Giveaway time...

Last year I designed a project for the book 'Countdown Calendars'


It's a 'How long till school starts?' calendar with felt patches with pictures appliqued on them,


which flip over to count down the days either to starting school for the very first time or a brand new term.


The pattern and instructions to make one are included in the book, or...


you could leave a comment on this post to win mine!

I'll leave it open until next monday, ie Halloween to draw a winner.

What a fab giveaway - As my son is always asking the question "how long until _______"! that book would be perfect for our family!

RareImports said...

i saw your other works and im really impressed. this is kind of like the books my mom used to read when i was a kid, but ive always loved it and still do. i sell my own quilts online, through import and exporting goods. i wonder if you sell elsewhere other than etsy?

this is a wonderful idea, i remember the joy of going to my friends house when i was little to play with a calender she had with pouches and stick on bits and it would never fail to draw me in, such is the wonderful appeal of felt.x
