Give-away





Perhaps like me you need a bit of cheering up at this time of year, a bit of sunshine, a few birds tweeting, a daffodil nearly in flower, will do it. Perhaps a give-away will help too.





I will give away two pieces of my textile work, in fact the two pieces used for the covers of my blurb book.
 They are unframed.
 You will need to leave a comment on this post and either have your name on the Followers list or add it.  I will make the draw at the end of the month.

I have supported Jane Davies with her campaign to keep open the cute and I am sure really useful Post Office in Rupert, Vermont. If you have not heard about this, she asked for people to send post cards to boost the business at the Post Office and sent the first two hundred a post card in return. Well she has been overwhelmed and attracted 1200 cards from all over the world. If you have not seen it take a look here.

  2. I find it so sad to lose local services, I blame the supermarkets, you can buy anything from paint to stamps to garden furniture. I still try to shop locally, butcher, greengrocer and baker, it is no more expensive and at least you know where your food actually comes from. The giveaway is so lovely, is that feather stitch I see lots of? Such lovely cheerful colour palette you have used too. Jayne x

  4. Love these pieces and your work in general and would love to be included in the draw. I need cheering up most of the time at present - life if just not what I would like it to be.

  5. What a clever idea to bring awareness to the plight of the post office!!
    Smaller stores are being replaced in so many areas and each is a lost pearl of community.
    There have been so many grey days over here in UK.....bright and lush colours would be such a joy to herald spring!!

  6. Jackie, I love the cheerfulness of the pieces you are graciously giving away. Here in New Zealand, we are going into autumn - to me your pieces are autumnal in colour and mood. My favourite season...

  12. My husband and I used to own a small post office down here in Tasmania but we sold it a few years ago. I hope the post office in Rupert, Vermont does get to stay open. Thanks for the chance to win some of your gorgeous work.

  17. I've only recently discovered your blog but look forward to seeing your work and what you are up to, I particularly like the work that has developed from the rabbit skeleton. Thanks for sharing your amazing work

  18. Love the pieces - they have a free and dynamic feel to them. I strive for this in my work but so often find myself over - embellishing.

    I too love the work of Alice Fox - mentioned in your earlier post. It's beautiful and simple.

  19. It's such a shame when small local shops and stores close. Once they are gone it's too late, I worked in a store for a while but it closed, when we had a closing down sale so many people came in and said how much they loved the store, none of us recognised them. We all knew our regular customers.
