovely people, to celebrate winning a blog award, and in the spirit of  getting rid of clutter  thanking my loyal readers, I have a few prizes to offer in a my first ever giveaway! Oh yes, be excited. I have tried to make them vaguely relevant to my posts so far, but sadly all the birthday cake is gone - so I can't offer any black iced sponge delights. Shame. Anyway, here are the three fabulous prizes on offer (open to international readers too)


Two small vintage pyrex jelly moulds so you can start your own collection . Or just stick 'em on a shelf to gather dust.



In honour of my utterly lackadaisical approach to embroidery at craft group; a brand new (but with small tear in back cover) copy of Stitch by Cath Kidston. This comes with everything you need to make a floral purse. And yes, I know I've been rude about the sainted Cath. I don't hate her, honestly, it's just the sight of all her stuff en masse that sets my teeth on edge. I prefer the original items that she ripped off  inspired her. And I'm more rock chick than polka dotty.



The first ever issue of Simply Homemade magazine, the modern day Golden Hands. It has articles on crafts from soap making to stencilling, and has two free gifts - some pretty rubber stamps and a selection of printed papers.


Now onto the rules.
You can enter for any or all of the prizes, but you can only win a maximum of one.
To enter, please follow me publicly by Google Friend Connect (on the right hand sidebar) Then leave me a comment on this post saying which prize or prizes you'd like to win.
For an extra chance, you can follow me on Twitter @FHCShopping and tweet about the competition, linking back to this post, letting me know you've done that as well.
Or you can mention and link to the competition on a blog post of your own - which will also get another entry.
I - or a small child of my choice - will pick the winners on 28th March - Good luck!

  6. Kylie - if you win them I will wrap in one of your granny blankets and put back on the boat to you!

    Scarlett - heh, I like her sewing book. And I do own a pincushion and sewing kit that are Cath K. And (whisper it) there is a patchwork cushion I made from her fabrics on my bed!

  7. Oh Lakota, I love them all! What a lovely giveaway, I would be very pleased with any of them! But if I had to choose it would be the Cath Kidson stitch, been a self taught sewer this would be perfect. Congratulations on your blog award! Bx

  8. What a fab giveaway! If I was lucky enough to win I'd choose the jelly moulds, I broke mine when I was cleaning the other day and I've just discovered that the local Asian superstore sells vegan jelly. xxx

  9. Oohhh...how exciting! Congrats on the award. Any of those prizes is pretty tip-top-tastic although I do have a penchant for a jelly mould and having had a 'childrens party food' craving when I was pregnant and after yesterday discovering a friend has the same craving now.....it is quite apt really! x

  13. I thought I was already, but am definitely now following you on GFC. I'd love the Cath Kidston, mostly to be inspired, because once I've finished my current project I really can't justify buying full price embroidery kits, and could do with expanding my self-taught skills.

  28. Hi Lakota...I wended my way here and there and think I got through to you via Scarlett. Would love to take part and have a hankering for the Simply Handmade gift which would probably be the easiest for you to mail abroad should I happen to be lucky enough to win. I will now post a link to your competition on my blog...I'm afraid (well not really) that I don't Twitter...

  29. ps.Forgive the additional comment, but I just wanted you to know that your competition details are in the right hand column of my blog. I wanted to keep my current post at the top for fairly obvious reasons...you will understand if you take a look.

  36. I found you a while back via vintagevixen.

    I never win anything, so I don't need to pick prize!

    But you'll be happy to know that Cath Kidson is relatively unknown here on the Canadian Prairies.
