{Giveaway} A Spooky Bundle!

Its been ages since we've had a giveaway of any sorts, and this ones a good one, even if I do say so myself!

A little while ago, just before my jolly to Weymouth, we reached 6000 likes over on Facebook, or as I like to call them Facebook Friends!

We had a bit of an issue with how to do the Giveaway via Facebook as there seemed to be lots of rules and regulations.  You had to use a third party app, most of which I didnt understand, you couldn't notify the winner via Facebook but had to be by email, well I dont have most of my likers emails so how did that work??  I know we have run giveaways before via Facebook but I didnt want to risk my page being shut down and losing all my lovely Facebook Friends

Anyway, to cut a long and not very interesting story short, Facebook announced within the last 48 hours that their rules have changed and I can now host the giveaway exactly as I want to!!

So here it is lovely bloggy friends....

Its a spooky one!  You can win four FQs of Halloween fabric and six metres of coordinating ric rac and ribbon.  This is especially good if you're looking for inspiration for your Halloween makes this year as the possibilities are endless with this bundle!  Perhaps you could add some black binding to make some spooky bunting for a Halloween Party?

To enter, just pop on over to our Facebook page and like and share the giveaway.  For extra entries, simply follow our blog over on the left or follow us on twitter.

Feel free to comment below or over on our Facebook page and you have until Wednesday 4th September to enter.  Winners will be announced on Friday 6th September.

Good Luck!!

{Whats New} Autumn Feel Fabrics

Oh how I love autumn.  Easily my favourite time of year...summer is to hot, winter is too cold but autumn is just right (in the words of Goldilocks!).  I love the colours that are associated with autumn and when I saw this collection, I new I had to have it in the shop because it would make perfect little dresses for autumn!

The collection is by Sue Daley for Riley Blake Designs and is called Tueigs and Grace (pronounced too-igs? Please correct me if Im wrong!)

Calico in Pink

Damask in Cream

Garden in Pink

Petals in Brown...and my favourite!
The Petals is my favourite and already, I have a picture of a little pinafore dress with tights and boots for the winter for my littlest one! 

So, thats this week new fabric, Im looking forward to the next lot already!

Which print is your favourite??

I Do Like To Be....

Beside the seaside! Sing along if you know it!

So the summer holidays are in their final weeks and we are enjoying the last few days of our holiday in Weymouth. One of the good things about having family all over the place is that you have lots of places to visit, and Weymouth is one of our favourites!  We've played on the beach, danced, laughed, ate a lot of ice cream and had a lovely lovely time.

I've missed my little shop though and am looking forward to getting back to it properly once the new school term starts! I've got lots of plans and of course lots of new fabrics to come.

In the meantime, I thought I'd bore you with a few holiday snaps :)

Love these sand sculptures at Weymouth Beach.  They are out of this world!
Can you believe I saw my very first Punch and Judy show this weekend?
Shocking I know!
These guys make me so happy!!  My handsome hubby, my two little girlies and me
all had an amazing holiday. 

ps Don't forget you have a few more days to use the SUMMERSALE code to get 30% off your order

{Whats New} I hate to be the one to mention it....

But if you havent already seen over on our Facebook page our Christmas fabrics are now in stock!!

I know I know, Christmas starts earlier every year and the summer holidays arent even over yet but I've had these on order since last Christmas!  Things start earlier in the fabric world!

Our first Christmas collection is by Riley Blake and is called A Merry Little Christmas.   I love Riley Blake's designs so it went without saying I was going to order their Christmas range.  The second one I picked was this one by Clothworks...

This one's called Not Even A Mouse and reminded me of my favourite Christmas book, The Night Before Christmas!  Very glad I ordered it cos its super cute and the diamonds are perfect for smaller Christmas makes.

Will be adding Christmas ribbons and other lovely bits and pieces as they arrive but these were the first to hit The Sewing Boutique HQ so thought I'd add them now for you super organised crafters!  We do of course have a section on the website where all our Christmas goodies will appear in one place.

Thats it....I promise not to mention Christmas again until at least October ;)
