New Moths & a Giveaway!!!

Hi all, theres been a few more moths flying off my sewing machine this week!
I'm really enjoying these stitches they seem to be flowing very nicely, I will be  exploring some more next week and maybe need to get myself some new threads in all different shades - of browns of course...my old fear of color still looms large!
 I have noticed that I now have 100 lovely people following this blog, which is very exciting from me, so to celebrate Im going to give away one of these moths to a lucky name pulled out of a hat (or teapot)!

The piece I'm going to giveaway is the one in the picture just above, to be in with a chance simply leave me comment below and on Tuesday 10th August at 10pm UK time I will put all the names in a hat and pick one (please make sure I have a way of contacting you) as a way of spreading the word if you tweet or mention this give away in your blog I will add your name twice to the hat, Just let me know if you have done thisxxxx

I shall be putting the other 2 moths & any more that fly out of my machine in my shop ASAP  www.etsy.com/shop/jennymccabe please check it out xxx
