Tilda's Spring Ideas- A Giveaway & A Mini Book Review



 I have been meaning to do a giveaway with this book for the last month (or so), and seeing all of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day posts today has finally spurred me into action.  As well as the book, I will also include a little scrap pack surprise for the lucky winner, can't say fairer than that!

So, onto the Mini Book Review:
The Tilda brand of Tone Finnanger is generally considered legendary in sewing "circles", as a go to series for cute and stylish Scandinavian style makes, and this one doesn't disappoint.  It has a lovely collection of items to make, including a Garden Party Angel, Sewing(!) Angel, the cutest garden bug I've ever seen, quick make fabric flowers, and a beautiful sewing kit.  

I would describe it as a Project Book (11 in total, by my counting), rather than one of the full sized Tilda Books (like Sew Pretty Homestyle which I already own), but that doesn't stop the pages being positively strokeable, and the photography absolutely sublime.  I mean, seriously, who doesn't want to go and live in Tone Finnangers perfect world once they've seen the photos in her books?!

This is a great little book, perfect for those new year projects, when you've finished stuffing yourself with turkey, and wine, and look forward to those fresh and bright spring days to blow away the cobwebs! In fact, why am I giving it away, now that's got to be a mistake, especially as that little Garden Bug is soooooo adorable.
So, if you love Tilda, get your name down below, and you never know, you just might win (someone has to!).

Rules:
It's open internationally.  
Leave a comment below, and if you're a no reply blogger be sure to leave your email address in the comment so I can get in touch with you.  
It would be great if you were a follower, but it's not necessary for this giveaway, and if you get the chance, take a look around.
1 entry per person please, and I will have to delete second comments if there are any, as it could get very confusing if not!

I will pick a winner at random on Sunday the 9th of December, 8pm UK time.  

This book is also available to buy at RU Craft in the UK.

  4. I love Tilda! You can see that I'm really addicted to it if you happen to stop by my blog prettyhandmadeBCN. I don't have this book although it has been on my amazon's wishlist since it was released last May. However, it's not easy to find in Spain, where I live. Thank you very much for the giveaway
