Summer Giveaway - Kims Colourway

29/07/2014 - Matt Chatterley

It's Summer Time! And the crafting is good!

Kim's Colourway - Flower Bunting

Hi everyone! It's been quite a while since we've blogged - or posted a giveaway - but we're back! Plans are afoot to get the blog going again, but based on the difficulties we have had finding sponsors (as well as our time committments), we are going to drop the giveaways back to one a 'season' for a while.

Kims Colourway - Shark HatThat said, we are still very much on the look out for guest posters - so if you're involved in something exciting (and crafty), or just want to share a bit of your knowledge - or an amazing make - please do get in touch.

We are delighted to welcome back an old friend (as in, one who has been a friend for ages, I'm not insinuating that she's old!) - the wonderful Kim from Kim's Colourway!

The rules are as always.. comments left before midnight (GMT) on Friday 8th August 2014 will be entered into the draw and we'll announce the winner shortly after. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be selected at random.

PS, if you're running your own giveaway, why not add it to our competitions page and get some extra publicity for free? Click here for more information!

Now, over to Kim!

Kim's Colourway - Flower Bunting (detail)

Hi, my name is Kim and I have been running my business, Kims Colourway, for almost 7 years. I’ve always been creative so I have done so many different artist things such as painting, designing, sketching, crocheting, knitting...the list goes on. At the moment, I am crocheting items to sell through Kims Colourway and I’ve just discovered papercutting which I am just doing as a hobby for myself.

Kims Colourway - Letter PillowsI rediscovered crocheting while I was pregnant with my second child and my love for crochet grew from there. I love how I can create something beautiful and sometimes even wearable such as a cardigan from something so simple as wool. I’ve made so many different items over the years but the strangest has got to be a Sorting Hat which was used at a Harry Potter themed craft fair.

I had some trouble deciding what to make for this giveaway because there are just so many ideas to choose from but with some help from Matt and Rosa, we chose this flower bunting. It’s really bright and cheerful, perfect for the summer.
