Valentines Heart.....Cabbages & Roses Give Away...........................

Cabbages and Roses Podge Cerise

Cabbages and  Roses' Hatley Pink'

It is always very exciting and rewarding to get together and collaborate with other artists and makers, and I have been invited to do just that......

Together with Cabbages and Roses I have designed and lovingly made these two Romantic Heart cushions, one of which will be a Valentines GIVE AWAY on the 14th of February Valentines Day of course xx............. 
Cabbages and Roses have chosen and provided me with two co-ordinating pieces
 of their beautiful fabric, Hatley Pink and Podge Cerise. and have given me inspiration from their wonderful book 'Vintage Crafts'.

I have also used from my personal stash some vintage fabrics and some French silks, which I think just lend themselves perfectly to that contemporary yet traditional look at Cabbages and Roses.
To enter the draw for the Pink Hatley Heart Cushion please leave a comment on my blog and tell me which is your favourite Cabbages and Roses fabric.
To receive extra entries and a further chance of winning you can post this 'give away' onto your blog or any of your social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, then let me know you have done that in an extra comment so you don't miss out in the draw.
 Don't Forget to also visit Cabbages and Roses blog for all of their latest and exciting news.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous Valentines day...Good Luck..
Lynn xxxxx

Golly! That was confusing! I thought I had to comment on CxR website's blog and couldn't find the right place. Now I've read properly and see it's your blog I'm commenting on to win the giveaway - and I think after that I deserve it! PS favourite fabric is the Hatley.

And the cabbage and roses fabric is on my want list! I want all my cushions in my living room to be made out of this beautiful and faded looking fabric!

I have always loved the Hatley print - I think it was the first print and it epitomizes the soft relaxed country vibe that Cabbages and Roses has come to be known for. I have always promised myself that one day I will wallpaper one of the walls in my bedroom with the wallpaper in the Hatley pink print. Your hearts look beautiful and I would so love to won one! Helen

Fragments said...

They are really beautiful Lynn, and it must be exciting for you xx

Time to Dream said...

Beautiful blog as always. I just adore the Cabbages and Roses items you have made - they have inspired me to dust off my sewing machine and become creative again so thank you.

I would really love to enter your drawer and just hope you will consider me.......

Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day
Hope is to remain positive when going gets tough
Hope is seeking more when others think u had enough
Hope is dreaming of tommorow
Hope is simmering under sorrow
Hope is sparkles when tears in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing & beutiful things never dies
Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together
Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost.....

Thank you again for such inspiration and my favourite fabric is pink hatley.
