Fantastic Giveaway

Hi all,
You may be aware of the popularity of Harris Tweed at the moment.
There are all sorts of items made from it nowadays!

Recently, an email appeared in my inbox, telling me about a new e-book 
which has just been released.

Harris Tweed Appliqué For Beginners by Chris Hammacot

Harris Tweed Appliqué ebook with video

It's a beautiful book, filled with information, wonderful easy to follow
 instructions, video clips, photographs & more.
You will, without a doubt be inspired to try out the technique, using this wonderful fabric.

Create hand or machine applique with 'Harris Tweed' - in easy steps! Chris Hammacott leads you through plump cushions, quirky tea cosies, a table runner and a wall-hanging, all given the rugged but cosy personality of 'Harris Tweed'. Designs are inspired by Chris's croft life on the Isle of Lewis; and her sheep, chickens, cats and pugs. 

The Kindle cover has reverse applique sheep.

Three-dimensional flowers enhance a sweater.

Follow the guidelines and techniques, and watch the author demonstrating on the video clips. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more advanced student, Chris will convince you of the wonderful qualities of 'Harris Tweed' for applique.

The book is available for download or as a CD Rom from
either Vivebooks here or Amazon here.

However, I have one copy of the book on CD Rom to giveway.
To be in with a chance to win, simply add your details to the linky below.

You don't have to have a blog to enter.
It would be lovely if you were a follower of my blog but it's not necessary.
It would also be great if you could share this with your friends so that they 
can come & join in the fun too.


  1. What a lovely offer. The effect looks amazing x

  2. Oh goodness, I've not done any appliqué for years - not since I discovered papercrafting. Look at how it's grown up and moved with the times! There are some stunning designs there.

  4. As Holley says, it is so kind of you to give this prize away, but I too will leave it for an applique devotee as it isn't something that I would use.

  5. What a sweet idea, Dawn! You're so generous. :-D
