I have to admit that events overtook me and making the little books took longer than I expected. However, if you wait for the drumroll to finish ........... I would like to announce that the winners are ......
Congratulations, your books will be posted to you later this week when I have heard from you both.
Above you can see some of the books that are going out this week, I have more to make for special orders. Here are two that may or may not be going to special bbest friends, Zuda and Pam. (It may be a surprise for them too....)
I would also like to announce a new online course. 'Little Bookies Part 1' will include books similar to those illustrated here, but there will be others too. It will run over 3 sessions, and will be great fun. I know that they are very seductive, so be prepared to become 'besotted' with making tiny books! You can find out more here.

Once again I'm tardy, but this time it was mainly due to my computer problems. Here at last is the new Thread of the Month. This collection will run until the end of March, unless it sells out, of course. It is listed in the sidebar, but I have also listed it on my personal website so that it can be added to a shopping cart if you require more than one item. This collection is once again the fine perle and is for cut lengths in five different colours. The price includes postage.
We are in the process of revamping our websites. Soon both Winifred Cottage and Sassa Lynne will have shopping carts so purchases will be able to be made immediately. There are a few items for sale on the above personal website in the meantime - including the first DVD, and as from today you can also pre-order Level 2 which will be out before Easter.
Is anyone coming to Textiles in Focus next week? From Friday until Sunday we will be at Cottenham Community College near Cambridge. If you would like further information just let me know.
Also, if you missed Talking Threads the first time around it is now being repeated. Watch it at 6pm each Wednesday on Sky channel 171. It is also available on the internet, again, if you need more information or the link either leave a comment or email.

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW FINISHED
You may already have joined in the fun on my other blog. I have to say that I didn't expect such a lovely response, so I've decided to add to the fun and present another offering here. Once again it will be for two tiny handmade books, but these will be different to the others, AND ARE NOT YET MADE! If I have enough time I will actually make three, but at the moment the offer is for TWO PRIZES.
So, what will they look like? Here is one I made a while ago to give you an idea:
Yours may not have the gold netting, but who knows, it may! As with the others the cover will be hand coloured paper with decorations of some sort. Here's another view:
So, if you would like to enter - you know what to do! Leave a comment below before midnight 14th February 2010 UK time. It's open to everyone that reads my blog. Feel free to leave your link if you are also offering something in OWOH, and if you entered the other one you can enter here too, because you won't automatically be entered into this one too. Don't forget, I need to be able to get in touch with you - so I must have some sort of contact details, either via blogger or email etc. It doesn't matter where you live you are eligible to enter - but be prepared to pay any taxes that may be applicable in your part of the world
Don't forget, there are lots of people taking part in this wonderful magic carpet ride, so why not whizz over and take a look at the rest of the gifts on offer too. You'll find the list in the sidebar.
Enjoy the ride.....
