End of summer giveaway~!

Well here in Edinburgh it's certainly feeling like summer might be over and autumn is waiting in the wings raring to go - the sun has lost the height of her warmth, the leaves are looking tired and beginning to turn, and the light has that distant, hazy feel... .

Now, autumn is my favourite season, so I'm more than ready for it - but seeing as we did actually have a bit of summer this year, and that it inspired me to experiment with more summery colours in my work, I thought I would celebrate with my first ever blog giveaway!

Awaiting her new home is 'Mitheithel':

Mitheithel is a brooch, made from hand-dyed threads, silk filament, merino roving and cotton nepps, in shades of lilac, buddleia, clematis and forget-me-not, with summer-sea aquamarine a touch of gold. I felted these, with my embellisher, onto wisteria-coloured hand-dyed cotton fabric, set on black felt baize and edged with turquoise whip-stitch.
She measures almost 4.5cm not-quite-square, and has a gold metal brooch finding with safety catch.

If you would like to enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment on this post, and I will choose the winner at random in a week's time (so remember to log in first before commenting so I can see who you are!).

Good luck~!
