Who won?

I decided to go "old school" for my giveaway and wrote everyone's (abbreviated!)names on raffle tickets, scrunched them up and handed the hat to MrNifty...

Congratulations Sarah! I'll be in touch to ask for your mailing address, then the prize-winning meerkat will be on his way to you.

My own prize, from Homecrafts, was to spend £50 on supplies from their shop, can't wait to get my goodies - and I can promise you some new designs as a result!

Competition and Giveaway!

Remember the Homecrafts competition I was invited to enter? You can see the entries here. We were each sent a box of random yarns and asked to work our magic. I asked if I could use other yarns as well (no) and if I could use stuffing and wire (yes)...and as you know, came up with the two meerkats. They're one-of-a-kind because the yarns are so different from my usual.

Anyway, long story short wanna know who won?

 I want to share the love! I'm offering one lucky winner the choice of either of these very special niftyknits meerkats. To help you decide, you can see more pictures of them here.

How to enter?

Two ways. I'll put your name in the virtual hat for each entry, so if you choose to use both ways of entering, you've got two chances!

#1 leave a comment below saying which meerkat you'd like *and* a way to contact you. Don't forget, if your blogger profile is set to private I will NOT be able to find you there. 

#2 Go to any of my shops Folksy or Etsy or Zibbet , select your favourite item and come back here and leave the link. Again, please make sure you leave a way to contact you.

Good luck! I'll choose the winner randomly on Sunday evening (UK time) 12th August. Open to all, international, as always. Thank you once again, Homecrafts!

******************GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**************
Thanks everyone - I'll announce the winner tomorrow.

Halloween Collaboration

Trick or treat, anyone? I asked my friend Abi from AbiBoothArt  to needle felt some pumpkins for the meerkats, and she's done a fabulous job!

 Meerkats with pumpkins are available from folksy and etsy or of course you can buy the pumpkin direct from Abi.

Happy Halloween!
