  1. What a wonderful competition! I have quite a few favourite blogs on bloglovin but if I had to pick one it would patchwork heart for my crochet inspiration x

  2. Hey Claire – wow what a wonderful bounty to win!! I have been following your blog for quite a while now so already done there 🙂 I am from NZ and have moved here with hubby and boys to Cambridge and it was actually your blog that helped cement for us that we were choosing the most wonderful place in the UK to settle – I have loved your snippets and posts to do with Cambridge and of course your craftiness is uba wonderful too, well you whole damn blog is just too cute!! 🙂

  3. Hi there! What lovely items to give away – you are so generous. I love the look of the measuring cups – what a great idea. Also I am looking for a screen printing class here in Singapore at the moment so the Printmaking book looks like something I should be reading! I am already following you on WordPress and would love you check out this blog called: Love Those “Hands at Home” – especially the latest post about her cat – I promise you will be emotional after reading it (no the cat doesn’t die). I will try my best to do the Twitter and Instagram things but I’m a bit technically challenged! I have a UK address so even though I am overseas at the moment, I will be coming back to see family soon. Fingers crossed and good luck everyone! Cath

  4. Heyyy!

    What a fab giveaway, such a talented lady. I get totally lost in Instagram with how amazing crafty ladies like yourself are and the products you guys produce.

    I’m new to the whole blogging scene but I enjoy reading Spotted Roses’ blog! xx

  5. Hi, I’m so glad I found your blog through twitter and just in the for your favourite competition!

    I have two current fave blogs, Catch a single thought, and Write like no-one’s watching. Both well written and really engaging.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts xx

  6. Hi Claire – What a fantastic giveaway this is with some truly lovely prizes! I am already following your blog via email/wordpress and following you on Twitter. I think your blog is great and love keeping up to date with your creative exploits, but if I had to choose another I would say Sarah Moore Vintage ( I discovered her when reading your interview with her back in 2012 and I love her designs. Her recent success with the Great Interior Design Challenge has inspired me to create something really special – I have just moved house in the last couple of weeks! My new place is bigger and I now have a whole cupboard dedicated to baking, which is crying out for some measuring cups; and my next craft project is to teach myself printmaking so that I can make cushions and other items for the house, so the book would be the perfect addition to my crafting collection. I also love your designs and accessories, especially the button rings – which would go perfectly with the antique gold bird pendant I bought last year – well, presents to self are mandatory aren’t they? …and who can resist the adorable heart garlands and coffee cup warmer!
    Keep up the good work! :o)

  7. Been following you for a while on Bloglovin for a while and really enjoy all you past – share your passion for cycling but I am more a spectator these days. Along with you my favourite blogs have to be Attic24 and Bunny Mummy. To be honest I love all things crafty and crochet.

  8. That phone is so awesome! My mobile is broken and I have to use headphones to talk on it, I reckon I wouldn’t mind with one of those! lol! To be honest my fav blog is yours (no kidding, I am not sucking up honest ;)) I like the lovely Alices blog over at knitnrun4sanity too because you are both lovely and supportive ladies xx

  13. Wow what a wonderful give away! The spotty tea cup and saucer a beautiful. I read lots of different blogs, mostly craft or art based, one of my favourites is The Busy Mockingbird. Its written by an illustrator who draws the most amazing portraits, the twist being that her 4yr old collaborates with her adding on the bodies. Some very amusing pictures as a result. Worth a little look.

    Fingers crossed x

  15. Hi Claire,
    I’ve just registered my email to follow you by email, although I never miss one blog entry thanks to Feedly, and also follow you on Instagram and Facebook (but you know that).
    Lots of blog I love to follow:
    Yours because it inspires me a lot, I think you’ve done an amazing job in just 18 months (am I right?) to build a good reputation, a lovely and popular Etsy shop, and offer great creations at a very reasonable price. And you are also from Cambridge! 🙂
    I follow some other blogs… For crochet inspiration, my favourite is : (in French, but just looking at the picture is enough to make you crave for a crochet right here right now!!!)
    I’ll share your giveaway on my blog.
    (BTW, I would love to win the printing book. I’ve never tried to print my own fabric, but I have so many pattern ideas and love for fabric… and yarn, and beads, and… I’m an addict, really! So a new craft skill would be just great for me!)
